When we begin the return to the office, how will we work together while maintaining social distancing? How will we collaborate even with colleagues who are physically present with us?
How will a group that needs to meet to discuss a project, share their thoughts and plans? If we just make calls over a conferencing platform to colleagues across the hall, we might just as well stay at home and reduce the risk of infection.
Until we have an effective vaccine, we will need to continue social distancing
One thing that may help is the ability to share content wirelessly so that we can be in the same physical space (while maintaining a proper distance), having a decent face-to-face discussion while sharing content on our mobile devices.
The Huddle Hub One (HHO) could help here because it does something unique in its class called re-broadcasting
So a group get together in a meeting room, a casual meeting area or anywhere within range of the corporate WiFi/LAN. They log in to an available HHO Smart Room (a virtual meeting room) and then start sharing content from their laptop, tablet or smartphone. Content can be shared by one participant at a time or multiple participants can share content simultaneously. Either way, the currently shared content will be streamed back – re-broadcasted – to each logged-in mobile display.
It’s not mandatory but, if there’s an available large format display in the meeting space, this can also be used to show the shared content.
What About the (Remote) Workers? If remote colleagues need to join, any logged-in device can be used to establish the call using the video service-of-choice and the far end will be seen on every device sharing in the Smart Room.
Wireless Professional Video Calls: There is even an HHO model that can be installed in the meeting room and which will allow participants to conference wirelessly using the installed professional AV. So a participant can launch a video call from their mobile device but utilise the installed room camera, audio sub-system, local large format display etc. delivering a high-quality professional collaboration session which can still be viewed simultaneously by any local participant on their own mobile device if they wish.

PanaCast 2 is the world’s first Panoramic 180° 4K plug-and-play video camera system. Now Altia Systems has worked with Intel® to launch PanaCast Whiteboard, a computer vision software that detects content on an existing whiteboard and displays it as an individual screen within a video conference. The software automatically improves image quality and corrects distortion to produce a clear whiteboard image, enhancing the video collaboration experience for remote participants in various business and education settings.

This week, I was delighted to be asked by the Royal Society of Medicine in central London to demonstrate the PanaCast 2 camera system with Intelligent Zoom.
The Technology Showcase Day was organised by Kevin McLoughlin, Audio Visual Manager at the Royal Society of Medicine, who invited 13 companies to demonstrate and present their emerging, innovative technologies. Presentations included new solutions in virtual reality, digital signage, lecture capture and new products aimed at the burgeoning huddle room market including audio, video and innovative furniture designs.
The audience included representatives and senior stakeholders from the Royal Society of Medicine itself plus a number of London-area universities including Greenwich, Hertfordshire and the London College of Fashion.
I received great feedback following my presentation and significant interest in the PanaCast 2 camera system and its ground-breaking features and benefits.

The PanaCast2 – a video camera suitable for all locations!
These days it seems that dispersed team working or virtual teams are becoming commonplace, as organisations look for varied ways to become more competitive and find new ways to provide flexible working for their employees. As with anything there are advantages and disadvantages.
Enabling people to communicate successfully at meetings when in different locations and time zones can be challenging.
If you’ve ever been part of a video conference call at work, involving lots of colleagues in different locations and time zones, then please watch this short video. It will all seem very familiar to you!
Enjoyable as the video is…. you will know how frustrating a conference call like this can be. But it doesn’t have to be like this!

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.”
