Top Auto Tracking Cameras for Lecture Capture

Posted by Paul Richards on Mar 29, 2017 3:45:07 PM

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.

So let’s look at one of the live streaming industries most innovative video production companies who has slipped in a peer-to-peer video conferencing add-on to their latest release. vMix just announced new feature called “vMix Call” and I think this is a GAME CHANGER for the live streaming market! vMix Call allows users to instantly launch a video conference call inside their professional 4K capable video production software suite.

Why we don't use Webinars... Zoom adds Facebook Live Integration and more...

Posted by Paul Richards on Feb 3, 2017 8:57:33 AM

We have moved over to the dark side of video communications… Live Streaming. In some ways, I miss the lightside. GoToWebinar, Cisco Event Center and Zoom Webinar were comfortable. They weren’t too expensive and I enjoyed the easy to manage platforms that just felt good.

Facebook Introduces Hot New Live Streaming App [Video]

Posted by Tess Protesto on Jan 5, 2017 11:30:00 AM

 

Facebook started off the new year by introducing a new application that's going to change the game for live streaming. Hosting more than 1.8 Billion users, Facebook is constantly producing clever ways to increase ease of user interface. Facebook has certainly jumped on board with the rise of live streaming. The new Facebook Live Streaming App has made the process handy for people at any level of experience. Users are now able to connect directly to a streaming device like the PTZOptics HD Live Streaming Cameras. This is opposed to the prior need to go through the RTSP streaming process. This new feature now makes live streaming easier than ever. Here's what you need to know:

1. App is now accessible from your desktop computer

2. Users have ability to create mini streaming studios with USB based video products 

3. The simplicity of the app is going to attract A LOT more Facebook Live users, and therefore viewers

Now that we have informed you about this new and exciting app, here's the catch. Facebook is still distributing the app to all accounts, so not everyone has it yet. We were lucky enough to have one account that has been updated. Attached to this blog is a short video tutorial introducing the app and showing off some of its features. Some of the key features include ability to switch microphones and cameras, live chat with your viewers, and a simple icon listed alongside the status and photo update links. Here's some visuals for you:
