Product Overview

The Polycom® EagleEye™ Director II camera is a dynamic locating technology that identifies participants within the viewing range of the system. It automatically pans, tilts, and zooms the camera, frames the speaker, and sends a framed image to the connected system or device. The EagleEye Director II camera acts as a director of a video production, and uses sophisticated Polycom-developed technology. The camera is a dual-camera solution that uses EagleEye IV 12x cameras with 1080p resolution.

Initially, one camera captures the current view, while the other camera uses microphones to voice-track the next target. The camera frames the speaker prior to displaying the video so that call participants don't see the pan/tilt/zoom of the cameras. If two people speak alternately, one camera tracks the first speaker, while the other camera tracks the second speaker.

You can use the camera as a USB camera in the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) mode, connect to a RealPresence Group Series system in the Group Series mode, or let the camera automatically detect a connection.

To provide different perspectives and camera angles, and to improve communication in conference calls, you can cascade two EagleEye Director II cameras in the same room. The camera supports three different placement scenarios for cascading in medium to large conference rooms.
