What is an OWL?
It is a 360 degrees camera that automatically focuses on the current speaker. It contains a camera, microphone, and speaker. OWL has the ability to listen to up to two or three active speakers and is designed to show the entire room.
You won't need to use the speakers in the room if you are using the OWL.

- Speak to the OWL, not to the screen
- Be patient when talking, the OWL will acquire you after a few seconds
- The OWL can listen to up to 3 people at once
- Do not feed the OWL
