AVI-SPL announced the launch of CamÃ©lÃ©on, a first-of-its-kind multifunction telepresence solution designed to adapt to a customerâ€™s environment while providing the highest quality meeting experience. This unique solution combines state-of-the-art technology from leading audio and video manufacturers with AVI-SPLâ€™s experience in providing custom meeting rooms to create a high-quality immersive multipurpose environment at a price point affordable for organizations of any size.
CamÃ©lÃ©on combines a fully immersive telepresence experienceâ€”a high-quality, HD videoconferencing solution; crisp, cutting-edge audioconferencing; and local, multimedia presentation and display abilityâ€”in one easy-to-use system. CamÃ©lÃ©onâ€™s intuitive graphical user interface allows even first-time users to easily host a telepresence, video/audio meeting, or local presentation with just a few touches.
Unlike existing telepresence solutions that have strict room and environment requirements, CamÃ©lÃ©on requires no expensive room construction and can easily be adjusted to fit to most existing environments. CamÃ©lÃ©on is a customer-driven solution, as it is designed to be adaptable to a variety of requirements, including adding a second participant row; automated room control for lighting, shades, and climate; additional presentation sources such as DVD players and document cameras; and different color finishes to match existing office dÃ©cor.
Initial shipment of CamÃ©lÃ©on Polycom and CamÃ©lÃ©on LifeSize versions is scheduled for Oct. 1. Additional manufacturer versions are planned for release in the following months. CamÃ©lÃ©on demonstrations are currently available at AVI-SPLâ€™s Video Briefing Center (VBC) in Chicago with additional VBC locations planned in the U.S. over the next few months.
