Auto Tracking Camera Features
With an all-new layout and improved performance the SimplTrack 2 is the industry’s most advanced and reliable auto-tracking camera on the market. The HuddleCamHD SimplTrack2 can be configured for optimal performance one time, so you can set it and forget it.
Adjustable Tracking Modes:
The SimplTrack2 uses artificial intelligence to recognize and track a person’s movement across a field of view. The camera gives operators the ability to track an individual and even customize frame settings to capture entire white board spaces. With full control over scene height and width, users can also choose to allow the camera to automatically pan, tilt and zoom with a variety of speed settings to match presentation styles. The artificial intelligence of the SimplTrack2 is able to recognize a person’s full body, upper half, or a head-and-shoulders view. This adaptable recognition allows the camera to track a person, even when they are partially blocked by an object.
Preset Zone Tracking:
In addition to auto-tracking, users can create up to four unique zones within a scene, such as a whiteboard area or a podium. When the subject moves within these zones, the camera will stay fixed on this zone, so the audience does not miss any important information. When the subject leaves a zone, the camera will resume tracking the subject. This feature can immediately enhance the production value of lectures and video recordings. Using the 4K reference camera image, users can select up to four custom-sized areas to move the camera to any specific PTZ preset location. This is ideal for automatically moving the camera to a lecture space when auto-tracking movement is unnecessary.
Touchless Control & Automation:
SimplTrack2 preset zones can also be used to automate AV systems. Each preset zone can be used to send an HTTP, TCP or UDP trigger to control systems such as Crestron, Extron or even software like vMix. In this way, users can use preset zones to switch video for lectures that are being recorded or even turn on various AV-connected devices. For example, use a preset zone to automatically show a teacher’s presentation PC full screen in a recording.
Camera Management Software:
The SimplTrack2 camera control software makes managing and controlling cameras connected to a network easier. The software can be used for live viewing, camera control, video recording (via SD card, or local computer hard drive), live streaming management, zone configurations and tracking parameter adjustments. View up to four cameras simultaneously, and easily take control of any SimplTrack2 with the click of a button.
Ready to live stream:
The SimplTrack2 can live stream directly to Facebook, YouTube and other CDNs. Live stream to up to four destinations at the same time, for production or high-quality video monitoring. The SimplTrack2 features a 3.5mm audio input to include audio with each stream.
