A well known eastern insurance company is employing Voice Tracker I microphones throughout cubicle areas to facilitate Skype for Business based collaboration meetings.
The Voice Tracker is mounted, together with a camera, on top of a large display monitor. A loudspeaker bar is mounted below the display.
Also below the display is a shelf to hold a laptop. The participants bring along their laptop, place it on the shelf, and connect it for the meeting. The team then stands around the monitor to engage in their conversation.
The Voice Tracker picks up the talkers around the monitor, and ranges of 25 feet or more, and with an extremely wide field of view.
The Voice Tracker I can be used since the AEC in Skype for Business is robust enough to adjust to the Voice Tracker’s listening beam as it moves rapidly from talker to talker. The Voice Tracker II can also be employed, using its own internal fast adapting AEC.
The Voice Tracker’s low cost make it possible to build several huddle areas on each floor.
