“Think of Mercury as your smart video conferencing companion,” says Hall Technologies vice president of technology Ken Eagle. “This plug-and-play product has built-in features that enable tracking for not only the audio, but for visuals too. It’s compatible with both OS and UC applications. Mercury is a dynamic bundled solution for creating better meeting equity in small to mid-sized meeting rooms and huddle spaces. It’s unique in that it can track and capture meeting attendees when they are presenting, while utilizing AEC (Acoustic Echo Cancellation), AGC (Automatic Gain Control), ANS (Automatic Noise Suppression) and full duplex mode communication to make all participants feel like they are in the same room.”
