The HuddleSTATION Deluxe System from Vaddio is a complete media collaboration appliance for small conference rooms. The HuddleSTATION is made up of a table-based MicDock and a wall mounted HuddleSTATION Sound Bar with WideSHOT type camera.
The system incorporates all the audio & video functions required for group collaboration in a sturdy and robust form-factor. This multi-purpose appliance is used for local presentations, PC-based unified communications, and VoIP conferencing, voice add-on and more.
The MicDock functions as the microphone, user interface, and PC interface dock. Four cardioid microphone elements, each with its own AEC (acoustic echo canceller) circuit, provide a 360° pickup pattern for all participants. The SmartMic technology ensures that pristine, crystal clear audio is maintained for both local and far-end participants with hands-free, automatic operation. A capacitive-touch user interface on the MicDock provides for dialing and conference control. The MicDock features interfaces for a PC, laptop or tablet, HDMI or VGA inputs to locally extend the PC to the room monitor.
The HuddleSTATION sound bar incorporates a pair of bi-amped, 2-way loudspeakers, four 25W amplifiers and an integrated native HD camera. Like the WideSHOT camera, the HuddleSTATION camera has a super wide-angle lens providing greater than 82° horizontal field of view (16:9) for even the smallest of rooms. It has a manual pan/tilt mechanism and a 3x varifocal zoom lens that further tailors the image for the small room. The HuddleSTATION also includes an HDMI output for the room LCD monitor extending the PC’s monitor when docked.
The included 25’ Cat6 SSTP shielded cable connects the HuddleSTATION with the MicPOD Dock carrying power, video, audio, control and network.
