Innovative Video Conferencing Solution 1 Beyond Collaborate™ AVS Now Shipping

Boston, MA – March 8, 2017 – 1 Beyond, Inc., a leading manufacturer of video systems for streaming and recording, announced that 1 Beyond Collaborate AVS™, an innovative video conferencing solution, is now shipping. Collaborate AVS offers an enhanced conference or meeting experience by automatically focusing the camera on the active speaker.

Ideal for larger meeting rooms, classrooms, courtrooms and panel discussions, Collaborate AVS gives a close-up view of the person talking and can be used for video conferencing as well as recording, streaming, or IMAG (Image Magnification). No camera operator is required as switching is automatic.

“Collaborate AVS is unlike any other solution available on the market today,” said Terry Cullen, President & CEO. “It uses the microphones in the room to indicate who is speaking and is not limited to one or two cameras at the front of the room allowing for greater flexibility in room size and configuration.”

Up to eight cameras and 250 microphones can be placed anywhere, even ​accommodating rooms where the presenter and audience face different directions. The system is easily configured with a browser-based interface.

Other features include side-by-side Conversation Mode when two people are in conversation and integration with the 1 Beyond AutoTracker™ camera which follows a mobile presenter.

Collaborate AVS supports the newest push-to-talk or voice-activated table-top mics or ceiling arrays, including Shure Microflex Advance, Shure DDS 5900, Shure DCS 6000 and 1 Beyond AVS Wireless Microphone systems .

In addition to standard codecs from Polycom and Cisco, Collaborate AVS works with software conferencing solutions like Skype, Zoom, BlueJeans and GoToMeeting. The software can run on the Collaborate AVS system so a separate computer is not needed.

Standard Collaborate AVS packages include two or four 1 Beyond PTZ-S20™ cameras and start at $12,995. Systems are available through AV integrators.
