As a rule, medium to large meeting room are equipped with discussion systems and gooseneck microphones to capture sound from every speaker seat. Conference table is usually located along camera sight, which is not the best setting for large scale rooms, as the person on the other end cannot quite see the speakers among a number of other participants. To solve this problem, additional PTZ cameras are mounted on the walls facing each row of the participants.

Operation principle is quite simple. Each delegate unit is assigned to a nearest camera preset, which allows to frame speaker perfectly. TrueConf Weathervane reads the number of active mic of the discussion system and directs the camera to the speaker assigned to it. At the same time it switches TrueConf room endpoint to capture video from active camera. When several discussion system microphones are active, users can frame general view.

Our new solution supports three types of connection: discussion system control unit, cameras over UVC и VISCA, and HTTP protocol with TrueConf Terminal API (used to switch active cameras).

TrueConf Weathervane compatible with Sennheiser, BKR discussion systems.
