During Zoomtopia 2021, Poly announced two additions to its family of video conferencing solutions that are designed for larger conference rooms or town hall sized meeting rooms.

The Poly Studio X70 and Poly Studio E70 feature Poly DirectorAI technology. DirectorAI is the brain of the E70 and X70 and controls dual cameras with 4K sensors and the use of Acoustic Fence and NoiseBlockAI so that speakers can be seen and heard clearly.

Both solutions will support Zoom Rooms Smart Gallery. This brings meeting equality to medium and large rooms by using AI to create a gallery view, and send up to three unique video streams to frame up in-room participants to remote attendees so speakers can be framed face-to-face. There is also added security with a motorised, integrated electronic privacy shutter

The Zoom-certified Poly Studio E70 is an intelligent camera that provides an improved video conferencing experience for businesses. The dual lenses allow for varying degrees of Field of View (FOV), and it is meant to be able to use DirectorAI to manage automatic transitions, framing, and tracking of speakers during video conferencing calls. It can’t work on its own however as it is only a camera with four integrated mics and needs a PC or another Poly solution like the Poly G7500 to get the video conferencing apps going.

The Studio X70 video bar is expected to receive its Zoom certification by the end of the year. Like the Studio X30 we’ve covered before, it is a video conferencing solution that works without the need for a PC. Users can have a video conference by connecting it to a tablet, or even just a touch-enabled TV.


Pricing and availability
