Which is Better? Poly Studio X50 or Neat Bar for Zoom Rooms

Posted by Ryan Pinke on

With the introduction of the all-in-one Zoom Rooms appliance, we wanted to do a side-by-side comparison of the Poly X50 and Neat Bar.  Below is a quick video, about 3 minutes, which provides a comparison between the two products.  Both are being used in the same room to provide a better comparison.

What is a Zoom Rooms Appliance?

Zoom Rooms Appliances are purpose-built to make it easier than ever to scale, deploy, and manage Zoom Rooms. It includes everything to video enable a conference room or meeting space.  That means, the camera, audio, computer and room controller are integrated into as few separate products as possible.  In most cases, this means a single wall mounted unit (camera and audio) and controller (compute and console).  These are designed to work seamlessly, with a single cable connecting the two.
