Polycom ContentConnect Solution

Enabling natural content sharing experience across Skype for Business and traditional video systems

Polycom ContentConnect solution delivers native content sharing experience between Skype for Business and non-Skype for Business environments for highly collaborative video meeting experience shared among disparate devices and networks. The ContentConnect is a virtual server application and a critical component of the Polycom RealConnect for Skype for Business solution as it handles contents shared across Skype for Business users and traditional videoconference systems. This innovative approach makes the whole video collaboration experience easy and consistent, which drives user adoption.   

The Polycom ContentConnect works in conjunction with other RealPresence Platform solutions and delivers:

  • High quality, bi-directional content among Skype for Business/Lync users and standards-based video endpoints
  • Content displayed in the proper content stage area for best experience
  • Multiple Skype for Business/Lync clients (desktop, mobile, web app, and Lync Room System) supported due to native Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) support on the ContentConnect Server
  • Polycom RealConnect for Skype for Business simplified workflow including native content sharing experience
  • Supports Microsoft video-based screen sharing (VbSS) to align with Microsoft standards


Polycom ContentConnect is a virtual appliance that enables bi-directional content sharing between Skype for Business users and standards-based video solutions. Skype for Business users, including federated Skype for Business or Office 365 online users, are able to share high quality content with non-Skype for Business video endpoints.

Customers may purchase the ContentConnect license or subscribe to the RealPresence One with Microsoft Lync option. 

Polycom ContentConnect supports Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) and transcodes it so that H.323 and SIP video endpoints can receive dual stream contents (BFCP or H.239).  Content sent to Skype for Business clients is displayed in the proper content stage in high resolution.

Polycom ContentConnect software is a component of the Polycom RealConnect for Skype for Business solution that provides simple scheduling, click-to-join dialing, native multipoint video layout, and bidirectional content sharing between Microsoft and traditional video endpoints and telepresence systems (including Cisco CTS).
