Logitech Rally Bar vs Poly X50

Logitech Rally Bar vs Poly X50

Almost every organisation has at least one meeting room; however, the space might be small to medium-sized. In such cases, an all-in-one video bar is a perfect solution for small and medium-sized meeting rooms. 

The Logitech Rally Bar and the Poly X50 are both suitable for small to medium-sized meeting rooms; however, they perform in quite different ways. The Rally Bar camera has a more limited field of view, while the X50 has a longer microphone capture range. Both could be a bargain, but the X50 camera has 5x zoom and is cheaper than the Rally Bar. 

All-in-One Video Bars are a great way to easily video-enable meeting rooms. These compact, all-in-one designs are easy to set up and use, compatible with all major video platforms, and quite affordable.

Its large, ultra-low distortion speakers with RightSound deliver every word with clarity. You can add up to three Rally mic pods for even greater coverage if you have larger settings.
