Poly Intros Pro-Grade Devices for Remote Workforce

May 16, 2022

Remote work is becoming the norm today. No longer just a perk of those working for tech companies, more people than ever are making use of today’s digital technologies to have a better work-life balance. With this transformation, the need for new solutions that take platforms and capabilities to the next level is needed.

Poly, a provider of audio and video products for meetings, is responding with the introduction of new pro-grade solutions that company officials say have been designed to meet the needs of today’s distributed workforce.

Included as part of the pro-grade offering are: Poly Studio R30 video bar, Poly Sync 10 speakerphone, and enhancements to the Poly Lens platform all targeted at delivering exceptional employee experiences as they connect and communicate from anywhere.

"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," said Beau Wilder, senior vice president and GM of video collaboration, Poly. "Although organizations have started to announce return-to-office plans, relying on solutions that were successful pre-pandemic will no longer cut it.

Whether workers are connecting from offices, homes, or anywhere else, technology that works as it should and delivers a seamless experience regardless if present in the same room or connecting via video from afar is now vital.  Poly seeks to drive that consistency of experience.

Combined with updates to its DirectorAI smart camera technology, employees can look and sound their best on conferencing sessions and employers can deliver meeting equity for all workers.

Another reason for businesses to upgrade their technologies is to meet today’s modern workplace needs. Returning to the office post pandemic shutdowns has created new expectations for video conferencing.

The Poly Studio Series pro-grade video conferencing devices together with Poly DirectorAI mean meeting rooms of all sizes can have access to real-time automatic transitions, group framing and speaker tracking, presenter and conversation mode. They also include NoiseBlockAI and Acoustic Fence technologies so all unwanted background noise is removed.

To add to its line up of offerings like the Poly Studio E70 camera and Studio X70 video bar which are designed for larger meeting rooms, the Poly Studio R30 has been introduced for smaller meeting rooms. Already certified by Zoom, and with Microsoft Teams certification coming in June 2022, this smart USB video bar is plug-and-play, comes with a 4K camera with 120-degree field, Poly DirectorAI smart camera technology, NoiseBlock AI and Acoustic Fence to remove background noise - is Wifi capable and can be personalized for specific user settings.

It’s also adding a new Poly DirectorAI mode for the E70 model that has “people framing” mode offering close-ups of each meeting participant in the room, displayed in gallery mode.

Added to its Sync family of speakerphones, is the Poly Sync 10, a plug-and-play USB speakerphone for better home office communications. Converting a small space into a conference room reduces surrounding noise and delivers high-quality enterprise-grade audio. It’s also certified by Microsoft and Zoom and works seamlessly with other cloud-based meeting platforms.

Finally, the company has enhanced its Poly Lens, a cloud-based platform for device control with the addition of the new Studio R30 video bar and Sync 10 speakerphone. Users have access to management tools for provisioning, monitoring, and troubleshooting Poly devices from any location.
