Equal-i is the name of Array Telepresence’s patent-pending image improvement algorithms, camera and Image Processor that dramatically improves the scene for telepresence-quality experiences using your existing videoconferencing codec in any standard conferencing room with standard elongated conference room tables and boardroom tables.
For dual screen systems the Array Equal-i DX dual-headed camera is concealed at eye-level in a 1 inch space between two displays (Curved or flatpanel. Video walls are feasible as well) and then the camera and space are concealed with a cover.
Transform Regular Videoconferencing From This View:
To a True Immersive Experience:
The Image Processor sits between the specially-designed camera and the videoconferencing codec. It is running Array’s custom image improvement and equalization algorithms on wire-speed FPGA and geometry warping chips that dramatically improve the scene from two separate cameras each capturing ½ the room before sending it to the videoconferencing codec for compression
On the other side of the videoconferencing call, the Equal-i Image Processor receives a single videoconferencing stream from its codec and splits the stream into two different high-definition streams allowing a single codec to power dual displays.
The Equal-i 2S Image Processor uses Equal-i Technology to cost-effectively upgrade dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of videoconferencing end-points to immersive telepresence.
The farthest participants are brought “up close and personal” increasing the pixel count on their faces by 6.5Xs that of a PTZ camera while “Equal-i-zing” their size to the size of the closest participant.
Vertical eye-line is improved by ~13% over PTZ, meeting format is improved to a more “across the table” feel, stand-up capture is enabled, and the system powers a wide-format dual display using a single codec with no impact on bandwidth.
