(Boston, Massachusetts--August 1, 2014) 1 Beyond, Inc., a leader in streaming video systems, has announced the availability of the 1 Beyond StreamCam AutoTracker camera as part of its streaming product portfolio. An industry-first, this zero-setup, automatic tracking camera will automatically focus, pan, tilt and zoom to follow a presenter. Perfect for lecture capture/streaming where the presenter would prefer to move around than be fixed behind a podium. This camera eliminates the need for an additional camera operator and, together with the 1 Beyond StreamMachine enables a multi-camera event to be recorded/streamed with a single button-push. Additional auto-archive software will automatically transfer recorded files for later use.
The StreamCam AutoTracker uses advanced image technology to automatically identify and track a person. Auto-tracking begins immediately when the camera is powered on. No setup is required and no cumbersome arm bands or sensor mats are needed.
Video of the camera in action is available on the 1 Beyond website at:
