Poly (Poly) is a brand that was launched after headphone maker Plantronics acquired Polycom video conferencing in 2018. The company announced a new line of office equipment fit for the home office era.

There's a personal webcam for the Poly Studio P5 ($ 130), a personal video section for the Poly Studio P15 for $ 600, and a personal conference monitor for the Poly Studio P21 for $ 815.

The 21-inch screen is particularly interesting and has been designed to make the most of video calling.

The screen has an integrated webcam with a physical privacy screen, built-in microphone, and stereo speakers. There are two ambient lights on the left and the right that keep your face bright during video calls.

The monitor stand can be used as a wireless charger. At the bottom of the screen there are some hotkeys for video calls, including a button to quickly mute the microphone.

On the product page, the screen resolution or panel type is not mentioned. Although Poly was advertised as "professional," Poly still did so specifically as a secondary or alternative advertisement.

The Personal Video Clip is a 4K webcam that automatically keeps you in the picture thanks to the built-in speaker and microphone.

There is a 1080p personal webcam with 4x digital zoom and an integrated USB Type-A port that allows you to connect the wireless headphone receiver directly to the back of the camera.

Both cameras have built-in privacy screens and also sell a Poly Studio P5 webcam paired with a personal device of your choice. Headphones or portable speakers are included so you can start using them in seconds at $ 150.

Poly has been in the video conferencing business for a long time. Since changing its name in 2019, it is Polycom first, then Poly.

The release of the latest product comes on the heels of a massive increase in the number of people working from home which is expected to last long after the immediate health risks of the pandemic.

Last year after people refreshed their home video calling settings, there was a shortage of webcams. Polly said the three new products will be available in April.
