Our partners at Jabra have reinvented meeting room audio for modern working with the Panacast 50. Learn more in this blog post.
Our partners at Jabra have reinvented meeting room audio for modern working with the Panacast 50. Eight professional-grade microphones and advanced beamforming technology that detects human voices, backed up with intelligent algorithms that remove disruptive noise. An array of four powerful Jabra-engineered speakers two 50mm woofers and two 20mm tweeters in a zero-vibration stereo setup fill the room with premium, high-definition audio, while the latest two-way audio technology delivers more natural conversations.
Jabra has goneall-in on getting you all in
Three 13-megapixel cameras, mounted in ahigh-precision multicamera array, create a real-time video stream with a 180°field of view. This covers every part of the room from wall to wall sowhatever work setup you're running, your teams can still meet in person whilekeeping a safe distance from each other.
Crisp, high-definition, patented real-time video stitching technology uses advanced algorithms to decide exactly the right way to live-stitch the three streams together in real time with no latency, creating a smooth, 180° field of view in Panoramic-4K. From single-person calls to full team meetings, this intelligent technology includes everyone in the most optimum way.
Fully immersive meetings for everyone
Virtual Director uses both AI-based video and audiostreams, as well as Jabra's proprietary intelligent algorithms, toautomatically adjust the frame according to what's happening in the meeting detecting active speakers to deliver a fully immersive and responsive remotemeeting experience.
At the same time, this intelligent software uses AItechnology to understand what's happening in the room and react accordingly,perfectly framing active speakers without cutting the people around them off.The result is a meeting experience that's been completely reinvented, makingremote collaboration more dynamic with a real human touch. So you and yourcolleagues can stay connected, no matter how physically separated you might be.
Make yourmeeting rooms safe again
Safety capacity and room usage insights generateanonymous room occupancy data for your meeting rooms, with Jabra's immersive180° field of view covering the whole room, so there's no chance ofparticipants being missed because they're out of frame. As well as twoindependent video streams, a third independent data stream maintains a constant180° view, ensuring full room coverage for PeopleCount data, even when both videostreams are zoomed in on a specific person or piece of content.
PanaCast 50 will automatically notify you (and whoeveris in the room) in real time, as soon as your predefined room occupancyguidelines are breached. Visual dashboard data allows you to analyze yourmeeting history to determine trends in safe room usage, and take data-drivenaction accordingly.
With this wealth of data, the PanaCast 50 can be aninstrumental tool in helping you decide how to reconfigure your office spacesfor a safe return to work in the new normal.'
Share yourwhiteboard with the world
Jabra has reinvented the whiteboard for modernworking, with their innovative new whiteboard streaming feature. A 180° fieldof view allows you to share your whiteboard content in real time, even if it'sangled sharply away from the camera, so everyone in the meeting can see what'son the board, whether they're in the room or not.
Jabra's intelligent software automatically correctsthe perspective to ensure the best view, while enhancing the image in realtime, reducing shine, gloss and shadows, and enhancing colour and contrast ofmarker strokes. Once setup in Jabra Direct is complete, your whiteboard will bevisible to anyone in the meeting, wherever they are in the world, with the dualvideo streams allowing you to display both the whiteboard and those present inthe meeting at the same time. And this feature is built in, so there's no needto buy a separate whiteboard camera.
The audio, video and intelligence experiencesdelivered by PanaCast 50 are architected by nine powerful edge processors,including two state-of-the art edge AI processors, specifically engineered foraudio and video. This ultra-advanced system architecture enables Jabra PanaCast50 to carry out real-time integration of audio, video and data.
This powers features like their always-on PeopleCount,which counts the number of people present in the room, even when PanaCast 50 isnot connected to a computer. PeopleCount provides 100 percent accurate roominsights 24/7, based on a constant 180° data field-of-view, even when the twoconcurrent video streams are focused on content, or zoomed in on individuals.
This unique system architecture powers all the outstanding features of PanaCast 50 such as Virtual Director, which utilizes the video, audio and data streams to work faster, more accurately and more securely and allows Jabra to deliver a meeting experience that's not just better, it's completely reinvented.
