The white OWL Labs Meeting OWL Pro 360 Degree 1080p Smart Video Conference Camera combines a 360° lens with eight omnidirectional echo-canceling microphones and a 360° speaker system. It can be used with several major web-based video conferencing platforms and is your video conferencing eyes and ears when connected to an in-room computer.
The Meeting Owl Pro’s single lens provides a full view of the room without any moving parts or image stitching. This USB device is designed to work with all major web-based video conferencing platforms. You don’t have to download or install anything. Just plug it into your computer and you’re ready to use it. In addition, using Wi-Fi to connect your Meeting Owl Pro to the internet or your mobile device allows you to join the Smart Meeting Room ecosystem. Once connected to your mobile device you can control the Meeting Owl Pro via a mobile app.
The Meeting Owl’s output resolution is 1080p, for sharp clear panoramic 360° video, and it features an eight-microphone array that allows everyone within an 18′ radius to be heard. Beamforming technology adjusts focus to the person speaking, and noise and echo cancellation ensure you hear the important things and not the air conditioning.
Multiple Meeting Rooms
If you have a team spread out across multiple offices that need to attend the same meeting, each group can join the meeting in their own conference room via the Meeting Owl.
The Meeting Owl Pro is suitable for use in medium- and large-sized rooms up to 15 x 20 feet. The mic pickup range for the Meeting Owl Pro covers an 18-foot radius, and it features Smart Zooming capabilities to cover people sitting further away.
Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, Skype for Business, Microsoft Teams, Webex, GoToMeeting, BlueJeans, and virtually all other web-based video conference software.
The camera captures in 1080p and the 360° lens shows the entire room and automatically zooms in and focuses on the person speaking. If you choose, you can lock the view using the Meeting Owl mobile app to prevent the view from changing.
The 8 omnidirectional smart mics and 360° speaker makes sure you can hear everyone in the room up to 18′ away from the device.
Connects via USB and combines video and audio to simplify your meeting setup.
The Meeting Owl Pro can be used when connected to a computer running the software platform of your choice. However, for your device to take advantage of the Owl Labs’ Smart Meeting Room ecosystem, you must connect to the internet via Wi-Fi, either through your network or through your smartphone. The ecosystem allows your device to access significant enhancements such as keeping a record of number of meetings, number of people in the room, and other information that Owl Labs reports back to you via the Meeting Owl mobile app. The Wi-Fi connection is also the method of getting software updates to your system.
Third Party Audio Equipment Compatibility
Although you can you use your own microphone and microphone extender cable with the Meeting Owl Pro, it is not recommended that you add your own speakers. This is because the Meeting Owl Pro uses both visual and audio cues to determine where to select as its main point of focus. If you use external speakers that would cause the device to point the focus of its video on the speakers and not on the person speaking.
