Xilica Integrates with Lumens
Xilica, a provider of collaboration products, has partnered with Lumens Digital Optics to deliver greater AV automation in hybrid collaboration spaces. The partnership integrates Lumens' Pan-Tilt-Zoom camera functionality into Xilica's Cat5-based audio room systems with automated voice-based camera tracking.
Xilica's automated camera-tracking technology uses data feeds from a range of beamforming ceiling microphone arrays to accurately steer IP-controllable PTZ cameras to specific positions around a collaboration space.
"Configuration of Xilica's automated camera tracking technology has always been intuitive, but this new integration with Lumens significantly simplifies the configuration process for our customers," said Steven Liang, vice president of product development at Lumens, in a statement. "Lumens' functionality and control is natively integrated into Xilica software for an easy, turnkey experience for customers, leveraging pre-designed templates and pre-built user interface options for an immediate deployment. With just a few clicks, Lumens and Xilica customers can obtain a sophisticated, easy-to-deploy automated solution for voice-based camera tracking without code and a high learning-curve."
"We are bringing sound and video together over the network in a way that drives interaction and connection between presenter and audience, no matter the scale of the system or room configuration," said Shaun Robinson, vice president of product at Xilica, in a statement. "This solution ultimately eliminates the need for users to directly control cameras during a conference or classroom session in any collaborative environment, while giving them the freedom to fully-utilise their space and communicate in a way that is natural for them."
