Xilica And Aver Announce Technology Partnership

News Image
Xilica® and AVer Information Inc. have announced a technology partnership to support the growing demand for voice-based Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) camera tracking functionality in medium and large collaboration spaces, such as conference rooms, multi-purpose rooms, auditoria and classrooms.

The manufacturers have integrated control and monitoring of AVer's VISCA-based PTZ camera range into Xilica’s room audio systems, offering a drag-and-drop, codeless experience for system integrators wishing to utilize AVer’s Pro AV cameras for voice-based camera tracking. This functionality will soon be available within Xilica room systems for common beamforming microphone arrays including the Sennheiser TeamConnect Ceiling 2 and TeamConnect Ceiling Medium, Shure Microflex Advance MXA920, and the Yamaha Adecia RM-CG.

Voice-based camera tracking is a popular solution for effortless, engaging meetings, presentations and lectures where in-room and remote participants are afforded the same clear view of activities without requiring a dedicated camera operator. Voice-based camera tracking offers flexibility of room use and presenter style, while covering multiple speaker positions.

"We're pleased to be able to offer our partners the ability to deploy AVer’s high-quality Pro AV cameras natively within our systems," said Shaun Robinson, VP Product, Xilica. "By combining Xilica's easy-to-install room audio solutions with AVer’s broad range of camera products, we can offer our joint customers a comprehensive solution for any size of space."
