“Evolved and expanded features available on Microsoft Teams Rooms for Android ”

Video is the way forward

Today, video conferencing is the solution for workforces looking for a richer way to engage and collaborate with internal and external stakeholders.

The way forward

Video is not just a temporary fix during the COVID-19 crisis.  Rather, it has unlocked more opportunities for industries. The video adaption will continue further in 2021 and organizations should look to enabling their workforce with the right tools and training to take advantage of the video platforms to improve employee and customer experiences.

Hybrid working is here to stay

Video services and collaboration tools keep virtual workforces connected, driving productivity for work, but also bringing the virtual workforce together. By hybrid working, it is also necessary to harness audio and video calls to enable more social interaction. Colleagues coming together over coffee, lunch, sharing experiences, or simply creating virtual moments to chat is essential for a productive workday.

The Studio X family

The Poly Studio X Family video bars are all-in-one bars for small and medium rooms. They are radically simple to use with support for leading cloud video services (Microsoft Teams, Zoom) built right in. There is no PC or Mac required for usage.
