Key Term Definitions
Acoustic Clarity Technology:
This Polycom patented technology allows you to enjoy instantaneous natural conversation. When paired with a full duplex speakerphone, echo is eliminated and both callers are able to speak simultaneously without experiencing voice dropouts. The voice clarity on conference systems that feature this technology is incredibly crisp and clear.

Analog is the original telephone technology, a system that converts air vibrations (like those created by the human voice) into similar electrical frequencies. Analog lines can support phones, fax machines, and modems and are typically found in homes or small office settings. Analog systems measure data in one continuous variable while digital breaks down and manipulates the data. One of the advantages of analog systems is that they dot not require a filter for band-limiting. Several SoundStation models operate on an analog system with features that are specifically designed for day to day communication.

Cardioid Microphones:
All microphones have directional characteristics, which are determined by the way a microphone picks up sounds. Microphones can pick up signals from several directions or from one focused point. A cardioid microphone, the most popular of conferencing systems, picks up sound/signals primarily from the front of the microphone. When the pattern of cardioid sound pickup is graphed the shape resembles that of a heart, hence the name. These microphones focus on the sound in front of them and lessen ambient noise from the back or sides.

Echo Cancellation and Suppression:
With this technology you are able to enjoy echo free communication. With the cancellation and suppression processes, information is only sent across the line when someone is actually speaking. So when a person stops talking the signal is cut off, leaving no room for background noise to filter in and create an echo.

Full Duplex Operation:
The full duplex feature allows simultaneous flow of audio signals between your conferencing phone and that of the outside caller. Polycom systems carry a full duplex speakerphone, which can transmit and receive audio signals at the same time, in both directions.
