March 22, 2022 by Geoff Robinson, Senior Product Manager, PTZOptics

Within every industry, our customers– from houses of worship to corporations, classrooms, and individual streamers–have been asking for an auto-tracking camera that is pre-configured for simple operation and designed for practically any use case. The HuddleCamHD SimplTrack Lite automatically creates smooth tracking shots without the need for technological expertise or a camera operator. The camera is set to start tracking out-of-the-box as soon as it is powered and connected to the desired interface–no software setup required. Thanks to its 20X optical zoom, the 1080p camera can be positioned up to 55 feet away from the subject. With a 59.5-degree field of view and 270 degrees of rotation, the talent is free to move around the room.

The SimplTrack Lite is a true plug-and-play solution, and it is fully compatible with most video conferencing, lecture capture, and learning management systems. Users can easily integrate the camera with a variety of A/V components due to its range of included output options: NDI®|HX, USB, IP (RTSP/RTMP), SDI and HDMI. For audio capture, the camera features an 1/8-inch audio jack for an external mic. Featuring PoE, along with multiple mounting configurations, you can use the SimplTrack Lite within any indoor setting. You can configure the tracking parameters for preset zones that keep the camera centered on specific areas like whiteboards or podiums. If you are looking for more control, you can disable automated tracking and operate the camera with the included IR remote, analog VISCA (via RS232), VISCA over IP, a PTZ camera joystick controller, or camera control apps. The SimplTrack Lite comes with a power supply, three-year parts and labor warranty, and a quick-start guide that will get users up and running in no time.

Now available for $1,649, the HuddleCamHD SimplTrack Lite auto-tracking camera provides a user-friendly solution for all applications For product specifications and more information, visit:
