Configure Camera Tracking Settings

Poly camera tracking technology provides automatic speaker and group framing in the room.

Tracking options and behavior depend on your system model and camera. For example:
  • The Frame Speaker camera tracking option isn’t available on the Studio X50 or Studio X30 systems.
  • If you use a standalone EagleEye IV camera with a G7500 system, you won’t see tracking options.

Procedure

  1. In the system web interface, go to Audio/Video > Video Inputs.
  2. Go to Input 1 and specify a camera Tracking Mode.
    • Frame Group
      • For G7500 systems: The camera automatically locates and frames participants in the room without moving the camera.
      • For Studio X50 and Studio X30 systems: The camera automatically locates and frames participants in a small or medium room.
    • Frame Group with Transition: The camera automatically locates and frames participants in the room while moving the camera. For example, if someone enters the room, you might see the camera pan until that person is in view. This option is available only with a G7500 system using an EagleEye Producer camera.
    • Frame Speaker: The camera automatically locates and frames the active speaker. When someone else starts speaking, the camera switches to that person.
      Note: When you mute the local microphone, the camera tracking mode automatically switches to Frame Group.
    • Off: Disables automatic tracking. You must handle all camera control manually.
  3. Select a Tracking Speed, which determines how quickly the camera frames new speakers and participants.
    The room environment can influence the tracking speed.
  4. Optional: Turn on the Picture in Picture setting.
    This setting is available only with G7500 systems using an EagleEye Director II camera. When enabled, a picture-in-picture window displays showing a wide angle of the room in addition to the main window showing the primary speaker(s).
  5. Select Save.
