Microsoft Teams Interoperability with PolyCom Video Conferencing
Pacira is the leading provider of non-opioid pain management and regenerative health solutions dedicated to advancing and improving patient outcomes. Their in-depth knowledge of non-opioid pain management, coupled with their passion for delivering improved patient care, drives their commitment to providing solutions that address unmet medical needs and improve clinical results.
Pacira recently constructed a brand new, ground-up building on their campus in San Diego, CA. They wanted to focus heavily on integrating AV into their meeting, huddle, and board rooms to allow for more effective team collaboration. Their new conference rooms were outfitted with top-of-the-line microphones, control panels, and video equipment that allows for better day-to-day productivity.
Pacira’s IT department was looking to integrate Microsoft Teams with Polycom’s RealConnect Interoperability cloud-based solution, which would allow new and existing video conferencing systems to join Microsoft Teams meetings. They also needed the design and installation of a multi-conference room system with room combining functionality.
The AV systems in these conference rooms will be used as a template to roll out to other Pacira Pharmaceuticals offices around the country. These designs will serve as the new standard for video conferencing in the new post-COVID society.
Pacira opted for Polycom real presence group video conferencing systems with Barco ClickShare wireless presentation devices. Shure MXA-710 Linear Array digital ceiling microphones were run on a Dante AV network with Biamp digital signal processors to allow for room combining and acoustic echo cancellation (AEC) for clean sounding video conferencing. NEC 98” 4k Ultra HD commercial LED displays were added for a high-end video experience.
A Crestron control system with touch panels and room occupancy sensors were used to intelligently and automatically turn on/off the AV system once the training room is occupied or once the meeting is over and the participants have left the room.
Microsoft Teams integrates with Polycom video conferencing codecs using Polycom RealConnect Interoperability cloud based solution. This enables Polycom video conferencing hardware to join Microsoft Teams meeting as well as simplifying scheduling and meeting management.
