Kandao Launches Kandao Meeting Ultra Standalone Video Conferencing Terminal at CES 2023


Share post:

Kandao is excited to announce the launch of the Meeting Ultra, a 360 conferencing device with two attached tiltable touchscreens to enable users to have conference meetings anywhere, anytime, any way they like. The Kandao Meeting Ultra won the CES 2023 Best of Innovation award for its innovative design of an all-inclusive conference device.

This new iteration in our hybrid meeting conference series builds upon our previous award-winning Meeting Pro. Just like previous models, Meeting Ultra features two lenses for panoramic video capture, omnidirectional mics that pick up audio up to 18 feet, HiFi speakers, and a built-in Android operating system, so that the device can plug right into any monitor and functions as a stand-alone video conferencing terminal. Smart-tracking AI algorithm allows the device to merge audio and video inputs to always focus on active speakers in any meeting.

Most important in this new iteration is the increase in video quality to 4K 30FPS and two tiltable touchscreen displays to enable users to view remote participants and easily log in to conferencing platforms directly from the device. With the addition of two displays, users no longer need to turn their heads towards external monitors, thus showing remote participants the side of their faces, a common challenge of 360 conference devices. Users can look directly at the camera and displays, so their faces will always be in the frame for remote participants.

The outer body of the Kandao Meeting Ultra includes two HDMI OUT ports to support up to two external display screens and an HDMI IN port to share the screen from a computer directly onto the two attached displays. There is also an ethernet port for wired connectivity, 3 USB A ports to connect the keyboard and mouse, an USB C port for peripherals (additional camera, microphone, or speakers), and an SD card slot for recording meetings.

Additional connectivity options include a 5G hot spot, a wifi network, or LAN to truly allow users to have conference meetings anywhere. Kandao devices are compatible with all major video conferencing platforms, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Slack, and Cisco Webex.

The device is designed to be flexible to the business user’s needs. It can either be permanently situated in the middle of the room to quickly set up for conference calls, or it can be carried from one office to a client site. This is perfect for panoramic broadcasting from conference rooms, single-person presentations, huddle room discussions, board meetings, and on-the-ground meetings for emergency response teams.

Kandao believes the Meeting Ultra offers unrivaled portability and flexibility for business users. As the world transitions to hybrid meetings, conference rooms must be upgraded, and employees must be equipped with new tools that enable the immersive experience of in-person meetings, even from the most remote locations.
