Poly delivers broadcast-quality video conferencing experience with Poly DirectorAI technology, which uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to deliver real-time automatic transitions, speaker framing, and tracking. Poly solutions for Microsoft Teams also feature NoiseBlockAI technology, which blocks out distracting background noise (e.g., keyboard typing, paper shuffling, plastic bag rustling sounds), and Acoustic Fence technology which creates a sound barrier to focus on the speaker and not the noise. Poly’s DirectorAI capabilities can be found across small, medium, and large room solutions to provide meeting equity for everyone across the entire Microsoft Teams Rooms on Windows, and Android offerings.
Poly has been working alongside Microsoft for more than 15 years and has a broad portfolio of devices certified for Microsoft Teams available worldwide – from headsets and speakerphone devices to video conferencing gear.
