We are delighted that the amazing Jabra PanaCast with avt mezzoCast has been shortlisted for the prestigious 2019 AV Awards!
Up against a record 700+ entrants, Jabra PanaCast has been selected as finalist in the Communication Technology of the Year category.
Jabra PanaCast is the latest iteration of the world’s first 180°, 4K, Panoramic, Plug-and-Play video camera that delivers big benefits in the huddle room and classroom where its industry-leading wide-angle view ensures that everyone and everything is visible to the far end.
The camera’s 180° field-of-view allows participants to sit very close to the display/camera without that closeness being apparent to the far end (a trick of the unique triple-camera array technology). The wasted space (needed between legacy cameras and the closest participants) is no longer necessary saving at least 30% of the floorspace.
AI-Enabled Headcount Sensor
The Jabra PanaCast intelligent vision system provides a live room occupancy count (even when it’s not streaming). This may be polled via its API.
The Jabra PanaCast camera sees a 180° view of the room. There’s no point in asking a camera with a lesser field of view for a headcount.
avt mezzoCast is a cloud service and middleware application that ingests people count data from each room’s Jabra PanaCast camera and logs it into the cloud allowing reporting of each room’s utilisation data over a period of time.
avt mezzoCast can ensure that the client’s room reservation system accurately reflects the true occupancy status of the meeting room estate. Some organisations report that phantom or ghost meetings can account for over 25% of their total room reservations!
Through software integration with Office 365 and/or Microsoft Exchange (other reservation systems coming), mezzoCast will create, modify and/or delete room reservations allowing users to have a live and accurate view of the availability or otherwise of a room.
