Information Technology Services (ITS) installed many Meeting Owl Pros in classrooms across campus for hybrid course delivery, to enhance remote streaming and/or recording. The Meeting Owl Pro contains an array of cameras and microphones to provide intelligent 360-degree video and audio. The Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the Meeting Owl Pro uses its microphones to keep presenters in the view of the camera automatically and provides panoramic view of the entire room. The Meeting Owl Pro also includes a high-quality speaker that can be used to provide sound in the classroom. If a classroom does not have an Owl camera, then the instructor should contact the department to see if one is available for check out or complete an online ticket to see how one can be obtained.
