Polycom Demos EagleEye Director at InfoComm 2011

At InfoComm 2011, Polycom demonstrated its EagleEye Director, a video conferencing solution that is ideal for rooms with multiple speakers and long tables.

Combining voice detection and face-finding features, the EagleEye Director camera/microphone package focuses on the active speaker during a video conference. It can be used with any Polycom telepresence solution, including HDX systems.

The EagleEye Director’s array of seven microphones locate speakers in rooms of varying sizes and shapes. Because of its 99 preset camera locations, the EagleEye Director will work in classrooms or other non-conference type layouts. Watch the video below as Polycom demonstrates this remarkable system (video recorded by AVI-SPL marketing team member Jessica Spicer):

Room: 314B

IMCCA State of the Industry Lunch and Learn
Wednesday, June 15
12:30 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.

What long term impact will firms like Cisco, Google, IBM, Logitech, Microsoft and others have on the collaborative conferencing space? Come prepared to learn, ask questions, and challenge the panelists.

Unified Communications – The Way You Want It to Be
Thursday, June 16
2:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Moderator: Michael Brandofino, EVP of Video and Unified Communications, AVI-SPL

UC has been positioned as the ultimate Utopia in communications. However, just like Utopia, it seems nearly impossible to achieve and many customers are frustrated as a result. Part of the reason it is elusive is because UC means different things to different people. What if UC was what you need it to be rather than what vendors and manufacturers think it should be? This session will explore the various ways UC has been successfully deployed and what companies like yours define UC to be. Our panel of experts will provide their insight into what makes a UC deployment successful and what things you can do to prepare your organization for UC the way you want it to be.

John Vitale, VP of Products for AVI-SPL, will participate in the following session:
