How to create the video conferencing performance of a lifetime.

Lights. Camera. Audio.

It’s no secret that companies need to supply employees with technology that will help them move between hybrid environments without losing the quality of audio or video calls. But what is still a little bit of a secret is how to achieve the most life-like experience virtually.

Lucky for you, we have the perfect remedy for attaining inclusive and engaging meetings that let participants be the stars of the call! We’ve partnered with Jabra, specialists in world-leading audio and video devices, to reveal their different video conferencing options and how they impact communication experiences in hybrid environments.

Lights.

Participants want to look and feel good on camera, and it’s often the room lighting that can leave them looking like they are sitting in a cave. Jabra has solved this problem by introducing an AI-based Intelligent Lighting Optimization into its PanaCast 50 and PanaCast 20 video conferencing cameras that analyses the environment and automatically adjusts your image in real-time to enhance the video quality. Now any light is good light!

Camera.

We all want a little more space between us nowadays, and Jabra has impressed us with their 180-degree field of view (FOV) cameras that capture E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G. The 13-megapixel 4K cameras in the PanaCast 50 and PanaCast devices produce a stunning 4K Ultra-HD video that ensures everyone in the room is in the frame and it even picks up on facial micro-expressions and body language. That means teams no longer have to squeeze together, making environments more inclusive, effective and safer for people to use.

For the PanaCast 20, as it is designed for individual use, 180 degrees FOV isn’t always appropriate. However, it still has a tracking feature to make sure you (the star of the show!) is front and centre at all times.

Audio.

Verbal cues are integral to face-to-face conversations. Without these, participants will lose the natural flow of a conversation, often resulting in missed information and people talking over one another. Jabra specialises in audio engineering and their expertise is highly apparent in their products.

Integrating microphones into their video camera solutions Jabra uses advanced beamforming technology to maximise the signal-to-noise ratio for crystal-clear voices, allowing everyone to contribute to the discussion in real-time from anywhere in the room.

 

Jabra also has a range of UC certified enterprise headsets and speakerphones to support its camera solutions that you can buy separately.

 

The virtual director.

Jabra has taken its camera engineering to the next level by putting inclusivity at the forefront of its products via Powerful AI features. The technology continuously scans and adjusts the picture in real-time to enable fluid virtual experiences that capture human reactions automatically.  The intelligent zoom and speaker recognition allow participants to work naturally, whilst the camera and audio automatically adjust to frame moving or active speaking participants.

Now you can experience more immersive, natural video collaboration without staying in one spot!

 

The plot.

For meetings to be a success, they need to start quickly and have presentation sharing at the touch of a button. The Jabra PanaCast 50 is Microsoft Teams and MTR certified, so all its features mentioned here work perfectly with the Teams features. However, presentations or collaboration sessions sometimes need some enhanced effects, so the plot thickens.

Enter the Jabra PeopleCount, Picture-in-Picture and whiteboarding features!

Although Covid-19 restrictions are legally lifted, many corporations continue to keep some advisables in place for the health and safety of their teams. Jabra has integrated a PeopleCount feature into its cameras, allowing companies to access live data monitored through wide-angle cameras. This practical feature will help ensure safety guidelines are met as well as useful occupancy analytics to help understand justify ROI.

By offering participants access to additional features, speakers can add depth to their presentation by combining two real-time video streams into one – even if the UC platform doesn’t support dual-stream devices. The Picture-in-Picture mode allows presenters to share a close-up feed as your main image while presenting in a smaller window.

The whiteboard streaming technology lets in-room participants collaborate with remote workers via a real-time live stream, letting everyone on the call see it even though they aren’t in the room.

The cast

Engineered for remote workers, the PanaCast 20 is for those who want a professional video conferencing camera that can go on the move with them.

Compact, lightweight and stylish. The PanaCast 20 easily slots over the top of any screen and comes in a neat carry case, making it highly portable. For added privacy, PanaCast 20 features an integrated privacy cover to give you total control over the camera lens.

Jabra PanaCast – Huddle spaces and small to medium meeting rooms (the flexible one)

The most flexible camera of them all, PanaCast is comfortable being used on an individual’s desk or within small to medium meeting rooms. Its design lets it be mounted in one of three ways: over a laptop screen, on a table mount, or wall-mounted.

PanaCast features three 13-megapixel cameras that use dynamic real-time stitching technology for whiteboarding. You can easily toggle together via a simple and free setup in the Jabra Vision app, making PanaCast a flexible and agile content sharing camera.
