Kandao Technology Will Bring Kandao Meeting Ultra, Kandao Meeting Ultra Standard to InfoComm 2023
Kandao Technology will bring Kandao Meeting Ultra and Kandao Meeting Ultra Standard to the upcoming Infocomm 2023. The Kandao Meeting Ultra is a K all-in-one AI 360 conference camera with two fisheye cameras that captures and stitches 4K 360 views on top, and two 15.6-inch IPS touch screen displays that double as a control panel, a 10-watt Hi-Fi speaker, and eight omnidirectional microphones. Exterior connections include a single HDMI IN, two HDMI OUT, an Ethernet port, USB-C and multiple USB A ports.
Kandao Meeting Ultra and Ultra Standard both have 360-degree views so that the entire meeting room can be captured and all local attendees are equally shown when joining hybrid meetings. Speaking participants do not need to squeeze together around single webcams. They can move around the room while being auto-framed and focused by both audio and video AI algorithms.
Both the Kandao Meeting Ultra and Ultra Standard output stream 4K 30FPS HDR video.
There are three discussion modes for multi-attendee framing, main-speaker focusing and all-attendee displaying. The device can automatically reframe views to capture up to eight detected local attendees. Similar to previous Kandao Meeting conference device models, the Meeting Ultra and Ultra Standard have a panorama on top to show all attendees and are now upgraded to provide the option of removing this panorama.
One special feature on top of the AI speaker tracking algorithm is the ability to control viewing angles and zoom functionality manually. Users can simply lock the views in place (gallery view or speaker view with up to eight participants shown simultaneously), then tap on individual frames to adjust the view and zoom in on speakers to provide even greater accuracy in tracking active speakers. The 360 panoramic viewing angle can also be adjusted and ignore zones can be set up to prevent the algorithm from auto-framing.
Both Kandao Meeting Ultra and Ultra standard are 360 conferencing systems that operate as standalone devices supporting any video conferencing platform. However, they can still be used as computer USB peripherals for Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environments. You can use an HDMI cable to easily share your screen during meetings or share through wireless screen mirroring from iOS devices, Mac OS devices, Android devices, or Windows-system devices. Having two HDMI OUT ports enables connection to two external screens creating more possibilities for sharing in larger spaces. Users can connect a USB-C cable to a power supply or even use an Ethernet cable for Power over Ethernet capabilities, cutting down on the wiring in the room.
