Intelligent Software & Design
The Meeting Owl is a 360° all-in one audio and video conferencing device. The magic is it’s intelligent software that provides a panoramic view of the room and automatically focuses on the most current speaker.
Exceptional Audio & Video
Remote attendees need full context of the conversation in order to truly participate. The Meeting Owl has an 8-microphone array and a custom designed single lens solution to provide the unique experience.
The 360° lens shows the remote participant a view of the entire room and automatically focuses on the most recent speakers.
The 8 omnidirectional beamforming microphones and 360° speaker ensure that everyone is heard.
The Meeting Owl connects via USB and combines video & audio to simplify your huddle room set up
It just works with all major online video conferencing tools. No downloads needed.
Typical video conferencing cameras put your remote teammates at a disadvantage. Think about it — you can’t hear, you can’t see faces and body language, and thus it’s near impossible to follow the conversation. That’s a terrible experience.
How does the Meeting Owl fix this? The Meeting Owl is a 360° intelligent video conferencing camera. It learns where everyone is sitting in the room and then auto-focuses on a person when he or she starts speaking. It’s like magic. (Or really … robotics!)
Remote employees finally feel included in the meeting because they can see and hear everyone. It’s a much more engaging experience.
Introducing A New Experience in Conferencing and Remote Meetings
The idea for the Meeting Owl was born when Owl Labs’ co-founder and CTO Mark Schnittman was working remotely for a startup in Las Vegas while living in Boston. As one of the only remote employees, meeting and working with a group of people sitting together was incredibly painful. It was hard to see what was going on, difficult to hear what people were saying, and a challenge to actively contribute.
It became clear that current video conferencing tools are not optimized for remote participants and don’t provide them with a helpful, inclusive experience. Technologies today often leave remote employees feeling like a “fly on a wall” or a mere lurker during in-person team meetings. That’s not right.
He recognized the need for an intelligent conferencing camera that met the requirements of today’s workforce. Whether it is a single remote worker at a remote location or a team of people in a conference room. From that need, the Meeting Owl was born.
While there’s no substitute for face-to-face, Owl Labs’ new product is the best immersive conferencing tool we’ve seen. Conversations are much more natural. It has improved our cross-coastal communications and brought us a significant step closer to the face-to-face experience.
