The front-facing cameras used in meeting rooms prior to the pandemic were ill-equipped to handle the demands of hybrid work.

Their limited functionality, typically offering only a single fixed camera angle, hindered the sense of connection for individuals working in different places.

This issue has become increasingly troublesome as more companies transition back to the office.

With people having grown accustomed to a gallery view during calls with multiple participants, the previous setup of capturing the entire meeting room within a single camera shot is no longer desirable.

To address this issue, audiovisual equipment manufacturers are now introducing next-generation cameras powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning. The outcome? An enhanced meeting experience that is automatically optimized. But what else are these cameras doing in the work place?

Intelligent Cameras in the Meeting Space

Intelligent Camera Features

Intelligent cameras offer two crucial features: intelligent framing and intelligent tracking. Here’s what you can anticipate with these capabilities:

Intelligent framing utilizes facial recognition and tracking technology to identify the primary speaker or speakers in the room, generating a visually pleasing composition.

It ensures that the speaker remains centered within the frame, even while in motion, facilitating a clear view of the meeting proceedings for remote participants.

A great example of this is Yealink’s MeetingBar Series which features intelligent tracking and dual-sensor cameras to focus in on the speaker or leader of the meeting.

Intelligent tracking enables the camera to effortlessly follow a person’s movements, even in a rapid or sudden motion.

This functionality holds significance for maintaining optimal video quality during meetings and for individuals unable to attend live sessions, as they can later watch the recorded video.

Alongside intelligent framing and tracking, intelligent cameras encompass a range of additional features such as:

  1. Facial recognition
  2. Automatic zoom
  3. Low-light performance
  4. Real-time transcription and translation

When combined, these features contribute to a more seamless and natural video conferencing experience, elevating the efficiency and effectiveness of meetings.

Intelligent Cameras in the Meeting Space


As you can see, intelligent cameras are one of the most important pieces of technology in the new modern workspace.

Whether you’re leading a meeting or have multiple presenters speaking throughout the duration, intelligent cameras are a fantastic way of keeping everyone in the meeting engaged, no matter where they’re working from.

From focusing on the speaker to improving low-light situations, intelligent cameras are bound to have some kind of use in your office space, hybrid workspace, or huddle room.
