Nov. 22, 2021 - Audio specialist Sennheiser and 1 Beyond, industry leader in camera tracking solutions, announce the release of a new camera tracking solution that offers voice-activated camera tracking for rooms of any size: classrooms, boardrooms, multi-purpose meeting spaces and more.
Customers are enjoying the integration of the 1 Beyond Automate VX and Sennheiser’s TeamConnect Ceiling 2 (TCC2). Integrators have deployed the pair at financial institutions, universities and hospitals since the summer of 2021.
This solution leverages the audio quality and accurate beam position information provided by the TeamConnect Ceiling 2 microphone array combined with 1 Beyond’s advanced camera positioning algorithm to offer close-up shots of people speaking in a room, whether they are seated or standing anywhere in a room.
"1 Beyond offers advanced camera tracking that pairs perfectly with the TCC2 microphone array," explains Charlie Jones, Global Alliance and Partnership Manager for Sennheiser. "Unlike other products in the market, the TCC2 does not limit the number of zones you can use for camera tracking. This allows the real-time positional information from the microphone to automatically switch the cameras to the optimal view, regardless of where the speaker is located in the room, ensuring a lifelike meeting and classroom experience for remote participants. 1 Beyond has even automated the system setup resulting in a system that is extremely powerful while still easy to deploy."
"1 Beyond’s Automate VX solution has been on the market for over four years and is a mature product with many advanced features," says Terry Cullen, CEO/Founder, 1 Beyond. "We’re excited about this partnership. The combination of Sennheiser and 1 Beyond technologies really advances the state of the art for voice-tracking camera solutions".
