Jabra PanaCast with avt mezzoCast makes AV Awards 2019 Finals!

August 20, 2019

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.

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.”

    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.”
