Polycom, Inc. (Nasdaq: PLCM), the global leader in open, standards-based unified communications and collaboration (UC&C), today announced that South Korea’s National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) is using Polycom® RealPresence® video collaboration solutions to improve communication and collaboration among emergency response teams in 17 cities and provinces nationwide. With the Polycom solutions, teams can meet and share content face-to-face in one video collaboration session with any number of remote teams and distant locations. This accelerates decision making during crises and improves the quality of the decisions because of the on-demand access to experts and specialists, no matter where they are located.
NEMA deployed Polycom’s video collaboration solutions, including the Polycom® HDX® 9000 room system to quickly connect the central disaster and safety countermeasures teams based at headquarters with government agencies and disaster control centers nationwide. Teams in 17 cities and provinces nationwide, including in Busan, Daegu, Incheon, Daejeon, Gwangju and Sejong City, are seamlessly collaborating with colleagues at headquarters in Seoul for faster and more immediate response to disaster situations such as typhoons, floods, and snowstorms. The deployment of video collaboration has also helped bring together related parties and key decision makers from government ministries and the National Police Agency in managing national emergencies and controlling countermeasures, while enabling the exchange of real-time information, such as videos from affected areas, recovery status, and on-site reporting.
