Xilica and AVer Information announced a technology partnership to support the growing demand for voice-based Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) camera tracking functionality in medium and large collaboration spaces, such as conference rooms, multi-purpose rooms, auditoriums and classrooms.

The manufacturers have integrated control and monitoring of AVer’s VISCA-based PTZ camera range into Xilica’s room audio systems, offering a drag-and-drop, codeless experience for system integrators wishing to utilize AVer’s ProAV cameras for voice-based camera tracking. The companies say this functionality will soon be available within Xilica room systems for common beamforming microphone arrays, including the Sennheiser TeamConnect Ceiling 2 and TeamConnect Ceiling Medium, Shure Microflex Advance MXA920 and the Yamaha Adecia RM-CG.

According to the companies, voice-based camera tracking is a popular solution for effortless, engaging meetings, presentations and lectures where in-room and remote participants are afforded the same clear view of activities without requiring a dedicated camera operator. Voice-based camera tracking offers flexibility of room use and presenter style, while covering multiple speaker positions.
