The Huddle Room Answer


The need for more useful and innovative communication tools, enabling people to interact more successfully with remote colleagues, clients, suppliers and partners, is driving the growth of a new kind of video conferencing in the workplace – visual collaboration.

A major challenge is making sure that everyone and everything that matter to the meeting or presentation is ‘in view’ and visible at the far end of the room. But, a small room with participants close to the display, or a large room set out in classroom format, demands a camera with a field of view (FOV) much wider than standard conferencing solutions.

A typical Pan/Tilt/Zoom (PTZ) camera has an FOV of just 60°- 90° so not all participants will be visible if the PTZ remains fixed in one position. This leads to the need for one person to ‘direct’ the camera throughout the meeting to make sure that the current speaker or the whiteboard is in view. And, of course no one wants to do this, so the camera remains static in one position and the experience at the far end of the room is less than ideal.

But, after 20 years, the PanaCast 2 camera at last removes the tyranny of the PTZ camera and, for the first time, offers a full view of the room, its occupants and whiteboard surfaces - all without the need for any input from the participants.

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.”

    Robert
    ScobleFuturist / Rackspace

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

    Michael
    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.”
