A Case for the Poly Studio X50

In business, it should surprise no one that effective communication and collaboration are essential for success. Almost every business has a need to host Microsoft Teams Meetings. Two video conferencing solutions that have gained significant attention for me in recent times are the Poly Studio X50 and Microsoft Teams on Android. Let’s delve into why this combination is a game-changer for modern businesses.

About Poly Studio X50

Poly Studio X50 is a cutting-edge video conferencing system designed to revolutionize the way teams collaborate. With its sleek design and advanced features, it offers a seamless and immersive conferencing experience. One of the key factors that sets the Poly Studio X50 apart is its exceptional audio and video quality. Equipped with Poly’s renowned audio technology, it ensures crystal-clear sound, eliminating background noise and echoes. The integrated camera delivers stunning HD video. The camera has multiple settings and can track who in the room is talking, making every participant feel important.

Setting up the Poly Studio X50 is a breeze, thanks to its user-friendly interface and straightforward installation process. Ultimately, it’s a sound bar with a camera and microphone and a tablet that pairs with it. You’ll need to set up a room resource in M365, license it with a Microsoft Teams Room Standard or Microsoft Teams Room Pro license, and assign a phone number. Then the Poly Studio X50 gets a DHCP address which you can connect to from a web browser. You’ll use the web browser to configure IP settings, choose Microsoft Teams as a provider, and configure admin credentials. Since the device uses Microsoft Teams on Android, it will just ask you to sign in using the M365 account/password you created for the room resource. Firmware updates can be managed from the Teams Admin Center. Once you’ve gone through the process once, it’s easy to deploy these in just a few hours.
