    Conferencing Robots aka Motorized Video Conferencing Conferencing Robots aka Motorized Video Conferencing Presentation Transcript

    • Conferencing Robots aka Motorized Video Conferencing Simon Horne Founder Spranto
    • About Me • Previous Life • Bachelor of mechatronics engineering • Designed and built robotic machinery. • This Life • Founder of Spranto. • Software based Video Conferencing equipment • Authored a number of ITU Recommendations. 2
    • Examples of Motorized Conferencing 3 Moveable Devices Neck Devices
    • The Robotic Revolution • Existing • Integrated Design. • Hardware from major vendor • Using existing Far End Camera Control FECC (H.281) • Expensive • Future • Modular Design. • Off shelf tablets using Bluetooth control. • Soft clients • New Far End Motorized Control FEMC (H.284) • Inexpensive 4
    • Where is FEMC (H.284) at? • Currently a work item in the ITU SG16 Q1 (H.FEMC) • Holding adhoc meetings to garnish industry input and participation. • Chaired by Patrick Luthi (IMTC VP) • Works with H.323/H.320 (via H.224) • And yes it will work with SIP (via RFC4573) 5
    • Differences between H.281 and H.284 • H.281 only supports simple stop start commands. • H.284 supports • Simple stop/start • Absolute positioning • Incremental positioning • H.281 is limited in the number of axis of control • H.284 can control up to 255 different axis 6
    • What does H.284 provide • Up to 225 simultaneous points of control (ControlPoints) • Can be linear, rotational, translational, On/Off. • ControlPoints may support • Start/Stop instruction (similar FECC) • Absolute instruction. • have min/max and current position values. • Support video camera view portal range. • Incremental Instruction • Each increment is of x number of units. 7
    • Assigned ControlPoint Numbers 8 ControlPoint Identifier Motorised Control 0x00 Zero Reset all Control Points 0x01 Movement Forward/Reverse 0x02 Movement Left/Right 0x03 Movement Up/Down 0x04 <reserved> 0x05 <reserved> 0x06 <reserved> 0x07 Neck Pan 0x08 Neck Tilt 0x09 Neck Roll 0x0a <reserved> 0x0b <reserved> 0x0c Camera Zoom 0x0d Camera Focus 0x0e Camera Lighting 0x0f Auxiliary Lighting 0x10-EF <reserved> 0xF0 – 0xFF User defined
    • How does a ControlPoint work? • Each ControlPoint (CP) mechanism limits is represented by an equivalent linear positive scale. • A CP Advertises how it is to be controlled. Stop/Start, Absolute or Incremental • A CP may supply a MIN (commonly 0) MAX and current position. • A CP may supply a camera view range around the current position. • A CP may supply incremental step sizes on the scale. • Far End provisions controls according to supplied CP information. 9
    • Demonstration • Spranto client with KUBI Neck device from revolve robotics. 10
    • Getting involved • Contacts • Simon Horne s.horne@spranto.com • Patrick Luthi pluthi@cisco.com • ITU SG16 Q1 Meeting Geneva 28 Oct- 8 Nov • Latest H.FEMC imformation • http://www.itu.int/itu-t/workprog/wp_item.aspx?isn=9868 11
