Polycom RealPresence Centro

The first visual collaboration solution purpose-built to put people in the center of collaboration

True collaboration happens when there are no barriers to human interaction and presence. When people gather in a circle, are supported in comfortable seating and have a clear line of sight and sound to every person on the team – whether sitting next to you or on screens.

RealPresence Centro changes the way we meet and collaborate so that the technology is no longer a distraction to engagement and interaction, but a seamless, empowering experience that defies distance. We believe it’s time technology fades into the background, and not our teammates on the screen.

Designed for small groups and classrooms, RealPresence Centro embraces natural human instincts and advanced technology to draw people together into a powerful, collaborative circle, giving everyone equality of contribution regardless of where they are located. It serves as a collaboration and content sharing hub.
