BirdAI Hub Pro review
The next step for video conferencing
The Bird Hub Pro device boasts a sleek and compact design, making it a good fit for both spacious meeting rooms and tighter spaces, like home offices. Its clip-on locking mechanism ensures a stable and secure attachment to any monitor, eliminating any worries of movement or instability. An impressive 3D touch-sensing camera allows for a virtual touchscreen experience on screens up to 75 inches, enabling operation with the included stylus. The stylus is responsive and works well with the setup.
The mouse, keyboard and pointer are combined into one little device. This little all-in-one device is a bit of a hindrance. The keyboard is tiny and unintuitive and the mouse/pointer is a bit difficult to manoeuvre. However, you can connect your own USB mouse and keyboard and avoid using the bundled device. The essential ports are conveniently located at the back, the Bird Hub Pro provides easy access to all necessary connections.
Probably the most unique and impressive feature of this device, the Bird Hub Pro is equipped with an AI-powered camera featuring a wide 120° field of view. This ensures that all participants are captured even when seated close to the display. The camera's intelligent frame adjustment based on room occupancy enhances visual clarity and focuses on the person speaking and zooms in if necessary. This is quite a convenient feature during bigger con-calls.
Furthermore, the 8MP 4K camera delivers vibrant, images and videos, complemented by ambient light sensing technology which helps in low-light conditions. The picture quality produced by the camera isn’t the best out there in terms of absolute performance, but given the capabilities of this device and the array of features at the price point, the video quality is good enough to get the job done.
The device has built-in four acoustic beamforming noise-cancelling microphone arrays that provide good audio capture, minimizing background noise and ensuring clear communication. To someone on the other end of the conference, the audio is clear and crisp, even in more noisy environments with multiple people speaking. The audio output is channelled through the connected display to maximise the output, so output really does depend on the host screen, not the device itself.
Once you are past the setup and calibration stage, the Hub Pro becomes a valuable tool. With its robust performance capabilities, the device enables screen sharing from up to nine devices simultaneously. With the BirdHub Pro, teams can effortlessly brainstorm and collaborate using a digital whiteboard that is accessible from any location. Whether participants are physically present or attending virtually, this whiteboard facilitates real-time collaboration, enhancing productivity. One notable feature is the onboard camera, which impressively tracks the stylus with impressive accuracy (though some corners may not be as responsive as the rest of the display).
Supporting displays ranging from 36 to 75 inches, the Bird Hub Pro accommodates meetings in various room sizes. The stylus allows you to turn the previously normal display into a digital whiteboard to better explain points, making this an especially useful tool for meetings and other teaching environments.
Running on Android, it eliminates the need for laptops and allows for touch interaction with its stylus. The device also supports wireless content sharing and screen mirroring. It offers automatic configuration and multiple screen sharing, providing a comprehensive video conferencing experience.
It does add great value to any workplace setup. The suite of video-conferencing features is extensive with apps like Zoom and Meet pre-installed and ready to go, right off the bat. The whiteboard feature as well as the editing feature allows you to truly make your point on any visual. Plus the ability to share multiple screens at a time does make a difference to the overall experience.
The Bird Hub Pro stands out as a powerful tool for enhancing meeting productivity. Its transformative ability to turn any monitor into a touchscreen simplifies idea-sharing and collaboration. The device's reasonably user-friendly interface, coupled with its independence from external devices, ensures a straightforward and hassle-free experience. If your business is meeting-heavy and can afford to spend the buck, this system could be a great streamlining solution.
Whether connecting through USB or utilizing the Ambient mode, the Bird Hub Pro provides integration with popular conferencing apps and offers a real-time content collaboration platform. While some users have reported minor drawbacks such as a tedious setup process and a moody remote/pointer, these limitations pale in comparison to the overall convenience and functionality the Bird Hub Pro offers. Embrace the new era of content collaboration by adding Bird Hub Pro to your arsenal of meeting tools.
