Audio Streaming on a realPresence Trio

Hi all, I'm new here so apologies if this is in the wrong place.


I've been tasked with repurposing one of our polycom relpresence trios into an audio streaming device, capable of taking in the audio from the mics and sending it onwards to a webserver or API endpoint.


Ideally I'd like to use the built in ethernet/WiFi to stream audio data through to a websocket running on a web server. If this is not possible, I'd like to be able to repurpose the phone to act simply as a microphone that can be plugged into a laptop that then performs the same function, using the realpresence trio simply as a microphone device. Theres's no restrictions on network, etc, so we could use the device as a VOIP device.

I've had a look at the API documentation and I've not immediately found anything that could do this for me, so Iw as wondering if this community could me here!


Thanks in advance for any help

Hello @xetidani ,


Welcome to the Poly Community.

End-Users will not have access to such API as this is Poly internal only. The easiest way would be to connect to a PC via USB.


Another method could be using Asterisk on a Raspberry Pi as an example and use some of that functionality. I am quite sure you can google some examples using the phone registered via SIP to convert the Audio Stream into another format. Asterisk is very versatile.


Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.
