Poly Delivers Video, Voice, and AI-based Software Solutions to Enhance Virtual Collaboration and Meeting Experience.
Poly, an HP Inc. (NYSE: HPQ) company, announced new pro-grade audio and video solutions with AI-driven software to bring meetings to life.
“HP is committed to delivering solutions that eliminate the barriers inside and outside the room so you can look and sound your best,” said Andy Rhodes, Division President of Hybrid Systems, HP. “We are thrilled to offer the next generation of audio and video technology, enhanced with innovative AI capabilities, so everyone can be seen and heard with total clarity.”
As more people return to the office, the Poly Studio X52 all-in-one video bar maximizes the virtual meeting experience in mid-sized meeting spaces. The new Poly DirectorAI smart camera technology offers automated camera framing modes like group, speaker, and person framing. The 4K, 20MP camera ensures clear visibility of every participant, reaching even the farthest corners of the conference room without any image distortion. Updates to the AI-driven software for group and speaker framing capabilities include the new Poly Director AI Perimeter feature and other audio enhancements. The Poly Studio X52 is certified for Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom, with pending certification for native support for BlueJeans by Verizon, GoTo, and RingCentral.
The Poly Video OS provides a unified experience across all Poly video conferencing devices. With its latest update, Poly Video OS 4.1 delivers new features and improvements:
- For better meeting room experiences with glass walls, Poly DirectorAI Perimeter technology ensures precise participant framing. IT administrators can input room dimensions, allowing AI-powered technology to define parameters accurately and prevent capturing faces beyond glass walls or windows. Additionally, Sound Reflection Reduction minimizes echoes and reverberations caused by glass and hard surfaces.
- The Poly Studio E70 smart camera can now connect directly to the Poly G7500 modular video conferencing system using a standard Ethernet cable for flexible room configurations and easier installation. The Ethernet cable can power the Studio E70 camera and extend up to 100 meters.
- The Poly TC10 touch control panel now supports meeting control for Microsoft Teams Rooms on Android. It can also function as a room scheduling panel for Microsoft Teams, allowing better visibility into room availability and on-the-spot room reservations. The TC10 control panel is now certified for Microsoft Teams.
