The stunning PanaCast 2s has its European début in Amsterdam this week at ISE 2017

February 8, 2017

We are very excited to announce that the World’s First Software-Defined 7.4 Megapixel 180° Video Camera and winner of the CES 2017 Innovation Award will be on show at ISE 2017 in Amsterdam this week, February 7-10

PanaCast 2s is a powerful software-defined video camera that enhances and extends the functionality of the PanaCast 2 panoramic camera. It delivers 7.4 Megapixel panoramic video with real-time video stitching, delivering a 180º wide by 54º tall field of view, with 5120 x 1440 pixels per frame, at 30 frames per second, with less than one frame latency.

The PanaCast 2s system comprises a PanaCast 2 device and the PanaCast Computer Vision Engine (PCVE) software – which contains the first real-time OpenCL video stitching pipeline and runs on standard processors – creates a scalable software-defined panoramic system.

The scalable software-defined architecture enables PanaCast 2s to support a wide variety of deep learning applications as well as edge analytics and edge computing. It allows PanaCast 2s to deliver 78% higher resolution and produces a natural-looking video stream without scale distortion. The 7.4 Megapixels enables 5x lossless digital zoom (i.e., you can zoom in 5x digitally without any loss of resolution).

The PanaCast 2s will be available in Q1 2017.

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.”

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

  • “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.”
