Google Meet updates Poly Studio X Video Bars for Android-based video appliances

Using Poly's suite of solutions, customers will be able to deliver immersive meeting experiences across Google Meet, Google Voice, and Chromebooks.

It was recently announced that Poly, a global provider of audio and video solutions for the professional market, will be launching the first Android-based, single-codec video appliances for Google Meet as part of the company's Studio X series as part of its Studio X family of video bars.

As part of Poly's growing lineup of devices certified for Google Meet, Google Voice, and Chrome OS, the Studio X Family adds to Poly's growing list of devices that are designed to look and sound their best on every call.

The Poly Studio X family of products, which includes the Poly Studio X30, Poly Studio X50, Studio X70, and the TC8 controller (an 8-inch high-resolution touchscreen that lets Google Meet customers access meetings with ease), have been announced by the manufacturer. The first Android-based appliances will offer Google Meet native functionality and deliver a streamlined, purpose-built meeting room experience based on Google Meet.

Poly Studio X Family

What are Poly Studio X Family Features?

Each video bar in the Poly Studio X family features smart, broadcast quality video for meeting rooms of all sizes with innovative capabilities, including:

  • Poly DirectorAI – Using artificial intelligence and machine learning, smart camera technology provides real-time automatic transitions, framing and tracking that are based on artificial intelligence and machine learning.
  • Audio innovations such as NoiseBlockAI and Acoustic Fence technologies that block-out unwanted background noise.
  • People framing – A Poly DirectorAI feature that gives an up-close view of each meeting participant, Poly is the only partner that delivers people framing with advanced AI capabilities for Google Meet (available on the Studio X70).

“Poly’s innovation across their pro-grade audio and video solutions are the ultimate equalizers for a consistently great meeting experience, which is why we chose to partner with Poly as the first Android-based video appliances certified for Google Meet,” says David Citron, director of Google Meet and Voice. “Together, we are committed to equipping today’s hybrid workforce with the technology that takes meetings to the next level.”

“Poly and Google Workspace are celebrating this milestone of providing an intuitive and powerful enterprise-grade video conferencing solution for Google Meet customers,” says Chris Moss, head of product and portfolio management, Poly.

Poly Studio Achieving Meeting Equity

How does Poly Achieve Meeting Equity?

According to a recent report issued by Frost & Sullivan, top concerns as it relates to the future of hybrid work are lack of meeting equity, lack of proper technology and distractions at home. Poly says its suite of pro-grade audio and video gear is thus designed to eliminate distracting background noise and deliver total meeting equity.

Poly offers a wide range of Google Cloud certified solutions that provide users with flexibility and choice, regardless of location or workstyle, including:

  • Google Meet: In addition to Poly Studio USB video bar, and Poly Studio P5 personal webcam, we also offer Voyager headsets and Poly Sync speakerphones, which are all certified by Google Meet as collaboration devices.
  • Google Voice: Poly provides a long list of devices that are certified for use with Google Voice, and is the only manufacturer of desk phones that is certified to work with Google Voice. Among the products offered by Google Voice are headsets, speakerphones, and the Poly Studio P5 webcam.
  • Chrome OS: The Poly portfolio of Chromebook-compatible headsets includes headsets from the Blackwire, Encore Pro, and Savi headset families, which have all been certified to work with Chromebooks. As part of this package, there is also videoconferencing gear like the Poly Studio P15 that can be used in focus rooms and personal spaces.

There is a Poly Lens App available on PC and Mac for all Poly devices that are certified for Google Meet and Google Voice, which allows IT managers to remotely manage and troubleshoot Poly devices as well as push software updates. It is estimated that ChromeOS devices will be able to use the Poly Lens App in Q2 of 2023.

It is expected that the Poly Studio X family of products will be available worldwide by January 2023. All other certified devices listed above are currently available.
