New Jabra Panacast 50 Video Bar System Hosts MS Teams and Zoom Apps Natively (Without a Room PC!)
Jabra just debuted a new version of the PanaCast 50 dubbed the PanaCast 50 Video Bar System at ISE 2023; and, because it has Android embedded, it hosts the Microsoft Teams and Zoom Room clients natively! The Jabra PanaCast 50 Video Bar System includes an integrated video bar with speakers, microphones, video camera and Android UC processing power as well as a 10.1” high-resolution Touch Controller to control the meeting room experience. This system delivers the core UC capabilities required for a meeting with no need for a dedicated PC and minimal cabling.
The complete portfolio delivers flexible deployment options to bring the best collaboration experience to users. Businesses can choose a bring-your-own-device (BYOD) solution with PanaCast 50 or a dedicated Unified Communication (UC) solution on Windows through the PanaCast 50 Room System with Lenovo and Crestron. It works with Microsoft Teams Rooms or Zoom Rooms and enables inclusivity and productivity no matter where employees are working from.
The PanaCast 50 Video Bar System offers the same user experience as the two other solutions in the portfolio. It features full-room coverage with its unique 180° field of view Panoramic-4K multi-camera array, which uniquely delivers true-to-life representation of the people in the room. It also has eight professional-grade microphones with voice detection and intelligent algorithms that automatically identify and remove residual echoes and static noise, as well as an array of four powerful speakers in a zero-vibration stereo setup. Meanwhile, its Intelligent Meeting Room Experiences, which include the Virtual Director, Intelligent Zoom and Dynamic Composition, provide the best experience for remote participants. It can deliver individual close-up tiles of the four most recent speakers and a simultaneous panoramic view of the meeting room.
The PanaCast 50 Video Bar System is designed to adapt to the evolving UC experiences and hybrid workplace needs with its AI-powered software-defined platform. It comes with enterprise-grade security, with encryption on the device through BT, wired ethernet, and Wi-fi (WPA-2 personal and enterprise). The solution also meets Microsoft Teams Rooms and Zoom Rooms’ strict security requirements.
Above all, it is easy to install, manage and use, including everything needed for video meetings embedded in the PanaCast Control for a one-touch start/join without requiring any additional devices. This allows for simple, secure, and scalable deployment and management in any small-medium sized rooms.
