AVer VB350 Achieves Microsoft Teams Certification

February 26, 2024

AVer Information Inc. USA, a provider of education technology and video collaboration solutions, announced its latest innovation, the VB350, a dual-lens enterprise-grade video bar, earned certification for Microsoft Teams. This latest move promises an enriched and simplified experience for users when they couple VB350 with Microsoft Teams Rooms.

The VB350 boasts dual 4K lenses, offering an expansive 113-degree field of view and an impressive 18X optical zoom capability. This ensures vivid and detailed images across wide and deep perspectives, enhancing the overall visual experience during meetings. It also incorporates lens-shifting technology so all meeting attendees are captured for smooth and seamless conversations.

Another standout feature of the VB350 is AVer's SmartFrame technology, which automatically centers meeting participants from up to 22 feet away. This, combined with Presentation Tracking, allows the camera to effortlessly track and zoom in on the designated speaker, maintaining a high-quality image beyond the preset location. It’s also introduced Conversation View, a real-time tracking feature that dynamically follows the speaker for another layer of sophistication in its enterprise-grade video bar.

The offering also brings high quality to the table with Audio Fencing technology which ensures outstanding sound in medium to large-sized meeting rooms by silencing any distractions outside the viewing angle. The 14-beamforming microphone array pickup accurately captures resonant sound from distances of up to 32 feet away.

"A key element for optimizing collaboration in meeting rooms is a high-performance video conference camera, that is smart and knows where to look," said Albert Kooiman, Senior Director, of Microsoft Teams Partner Engineering and Certification at Microsoft. "The AI and enhanced PTZ tracking technologies of the Aver VB350, now Certified for Microsoft Teams, enrich the dynamics of meetings for the meeting participants."

The VB350 also supports Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) environments with an HDMI port for TV connectivity so meeting participants can easily connect their devices to a larger display using a standard USB cable. It also supports RS232 and Visca over IP, to give users control of the VB350, enabling seamless interaction with other devices and systems within their conference room.

"AVer is committed to expanding our range of devices that are Certified for Microsoft Teams, reaffirming our ongoing dedication to cultivating and fortifying our alliance with Microsoft," said Carl Harvell, Director of Product/ODM+SIU for AVer USA. "The VB350 combines impressive enterprise-grade features and AI functionality to provide a versatile and easy-to-use hybrid meeting experience solution for medium to large conference environments. Now, users can anticipate an enhanced experience with an additional layer of features that seamlessly supports and simplifies interactions with Microsoft services."
