Polycom Reveals New VVX Business Media Phones

February 28, 2013

Polycom (News - Alert), Inc. has revealed two new Business Media Phones. These new models, the Polycom VVX 300 and VVX 400, are made to improve collaboration and productivity in office and cubicle environments, and extend Polycom’s portfolio of VVX Business Media Phones.


The Polycom VVX 300 is an entry-level business media phone made with six programmable line keys. The VVX 400 has twice that amount, as well as a larger color screen. No matter which you choose, you’ll get an easy to use phone with simple installation and setup that can be deployed on existing networks. They can integrate other business and UC&C applications through the provided APIs, making the phones a natural part of one’s work environment.

Furthermore, Polycom has also launched new plug-in expansion modules for the VVX models 300 through 600, offering more programmable line keys. These will help users manage a large amount of calls and contacts at once, causing more organization and less stress. Each VVX Expansion Module has 40 programmable line keys

It also offers the Polycom VVX Color Expansion module for high-resolution LCD. Each module contains three pages of line keys, and each page has 28 illuminated bi-color programmable line keys.

“Polycom VVX Business Media Phones are an affordable, enterprise-grade solution that seamlessly connects with employees’ existing workflow and applications, such as calendars and address books, which can help workers in any industry be more productive,” says Jim Kruger (News - Alert), Polycom’s senior VP of Product and Solutions Marketing. “Having now shipped 10 million audio devices, our conference phones have brought billions of people together for more productive work outcomes. The Polycom VVX 300 and VVX 400 Business Media Phones integrate into a wide range of unified communications environments and have the industry’s best sound quality through features like Polycom HD Voice and patented Polycom Acoustic Clarity (News - Alert) Technology for crystal-clear calls without echoes, drop-outs or feedback.”

Polycom is pretty much synonymous with quality phone equipment at this point, so these new business media phones are promising. They’ll be made available in April, so if you’re in the market for new phones for an office or cubicle environment, they’re worth a look.
