Dual-screen support

StarLeaf Room for Poly supports dual-screen functionality, and is available to all customers with a room subscription.

The Poly Studio X30 has only one HDMI port and therefore can not be used for a dual-screen system. Dual-screen functionality is available for the Poly Studio X50, and Poly G7500.

To use dual-screen mode, connect your Poly video bar to both of the room system’s screens. StarLeaf checks for the presence of two screens when starting up, and switches to dual-screen mode if a second screen is detected.

When dual-screen mode is active, StarLeaf will show video on one screen, and shared content on the other.

Known limitations

StarLeaf Room for Poly version 1.29 requires a minimum PolyOS version of 3.2.2. If you upgrade to StarLeaf Room for Poly 1.30 with a PolyOS version which is too old, the room system may become stuck in a reboot loop until you perform the PolyOS upgrade.

Most systems are set to auto-update the PolyOS version, but others may need to manually upgrade through the Poly webUI.
