The Meeting Owl 360

To borrow any of the following equipment please contact

The Meeting Owl is an in one 360 degree camera and microphone for web conferencing meetings and small class meetings. It connects to your computer with a usb input and it requires a separate A/C power connection. As you can see when powered on it physically looks like an Owl, hence the name. It is designed for live recordings for meetings and video conferencing and it is compatible with both Panopto and Zoom.

Ideally you would position the Owl in the middle of a conference table to capture all of the subjects using it’s 360 wide angle camera lens. The nice thing about the Owl is that if you have more than one person talking around a table it will automatically change the view to show who is speaking at that moment. There is a volume control built into the body of the Owl, but otherwise all other settings are handled internally. The newest version of the Meeting Owl Pro requires an app to be downloaded to your phone in order to use it with Zoom and Panopto. After plugging in the usb cable and power cable you’ll just need to remember to change the video and audio settings to the Owl in the software you are using for the video conference.

Download the app from either the Apple Store or the Google play store depending on your device.

2) Launch the app and click ok to allow the Meeting Owl to use bluetooth to scan for nearby devices.

3) Optional: You can also allow to the Owl to send you notifications to your phone if you'd like.

4) The bluetooth scan should find the Meeting Owl Pro called DMS #2.

5) Once connected you will be presented with two Meeting Control options.

One is for Camera Controls and the other the Pro Connect feature to pair two Owl Pros together.

6) Before looking at the Meeting Control options please makes sure that the Meeting Owl Pro is selected for the Zoom video.
