Owl Labs, the AI-powered, 360-degree video conferencing solutions firm, announced its launch in Australia, with the Meeting Owl® Pro device, as the firm continues to increase its presence across the APAC to bring distributed teams together for more effective work.
However, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, currently forty one percent of the workforce is regularly working from home in the post-pandemic era. As a result, there is a much greater demand for technology that creates a more immersive working environment – bridging the gap between in-office and remote workers. Owl Labs’ technology is now more crucial than ever, enabling workers to collaborate from anywhere more effectively.
What is the market offering of Owl Labs?
Owl Labs products are used by more than 100,000 organisations around the world, including 84 Fortune 100 companies. Pre-pandemic, the percentage of employed Aussies working from home on a regular basis increased by a mere one percent every two years.
The Meeting Owl helps hybrid teams come together regardless of location so virtual meetings feel more like in-person conversations, levelling the playing field between remote and in-person participants; allowing for a fully seamless and immersive group meeting experience.
The Meeting Owl Pro is powered by AI tech that automatically focuses on whoever is speaking, using audio and visual cues. It creates the experience of in-person participation for hybrid teams and integrates seamlessly with existing video conferencing platforms like Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business, Slack, GoToMeeting, Bluejeans, etc.
In addition, attendees of video calls using the Meeting Owl see a 360-degree view of the room, along with up to three panels that dynamically zoom in on participants who are actively speaking or moving. Due to its plug-and-play design, it takes less than six minutes from unboxing to the first meeting, and it can be set up 3x faster than competitors’ products.
What were the executive’s thoughts on the expansion?
Frank Weishaupt, CEO of Owl Labs says: “Hybrid work is the new norm when it comes to how teams across APAC and the world collaborate with one another. With flexible work here to stay, we need to equip teams with technology that’s supportive of this environment.”
“Due to the rise of hybrid work adoption, we’re also seeing demand from countries like Australia for more immersive technology to bridge the gap between those working remotely and those working in the office to connect seamlessly,” Frank Weishaupt further added.
“We’ve developed the Meeting Owl Pro with a hybrid working environment in mind. The device is specifically designed to ensure every meeting participant has a seat at the physical and virtual table. Our aim is to reinforce a feeling of inclusivity, irrespective of physical location, so whoever needs to join remotely isn’t at a disadvantage,” continues Weishaupt.
