At InfoComm 2019, Yamaha Unified Communications announced a partnership with UCC camera company Huddly. With the partnership, the new Yamaha ESB-1080 Enterprise Sound Bar will bundle with Huddly’s AI wide-angle USB camera to create the Yamaha Collaboration Kit.
The Yamaha Collaboration Kit (currently available only in North America) combines Yamaha’s ESB-1080 Enterprise Sound Bar and Huddly IQ AI-powered conference camera. Yamaha’s ESB-1080 includes a sound bar with two built-in subwoofers and bass-reflex port, two dome tweeters and two woofers. Its conference mode preset is specialized for installation in conference room spaces with enterprise-demanded functions for easy administration. The Yamaha ESB-1080 is available as a sound solution for any enterprise room to provide or expand speaker output or as part of a bundled solution with the Huddly IQ AI-powered conference camera.
The Yamaha Collaboration Kit’s camera provides 150-degree wide-angle 1080p video, an embedded mic array, automated AI features and the Huddly InSights analytics API. With the Genius Framing feature, the camera can automatically detect and frame participants in its field of view, eliminating the need to manually control the camera.
