Best Videoconferencing Accessory (tie): Vaddio HuddleStation and GroupStation; Sound Control Technologies RemoteCam3
Vaddio HuddleStation and GroupStation: Vaddio’s HuddleSTATION is for small meeting spaces and Vaddio’s GroupSTATION is for mid-to large-size meeting spaces designed for 10-20 people – and both of them allow you to collaborate with remote participants, share a local PowerPoint presentation or stream a training video from YouTube. Whether you want to have a Skype video call, share your screen using WebEx or just have a SIP-based Voice over IP (VoIP) audio conference call, you can easily connect with the laptop or tablet of your choice. Here are the specs and here’s the video we shot of them at InfoComm.
Sound Control Technologies RemoteCam3: The RemoteCam3 Camera extension kits offer the ability to send camera power, digital video, camera control and VISCA control loop (if required), as well as both wired and modulated IR from the camera (with supported IR output) all through two standard Cat6 cables up to 120-feet. This is a big-time integrator system simplifier when it comes to integrating either Polycom or Cisco VTC systems, if you want to locate the controller away from the cameras. All the details from Sound Control Technologies are here and here’s the video we shot of it at InfoComm.
