The Most Important Features of a Conference Room Camera
How the Latest AI Technology Contributes to the Optimum Conference Room Design
Have you ever had an impromptu or planned conference meeting that went haywire? Whether an ill-equipped room or technical issues were the cause, these experiences can leave you and your team frustrated, paving the way for lost productivity. When the meeting takes place with remote clients, it can result in embarrassment and appearing less than professional.
So, what do you need to create a good impression and ensure meetings start on time and proceed without delays? In most conference rooms, you require a display, microphones and speakers, a device to run the video meeting, a touch controller to start and end sessions, and a camera.
While this equipment all carries its weight in providing optimum remote meetings, the camera is one of the most important ones on the list. Let’s explore the features you should look for and how to create a conference room design that leaves you and your team feeling invigorated and productive and your clients impressed and confident.

What to Look For in a Camera
Many of the top pain points in conference room technology have to do with poor video quality. A dynamic video conferencing solution with a high-definition PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) camera with auto-framing is our go-to solution. The once common static cameras no longer offer the solutions required for today’s digital world. A static device retains a limited field of view determined by its lens and position. Users must manually adjust the camera to try and get a better view, an awkward and cumbersome task that disrupts the flow of the meeting.
The Benefits of Auto-Tracking and Auto-Framing
One way to create an interactive experience that improves participation and makes people feel engaged and in the same room, is state-of-the-art AI auto-tracking and auto-framing. These smart video conferencing cameras automatically adjust, capturing everyone in the meeting while tracking the active speakers. Participants no longer have to adjust the height or position of the camera or worry about standing up or moving around during a presentation.
These cameras naturally capture video images by rotating and adjusting in relation to movement and sound. This creates a much better experience and quality image for the remote participants, mimicking an in-person conversation and improving the human connection.
Additional features to consider include 360° wide-angle lenses that enable remote participants to see everyone, and 4K high-definition video that provides users with a lifelike meeting experience.
