we are pleased to announce the UC Software 188.8.131.5241 release for both the Polycom Trio 8800 and Polycom Trio 8500.
UC Software 5.5.3 enables users to discover and connect to Polycom Trio 8800 over AirPlay using Bluetooth when the Polycom Trio system and Apple device are on different networks. When Bluetooth is enabled on the Apple device on Polycom Trio 8800, users can connect to a Polycom Trio 8800 that is on a different network and share content during in-room meetings using AirPlay.
While the Apple device and Polycom Trio 8800 can be on different networks, the two networks must be able to communicate in order for the Polycom Trio to display as an available AirPlay on the Apple device.
When this feature is enabled, the Bluetooth radio on Polycom Trio 8800 is automatically turned on, as long as Bluetooth is enabled on the system.
