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 gone all-in on getting you all in

Three 13-megapixel cameras, mounted in a high-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 – so whatever work setup you’re running, your teams can still meet in person while keeping 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 audio streams, as well as Jabra’s proprietary intelligent algorithms, to automatically adjust the frame according to what’s happening in the meeting – detecting active speakers to deliver a fully immersive and responsive remote meeting experience.

At the same time, this intelligent software uses AI technology 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, making remote collaboration more dynamic with a real human touch. So you and your colleagues can stay connected, no matter how physically separated you might be.

Make your meeting rooms safe again

Safety capacity and room usage insights generate anonymous room occupancy data for your meeting rooms, with Jabra’s immersive 180° field of view covering the whole room, so there’s no chance of participants being missed because they’re out of frame. As well as two independent video streams, a third independent data stream maintains a constant 180° view, ensuring full room coverage for PeopleCount data, even when both video streams are zoomed in on a specific person or piece of content.

PanaCast 50 will automatically notify you (and whoever is in the room) in real time, as soon as your predefined room occupancy guidelines are breached. Visual dashboard data allows you to analyze your meeting history to determine trends in safe room usage, and take data-driven action accordingly.

With this wealth of data, the PanaCast 50 can be an instrumental tool in helping you decide how to reconfigure your office spaces for a safe return to work in ‘the new normal.’

Share your whiteboard with the world

Jabra has reinvented the whiteboard for modern working, with their innovative new whiteboard streaming feature. A 180° field of view allows you to share your whiteboard content in real time, even if it’s angled sharply away from the camera, so everyone in the meeting can see what’s on the board, whether they’re in the room or not.

Jabra’s intelligent software automatically corrects the perspective to ensure the best view, while enhancing the image in real time, reducing shine, gloss and shadows, and enhancing colour and contrast of marker strokes. Once setup in Jabra Direct is complete, your whiteboard will be visible to anyone in the meeting, wherever they are in the world, with the dual video streams allowing you to display both the whiteboard and those present in the meeting at the same time. And this feature is built in, so there’s no need to buy a separate whiteboard camera.

Ultra-advanced system architecture

The audio, video and intelligence experiences delivered by PanaCast 50 are architected by nine powerful edge processors, including two state-of-the art edge AI processors, specifically engineered for audio and video. This ultra-advanced system architecture enables Jabra PanaCast 50 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 is not connected to a computer. PeopleCount provides 100 percent accurate room insights 24/7, based on a constant 180° data field-of-view, even when the two concurrent 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.

UC-certified means UC-satisfied

PanaCast 50 is optimized for all leading UC platforms. As well as being certified for Microsoft Teams and certified for Zoom, PanaCast 50 is also a certified device for use with Microsoft Teams Rooms and Zoom Rooms. That means wherever your team members are, and whatever collaboration hub they’re using, they’ll be able to connect with each other, as well as clients, partners, customers and just about anyone, in an instant.

Simple set up for instant meetings

PanaCast 50 is plug-and-play, so from the very first time you set it up, to its day-to-day use, it‘s incredibly easy to manage. Once it’s up and running, your team can just walk into the room, plug the cable into their own laptop, and be sure that it will work with whatever platform they’re using. There’s also an optional remote control, allowing them to operate the unit and interact with meetings without leaving their seat.

Three ways to set up PanaCast 50

PanaCast 50 has three different options to suit every room setup. Choose from Wall Mount, Table Stand and Screen Mount (VESA), with clear, easy to follow instructions.
