Power Hybrid Classrooms with the Poly Studio USB
Educators who teach students from their homes want the freedom to move around just like they do in the classroom. But when they’re using cameras on PCs and laptops, getting up and pointing to something on a board or a makeshift chalkboard takes them out of frame and audio quickly degrades.
The Poly Studio video bar solves this problem by delivering powerful audio and incredibly sharp video through a single USB cable. Teachers can use any video platform of their choosing, from Zoom or Google to Skype or Microsoft Teams. The Poly Studio presenter-mode tracking feature lets the camera follow naturally, from a sitting position, to walking about, to anywhere in-between. See how Boston Public Schools implemented this solution here.
