“Meetings are happening everywhere - from conference rooms to personal workspaces and everything in between. People crave equitable and consistent video meeting experiences no matter where they are,” said Laura Marx, Vice President, Global Alliance And Product Marketing, Poly. “Poly DirectorAI technology intelligently frames in-conference room meeting participants so anyone not in the room can easily track the conversation.”

“Today’s workplace needs have changed, and Microsoft Teams Rooms is introducing inclusive collaboration experiences through concepts like front row,” says Albert Kooiman, Senior Director of Microsoft Teams Devices Partner Engineering and Certification at Microsoft Corporation. “The new lineup of Poly Room Solutions for Teams Rooms brings users to the forefront of the future of meetings with optimized room views, plus speaker tracking and framing for a more equitable and dynamic meeting experience.”

Oftentimes conference room participants either appear small and are difficult to hear, or the person close to the camera looks fine while the person sitting at the far end of the table looks too small. This leads to other meeting participants finding the experience to be inequitable, uninviting or dis-engaging. Poly’s DirectorAI technology overcomes this disparity and delivers a high-performing meeting experience in any size space.

Poly Studio Kits for Microsoft Teams Rooms come in a variety of configurations, and can comfortably equip any meeting room size to deliver an equitable experience for all:
