The AMLOS Solution
Activate My Line of Sight (in Development)1
The best innovation and brainstorming happens when great minds come together in a room. Because of that, remote work can be incredibly frustrating when team members are working from different locations and this can impede true creativity and collaboration. That's why Canon is creating AMLOS (Activate My Line Of Sight) - a software-and-camera product suite being designed to make hybrid work more interactive for in-person and remote participants.1 With the AMLOS solution, teams will be able to come together and remote collaborators can access that meeting space from virtually anywhere.
Using a high-definition compatible Canon 4K PTZ Camera5, the AMLOS Solution is being designed to give companies the ability to open office meetings to remote participants, who are able to clearly access multiple lines of sight, so they can focus on the speaker, the screen, the whiteboard, or other key visuals in the meeting that are determined by in office participants.2 In the room, the speaker can control the camera using intuitive hand gestures, and at home, the remote team member has a front-row seat, as if they were there.
Thanks to the AMLOS Solution, teams will be able to come together no matter where they are4, and teams can give creativity and collaboration the freedom to roam.
THE AMLOS SOLUTION IS BEING DEVELOPED TO PROVIDE THE FOLLOWING KEY FEATURES.
ONE CAMERA, MULTIPLE VIEWPOINTS
Simultaneously capture and stream multiple views from a single vantage point, using Canon’s CR-N300 or CR-N500 UHD 4K PTZ Camera.5
DIGITALLY ENHANCED STREAMING
The AMLOS Solution digitally enhances key visuals, from removing glare and reflections from whiteboards, to making sure screens at an angle in the room appear straight-on online.
Within a meeting room equipped with the AMLOS Solution, speakers can control the views of the camera using simple, intuitive hand gestures while they present.
Works with Microsoft Teams®
The AMLOS Solution is being designed to work with Microsoft Teams, so remote collaborators can use a familiar interface with expanded capabilities.3
