Like a lot of my friends through the pandemic, I’ve been residing off a Logitech Brio digicam, which was thought-about the very best available in the market till just lately.  The issue is that Logitech didn’t appear to grasp how vital this digicam had change into and refused to assist it correctly.  (It has driver points with AMD-based PCs, the corporate received’t handle them, the preliminary utility assist ended, and far of it doesn’t work anymore. 

Most different cameras available on the market arrived earlier than COVID-29 and have been extra designed for rare use when touring — not for everlasting use from a house workplace.  Sure, you will get convention room programs and adapt them for the house, however that may be a depraved costly path — and folks don’t have convention rooms at house. 

Now, Poly has despatched me its new P15 Studio P15 video bar, and it’s the very best desktop house conferencing possibility I’ve examined to this point. 

Let’s discuss how this expertise will probably evolve.

The Poly Studio P15 intimately

The Poly Studio P15 appears to be like like a miniature model of the digicam system Poly introduced out earlier for convention rooms.  It’s about two-thirds as large and has a mechanical lens cowl slightly than the detachable one its convention room setup makes use of.  This makes it too small to placed on a TV however too large for a laptop computer. It is good for a desktop monitor, although, and sits on prime of my 49-in. Dell monitor properly. (FYI: Dell is a shopper of mine)

As a result of it may be used as a USB hub, you’ll be able to clear up a number of the wiring behind your desk (which I must do, it’s a large number again there). As for the mechanical lens cowl, you twist the lens encompass to shut, providing peace of thoughts for those who concern your PC has been hacked and a few distant hacker desires to stare at you all day.
