Following its announcement in April 2021, Jabra confirms that the PanaCast 50 is now shipping and is certified for Microsoft Teams and Zoom rooms. Engineered to be the world’s first new-normal-ready intelligent video bar, the PanaCast 50 reinvents meeting room video, audio and intelligence for the ‘new normal’ workspace.
Jabra collaborated with Intel to provide a computer vision solution to help facilitate more engaging and productive meetings. The PanaCast 50 has been engineered to help businesses navigate the flexible hybrid way of working. Combining immersive video, world-leading audio technologies and cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence, the PanaCast 50 completely reinvents meetings and collaboration.
Jabra leveraged Intel technology to deliver intelligent zoom, active speaker detection, and other innovative capabilities – all to streamline and optimise the conferencing experience. This technology powers the Virtual Director feature to automatically adjust the frame according to what’s happening in the meeting, allowing Jabra PanaCast 50 to detect active speakers and the flow of conversation, thereby delivering a remote meeting experience that’s fully immersive and responsive.
Security and privacy are top concerns for organisations. The Intel Edge AI processing capabilities within the PanaCast 50 help keep sensitive data secure by eliminating the need to transmit video and audio data to the cloud. By performing the analysis directly on the device, cloud security and data-in-transit risks are removed from the collaboration experience. Additionally, because the experiences are powered on the device, not only are the risks of security breaches significantly minimised, the accuracy, speed, and overall quality of the experience are maximised.
Peter Jayaseelan, Managing Director, South Asia, Jabra, said, “We are happy to announce that the PanaCast 50 is now available for shipping. The Jabra PanaCast range has been engineered to help businesses navigate the flexible hybrid way of working. It combines immersive vision and video like never before, world-leading audio technologies and cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence to completely reinvent meetings and collaboration. We would not have been able to make our vision of an effortless collaboration experience become a reality without our partnership with Intel. Extraordinary times call for extraordinary solutions and we believe the new Jabra PanaCast 50 delivers just that.”
Brad Haczynski, Vice President and General Manager, IoT Sales, Intel stated, “Jabra is delivering a smart, more secure, and more natural collaboration experience with the PanaCast 50, powered by the Intel Movidius VPU. The AI technology enables more engaging and productive meetings which can lead to increased collaboration and innovation in the hybrid workplace.”
