While at the International Society for Technology in Education Conference in Philadelphia, we spoke to HuddleCamHD to talk about their SimplTrack2 camera. This camera features auto tracking of its subject, making it a perfect solution for distance learning. Educators can feel comfortable using the simple plug-and-play device with a USB 3 connection. The HuddleCamHD SimplTrack2 also has accompanying software, allowing an educator to control the camera's functionality prior to any lecture.
Hello IT and AV Engineers!
I recently got a chance to test out some of the industries top auto tracking camera solutions. Last year at INFOCOMM we saw quite a few new auto-tracking cameras solutions from 1Beyond, HuddleCamHD, Vaddio and PTZOptics. We will get into each of these companies auto-tracking solutions in this blog and I have side by side footage for the HuddleCamHD SimplTrack and PTZOptics Perfect Track.
Auto Tracking Cameras for Lecture Capture
The good news is that that auto-tracking cameras are finally here with some impressive performance. The HuddleCamHD Simpltrack pictured above has some amazing features for controlling the speed and sensistivity we test out in the video below. We also, did a very similar test with the PTZOptics Perfect. I have to say the HuddleCamHD Simpltrack has a much more feature rich interface for auto-tracking. The "Tracking Parameters" turned out to much more in-depth. While, I do love the simplicity of the Perfect Track system from PTZOptics (and the cameras) take a look at the PTZOptics Perfect Track interface below.
