Experience Cloud IntelliFrame in Teams Rooms
Microsoft IntelliFrame is an AI-driven online meeting experience designed to improve hybrid meetings. Microsoft Teams Rooms equipped with supported cameras create smart video feeds by zooming in on and framing in-room attendees, so that online participants can more clearly see their faces and gestures.
To enable Cloud IntelliFrame in your Teams Rooms, a Microsoft Teams Rooms with Pro license, and a certified camera will seamlessly enroll you to Cloud IntelliFrame by default.
Cloud IntelliFrame supports a maximum of 12 people in the meeting room and the system dynamically transitions between the standard room view and IntelliFrame view, responding to in-room activity. For instance, when a participant enters the meeting room, the view automatically switches to the standard room view until the individual settles down.
Multi-Stream IntelliFrame on Intelligent Cameras
Multi-stream IntelliFrame technology delivers on the promise and excitement around intelligent cameras: high-resolution IntelliFrame video tiles, people recognition, active speaker tracking, and a room view.
A multi-stream IntelliFrame camera sends individual video feeds of attendees in a Teams Room to the Teams meeting stage, identifying the person if they have enrolled in a recognition profile.
They get their own video stream with name label, and their names show in the meeting roster.
Remote users also see standard or panoramic (360- or 180-degree) views of the room to provide a frame of reference, based on the capabilities of the intelligent camera they are using.
These offerings provide the richest AI camera experience to date thanks to high-fidelity raw camera and audio data captured at the source, and significant advancements in AI capabilities on edge devices that can process such data.
The following camera models when deployed in a Microsoft Teams Rooms on Windows with a Pro license automatically use the Cloud IntelliFrame:
- Yealink SmartVision 60
- Jabra PanaCast 50 (coming soon)
How to enable/disable IntelliFrame
While IntelliFrame is activated by default, it is entirely possible to disable it in the Teams Room setting.
People in the meeting room can turn off IntelliFrame by using the in-meeting settings on the console and switch back to standard view for the room. All online attendees would then see the standard view from the room.
On the Microsoft Teams Room console, click on the ellipsis button and Turn off IntelliFrame.
