With the rise in video conferencing, we’re also seeing a corresponding increase in tools to help us better connect and manage these calls.

Designed to work from anywhere, the Poly Sync 20, Poly Sync 40 and Poly Sync 60 speakerphones have USB and Bluetooth connectivity options and use “proprietary microphone technology to track the talker, not the noise”.

For example, the Poly Sync 20 and Poly Sync 20+ have a three-mic array that can track the position of users in a small room and use digital signal processing to enhance the voice of the speaker while blocking out other “noise” so that the speakers' voice comes across clear and sharp.

Also included is voice integration to Siri and Google voice assistant.

 

All in the details

With a three-microphone array mentioned earlier, the Poly Sync 20 and Poly Sync 20+ speakerphones can be a personal speakerphone, a portable music speaker and a smartphone charger all in one.

Advanced digital signal processing algorithms ensure both sides of the call can be heard clearly, simultaneously, and a programmable button allows users to personalise their Poly Sync 20 with their favourite functions like music pause/play or voice.

The Poly Sync 20+ includes an additional BT600 USB adapter for additional Bluetooth connectivity options with older devices.

The 3200mAH battery gives the Poly Sync 20 series a talk time of up to 20 hours.

The Poly Sync 40 speakerphone also has three microphones that allow for a greater voice pickup range as well as smartphone charging capabilities to support today’s hybrid work environments. IT or the user can choose to wirelessly daisy chain two units to adapt and expand the reach within varied conference room sizes. The automatic Bluetooth unpairing option allows users to quickly disconnect Bluetooth devices after a meeting.

The battery in the Poly Sync 40 also provides up to 20 hours of talk time.

The big brother of the series, the Poly Sync 60, includes all that makes the

Poly Sync 20 and Poly Sync 40 special but is designed for larger meeting spaces and conference rooms.

With a six-microphone array and intelligent LED features, the device can automatically track voices within the meeting room and adapt to make sure the other end of the call has a great audio experience. With its two large built-in speakers, the Poly Sync 60 easily fills the room with rich, crystal clear audio. Connect a USB video camera to the device for complete AV connectivity.
