Popular video meeting app Zoom has just announced a new feature, Intelligent Director, for improved hybrid meetings within Zoom Rooms. The technology uses multiple cameras combined with AI algorithms to display the best image and angle of meeting participants.

“As more people return to the office, it’s no longer enough to deliver the best remote worker experience; every business needs a solution to deliver the best hybrid meeting experience,” explained Smita Hashim, chief product officer at Zoom. “Even with some employees in the office, oftentimes other team members are dispersed, so meeting equity and inclusion become more important than ever. Intelligent Director is the solution that can bring employees together, regardless of location, so they can truly connect face-to-face”.

Intelligent Director will allow greater clarity for remote participants, even in large conference rooms, and help to avoid the “bowling alley effect” by sending streams to the gallery view of the Zoom Meeting. The AI-enhanced tech can frame up to 16 participants and is an evolution of the company’s existing Smart Gallery feature.

For larger meeting spaces, participants can often be hidden when only using a single camera, so Intelligent Director’s multi-camera configuration was designed to enable meeting equity for everyone in a conference, even if they move or turn their heads.

Intelligent Director has been made possible through support from Zoom’s hardware partner ecosystem, which includes industry heavyweights including Apple, Dell, HP, Intel, and Logitech.

Whether or not remote working has a future after the pandemic, video conferencing continues to prove a vital communication tool for keeping employees and teams connected, and continuous feature enhancements are a way for Zoom to maintain its position as a market leader.

Hamad International Airport saw a massive 31% surge in passenger traffic during 2023, with the transport hub now serving over 45 million passengers annually. The airport is now home to prestigious airlines, including Vistara, Iberia, Xiamen Airlines, Garuda Indonesia, and Japan Airlines, serving 250+ destinations for passenger and cargo flights.

The uptick in traffic is no doubt due to the completion of the first phase of an extensive expansion project. Hamad’s management intends to radically update the airport’s facilities over the coming years in a bid to create the “airport of the future”.
