Video conferencing provider Lifesize Inc. has launched a high-definition camera and phone system geared for small meeting rooms. The Icon 450, paired with Lifesize's cloud-based video communication platform, uses a smart-framing sensor that automatically adjusts the camera to capture everyone in the picture.

Small conference rooms, also called huddle rooms, usually have tight dimensions and accommodate three to six people. If conducting a video call in a huddle room, teams might find it difficult to fit everyone in the picture. Lifesize's new camera aims to fix that problem.

The camera's wide-angle lens offers a field of view that is 82 degrees horizontally and 59 degrees vertically. The camera can automatically pan, tilt and zoom to focus on meeting participants and track movement.
