New 1 Beyond AutoFramer Camera Automatically Frames People in Room

1 Beyond announces the new 1 Beyond AutoFramer camera, a PTZ camera that detects the number and location of people in a room and automatically frames them. Designed for small or medium-sized rooms, the camera adjusts as a the group size or location changes. It widens the frame with more people and zooms in tightly with fewer. If someone gets up to write on the board, the camera will pan, tilt and zoom automatically to include the new position.

The AutoFramer camera eliminates empty space in the frame, improving the viewer’s experience. Meeting or event attendees do not have to manually adjust the camera or rely on the limitations of presets. This creates better video conferences, event recordings or virtual trainings.

Other features include:

  • Up to 1080p60
  • Browser configuration over IP
  • HD-SDI, USB 3.0 and DVI/HMDI outputs
  • Wide field of view (72.5°) and 12x optical zoom
  • Dual H.264 streams

The camera can also be set to manual mode with control over USB (UVC 1.1), IP (VISCA) or RS232/485 (VISCA/Pelco-D). 1 Beyond offers a joystick controller for manual control. The AutoFramer camera is shipping with an MSRP of $3,495. Here are all the specs.
