Hi,
Our organization conducts skype interview and we use to make a one to one skype interview with the candidate where other the far site candidate cannot see the remaining panel room members. In order to eradicate these issue we purchased a new polycom HDX 8000.
I am not happy with the way the the far site candidate will use to connect with polycom. i.e by using a Poly Telepresence Software.
 I want a simple way like Gotomeeting or Webex where you just send a meeting link and participant joins the meeting.
Is there are such ways with Polycom HDX 8000 or is there any way to integrate with Skype.

Note: Please give solution other than Microsoft Lync 2010

I would appreciate the help.

Thank

If you are looking for a hosted solution then today Blue Jeans (http://bluejeans.com) can be used to bridge standard H.323 or SIP calls with clients like Skype, but are limited to standard definition or below and is a monthly service you pay for.  In the near future the Polycom CloudAXIS suite will be available in the same hosted model but with greater functionality across a wider array of clients (including Skype).

If you need to host these meetings on your own on-premises equipment the CloudAXIS suite can also be deployed and managed by your own IT department.

Lync 2010 is not an option, as Lync 2013 would need to be used but it does not yet support video interop with Skype clients.  When that is added to Lync 2013 then it can also be used to easily bring standards-based systems like the HDX into calls with Lync and Skype clients.  Another alternative would be to use Lync 2013 (either on-prem or hosted) to have the participants join via Lync Web App browser-embedded client (similar to WebEx).

I have tested BlueJeans. Its Great But I have only one concern, Is it possible  to blue jeans skype account to send the add contact request.

Or is there any possibility with Bluejeans that I can contact the candidate one by one after finishing each interview.

Thanks I appreciate your help in this issue.

No, BlueJeans is limited to the experience you see in the free trial period.  It's a 'meet in the middle' bridging service only.

The best solution for using Skype is to utilize Lync 2013 when it's available with video interop, but that is still a little off.  You'll need to be patient while the rest of the standards-based video industry and Skype become more integrated over time.
