VC-A50P PTZ IP Camera and Camera Controller Help Facilitate Interpreters' Programs
at the 2019 G20 Summit
Facilitating translation in realtime with Lumens.
The G20 (or Group of 20) was founded in 1999 and is made up of the world’s 19 biggest economies and the European Union. It meets annually with the aim of promoting international financial stability and discussing world affairs. This year, Japan hosted the event for the first time in Osaka on 28-29 June. As multiple languages are spoken in one meeting, simultaneous interpretation plays a big role in the G20 Summit ensuring smooth communication. To ensure the best work conditions for the interpreters, the host of the G20 Summit installed 20 Lumens Integration VC-A50P PTZ IP cameras and paired them with the IP camera controller VS-KB30 to capture the speakers’ movements and live stream videos to the interpreter’s screen, to improve the accuracy of translation in realtime. “Lumens VC-A50P PTZ camera was chosen due to its outstanding capability. The cameras were easy to install, support PoE for long-distance image/sound transmission and offer a nice image quality. The newly released IP camera controller also satisfies the need for control in order to broadcast the videos,” said Hideki Utsugi, manager of the Network Solution Business Unit at MTC Japan. In addition, the VC-A50P was compatible with the selected conference and discussion system for the event, which increased reliability and compatibility for a wide range of business users. “This is a significant step for Lumens, as our PTZ camera and camera controller win the client’s trust and share the world stage. Lumens products have a proven track record in product quality and performance,” said David Liu , sales director of Lumens Digital Optics Inc. “We look forward to working closely with our Japanese customers and provide an advanced and reliable videoconferencing solution to benefit their pro-AV programmes.”
