Nureva Inc., an innovator in advanced audio conferencing solutions, announced Lumens uses sound location data provided by Nureva’s HDL300 and Dual HDL300 audio conferencing systems to enable camera-tracking via its PTZ cameras.
Until recently, sophisticated camera tracking using sound location data had been possible only with traditional pro AV solutions. Using Nureva’s sound location device API, available through the Nureva Developer Toolkit and Lumens CamConnect software, the integration allows sound location data from Nureva audio systems to steer the camera focus to where people are speaking in the room.
Unlike integrated audio and video products, the camera location can be independent of the Nureva audio system so each component can be placed in its optimal location without compromise.
Camera tracking is an essential part of effective hybrid space, and Lumens is one of many upcoming integrations that uses Nureva’s Microphone Mist technology to deliver a better collaboration experience. Thousands of virtual microphones are used to locate sound sources everywhere in a room, and advanced processing algorithms filter out undesirable sounds that make it difficult for remote participants to follow the presenter.
Nureva’s API is used to stream data regarding the sound location and sound level, tailored to the Nureva audio system being used. Sound locations are reported several times per second to enable automatic camera adjustments based on the location of the talker or multiple talkers. This results in more refined camera positioning and a better experience for remote participants.
The HDL300 and Dual HDL300 integration with Lumens is available today. Integration with the HDL410 system will be available during the second quarter.
Visitors to ISE, Jan. 31 to Feb. 3, in Barcelona, can learn more about Nureva’s camera integrations at stand 2N450.
