Vaddio Debuts AutoTrak 2.0 Camera Tracking System

web-AutoTrak-2The new Vaddio AutoTrak 2.0 with SmoothTrak and AutoTilt technology is an HD classroom camera tracking system where the instructor wears an IR lanyard belt pack that emits infrared light received by an IR PTZ camera. Video is then sent from the IR PTZ camera to the Tracking Camera. In addition to moving from side-to-side (SmoothTrak), the new AutoTilt motion follows the instructor as they move closer or farther away from the camera, allowing her to be centrally framed no matter where she is standing. The new AutoTrakPOD allows the presenter to quickly switch between three tracking camera presets. An additional “Rescan” button on the AutoTrakPOD instantly activates IR lanyard reacquisition.

An upgrade kit is available for existing AutoTrak installs. The kit includes two software upgrades, one for the AutoTrak CPU and one for the HD-18 cameras. Hardware upgrades include the new EasyTALK professional-grade Wireless Audio Interface, an AutoTrak 2.0 belt pack with rechargeable lithium-ion battery and a new lanyard with an integrated unidirectional microphone. Also included is telephone technical support with an AutoTrak 2.0-qualified Vaddio Tech Support staff member. List price for an upgrade kit is $2,500.
