ClearOne announced the introduction of UNITE® 160 4K camera. This new camera offers organizations cutting-edge 4K UHD performance with 12x optical zoom capabilities, remote-controlled mechanical pan and tilt as well as AI-powered smart face tracking and auto framing. This camera is designed to capture all participants in large rooms while enabling automated focus on a moving presenter, making it ideal for larger spaces including board rooms, training centers, conference rooms and classrooms. Previously, ClearOne's solution for camera tracking included the CONVERGE® Pro 2 DSP mixer, one or more BMA 360 ceiling tile microphone arrays, and a camera tracking module for Crestron, AMX, or Extron.
Although that is still the best configuration for multi-camera and multi-beamformer installations, ClearOne's new camera offers an integrated AI-based camera tracking solution for rooms that are a fit for a single Versa Lite CT and a single camera. This new lower cost camera tracking configuration eliminates the need for a DSP mixer and a control system. The UNITE 160 4K camera supports all leading virtual meeting platforms including Microsoft® Teams, Zoom, Google® Meet, WebEx and GoToMeeting.
Challenging lighting conditions are no match for the camera's advanced 2D and 3D noise reduction, which ensures excellent visuals free of artifacts or grain. Camera control is attained through an IR remote, RS-232 connection, or UVC/UAC protocols, offering broad integration with control and automation systems.
