AVer’s CAM520 Pro2 boasts pristine video quality with intuitive features to simplify collaboration. The CAM520 Pro2 brings brilliantly sharp, detailed video to any collaboration space. AVer’s SmartFrame, a next-generation facial and body detection system, automatically shifts the camera's focus and follows the presenter throughout each saved zone. SmartFrame ensures that everyone is visible on the screen up to 32 feet away. Designed for medium to large conference rooms or classrooms, the CAM520 Pro2 has agile features, including 24X total zoom (12X optical + 6X digital), Sony True WDR, and an 84-degree FOV. The CAM520 Pro2 offers built-in advanced integration capabilities, perfect for a controlled environment to allow users to connect the CAM520 Pro2 via RS232 or Visca-over-IP to joystick controllers and control systems. 

“We are incredibly excited about delivering a best-in-class conference solution with our partners AVer and Yamaha," said Brian Mignault, director of North America vertical solutions and smart collaboration sales at Lenovo. "Leveraging Lenovo’s top-quality computer alongside audio and visual solutions from our partners, we have the ability to enhance the meeting experience in larger rooms as the back-to-work migration begins. Tie it all together with ThinkSmart Manager from Lenovo, you not only have best-in-class technology, you’ll also have masterful management software to ensure your collaboration spaces are fully functioning and operating effectively at all times."
