ClearOne announced the introduction of the Unite 160 4K camera for UCC applications. This new camera includes 12x optical zoom capabilities, remote-controlled mechanical pan and tilt as well as AI-powered smart face tracking and auto-framing. This camera is designed to capture all participants in large rooms while enabling automated focus on a moving presenter, making it ideal for larger spaces including board rooms, training centers, conference rooms and classrooms.
Previously, ClearOne’s solution for camera tracking included the Converge Pro 2 DSP mixer, one or more BMA 360 ceiling tile microphone arrays, and a camera tracking module for Crestron, AMX or  Extron. Although ClearOne says that is still the best configuration for multicamera and multi-beamformer installations, ClearOne’s new camera offers an “integrated AI-based camera tracking solution for rooms that are a fit for a single Versa Lite CT and a single camera.” The company says this new lower-cost camera tracking configuration “eliminates the need for a DSP mixer and a control system.”
The Unite 160 4K camera supports all leading virtual meeting platforms including Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Google Meet, Webex and GoToMeeting. Camera control is attained through an IR remote, RS-232 connection or UVC/UAC protocols, offering broad integration with control and automation systems.
