Poly launches smart devices to elevate online meetings

By Kenn Anthony Mendoza

Video and voice solutions Poly introduces smart devices Poly Studio R30 video bar, Poly Sync 10 speakerphone, and enhancements to the Poly Lens platform to help users in the distributed workforce.

The product announcements come timely as Poly launches its first e-store on Amazon. The online store will provide access to communication solutions for remote and hybrid workers.

The Poly Sync 10 will be available on the e-store in addition to select products from the Voyager wireless headsets, Blackwire wired USB headsets, and the Studio P personal video bars and web cameras.

“The ability to deliver a seamless and equitable experience for today’s modern workforce is not only critical for driving business success, but also happier and more productive employees,” says Poly APAC senior director Bill Zeng.

“Although organisations have started to announce return-to-office plans, relying on solutions that were successful pre-pandemic will no longer cut it,” Zeng says.

Zeng says Poly’s products combined with Poly Director AI smart camera technology help employees look their best while employers can benefit from delivering meeting equity for hybrid and office workers alike.

“We want to solve the dilemma of working from anywhere, and to create equity between those in the room and those who aren’t, by providing our customers the professional grade gear they need to see and be seen, hear and be heard clearly no matter where they are,” says Poly APAC director consumer of etail Charlie Harb.

Poly’s line-up of video conferencing is armed with Poly DirectorAI technology, which uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to deliver real-time automatic transitions, group framing and speaker tracking, presenter and conversation mode, while its NoiseBlockAI and Acoustic Fence technologies block-out unwanted background noise.

The newest addition to the Poly Studio Series is the Poly Studio R30 smart USB video bar a plug-and-play device that comes equipped with Poly DirectorAI technology to ensure everyone is seen clearly with pinpoint-accurate group and speaker framing.

Poly is expanding its line-up of devices for Microsoft Teams Rooms on Windows to include the Poly Studio R30 Small Room Kit, optimised for smaller meeting rooms. The Poly Studio R30 works with the cloud-based video provider of your choice, is certified by Zoom, and will be Microsoft Teams certified by June 2022.

Poly Studio R30 video bar features include:

● 4K camera with 120-degree field of view so meeting participants are seen clearly
● Poly DirectorAI smart camera technology that can frame everyone in the room
● Advanced audio with NoiseBlock AI and Acoustic Fence to block-out unwanted background noise
● Wi-Fi device capabilities for remote IT management, reducing the need for additional management software in the room
● End-users have the option to personalise settings for their workspace

For larger meeting rooms, the Poly Studio E70 camera and Studio X70 video bar are adding a new Poly DirectorAI mode called people framing.

People framing mode provides close-ups for each meeting participant in the room, which are displayed in gallery mode. People framing mode will be available on Studio E70 and Studio X70 starting in June 2022.

In addition to the Poly Studio Small Room Kit for Microsoft Teams, Poly is delivering added flexibility for its entire line-up of Teams Rooms on Windows: a USB extender and bring your own device (BYOD) options for more flexible room deployments and seamless connections to user’s laptops for any video app, and a Camera Control app so users can easily adjust the camera experience or change Poly DirectorAI modes.

The Poly Sync 10, the newest member of the Sync family, is a plug-and-play USB device. Its two-microphone steerable array reduces surrounding noise and delivers audio. The Poly Sync 10 is certified by Microsoft and Zoom and works with the cloud-based meeting platform of your choosing.

● Reliable, enterprise-grade hi-fi audio and power amplifier for calls and music
