The Lumens series of PTZ cameras are a good BYOD conference solution. A great thing about the Lumens VC-B20DU PTZ camera is that is can be purchased with a USB to DVI convertor. This makes it easy to connect a laptop (USB) and integrate into an AV system (via DVI).
Other things that stand out in the range are the multiple inputs available, with the VC-G30 camera featuring DVI, 3G-SDI and component outputs, as well as x15 optical zoom. All cameras feature a bright f2.8 lens and have an RS-232 control interface, (some also include RS422).
The Lumens PTZ cameras are quite responsive and can achieve up to 300 degrees swivel movement per second. This speed is not always required, so a Slow, Medium or Fast speed can be selected. We trialled one of the Lumens cameras recently at DIB and found it to be quite responsive, quick to return to its set position, worked well in relatively low light and produced a nice sharp image.
