How Uber continues to innovate using PanaCast for intelligent, real-time video communications

Uber Deploys 850+ PanaCast Cameras Worldwide

We are delighted to share the news that Altia Systems, Zoom and the Uber team have collaborated to deploy 850+ Zoom Rooms across Uber’s 400+ global office estate using the PanaCast Intelligent Vision camera system.

Uber is celebrated for revolutionising peer-to-peer ridesharing, taxi cabs, food delivery, bicycle-sharing, and transportation and for being at the cutting edge of moving its customers around as efficiently as possible through its adoption of the latest in technology.

Uber has bolstered its internal communications systems with more than 850 PanaCast-equipped Zoom Rooms throughout it’s worldwide office estate in order to streamline its enterprise-scale video communications technology. 

Uber chose PanaCast to help reduce operational costs, enhance the user experience, grow utilisation and improve productivity and they are now realizing all of these benefits.

The camera systems are being used to connect more than 18,000 Uber employees in hundreds of offices across the world.

When people walk into a conference room, they don’t want to struggle with the technology – they want it to just work. PanaCast provides that while significantly enhancing employee productivity.  Thats why weve deployed hundreds of PanaCast devices across Ubers conference rooms globally,explained Ravi Sharma, Head of Collaboration and AV Service at Uber”.

Ubers rapid growth required an innovative IT solution to manage large-scale global deployments,said Altia Systems VP for software engineering, Naveed Alam. We worked with Ubers AV and IT teams to deliver an enterprise grade, zero-touch support and manageability solution that enables PanaCast devices to be updated and configured remotely as new technology develops.  It combines seamlessly with the PanaCast fundamentals of 100 percent video, audio and big data coverage to optimise virtual collaboration within a global company.

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.”

  • “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.”
