Lumens has unveiled its new professional VC-TR1 auto tracking camera, equipped with facial detection technology. Ideal for content production applications in a wide range of vertical markets, including distance learning, video conferencing and event staging, the VC-TR1 boasts three advanced tracking modes – Stage Tracking, Everywhere Tracking and Partition Tracking.
Stage Tracking Mode ensures a target on stage issue is tracked fluidly and steadily to present high quality video. Everywhere Tracking allows a speaker to leave the stage to interact with audiences without wearing any type of tracking device: there are no restrictions for space or connectivity, even if the speaker is obscured by other people. Finally, the Partition Tracking creates up to four preset zones for a presenter to walk in a specific area.
The VC-TR1 integrates a PTZ camera and 112 degree FOV panoramic camera. Thanks to the dual lens design, it can capture the whole view and track a speaker simultaneously. While in the process of tracking, the VC-TR1 automatically switches the video frame. Audiences see not only a presenter but also the content of a whiteboard or presentation material.
In addition, the VC-TR1 delivers vivid and dynamic image quality with a 1080p Full HD sensor and 20x optical zoom. It supports multiple output interfaces, including HDMI, 3G-SDI, IP (PoE) and USB.
