AVer Information today launched the TR310 AI Auto Tracking Distance Learning Camera. Designed specifically for the evolving K-12 distance learning classroom, the TR310 integrates Artificial Intelligence to automatically detect the teacher’s movement within the classroom (allowing them to focus on delivering their curriculum instead of worrying about staying within the camera’s view).
The Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms of the TR310 drive two auto tracking modes including Presenter Tracking or Zone Tracking with no need for a camera operator. Presenter Tracking allows the camera to automatically follow the presenter with either full body or half body, or manually track any other specific presenter with a simple click. Since the AI technology focuses on the body rather than simply the face, the camera recognizes and follows the presenter even if he or she is wearing a PPE mask. Zone Tracking allows automatic tracking between multiple preset zones to support different learning stations in the classroom. Completely hands-free, the TR310 provides the flexibility for the teacher or presenter to move freely about the room and let the camera do the work. The 10X optical zoom provides a clear and concise image of the teacher regardless of how far they are from the camera, allowing remote students to remain engaged with the instructor. The optical zoom is important as it provides better quality video from a further distance than cameras featuring only digital zoom that can greatly reduce the image’s resolution.
The included free software allows for video recording, image capture and livestreaming, while administrative features allow for the easy maintenance, control and management of hundreds of cameras from a single location. Compatible with all major video conferencing platforms used for distance learning such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Google Hangouts, the TR310 will integrate with whichever solution the school is using. Connecting a document camera allows the teacher to display physical objects and material simultaneously during a lesson.
