The IV-SAM-VX2-S Automate VX is a voice-activated camera switching solution that brings the full multicamera studio experience to meetings, town halls, and classrooms. Crestron 1 Beyond cameras automatically switch based on the location of the active speaking participant. Visual AI enhanced camera switching intelligently frames camera shots with the participants centered. Automate VX comes with built-in recording and streaming capability along with outputs for video conferencing.

Production Quality Camera Shots
See who is speaking with close-up camera shots. Clean production-style camera switching provides a more engaging experience for remote participants or viewers.

High Definition Video for Conferencing
Connect 12x and 20x optical zoom Crestron 1 Beyond Cameras via 3G-SDI or NDI®|HX for high quality video output resolutions. Provide uncompressed high definition video through your conferencing codec of choice with the included SDI to USB-A 3.0 converter.

AutoFraming and Reframing with Visual AI
Visual AI directs Crestron 1 Beyond optical zoom cameras to automatically center participants in camera shots via AutoFraming. Reframing continuously keeps the participant centered in the camera shot — even when the participant moves from their initial position.
