ClearOne Rolls Out PTZ Camera for Collaboration
ClearOne's UNITE PTZ Camera can connect via USB 3.0 or DVI.
ClearOne has introduced the UNITE PTZ Camera, a high-resolution 1080p60 video camera that can connect directly to any PC or laptop through USB 3.0 — enabling videoconferencing, unified communications or multimedia streaming without the need for adapters or converters. The camera can also connect to traditional video devices through a built-in DVI interface.
Combined with wide angle lens, the camera's 1080p60 resolution provides a sharp picture even when displayed on a large screen. Other features include:
- 12x optical zoom plus full pan, tilt and zoom;
- Fast and stable auto focus;
- Choice of standard, soft or vivid picture modes; and
- Multiple white balance modes.
With 128 presets, the UNITE PTZ camera can easily move from speaker to speaker or transition from people to other presentation tools in the room, according to a press release. Flexible installation options include mounting upside-down directly above a display (to maximize eye contact with videoconference participants), or mounting on the ceiling to capture content throughout a room.
The UNITE PTZ camera works with all of ClearOne's media collaboration solutions. For more information, visit the ClearOne site.
