Meeting Room Hybrid Conference Systems: Meeting Owl and Kandao Meeting 360

The CIT HelpDesk has Meeting Owl Pro and Kandao Meeting 360 systems available for hybrid meetings. These conference cameras have advanced microphones and 360 degree camera systems that can determine the location of the attendee speaking and automatically frame each speaker within the video feed that is sent to the computer for use in remote meeting software such as Microsoft Teams.
