Zoom launches AI camera "Intelligent Director" to enhance hybrid meetings

Choosing the best video stream via a Zoom-designed AI, Intelligent Director can individually frame up to 16 participants in a Zoom Room using multiple cameras and send that stream to the gallery view of the Zoom Meeting

The launch of Intelligent Director for Zoom Rooms has been announced by Zoom Video Communications. Intelligent Director uses AI and multiple cameras for hybrid meetings with a Zoom Room to provide the best image and angle of participants in the room so remote participants can see each person clearly, even in large conference rooms.

Avoiding the “bowling alley effect”, Intelligent Director is specifically designed for medium- to large-sized rooms. Choosing the best video stream via a Zoom-designed AI, Intelligent Director can individually frame up to 16 participants in a Zoom Room using multiple cameras and send that stream to the gallery view of the Zoom Meeting.

An evolution of Zoom’s Smart Gallery feature, which uses a single camera and AI to give each person in a small to medium-sized room their own space in a Zoom Meeting, Intelligent Director takes this same technology to the next level for larger conference rooms.

Intelligent Director’s multi-camera configuration and use of video AI technology provide meeting equity to everyone in the room, selecting the best view of each individual, even if they move around or turn their heads, because in bigger meeting spaces, it is easier to be hidden by others when only using a single camera. Allowing in-room participants to be seen and heard, remote participants can now have face-to-face conversations with each Zoom Rooms participant.

Intelligent Director is made possible through the support of Zoom’s hardware partner ecosystem. Necessary to produce this major advancement, manufacturers including Apple, AVer, Dell, HP | Poly, Intel, Logitech, and Yealink have supported Zoom with the computer, controller, and camera solutions.
