  • MX700

    • SpeakerTrack 60- is a dual camera system with active zoom technology.  It finds the active speaker in a large room, zooms in, and follows the speaker as they move about.  Zooms out when the viewing party speaks so they can witness the good (or bad) reactions of their audience.
    • Intelligent Proximity- senses if users bring smartphones and/or tablets into a meeting and asks if the user would like to pair theses devices so they can view and navigate shared materials independent of the presenter.  This is a completely new way to extend video collaboration to mobile devices.
    • Facial Recognition- frames groups of people, minimizing background distractions.
    • Deploy from mobile devices and desktop computers.
