Conferences are now being held indoors such as TedTalks and usually, there is only one speaker who speaks before the audience. However, conferences are also known to have low light conditions which can affect the clarity and quality of images and video, if you’re live streaming.
One way that others can think of when resolving this is to use an external flash. Yet, this can distract speakers and may affect their delivery. So, how can you solve this problem and find the best framing without distracting and annoying the speaker?
In this article, you will know how AI-infused video conference cameras can frame the best view and angle of speakers during your conferences, Coolpo AI features, and the best setup for Coolpo video conference cameras for your next gathering.
If you want to take the best shot and have the best frame of the speaker during your hybrid work conferences, you first need to invest in the best video conference cameras.
The best AI-powered video conference cameras should capture your speaker with high-quality images, videos, and audio through their AI features.
They are AI-powered, easy to set up and secure to use. Also, they are compatible with almost all of the mainstream unified collaboration and communication platforms such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Skype, etc.
These AI features of Pana, Mini, and Mini Lite will surely make your conferences more seamless, innovative, and immersive.
At Coolpo, we use it to define our AI Algorithms in our AI Huddle Pana when it actively looks for active meeting participants using voices and movements. It uses these two cues to locate or determine the “position” of human beings engaged in the hybrid meeting and using the video conference camera.
It uses algorithms developed in-house by our company engineers altogether called MeetingFlex® Technology”. The fisheye camera captures a 360 view of the room, stitched perfectly together to form a panorama display. It identifies everyone who is speaking and intuitively selects them in individual frames above the panorama.
Furthermore, the same camera actively identifies individuals in the room: movements, mannerisms, facial expressions, and other small details one sees clearly during face-to-face meetings but not with traditional front-facing video conference cameras.
These features allow you to control your video conference remotely hassle-free because of its AI features. The AI automatically zooms in and focuses on the active meeting participants when they start talking and moving.
AI Huddle Pana and AI Huddle Mini have these features where in the case of Mini, because of its Gesture Control feature, when a meeting participant raises his/her hand close to his/her face with an open palm, the AI will focus and will follow him/her within the conference room.
The AI Huddle Mini has smart technology that recognizes people as they move in and out of the camera's view. This allows the Mini to adjust its framing to capture everyone in the best possible way.
Additionally, the Mini can focus on the speaker, using a dedicated hand gesture, even if they are moving around the stage so that they remain in clear focus throughout the recording.
Here are the different setups that you can refer to if you’re using Coolpo video conference cameras for your subsequent conferences:
Cluster is a classroom-like set-up. Meeting participants are arranged the same way how chairs in the classroom are organized. For this scenario, the Pana is recommended to be placed in a space in the room closer to your TV or projector.
A horseshoe/U-shape setup is a typical setup during company meetings or seminars. The Pana is placed in the center of the table surrounded by meeting participants on three sides. Typically, one side is open for presenters, a TV monitor, or simply the door where people come in and out. This allows for a wider space to present during seminars and conferences.
The Grid set-up is a theater-like or cinema-like set-up. Participants have their seats facing the screen or the TV. In this scenario, the Pana is recommended to be placed in the area of the conference room just like in the Cluster set-up. Since meeting participants will be sitting closely next to one another, Pana’s 360 conference camera can showcase the group in its panoramic display while other areas can be focused within the individual panels for a more detailed view.
The round table setup scenario is similar to the Horseshoe/U-shape – a typical company meeting set-up. Also, the Pana should be placed in the middle of the conference table. If your meetings are held usually for brainstorming, catching up, huddle videos, or simply a hybrid water cooler chat session, then this setup is for you. Remote participants will feel as if they’re part of the conversation since the device camera is at eye level.
In conclusion, video conferences have become a common way of conducting meetings, seminars, and other events. However, low light conditions can affect the quality of the video, and using an external flash can be distracting.
Video conference cameras like the Coolpo AI Huddle Pana, Coolpo AI Huddle Mini, and Mini Lite can capture high-quality images, videos, and audio through their AI features. These features include dual positioning technology, self-controlled pan, tilt, zoom, frame master, and real-time auto-tracking.
These cameras are recommended for different set-ups, including cluster, horseshoe/U-shape, grid, and round table. With these cameras, conferences can be more seamless, innovative, and immersive.
