Jabra PanaCast

What makes the Jabra PanaCast such a revolutionary camera?

  • The world’s first 180° Panoramic 4k plug-and-play USB video camera.
  • Natural, ultra-wide field-of-view without the “fish-eye” distortion and with unparalleled visual clarity.
  • High quality (UHD) frames of 3840 x 1088 pixels per picture.
  • Compatible with all major soft video clients including Skype for Business®, Zoom, GoToMeeting®, Webex® etc. with no additional software needed.
  • Reduced optical distortion makes it perfect for both small/huddle rooms and classrooms/lecture halls.
  • Intelligent Zoom automatically adjusts pan and zoom to optimally frame all participants in the room
  • PanaCast Whiteboard extracts the image of a standard whiteboard or wall in the room and sends as shared content in a video call
  • PanaCast Vivid provides High Dynamic Range (HDR) correction to render clearly darker areas of the picture even against an in-shot bright back light (e.g. from a window)

More than 2500 organisations in 38+ countries are using the PanaCast daily to improve their communication and productivity. Over 200 universities are now adopting the PanaCast for lecture capture and huddle room deployments.

Huddle Hub One

Easy Content Sharing - with no cables!

Return on investment in collaboration technology is measured in productivity gains - which, of course, first requires staff to adopt its use.

Of course, just placing new technology into the hands of your user community does not guarantee adoption.  
Great utilisation begins with a great user experience and a lot of that comes down to the ease-of-use of the user interface (UI).

The best user interface is no interface at all

A growing number of industry product developers and manufacturers are taking this towards its ultimate conclusion – fully automated video meetings.  
We are not there yet but more and more products are appearing that take us closer to that ideal.

The Huddle Hub One (HHO) wireless presentation system is one such product.  The HHO addresses a major area of frustration when users want to share content from their mobile devices; smartphones, tablets or PCs. 

  • Many meeting rooms have no facility at all to share content from a mobile device
  • Connecting a PC requires your device’s video out socket to match the room’s video in plug; often a problematic time-waster
  • The display is switched to another source and you're left looking at a blank screen
  • Ad-hoc get-togethers outside of the formal meeting facilities have no content sharing support

    • Valuable floor space can be saved when refitting or building new meeting rooms greatly improving estate efficiency and ROI on building costs More on this…
    • More video-enabled rooms lead to reduced user frustration
    • When used as a sensor for room headcount, everyone in the room is included leading to enhanced headcount accuracy (no point in asking a camera with a limited field of view of the room for a headcount)

    Delivers 6 x lossless zoom capability on a 720p call



    • Clearer images to far end even when zooming

    • Users better engaged in meeting
    • Improved meeting productivity

    6.  Headcount API Can Inform Room Reservation System of True Status of Rooms



    • Fewer “phantom reservations” and unoccupied meeting rooms releasing more rooms to the availability pool
    • Enhanced space efficiency leading to improved ROI on building costs
    • Reduced user frustration when making room reservations

    7.  Room occupancy analytics can inform on optimum room sizes for refits and new builds

    • More granular and accurate room usage analytics lead to more optimally-sized video rooms being available to users
    • Improved meeting room availability
    • Reduced user frustration when making room reservations
    • Better User Experience – increased adoption – improved productivity
    • Enhanced space efficiency leading to improved ROI on building costs

    In the large multinational

    For larger companies, small meeting rooms, not previously considered viable for video capability are now being pressed into service and these smaller rooms, or Huddle Rooms as they are becoming known, create real challenges not just in the demand for low cost solutions but also around practical factors of vision and sound performance.

    The PanaCast 2 camera works with all the main cloud video services including:

    CISCO WebEx™, Google Hangouts®, Skype for Business®, Skype®, BlueJeans™, Zoom®, GoToMeeting®, Vidyo.

    And with the new HDMI adapter, PanaCast 2 can now be used with any standards-based video-conferencing systems from Polycom®, CISCO®, Lifesize® etc. that accept HDMI auxiliary video inputs

    In small mid-size companies

    For companies who have not yet adopted visual collaboration, there is a need for low-cost, enterprise-quality solutions that will work well in available meeting spaces.

    In the classroom

    For classroom use in education or enterprise training rooms where a single, fixed camera needs to see the whole class or to cover the teacher as she/he walks between lectern/table and whiteboard.

    At the University

    When the auditorium needs to be covered with a single fixed camera, the PanaCast 2 has both the field of view and the resolution detail to match the challenge. It can also easily cover the lecturer as he/she moves between the lectern/table and the whiteboard or blackboard.

    Security and Public Safety

    When there is a need to monitor and record a large space with a single camera view and have the ability to review any part of the image in HD quality.

    What our clients say!

    • “(PanaCast 2) is a very different form factor than the usual 1080p camera that we are using elsewhere in the lab. You can see it has no seams and it’s a very good picture quality.”

      ScobleFuturist / Rackspace

    • “PanaCast…actually seems like something that would be both fun and exceedingly useful.”

      SeoWriter / TechCrunch

    • “The actual image captured by the camera when we tried it in a lecture theatre (300+ seat) was perfect. Every seat in the frame, handled the lighting conditions well, good focus, seamlessly stitched. Very impressed.”

      Geoff Lambert
      Sr. Project Manager of IT & Digital Services / University of Western Sydney

    • “… a great improvement over standard video chat experiences.” Read article

      Michael Gorman
      Editor-in-Chief / Engadget

    • “The panoramic view allowed me to see all five remote participants at the same time, and the 4k resolution provided great visual detail – allowing me to feel ‘connected’ to everyone in the meeting.”

      What Ira M. Weinstein thinks about the PanaCast 2
      Senior Analyst & Partner / Wainhouse Research

    • “We chose the PanaCast 2 video camera because it gives an immersive sense of participation to remote meeting participants. With PanaCast 2, there is no need to squeeze together to get into the scene or waste time panning and zooming like with a typical conference room camera.”
