Poly X30/X50/X70 Integration


Android provides a platform that allows for integration of different video conference platforms into a videobar and using a touch screen to control the video meeting. Current hardware options for this platform provides an HDMI input to support content ingest and a USB-A connection to utilize the built-in BYOD-mode / a.k.a. Device Mode. 

To enter Device Mode the normal behaviour is to connect both the HDMI and USB-A cable into a laptop. When cables are disconnected from the laptop, the system goes back to MTR-mode. 

With Ochno Power Conference you instead can provide up to 4 USB-C connections for laptops. Just one cable instead of two and always with charging.


  • MTR-Mode: The connected USB-C cable provides charging and shares the laptops picture onto the screen. If there is an ongoing MTR-meeting, the video can be shared in the meeting as well. 
  • BYOD-Mode: The connected USB-C cable provides charging, shares the laptops picture onto the screen and connects the USB-based video conference equipment directly to the laptop so that the user can run a local video conference call with any VC-platform.

2 or 3 USB-C pull-out cables with separate functions assigned to each.

The user doesn’t need to press any button, the system auto-switches betweem mode when the cable is inserted into the laptop. 

A suitable label is attached to the cable which informs the user what mode the cable is associated with. 

Regardless of mode, the laptop will always charge up to 100W.

Up to 3 USB-C pull-out cables that support both MTR content ingest and BYOD. Separate button for the user to select the mode.

This setup is useful when the cables are distributed throughout the table since it allows any cable to enter both mode.

The buttons used is the O-PC-LS-1 product which contains 4 LED-buttons that are inserted through an 8mm hole. 

By clicking the button, the user can cycle through the different modes:

  • Charging only (usually default mode)
  • MTR-mode (charging + show picture)
  • BYOD-mode (charging + show picture + access VC-devices)

See below for details on how to configure default mode and possible auto-switching as well.

This solution provides maybe the most user-friendly  and stylish experience.

The Ochno LED Socket (O-SWD-100-1, O-SWD-100-S-1) are used combined with the control adapter (O-SBC-200-1).
