Today, more people than ever are using video as a way to communicate across the globe.  Traditionally, conference rooms have been equipped with one camera at the front of the room.  While this allows people to still communicate and enjoy many of the benefits that video technology brings, there are some limitations for users.

Using the camera in the front of the room requires a person to operate the remote control in order to be seen up close.  IT teams often set camera presets to help users, but this is often overwhelming, frustrating and time consuming to most average users.  Because of this, most people will leave the camera view as-is when they enter the room.  Depending on the size of the room, this can leave a long bowling alley view for the other participants on the call.  It makes it hard for them to see who is in the room and they cannot pick up on critical body language and nonverbal cues of the presenter.  Many times, there is a need for a presenter to walk around to a white board but unless someone is familiar with operating the remote control, there will be a limited view for the participants on video.  But with the new EagleEye Director II, these problems are eliminated.

EagleEye Director II allows you to bring an intimate and inclusive experience to your video conference room. Unlike other solutions, EagleEye Director II allows you to keep context in the room with single stream video of both the full room and an up-close view of the active speaker.  When used with RealPresence Platform, it provides valuable data back to IT that can be used for real estate planning and resource optimization. It also provides an automatic people-tracking camera experience for all meeting participants.

The greatest benefit of video conferencing is the ability to see colleagues from around the globe.  Now, with EEDII everyone can feel as if they are in the same room together when they see vital nonverbal cues up close.  People are more engaged and feel connected with colleagues and clients!
