Shipping Q1 2017
The HuddleCamHD SimplTrack has been designed to automate camera control and reliably track subjects at distances up to 50 feet away from the camera. You will be amazed at how easy the setup and network management is with the SimplTrack. With advanced tracking options, once your camera has been installed you will never need to worry about camera operation again!
"This camera captures an 8' span at 4'. That's incredible!"− Don Pawlowski from Lakewood, OH United States
"Camera works great and picture is very clear. PTZ is very quiet. Note: Use Siig 3.0 USB cable to extend USB cable length. 15m works"− Roberts AV Solutions from Jupiter, FL United States
"Best 3x wide camera out there for the money. The 3x wide is idea for larger conference rooms so you can see the width of the room. It really gives you a clear image and the ability to pan tilt and zoom is fantastic."− Garon Smith, Olathe, KS United States
"I have tried other PTZ cameras. This camera has a very wide field of view and can connect to nearly any computer with a USB2. No additional software is required. I can't complain with 720p resolution. It can mount upside down to a ceiling if needed. I highly recommend this camera."− Doug Blagriff, Kaneohe, HI United States

Choosing the right camera for your room
At HuddleCamHD we know that every space is different. That’s why we offer cameras with various fields of view and optical zoom options from 3X to 30X. For small rooms we suggest the 3X for it’s wide field of view and affordable price point. For medium rooms that are short and wide you should consider a 3X Wide with USB 3.0. USB 3.0 will provide a noticeably higher quality picture when compared to USB 2.0. For longer narrow rooms we suggest the 10X-720 or 10X 1080p USB conference cameras. When you are working with larger boardroom style rooms the 20X or 30X will be your best bet. Finally, when you are looking for a wireless USB conference camera the HuddleCam Air will solve your need for flexibly wire free solutions.
USB 2.0 vs USB 3.0
USB 3.0 is 10 times faster than USB 2.0. That being said USB 2.0 is much less expensive to run cabling for and does not require a quad-core processor for optimal performance. USB 3.0 can provide uncompressed 1080p video signals. To use a USB 3.0 HuddleCamHD you must have a quad-core processor. USB 2.0 conference cameras can provide a 1920x1080p video signal but it must be compressed. USB 3.0 can provide the highest quality video images completely uncompressed.
Any HuddleCamHD camera can be wall or ceiling mounted. We suggest using one of the HuddleCamHD certified camera wall mounts when wall mounting the camera. If you are ceiling mounting the camera we suggest a HuddleCamHD Ceiling Mount. Once the camera is securely mounted to the ceiling you can invert the image through the IR Remote Control or our camera configuration software connected to a computer with RS-232/DB9 to USB connection. The HuddleCamHD control software allows for advanced camera control and new patented control system called the “PresetVisualizer”.
IR Remote Control
Every HuddleCamHD camera includes an IR remote control which can be used for camera PTZ and configuration. You will notice each IR remote control can operate up to 3 cameras. There is a switch on the back of each camera you can use to set the IR receiver in situations for controlling multiple cameras via the IR remote. There is an on screen display menu you can use to fine tune your camera settings (All cameras except 3X and 10X 720). Setting and calling a preset can be done by pressing the set button and the number you which to set the preset to. Then to call the preset you simply press the number button you have assigned.
RS-232 Camera Control
Every HuddleCamHD camera includes RS-232 control which utilizes the SONY VISCA camera protocol. You can therefore control the camera from a AV control system such as a Crestron or AMX. Or you can convert the RS-232 DB9 cable to USB and control the camera with our VISCA Control Software. Once set up properly you can control the camera from any computer, smart phone or tablet on your network.
Every HuddleCamHD camera comes with a 2 year manufacture warranty. This warranty covers any and all manufacture defects within the first 2 years. The HuddlePod Air and HuddlePod Air BIG Audio both include a 3 year warranty. This warranty does not cover actual end user damage.
