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.
The end to the Southern Rail strikes is not looking imminent. Around 300,000 passengers use Southern services each day (many of whom are commuting into London). So we started to think about some of the positives of not travelling by train to work if you are one of the hundreds of thousands affected, which should hopefully reduce your stress levels.
The average office desk is home to 400 times more bacteria than in a toilet!
We all know that germs (bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms) can be picked up anywhere and everywhere. They spread in all sorts of ways, but particularly via invisible droplets when people near to you talk, cough and sneeze. At this time of year when cold and flu viruses are particularly prevalent, working at home away from public transport and a shared desk can be really good for your health!
More time at home with your family
The number of workers who commute daily for two hours or more has increased by a third in five years, a study revealed. The increase has mostly been driven by soaring house prices and stagnant wages. If you can work from home or can move closer to your place of work, you should have more quality time with your friends or family.
Late to rise early to bed
If you can work at home – it goes without saying – you can have an early night and a lie-in in the morning.
If it takes you hours to get to work and back each day, then you could be spending that time being more productive doing work.
You might want to use your free two hours getting fitter by visiting the gym, going for a walk, or doing an exercise class.
Save money on coffee and pastries
Londoners spend around a whopping £2,000 every year on those ‘must have’ items for their journeys such as coffee, pastries and crisps, according to research from AMEX. Even if you cut your spending down by 50% – think what you could buy with the money you save.
Making the most of conference calls
These days, more and more of us are working with remote colleagues, clients, suppliers and partners. With the daily commute for some of us in meltdown, now is a great time to make more of online conferencing tools and facilities such as GoToMeeting, Skype for Business and Zoom.
Affordable Meeting Rooms
And there’s good news for the Office end of the call; a good quality video meeting system for a small/medium room can be set up for less than £3,000 (less if you already have a large screen display) which will be returned in increased productivity in no time (especially if the strikes continue!)

"More than 2500 organisations in 38+ countries are using the PanaCast daily to improve their communication and productivity.
Over 200 universities are now adopting the PanaCast for lecture capture and huddle room deployments."
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.”
ScobleFuturist / Rackspace
“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.”
Sr. Project Manager of IT & Digital Services / University of Western Sydney
“… a great improvement over standard video chat experiences.” Read article
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.”
