Salt Lake City – ClearOne was awarded a new patent on technology that automates the mapping of data streams from at least one local video camera onto at least one remote display in a video conference. The techniques described in the patent, U.S. Patent No. 9,525,846, help to make video conferencing easier to use, especially when dealing with multiple data streams and a single layout. Without the ability to automatically negotiate placement of video on a remote display, setup can be cumbersome, and must be done either manually, during the call or pre-configured by the system installer or administrator in a fixed way for a set of systems. Applications of this patent could include telepresence, virtual reality suites or surveillance applications involving remote monitoring of multiple video feeds from cameras placed at different locations on drone aircraft or mobile personnel.
