Latest Telepresence and Visual Collaboration News:
Array Telepresence Update - Lifesize Immersive Telepresence Using Your Existing Videoconferencing System
I call this the "letter o' news" because everyone gets too many "newsletters" but how else can I tell you about the exciting times at Array Telepresence!?- The revolutionary startup that enables immersive telepresence in regular conference rooms for $13,990 using your existing videoconferencing system.
Things have been progressing steadily at Array, yet one problem that continues to persist is that Equal-i Technology is an "Experience" and, until very recently you had to visit our corporate headquarters or catch us at a trade show to get "Experienced".
Well, We're changing all that! We have partnered with our distributor and reseller partners to open 11 showrooms in global cities ranging from Chicago, IL to Melbourne, Australia to Hong Kong to Johannesburg, South Africa where you can see Array running on the "Big Screens". We're also launching a program in September to more than double that number to 30+!
We also have a small number of available systems for what we are calling "The FedEx Demo" with 5 slots left in September for organizations interested in "kicking the tires" with an on-site Equal-i demonstration. Additionally, some of the world's leading pro-AV shops and systems integrators now have the ability to demonstrate Array if you are a client.
Voice Activated Camera Technology Vs Array - Array's Equal-i technology gets compared to Cisco and Polycom's Voice Activated Camera Technology: (SpeakerTrack 60 and EagleEye Director) because we all solve the problem of "Postage Stamp-sized Heads".
Here is an article breaking down how Array solves that particular problem better than Cisco and Polycom and how Equal-i technology further improves the scene / meeting dynamics in numerous ways.
Additionally, for those interested in better understanding how Array would integrate into their existing or planned videoconference rooms, we are rolling out a new program where we will provide a complimentary room design. Simply complete our one-page site survey and we will send back detailed drawings showing how Array will integrate into your existing space. This free service is available to distributors, resellers, integrators, and enterprise tire-kickers alike.
Finally, we have a new webinar series and this week we are hosting two programs
@ 12:00 PM EST / 9:00 AM PST / 5:00 PM London.
Webinar - Array Telepresence - An Overview for Systems Integrators and Visual Collaboration Architects - Tuesday, August 18th, @ 12:00 PM EST / 9:00 AM PST / 5:00 PM London
Webinar -Array Telepresence - An Overview for Enterprise Video Program Managers & Chief Collaboration and Productivity Officers Wednesday, August 19th, @ 12:00 PM EST / 9:00 AM PST / 5:00 PM London

Array's DX Dual Camera Vs. Cisco and Polycom's Voice Tracking Camera Technology
At a cursory glance one might think that the Array DX Dual Camera and Image Processor are competitive offerings with Cisco's SpeakerTrack 60 and Polycom's Eagle Eye Director which attempt to solve the problem of the farthest participants from the camera having tiny, indecipherable features and poor human factors by using voice-tracking to zoom in and frame the active speakers.Array's approach solves the "postage stamp-sized head" problem in a more elegant and desirable manner and then further improves the scene and the experience in a variety of ways that will delight your end-users and everyone you conference with.
