Lumens PTZ camera offers advanced tracking functions
Lumens has unveiled the VC-TR1, a professional auto tracking camera equipped with facial detection technology.
It offers three tracking modes: Stage Tracking that follows a target on stage; Everywhere Tracking that followers a speaker who leaves the stage to talk to an audience; and Partition Tracking that creates four preset zones for a presenter to walk in a specific area. In Everywhere Tracking mode the speaker does not require tracking device and there are no restrictions for space or connectivity, even if the speaker is obscured by other people. The three modes can work cohesively in Super Tracking mode.
The VC-TR1 integrates a PTZ camera and 112-degree FOV panoramic camera. A dual lens design means it can capture the whole view and track a speaker simultaneously. When tracking, the VC-TR1 automatically switches the video frame. Audiences see a presenter and the content of a whiteboard or presentation material.
It has a 1080p Full HD sensor, 20x optical zoom and supports multiple output interfaces such as HDMI, 3G-SDI, IP (PoE) and USB.
The VC-TR1 is suited to content production applications in a range of vertical markets, such as distance learning, video conferencing and event staging.
