First High Definition AutoAuditorium System Installed

The first installation of a High Definition AutoAuditorium™ System is up and running in Cambridge Massachusetts.  "The Broad Institute upgraded their standard definition single Tracking Camera system installed in 2007 to a full production system with three HiDef cameras, direct projector image input and a HiDef video mixer operating in the HD 1080i format," said Foveal Systems owner, Michael Bianchi.  "This system is a permanent part of their 300 seat auditorium.  Now any presentation in that room can be recorded or telecast at a moment's notice.  It is ideally suited for the most common type of presentation given there: a series of single presenters talking to a local audience using projected visual aids.  Because it is completely automatic, the AutoAuditorium System tracks the presenter and runs the video mixer without any human attention.  For events beyond the system's capabilities the same cameras and video mixer can be controlled by an operator." 

The Eli and Edythe L. Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT has the mission to bring together a diverse team of researchers, students and administrators and give them the resources and freedom to tackle some of the most challenging biomedical questions facing humanity. They want to dramatically accelerate the understanding and treatment of disease. Part of their approach is to create the methods, tools and massive data sets to do that work and share them openly with the global scientific community, thus rapidly accelerating biomedical advancement.

The talks and seminars given there and captured by the HiDef AutoAuditorium System are now part of that mission.

The AutoAuditorium System is the fully automatic, multi-camera system that produces videos of classroom and auditorium presentations without a crew. It is developed and marketed by Foveal Systems LLC of Madison New Jersey.  "AutoAuditorium" is a trademark of Telcordia Technologies used under license.
