Professionalizing and Modernizing PEA’s Meeting Room with state-of-the-art Video
Under the state company’s “Digital Transformation - PEA DX” mission, PEA needed a smart
meeting room that is modern and welcoming but at the same time, professional, easy to use and
equipped with the latest digital technology. It wanted to use a mix of the most advanced equipment
such as computers, projectors and other connected devices for presentations and communication
activities with stakeholders.
This meeting room, which doubles as a conference space, is considered a very important area
in the company’s headquarters. For this project, it was crucial to install high-efficiency, low-latency
systems providing efficient, fast and flexible real-time solutions for individuals or groups to participate
actively and simultaneously in meetings.
The PEA required a unified conference system to save time and resources, and enable brainstorming, analyzing, strategic planning and quick decision-making.
Upgrading the Meeting Room with the Latest Conference and Technical Capabilities
Huawei installed the VPT300, an intelligent tracking appliance that is equipped with two HD
VPC600 video cameras. Using professional target detection and image analysis technologies, Huawei
VPT300 enables automatic tracking of conference speakers and intelligent image adjustment without
manual intervention. With Huawei VPT300, users can engage in more-effi cient meetings and have better
video communication experiences.
The VPT300 includes the following features:
- Automatic Voice Tracking and Image Recognition
Based on real-time voice detection from an embedded microphone array, the VPT300 can
track and capture close-up views of each speaker in a video conference
- Intelligent Target Detection, Adaptive Panoramic Image Capture
This feature enables the VPT300 to automatically zoom in and position speakers correctly
in the video frame, and smart motion detection identifi es the movement of meeting participants and auto adjusts the camera to optimize panoramic images. It enables speaker auto-tracking, adaptive panoramic image capture and person-to-person conversation mode (P2P).
- Person-to-Person Mode
The VPT300 automatically recognizes dual-speaker conferences and displays participants in two panes on the screen. Versatile capture modes include auto-tracking,
panoramic video, and manual settings to customize the sensitivity of image switching.
- Plug and Play Air Presence Key
This system can connect up to 200 locations simultaneously in one meeting. In addition,
this enables all participants in the meeting room to wirelessly share content from their
PCs with just one simple click, with no messy cables and additional plugs.
