Poly Studio X52 All-in-One Video Bar: A Complete Review

Cameron Cashman
The work landscape has undergone a dramatic shift in recent years - advancements in technology and global events have accelerated the adoption of work-from-home policies. This has ushered in a new era of hybrid work models and digital collaboration.
In response to this, HP and Poly joined forces to meet the demand for high-quality telecommunication devices. We recognized that the built-in technology of traditional devices often fell short, leading to a sub-par communication experience.
With that in mind, we created a range of all-in-one devices that offer exceptional audio and video quality for remote communication. These peripherals enhance virtual meetings, classes, and projects, creating an environment where participants can engage with each other effectively.

Meet the Poly Studio X52 All-in-One Video Bar

The Poly Studio X52 Video Bar caters to the modern workplace's new hybrid nature, seamlessly connecting in-office and remote workers. It enables a unified communication experience where both groups can participate in conferences, presentations, and collaborative discussions with ease.
For instance, the all-in-one nature of the device simplifies the meeting setup process. With integrated cameras, microphones, and speakers, users can start meetings promptly without the hassle of assembling individual components.
Plus, its compact design is perfect for use in various meeting spaces, from small huddle rooms to larger conference rooms. It adapts to the diverse needs of different team sizes and ensures that everyone can be part of the discussion.
Most importantly, the X52 helps foster a sense of inclusivity among team members, allowing professionals from different offices or remote locations to actively participate in brainstorming sessions, decision-making, and strategy discussions.

Visual excellence

The Poly Studio X52 Video Bar is designed to project a professional image, even in remote or home office settings. This is crucial for maintaining credibility during client meetings, sales pitches, and executive presentations.
It boasts a remarkable 4K resolution (3840 x 2160) at 30 frames per second (FPS), with a bitrate of up to 2048 Kbps - ensuring crisp, crystal-clear video quality for immersive interactions. Plus, the X52 offers a variety of additional resolution options.
This allows users to adapt to various situations; options include standard HD (1280 x 720) and Full HD (1920 x 1080) at both 30 and 60 FPS. This broad range of resolutions ensures an optimal experience, catering to bandwidth constraints while maintaining excellent video quality.
And speaking of bandwidth, dynamic bandwidth allocation is a pivotal feature of the X52. This allows users to optimize data usage by automatically adjusting the amount of bandwidth allocated based on network conditions.

Camera innovation

Camera innovation
But we didn’t stop at high resolutions and framerates - because it takes more than that to produce a high-quality image. The Poly Studio X52 Video Bar boasts a 95-degree field of view.
This means you can capture more of the room, ensuring that all participants are visible without the need for awkward adjustments. Additionally, the camera offers 5x digital zoom, allowing you to zoom in on details while still maintaining clarity.
But what truly sets the X52 apart is its intelligent features. The Poly DirectorAI has automatic framing options like People Mode, Group Mode, and Speaker Mode, and the camera dynamically adjusts to properly frame groups or focus on the active speaker.
The X52 even includes expansion slots for additional cameras to enhance its versatility. You can seamlessly connect and control additional cameras, enabling multiple views of the room or different angles, which is particularly useful for larger meeting spaces.

Immersive audio

The Poly Studio X52 excels in audio performance as well. Thanks to the stereo speakers, the video bar delivers clear and immersive sound while ensuring that every participant's voice is captured.
The audio experience is further elevated by the presence of two Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) microphones. These highly sensitive microphones efficiently capture voices, making sure that every word is transmitted with precision.
Additionally, the Poly Studio X52 is equipped with two more second-order microphones, for a grand total of four microphones. This setup enables advanced noise-cancelling technologies to effectively eliminate background noise and distractions.
Finally, Poly's innovative noise-cancelling technologies like Poly NoiseBlockAI and Acoustic Fence, intelligently identify and suppress unwanted sounds, while creating a virtual “barrier” against external disturbances.

Extreme ease-of-use

The Poly Studio X52 supports a wide range of third-party applications, including Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Meet, ensuring compatibility with your preferred collaboration tools.

Plus, stay safe and secure with robust security features like media encryption, authenticated access to admin menus, and security profiles to safeguard sensitive data during video conferences. Management is centralized through the Poly Lens service, providing IT teams with enhanced visibility and control over the device fleet.
Finally, setting up the X52 is hassle-free, with multiple mounting options available. These choices allow for versatile installation in any meeting space.


The X52 supports both IPv4 and IPv6 network protocols, ensuring compatibility with different network configurations. It features a single 10/100/1G Ethernet port with Auto-MDIX functionality, simplifying network setup by automatically adjusting to different Ethernet cable types.
The device also features an auto-sensing power supply that adjusts to different voltage and frequency inputs, accommodating power systems in various regions. This feature simplifies international use and prevents power-related issues.
The device's dimensions are 30.3 x 4.5 x 4 inches, and it weighs 5.6 lbs.
Finally, Poly offers a one-year warranty covering factory parts and labour, ensuring peace of mind and dependable support for the X52 users.


In conclusion, the Poly Studio X52 All-in-One Video Bar stands as a pinnacle of innovation in the evolving landscape of remote work and digital collaboration. Crafted in response to the shifting work dynamics, this device, born from the collaboration of HP and Poly, redefines communication experiences.
It transcends traditional communication tools, ushering in a new era of dynamic, inclusive, and high-quality digital collaboration. With its fusion of technology and purposeful design, the X52 symbolizes the dawn of a more connected and empowered work environment.
