Maverick AV Solutions and Huddly join forces to create smarter meetings
Global AV distribution specialist Maverick AV Solutions has announced a Pan-European partnership with industry-leading manufacturers of AI-powered conference cameras, Huddly.
Maverick AV Solutions, part of Tech Data, will be supporting Huddly’s European footprint, enabling increased growth into new markets and sectors. Maverick’s 18 European countries will be distributing two conference cameras both on their own and in a one-box-solution, the Huddly IQ and the Huddly GO. With their advanced AI capabilities and features, they represent the future of video conferencing.
The Huddly IQ and Huddly GO are both certified to work with leading brands in collaboration including Google, Avocor, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Crestron and NEC Displays, truly making this conference camera a flexible AV product.
Both cameras have groundbreaking video conferencing capabilities. The award-winning Huddly IQ has a 150 degree wide-angle video lens, embedded microphone and features advanced room analytics and AI technology. With Genius Framing, Huddly IQ makes the meeting experience feel natural by smoothly zooming in on the participants and framing them perfectly in the image. Via the Huddly InSights API, organisations that choose to install a Huddly IQ camera within their meeting spaces can access data and crucial insights about how those spaces are being used. The camera constantly evolves over time through software upgrades provided by Huddly.
Huddly GO is a compact, wide-angle, software-enhanced conference camera that displays video content in high quality through a USB connection.
Simon Kitson, General Manager for Maverick Europe, explains:
“This partnership will allow Maverick to provide an even more agile solution to our customers. The Huddly IQ and Huddly GO are perfect for a range of meeting spaces and offer a great opportunity to resellers who want to deliver high-quality video conferencing technology alongside other components. We are able to offer Huddly consistent support for multi-country roll-outs and rapid deployment through our logistics support.”
