In Las Vegas for InfoComm 2022, AVNation’s Brian Heidgerken is with David Bryan, Chief Technology Officer at Poly. David is excited to be at the show to hear from visitors about their ongoing needs when it comes to working from home, returning to work, and hybrid work.
Poly has been in the video conferencing game from the beginning, so here at InfoComm 2022, they’re excited to show off new pieces that are specifically focused on the hybrid work environment. One of these solutions is the R30, a video bar designed for small and medium-sized rooms compatible with USB. Ideal for any meeting from a huddle to a 4 to 5-person room, the high-quality cameras and clear audio are designed specifically to pick up everyone involved.
Poly has a whole range of video bars, from products meant for one or two participants at home to entire board rooms. The R30 delivers the mid-range flexibility that so many people are looking for today—employees aren’t just going into the office to work, they’re going in to collaborate. They also are not necessarily interested in only taking these video calls from one specified location. Poly is seeing a demand for products that allow consumers to work from open spaces in the office, oftentimes so that participants can be around others as they work.
Given that insight, Poly has other innovations in the works. They’re designing products meant to eliminate extraneous noises using a visual acoustic fence. Their producer AI also helps the cameras to follow participants during a meeting, allowing consumers the freedom to move around as the call goes on.
