Jabra Now Shipping PanaCast 50 Video Bar System
Jabra is shipping its PanaCast 50 Video Bar System leveraging the new Microsoft device ecosystem platform, as announced on the Microsoft site here. Microsoft collaborated with Jabra to optimize the platform to leverage Microsoft Teams Rooms for Android as the first industry market solution.
The Microsoft device ecosystem platform brings together the best of Microsoft and Android, tailored for shared spaces and optimized for Teams devices. Built on the Android Open Source Project (AOSP), the platform delivers the security, reliability, management and deployment that Microsoft is known for, along with the diversity of hardware and software support that comes with Android. It is designed for innovation — with the extensibility and customization that manufacturers need to deliver innovative products with both hardware and software extensions.
The Jabra PanaCast 50 Video Bar System is an integrated solution. It includes a Qualcomm Technologies Inc. state-of-the-art system-on-chip (SoC) for IoT running Android, which will be upgradable to the new Microsoft OS. It also includes other SoCs, as well, speakers, microphones, video cameras, with network and display interfaces for easy deployment. The solution comes with a 10.1″ touch controller to manage the room experience. The system natively and securely runs Microsoft Teams Rooms on Android.
With a hardware-based root of trust and attestation, built on Microsoft’s PKI cryptography and Qualcomm Trusted Execution Environment, the platform delivers security and tamper resistance with attestation by enabling secure identification of the device and its configuration. This is built with the advantage of the Qualcomm QC8250 SoC for IoT supporting multiple concurrent instances of VPU-based hardware offload, with up to 8K video encoding and decoding. The Qualcomm QCS8250 SoC also allows for up to 64-megapixel video capture for exceptional high-definition videos.
Microsoft backs security — with the government-grade secure development environment, code analysis, threat detection and software updates customers can depend on for shared meeting spaces. Matching this, 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 is easy to install, manage and use with everything needed for video meetings embedded in the PanaCast Control for a one-touch start/join without requiring any additional devices, allowing simple, secure and scalable deployment and management in any small-medium sized rooms.
