What's Up with Array Telepresence? 1st Newsletter since Emerging from Stealth!
New Product - The Equal-i 1S Huddle Room - The Equal-i 1S Huddle Room is a specially designed 80 degree single camera designed to work with the Equal-i Image Improvement Processor and any videoconferencing codec that will accept an HDMI camera input. The camera is designed to be concealed at eye-level in standard "huddle room" or "team room" configurations.
The single 80 degree camera captures 1-4 participants around a small table/huddle table. The IIP improves the scene, eye-line, and meeting format before handing the image off to the codec for the trip across the wire. With dual 55? displays the system can be operated using a single screen for the video call and one for data OR both displays for the video call and data on laptops and personal devices.
The Equal-i 1S Huddle Room's 80 degree camera and Image Improvement Processor will be available in September for $11,995 Reseller Partners & Enterprise Customers in the Array Early Access Program can evaluate & demonstrate the Equal-i 1S Huddle Room camera for an additional $2,000 per camera using the Image Improvement Processor(s) in your Equal-i 2S evaluation system(s).
Wainhouse Calls Array Telepresence a "Showstopper" @ InfoComm
The Array Equal-i 2S powering dual Samsung 65 inch curved HD displays sitting on the Array Front System.
We were also displaying the Array 8 Seat Collaboration Table with 20 inch data monitors between each two seats.
We recently debuted the Array's Equal-i technology at InfoComm in Las Vegas on June 18th-20th. How was it received? The response was amazing! Our booth was hammered from 9:10 AM on Wednesday and busy until the show closed. We scanned 483 visitors but even our "scanning ninja" was having trouble keeping up with the crowds when we were 3-6 people deep during periods with visitors crushing in for cell phone pictures and video. We scanned 233 on Wednesday, 159 on Thursday, and a respectable 91 on Friday.
We estimate that 85% were systems integrators, Pro-AV, visual collaboration architects, and consultants. About 15% were Fortune 5000 enterprise customers interested in potentially upgrading hundreds of rooms to Equal-i, 2% videoconferencing vendor or potential OEM partners, and 2% Government & Military, and 1% University. Not bad for a 1st year exhibitor! ... Continue Reading

Reference Designs of the Month
The 1st reference design of the month is the Array Collaboration Table - While the Equal-i 2S Dual Camera will work with any elongated table, Array offers this table to enhance your Equal-i deployment or as reference design for visual collaboration architects to integrate Array with a similar sized table. The slightly wider than typical center helps position participants ideally while 20 inch data displays between each participant ensure that even the tiniest details and spreadsheet fonts are visible. Visual collaboration architects can supercharge with interactive whiteboards, ceiling mounted visualizers, collaboration PC, and/or "Bring & Fling".
Array offers this Collaboration Table to optimize Equal-i and move data to between each two participants so even the smallest details are visible. Customers can choose from 1/2 a dozen color and finish options and data and power ports can be customized to your requirments. An 8 seat Collaboration Table is $9995 including six 20 inch HD data displays. 12 Seats is $13,995. Larger sizes please call for quote.
