Polycom HD Voice

Polycom HD Voice delivers over twice the clarity of ordinary phone calls for life-like, vibrant conversations. It's like switching from AM radio to CD-quality audio. The difference is so astounding, you will never want to go back to regular phone calls.

This increased clarity enables much more natural conversations, which significantly boosts recognition,  enhances productivity and reduces fatigue. It's like being in the same room with the other participants on the call. You can hear every word without repeating, which saves time and cuts down on misunderstandings. User satisfaction is also increased by reducing frustration during phone conversations.

  • Wideband technology for over twice the clarity of ordinary phone calls
  • Polycom Acoustic Clarity™ Technology combines next generation industry-leading full duplex, echo cancellation, and noise reduction with advanced voice processing
  • Best-in-class system design, bringing all these software components together with hardware design for a total solution that maximizes the overall sound quality
