Hands-on testing of an all-in-one video bar for small meeting rooms and company / home offices with native support for leading cloud services.
Founded in 2019, Poly (www.poly.com) is a global communications company headquartered in Santa Cruz, California that offers a portfolio of audio and video communication products and associated services for small, medium, and large organizations. Poly is the result of a rebranding of Plantronics (founded in 1961) following its acquisition of Polycom (founded in 1991) in 2018.
In Q4 2019, Poly announced the Poly Studio X30 – an all-in-one video bar with an integrated speaker, 4-element microphone array, and 4K camera designed for small meeting rooms, huddle rooms, and both company and home offices.
In September 2020, Poly commissioned the Recon Research (RR) team to perform a third-party assessment of the Polycom Studio X30 as a stand-alone device and as a Zoom Rooms system. This document contains the results of our hands-on testing.
