Jabra unveiled the PanaCast 50 Video Bar System at ISE 2023 as part of the company’s PanaCast 50 solution portfolio for small- and medium-sized meeting rooms.
The Jabra PanaCast 50 Video Bar System is an integrated solution that includes an Android-based compute unit as well as state-of-the-art System and Organization Controls (SOCs), speakers, microphones, video camera, with network and display interfaces for easy deployment. The solution comes with a 10.1” touch controller to manage the room experience. The system natively and securely runs Microsoft Teams Rooms on Android or Zoom Rooms.
The complete portfolio delivers flexible deployment options to bring the best collaboration experience to users. Businesses can choose an integrated solution on Android, a modular solution on Windows through the PanaCast 50 Room Systems with Lenovo and Crestron, or a BYOD solution with PanaCast 50.
The PanaCast 50 Video Bar System offers the same user experience as the two other solutions in the portfolio. It features full-room coverage with its 180-degree field of view Panoramic-4K multi-camera array, which delivers true-to-life representation of the people in the room.
It also has eight professional-grade microphones with voice detection and intelligent algorithms that automatically identify and remove residual echoes and static noise, as well as an array of four powerful speakers in a zero-vibration stereo setup. Meanwhile, its Intelligent Meeting Room Experiences, which include the Virtual Director, Intelligent Zoom and Dynamic Composition, provide an engaging experience for remote participants.
The PanaCast 50 Video Bar System is designed to adapt to the evolving UC experiences and hybrid workplace needs with its AI-powered software-defined platform. Above all, it is easy to install, manage and use, including everything needed for video meetings embedded in the PanaCast Control for a one-touch start/join without requiring any additional devices. This allows for simple, secure, and scalable deployment and management in any small-medium sized rooms.
“We have an urgent need to improve collaboration in today’s hybrid working era,” said Aurangzeb Khan, SVP for Intelligent Vision Systems at Jabra. “Our research found that meeting equity has a strong impact on an employee’s experience, well-being, and productivity levels. The addition of the PanaCast 50 Video Bar System as a room solution to the Jabra PanaCast portfolio — with the already-delivered BYOD and room system solutions — can vastly enhance the hybrid meeting experience. The Jabra PanaCast 50 solution portfolio addresses the spectrum of business needs for small-medium sized meeting rooms. We want to facilitate effortless discussions and encourage innovation amongst meeting attendees no matter their location.”
The PanaCast 50 Video Bar System will be available June 2023, MSRP: $4,299.
