BOSTON, Nov. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Owl Labs, the leader in immersive video conferencing technology and services, today announced that it has been named a CES® 2020 Innovation Awards Winner for the Meeting Owl Pro, the only 360° camera, mic and speaker video conferencing product for distributed teams. The reveal was made during CES Unveiled New York, an invite-only tech event bringing together top media, exhibitors and industry leaders for a sneak peek of the products and trends expected at CES 2020, which will run January 7-10, 2020 in Las Vegas, NV.
The CES Innovation Awards program, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products across 28 product categories. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers and more, reviewed submissions based on engineering qualities, aesthetic and design, functionality and consumer appeal. In addition, Owl Labs was listed as an honoree for Computer Accessories and Peripherals category.
Robotics and hardware are embedded in Owl Labs' DNA, as the company was founded by two roboticists, Max Makeev and Mark Schnittman. On a mission to make the experience of video conferencing inclusive for all, the Meeting Owl was created. Optimized with a 360° camera, mic and speaker and proprietary intelligence system, the device automatically identifies and focuses on active speakers in the room to give remote meeting participants and distributed teams a heightened level of awareness and visual understanding to drive better business outcomes. Its AI-enhanced intelligence system learns the room to focus on and automatically identify who is speaking.
"Being named a winner for the 2020 CES Innovation Awards is a tremendous recognition for Owl Labs. We're thrilled to be recognized by the Consumer Technology Association alongside so many innovative and influential brands. The ability to work remotely and effectively across distributed teams is a huge part of today's workforce, and our team is dedicated to make all teams feel more connected and productive," said Frank Weishaupt, CEO of Owl Labs.
