AVer Information Inc. USA, the award-winning provider of education technology and video collaboration solutions, announces a technology collaboration with Lenovo and Yamaha Unified Communications to create an updated Microsoft Teams certification solution for seamless, global collaboration. The plug-and-play hybrid meeting bundles include AVer’s CAM550, Lenovo’s ThinkSmart Core+ Controller and Yamaha’s ADECIA Ceiling Mic and Speaker Solution.
“Together, Lenovo, Yamaha and AVer’s CAM550 create a unified collaboration experience for business meeting spaces and remote offices,” said Carl Harvell, director of product marketing for AVer USA. “AVer’s expanded partnership with Lenovo and Yamaha provides a complete package for customers to easily and efficiently deploy, configure and manage a high-quality Microsoft Teams environment.”
AVer’s CAM550 equips two 4K lenses to capture a complete view of the room with wide-angle clarity. The first PTZ camera with 12X optical zoom (24X total zoom) to frame meeting participants, the CAM550 boasts an AI lens for automated PTZ functionality to deliver a full view of meeting attendees and seamlessly detect meeting newcomers. The CAM550 includes a secondary AI lens designed to capture and automatically re-frame meeting participants moving in and around the room. The CAM550 boasts built-in AI gesture recognition to operate the camera; meanwhile, it eliminates common touchpoints to increase meeting safety. Meeting participants can easily control the camera through AI functionality by holding up one finger on either side of the face.
“With our smart collaboration solutions, we are laser focused on delivering an enhanced customer experience for all meeting participants, whether they are in the conference room or joining remotely,” said Brian Mignault, director, smart collaboration at Lenovo. “Together with industry-leading partners AVer and Yamaha, our easy-to-use, all-in-one bundle delivers a tremendous Microsoft Teams experience.”
“Yamaha’s ADECIA provides crystal-clear, professional-grade audio without needing an AV professional to install it,” said Holger Stoltze, Senior Director of Technical Sales and Marketing
at Yamaha Unified Communications. “Meetings can’t happen without sound. Yamaha’s decades of engineering expertise ensures that the Hybrid Room-Ready Bundle is always meeting-ready.”
Lenovo’s ThinkSmart Core+ Controller, Yamaha’s ADECIA Ceiling Mic and Speaker Solution and AVer’s CAM550 offer seamless connectivity for Microsoft Teams to create a hybrid-room ready solution. AVer’s technology collaboration will provide users with another layer of seamless technology to increase meeting efficiency and participant engagement.
