AVer Information Inc. announced today the launch of the TR310 AI Auto Tracking Distance Learning Camera. Designed for the evolving K-12 distance learning classroom, the TR310 offers Artificial Intelligence to automatically detect the teacher’s movement in the classroom, allowing them to focus on delivering their curriculum instead of worrying about staying within the camera’s view.
The Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms of the TR310 drive two auto tracking modes including Presenter Tracking or Zone Tracking with no need for a camera operator. Presenter Tracking allows the camera to automatically follow the presenter with either full body or half body, or manually track any other specific presenter with a simple click. Since the AI technology focuses on the body rather than simply the face, the camera recognizes and follows the presenter even if he or she is wearing a PPE mask. Zone Tracking allows automatic tracking between multiple preset zones to support different learning stations in the classroom. The 10X optical zoom provides a clear image of the teacher regardless of how far he or she is from the camera, allowing remote students to remain engaged with the instructor. The optical zoom provides better quality video from a further distance than cameras featuring only digital zoom, which can greatly reduce the resolution of the image.
The included free software allows for video recording, image capture and live streaming, while administrative features allow for the maintenance, control and management of hundreds of cameras from a single location. Compatible with all major video conferencing platforms used for distance learning such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Hangout, the TR310 will integrate with whichever solution the school is using. Connecting a document camera allows the teacher to display physical objects and material simultaneously during a lesson.
“K-12 schools need to solve the large problem of providing an immersive classroom experience to remote students with an affordable but professional-grade solution, not just another Band-Aid,” says Andy Teoh, Director of Product Management, K-12 and Pro AV. “The AVer TR310 addresses this with advanced AI technology that stands out among all video options on the market to track the teacher automatically without a camera operator.”
