Vanco International (opens in new tab), an industry leader in AV distribution and electronic accessory products, today unveils an all-in-one video collaboration product: the PulseAudio Collaboration Video Bar (PA-CVB1). The PA-CVB1 has a modern soundbar form factor, a built-in 6-ray beamforming microphone, and a 4K ePTZ camera embedded in its center.

“We created the PulseAudio Collaboration Video Bar to give dealers an all-in-one option that’s simple, affordable, and sleek,” said Brandon White, director of new product development for Vanco. “The PA-CVB1 can be installed and operational in minutes—and it adapts to its users and environment, taking the pain out of setup and deployment.”

The PA-CVB1’s camera is equipped with smart framing, which automatically adjusts to frame participants; auto-tracking to automatically follow moving speakers; and a 120-degree field-of-view, ensuring everyone can fit on the screen. This intelligent camera can respond to either motion or sound to focus on the correct speaker. These silent, ePTZ-based features mean that users can collaborate without constraints—changing positions, sharing notes, or using a whiteboard without degrading the experience of remote participants. For more information, click here (opens in new tab).
