Crestron Adds New Features to Improve Framing for Automate VX Voice-Activated Speaker-Tracking Solution
Crestron announced new features to improve the framing for the Automate VX voice-activated speaker-tracking solution. The company says one of the big challenges for organizations is delivering an equitable experience for the in-office participants engaging with remote users. Recently certified as a Microsoft Teams Room Device for large and extra-large rooms, Automate VX solves equitable meeting problems by placing multiple optical zoom cameras around the room and employing voice-activated switching that seamlessly moves between speakers for a production-quality meeting experience.
Crestron says rooms equipped with Automate VX have “historically leveraged tracking to presets and audio pickup to determine which camera picks up which speaker based on their location.” This latest update adds facial and torso detection intelligence, allowing the cameras to track body movements and reframe participants based on their position within the frame. If a chair slides to the left or a participant resituates in their seat, Automate VX can pick up on those motions and reframe the participant so they are always centered in the shot.
These Automate VX enhancements will create a better experience for the participants and improve room maintenance for the administrators. For integrators, these updates simplify the installation process by removing some of the preciseness required for setup and replacing that with intelligence that allows for a more adaptable system.
