RealPresence Distributed Media Application (DMA) Intelligent call control engine managing video across the distributed workforce

  • Scalability architected to meet enterprise needs
  • Reliability and redundant systems you can count on
  • Interoperability across devices and protocols maximizing your investment
  • Firewall traversal ensuring no one is left out of the conversation


Demanding environment? Challenge met.

Distributed Media Application (DMA) is a network-based software application that manages and distributes calls across collaboration networks. Utilizing intelligent algorithms, DMA dynamically routes calls throughout the secured network based on priority, class of service, resource availability and network outage with highly efficient load balancing and virtualization of bridging resources.

We work everywhere that you do

Poly video solutions make meetings a breeze. Use cloud video apps for a full experience with all the features you know and love. Or use standards-based SIP and H.323 compatibility to connect to different cloud video services throughout your day. 

Poly works seamlessly with whichever cloud video service you choose

Having the opportunity to remove the impediment that distance represents, and bringing people together so they can resolve issues and begin to work collaboratively, is really important.
