I recently was a remote participant in a seminar at Stanford University, and found it quite nice that they were using a 360° camera which made it possible for us remote participants to see the entire room. But what real amazement happened during the Q&A section when I saw the camera zoom in on whoever in the audience asked a question. And when there was an exchange between two people in the room, both of them where enlarged in the screen. It really enhanced my experience as a remote participant.
It turns out they were using an owl:
Anyone here has more experience with this (or similar technology)?
In the seminar I attended, I found the audio quality somewhat lacking, but I saw that it is possible to add extra microphones to the device.
