A Sneak Peak at the upcoming Equal-i 1S Huddle Room designed for small team tables and huddle rooms. The 1S camera has a single 80 degree lens concealed at eye-line between two displays.

One of my favorite lines in the cover story in Telepresence Options Magazine on Array is the line Herold had in the interview where he refers to "the existing paradigm of putting a PTZ camera or webcam on top of a display where the participants are only 4-5 feet away" as a "wholly unworkable methodology". Don't sugar coat it Herold, what do you really think!

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).
