The NIU Division of Information Technology (DoIT) Classroom Team is installing Meeting Owl Pros in some classrooms scheduled in Spring 2021 for hybrid course delivery, to enhance remote streaming and/or recording. The Meeting Owl Pro contains an array of cameras and microphones to provide intelligent 360-degree video and audio. The Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the Meeting Owl Pro uses its microphones to keep presenters in the view of the camera and provides panoramic view of the entire room. The Meeting Owl Pro also includes a high-quality speaker that can be used to provide sound in the classroom.
Meeting Owl Pro is a 360o smart conferencing camera with exceptional meeting experience, high resolution 1080p and premium sound.
