Digital Camera World Verdict

The Meeting Capsule’s ability to physical change itself means it can accommodate dual functionality, helping it justify the price tag. The physical remote means it is easy to command without installing quirky software, while the built-in active face tracking does a good job of sharing video of multiple participants. We’d like it more if it could operate from USB power rather than the mains, but it is nevertheless an impressive contender.

With professionals conducting an ever-more complicated home/office/travel balance, conference room cameras have been a hot commodity. Some are designed to go at one end of the room with a camera looking horizontally at a subject, much like a webcam. Others exist which can sit in the centre of a meeting huddle and see in 360-degrees. 

The eMeet is a hybrid which can take on both situations and what is more tailor itself to suit the situation. For a huddle meeting the camera lens points to the ceiling but has a wide enough angle to see the whole room, with AI cropping on participants. When fewer folk are involved, the camera turns on its axis to maximize the usage of the lens and sensor and re-orientate the microphones.
