Jabra PanaCast has been selected by Zoom Video Communications as the video solution for its new telepresence capability Zoom Rooms Speaker Switching. The Jabra Panacast was selected as the only enterprise-grade camera with the advanced functionality needed to complete the Zoom Rooms experience.

 

Jabra PanaCast is certified for Zoom Rooms and was selected as being the first camera that could deliver three individual video streams in a single product. The three different camera angles will work in tandem with Zoom Rooms Speaker Switching along with three microphones that detect which side is speaking. Zoom Rooms logic will then switch to the proper camera angle based on the microphone activity. If no one is speaking, the service automatically applies the full preset mode so that all participants are clearly captured and displayed in their actual size. Jabra PanaCast’s small form factor allows the device to be placed at eye level, facilitating eye-to-eye contact that removes barriers between colleagues and enables them to communicate as though they’re in the same room.

 

 

Nick Yu, head of global services at Zoom, said: “With Jabra’s leading camera technology, we have developed a unique offering that delights users and IT departments by delivering a plug-and-play solution that takes the unnecessary complexity, cost and maintenance out of creating an immersive conferencing system.”

 

Jabra PanaCast is the world’s first intelligent panoramic video collaboration device with three 13-megapixel cameras that work together as one via core technology embedded in the built-in Jabra PanaCast vision processor. The multi-camera array solution offers a full 180-degree panoramic field of view, creating zero wasted space and eliminating the problem whereby two out of five participants are typically cut from a traditional camera’s view. The panoramic video and industry-first Intelligent Zoom autonomously and continuously optimise the field of view to include everyone in the conversation.
