Huddly makes smart cameras for new Google Meet Series One room kits from Lenovo

Two smart cameras made by Huddly are going to feature in the Google Meet Series One room kits, a new generation of meeting room devices announced by Google Cloud and Lenovo. With cameras for large, medium, and small room kits, and Power over Ethernet technology, the kits can be tailored to fit all of your rooms.

TJ Varghese, Group Product Manager at Google, comments: “For the Series One, we wanted cameras that help us enable immersive, lifelike experiences and are able to capture high-fidelity images of all participants in any scenario, including large rooms. We worked with Huddly to build these Smart Cameras which deliver this in the elegant Series One design that has no moving parts and blends into any office.”

Stein Ove Eriksen, Huddly CEO and Co-founder, adds: “This is an exciting next step in our longstanding partnership with Google Cloud, building upon our previous successful collaborations on the previous Google Meet kit with Asus and the IQ mount for Jamboard. The Series One room kits provide the kind of inclusive user experience that is that heart of everything we do here at Huddly, and we are excited to work with Google Cloud and Lenovo to bring these high-quality video experiences to everyone.”

Smart video for any size room

The Series One Smart Camera XL for large meeting rooms and the Series One Smart Camera for small and medium rooms are two new cameras that are both made by Huddly. Both cameras use Power over Ethernet technology to make setup easy and flexible, with no limits in regards to cable length.

Designed to deliver an excellent video experience in a compact form factor, the cameras ensure that everyone is seen and included in the conversation, no matter the size of the room. With continuous participant framing, they are able to automatically detect meeting participants and focus in on them to make conversations more natural.

Thanks to a large one-inch sensor, the camera can cover large boardrooms and capture everybody in high quality, including the people on the far end of the room.Its fixed lens enables it always to see the entire room, detect and frame participants, and capture movement and facial expressions as they happen.

The Smart Camera XL is available as part of the Series One Large Room Kit.
