Humber College has been utilizing the Meeting Owl 3 for conference meetings on campus. It’s a very effective tool that contains a 360 camera, microphone, and speaker that can be used for on-campus and virtual meetings.
Fanshawe has been using the Owl in our Facilities conference room for a few months and the general consensus is that it’s been a welcome addition to support hybrid meetings. One challenge we experienced was when the camera recognized the video display as an actual person – likely due to the sound coming from the display on the wall rather than the owl speaker! (The owl camera detects sound sources and directs the camera accordingly).
Has anyone tried other technologies for hybrid meetings?
