The Red Dot Award won by Polycom for the RealPresence Trio is for Product Design; the Trio includes an exceptionally simple to use and beautifully designed user interface, and includes audio features such as professional sound elimination, including keyboard typing and background noise.

transforms the company’s iconic three-point conference phone, one of the most popular appliances in the history of business meetings, into an easy-to-use, no-compromise videoconferencing and content sharing system. The solution brings enterprise-class video conferencing experiences to spaces would previously be cost prohibitive. In addition to offering the legendary HD audio that customers expect from the industry leader in conference phones, the RealPresence Trio solution is updated with a large full-colour touch screen display and sleek modern lines.  The RealPresence Trio solution offers broad interoperability and deep integration with the leading cloud call control platforms and the most familiar unified communications platforms, including Skype for Business and Microsoft Office 365.

The Red Dot Award is one of the largest design competitions in the world. With 41 experts chosen to stringent rules, including design professionals and specialised design journalists, the judging guarantees very high competence, and is marked against criteria including innovation, functionality and features, ecological impact and professional quality. 

With 41 experts from all around the world, who are chosen according to strict rules, the Red Dot Award: Product Design guarantees a very high judging competence: Only freelance designers, design professors and specialised journalists – but not designers employed at companies potentially participating – are appointed to the jury.

 “With their performances, the Red Dot winners not only demonstrated an extraordinary design quality, but they also showed that design is an integral part of innovative product solutions.”

Professor Dr. Peter Zec, founder and president of the Red Dot Award
