Mersive Solstice: The Polycom Alternative

Solstice is the most powerful and flexible wireless collaboration platform, and it is also affordable for every meeting space – approximately 60% the price of Poly Pano. Both Solstice and Pano offer support for Airplay, Miracast, and steaming via dedicated user apps, but Solstice also includes other capabilities required to support core collaboration use cases, such as session moderation and multi-room collaboration.

 

Solstice vs. Polycom Pano Data Sheet

More than just a Wireless Collaboration Tool

Beyond wireless collaboration, Solstice offers value-add features and integrations that are missing from Pano – such as room calendar integration, digital signage playback, and support for rooms configured with dual displays – to deliver more ROI from meeting spaces. Solstice’s superior feature set and significantly lower price point make it the cost-versus-capability leader in market and the clear choice compared to Poly Pano.

Enterprise Readiness

Solstice Pods are fully IT-compliant and scalable to any number of rooms, providing enterprises with all of the security, management, and configuration options they need to be successful starting on day one and through global rollouts.

Batch configuration and updates are supported through a centralized management tool, and deployment monitoring, alerts, and meeting analytics are facilitate ongoing oversight of all the Solstice Pods on the network as well as optimization of meeting spaces for usability, productivity, and ROI. While Pano includes some enterprise capabilities, it lacks features like meeting analytics and room calendar integration to derive full maximum value from meeting spaces.

Ease of use, adoption, and ROI

Mersive Solstice has been designed and refined to deliver the best possible user experience in order to drive adoption and ROI. Solstice users can share any amount of content to the display, and Solstice delivers the same, intuitive user experience from every device as well as the ability for every connected user to arrange the layout of content on the room display from their devices. Polycom Pano suffers from low usability scores overall. Pano does not provide a consistent user experience across device platforms, is limited to a maximum of 5 content sources, and, does not allow users to arrange layout of content on display from their devices. Solstice delivers the industry-leading in-room meeting experience, and Mersive’ s meeting analytics service, Kepler, provides data driven insights into adoption, meeting space utilization, and ROI.
