In today’s fast-paced world, effective communication is the key to success. Whether you’re working remotely or collaborating with a global team, video meetings have become an integral part of our professional lives. Google has announced a new feature that will change video meetings – Dual Display support for Google Meet on the Poly Studio X Series.
Video meetings have become the norm in the modern workplace. They bridge geographical gaps, allowing teams to collaborate seamlessly. However, one common challenge has persisted: limited screen real estate on a single display. When you’re in a video meeting using a single display, shared content dominates the screen. This often means that the view of meeting participants is minimized, impacting the overall engagement and communication flow.
Enhancing Meeting Productivity with Dual Displays
The lack of Dual Display support for Google Meet in the Poly Studio X Series has been resolved. With dual displays, you can see more meeting participants, presentations, and documents simultaneously, enhancing your ability to stay focused and engaged during meetings.
During a video meeting with dual displays, the primary and secondary screens will display all meeting participants, including the view of the local room. When a participant shares a presentation, it will enlarge onto one screen display, while the participant views remain on the other screen display. This setup offers a dynamic and immersive meeting experience.
Getting Started with Poly Studio:
To activate Google Meet on Poly Android devices, administrators must obtain Google Meet hardware licences. Reach out to a Google Meet Hardware reseller for further details. Additionally, Studio X Series appliances should be updated to Poly OS 4.01 for full compatibility.
The Poly Studio X Series of video bars enables end users to use dual displays effortlessly. All you need to do is connect a second display to the device’s display port, and the Poly Studio X Series will instantly identify it as a secondary display. This seamless setup removes all complexities.
This exciting feature is available to all Google Workspace customers using Poly Studio X50, X52, and X70 devices. Please note that Poly Studio X30 supports only a single monitor, while X50, X52, and X70 devices fully support dual display functionality.
