Updated Q&A Post about Polycom RealPresence Group 300 Video Conferencing Capabilites

I recently wrote this post, VoIP Q & A: Phoenix Audio Speakerphone and Polycom RealPresence Group 300 Video Conferencing, in which I included some misinformation about the capabilities of the Polycom RealPresence Group 300 video conferencing system.

This question had been submitted to VoIP Supply:

“Is it possible to use the Polycom Realpresence Group 300 with online services such as Skype or Go To Meeting?”

I mistakenly wrote that “yes” you can use Skype and GoToMeeting with the RealPresence Group 300 because it is standards based.

Rookie mistake.

Thankfully Michael Graves of Graves on SOHO Technology called me out on it in his post, A VoIP Supply Q&A Batting .500!.

I was confusing the Polycom RealPresence CloudAXIS Suite with “standards based.”

Click here for my original, and now updated, post and click here to read Graves’ full explanation of the differences between desktop and room-based video conferencing solutions.

Thanks again to Graves for pointing me in the right direction and helping us all get the right information!
