Platforms such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom enable cost-effective video conferencing for hybrid meetings. This allows workers in the office to collaborate with their colleagues working from home.
The most important objective is to ensure that everyone, especially out-of-office participants, are fully engaged and readily able to interact with one another. This is commonly referred to as “meeting equity.”
However, the challenge arises when relying on the built-in camera and mic of a a local participant’s laptop. This often results in a less-than-desirable video and audio experience for remote participants, making them feel disengaged with people in the room.
To help alleviate this issue, Atlona offers the Captivate™ Series AT-CAP-FC110 ePTZ camera and AT-CAP-SP100 speakerphone, so remote workers can readily see and hear their counterparts onsite.
The CAP-FC110 can automatically frame the image so people are always front and center in the field of view. The speakerphone features a mic array to capture presenters in the room, and delivers high-quality audio from remote participants.
The Omega™ AT-OME-MH21 provides automatic AV + USB switching for two presenters, with a USB hub for sharing the camera and speakerphone between them.
