Jabra launches real-time intelligent video solution "Jabra PanaCast" and strengthens foothold in huddle rooms
ORLANDO, Fla., June 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Jabra, the leading provider of UC sound solutions, today announces Jabra PanaCast, engineered to be the world's first smart Panoramic-4K Plug-and-Play video solution. This real-time immersive intelligent vision system offers 180-degree panoramic vision, which ensures everyone in the room is seen. Jabra PanaCast provides unique value for huddle rooms and spaces, delivering wall-to-wall video, audio and data, which is critical for modern video collaboration.
The announcement follows the recent acquisition of Altia Systems. Jabra's portfolio has always focused on solutions that enhance productivity through improved concentration, conversation and collaboration. With Jabra PanaCast, Jabra combines its 150-year expertise in sound with industry-first video technology to deliver the most collaborative huddle room experience to date.
Jabra PanaCast is the world's first intelligent panoramic video collaboration device with three 13 megapixel cameras, working together as one via core technology embedded in the built-in Jabra PanaCast Vision Processor. The multi-camera array solution offers a full 180-degree panoramic field of view, delivering a naturally immersive experience – a key element in building trust, driving higher engagement and ultimately achieving better business outcomes faster. The panoramic video enables everyone to participate equally, fostering healthy discussion and true collaboration – despite not being in the same room.
Intelligent resource management
The advanced AI utilizes a Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) to count the number of people in the field of view, up to 36 feet (12m) away, and provide numeric data that organizations can use to inform decisions on calendar management, room utilization and resource management, or to auomate facility assets' power management, such as TV monitors, lights, videoconferencing equipment and more. The technology will be available through the Jabra PanaCast API built for the Windows operating system and can be used for large areas like classrooms, auditoriums and general gatherings.
René Svendsen-Tune, CEO at Jabra, said: "We have always valued the importance of sound and personal interaction in every product within our Jabra portfolio. The introduction of Jabra PanaCast shows our commitment to enable businesses to achieve optimal collaboration and productivity through both sound and video technology. Now is the time to bring remote workers and huddle room participants closer together through the addition of high-quality, plug-and-play video to your huddle rooms."
Bringing the huddle room to life
Jabra PanaCast provides unique value for huddle rooms and spaces, ticking all the boxes critical for modern video collaboration. It easily mounts on a digital display or on a wall with available mounting hardware. The USB based connection allows connection to any compatible device for instant setup and mobile meeting capability.
The solution is compatible with popular cloud-based solutions including Microsoft Teams, Skype, Zoom, Cisco WebEx, Slack, Google Hangouts, GoToMeeting, Unify Circuit, BlueJeans and more, so workers can plug-and-play in seconds with their existing collaboration services by simply plugging the device into the computer USB port.
"We want to challenge the market in both video and audio solutions with a solution that offers the best in audio, video and data. And the first responses are promising: users report a four-time growth in video-based meetings and a nearly 20 percent reduction in meeting duration," Svendsen-Tune said.
