Vanco International LLC, an industry leader in AV distribution and electronic accessory products, today unveils an all-in-one video collaboration product: the PulseAudio Collaboration Video Bar (PA-CVB1). The PA-CVB1 has a modern soundbar form factor, a built-in 6-ray beamforming microphone, and a 4K ePTZ camera embedded in its center.
“We created the PulseAudio Collaboration Video Bar to give dealers an all-in-one option that’s simple, affordable, and sleek,” says Brandon White, director of new product development for Vanco. “The PA-CVB1 can be installed and operational in minutes – and it adapts to its users and environment, taking the pain out of setup and deployment.”
The PA-CVB1’s camera is equipped with smart framing, which automatically adjusts to frame participants; auto-tracking to automatically follow moving speakers; and a 120 degree field-of-view, ensuring everyone can fit on the screen. This intelligent camera can respond to either motion or sound to focus on the correct speaker. These silent, ePTZ-based features mean that users can collaborate without constraints – changing positions, sharing notes, or using a whiteboard without degrading the experience of remote participants.
The PA-CVB1 uses its beamforming microphone to locate and focus on speakers in real time. In areas with a high noise floor, the PA-CVB1’s microphone technology isolates and focuses on the active meeting participants, rejecting distractions and background noise.
The PA-CVB1 features plug-and-play USB 3.0 connectivity and a built-in software package offering functionality for Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Skype, and other popular conferencing platforms. Built for enterprise deployments, the PA-CVB1 is designed to integrate with other professional equipment such as collaboration switchers, as well as third-party control and management systems.
