1 Beyond has announced the 1 Beyond AutoTracker 3 camera with NDI to allow for automatic presenter tracking in AV-over-IP workflows. NewTek’s NDI technology is an IP technology that allows the camera to provide video streams that can be viewed by NDI compatible software or hardware devices anywhere on the same network.
Only a single standard network cable needs be connected to the AutoTracker 3 camera with NDI to provide power, control and the NDI video stream, making it cost- and time-effective to scale presenter tracking across multiple rooms.
The camera produces high and low resolution NDI video streams (H.264 and 1G) and the bitrate of the stream is adjustable in the camera. Once the camera is configured over the network, it can be controlled from any third party control device that supports VISCA over IP to turn tracking on or off.
The AutoTracker 3 has the same features of previous AutoTracker versions including dual 1080p or 720p HD-SDI outputs, PoE+ power, 20x optical zoom and automatic camera functions such as focus and white balance.
AutoTracker 3 cameras with NDI is $7,595 and the detailed specs are here.
