At InfoComm 2019, Intel Unite demonstrated the advanced room and resource management capabilities of the Jabra PanaCast People Detection & Counting (PDC) Technology that is integrated into all PanaCast devices and made available to Intel Unite solution users via a PanaCast plugin. The PDC technology is also available as an API for 3rd party Intel Unite plugin developers.
The built-in PDC capability detects people up to 12 feet away and can simultaneously count up to 40 people. The advanced PDC technology is based on a new AI head detector CNN (Convolutional Neural Network) developed in cooperation with Intel. The technology is able to detect people even with partially visible heads and extends the range up to 40 feet. The CNN inference engine is highly optimized for Intel Core vPro processor-based PCs and the Panoramic-4K video of the PanaCast camera system. The technology, which is available through the PanaCast API built for the Windows operating system, can be used for large areas like classrooms, auditoriums and general gatherings.
Intelligent collaboration spaces and meetings can be achieved by combining Intel Unite solution, Intel Core vPro processor, and PanaCast AI head detector technology with 180-degree field of view video and real-time intelligent sensing capabilities.
The Intel Unite solution is a fast, simple, cost-efficient way to deliver a more secure, manageable, and high-quality collaboration experience. Whether working with the on-premise or cloud service version of the solution, Intel Unite solution works with existing technologies and provides controlled content sharing. It is easy to use, supports a range of devices and operating systems, as well as many business plugins, and requires minimal training for end users. Intel’s built-in security features and encryption technologies help ensure that content and file sharing occur only between approved meeting participants.
Here are the details.
