Crestron has announced that the Automate VX voice-activated speaker-tracking solution has been certified as a Microsoft Teams Room Device for large and extra-large rooms.
Automate VX technology enables high-quality meeting experiences with production-style cuts that is “unparalleled in the market and will elevate” Microsoft Teams meetings. With Automate VX, multiple cameras around the room work together to track active speakers while removing distractions that are typically visible when a camera pans, tilts, or zooms. While an active speaker is being captured on the first camera, the second camera moves into position to capture the next speaker before the system switches the camera feed, reducing any disruptive camera movements and enabling participants to focus on their meeting.
“After a few years under our belts of hybrid meeting and learning, our expectations for these experiences have grown, meaning our customers expect more from the technology that supports them,” said Brad Hintze, EVP of global marketing, Crestron. “With permanent hybrid and remote workers, meeting room technologies that provide a reliable experience captured by multiple cameras have become critical for collaboration spaces to drive a more personable experience. Automate VX is the only product on the market that can deliver this level of video quality, production switching, and customisation ease.”
