Jabra has confirmed that the Jabra PanaCast 20 is now shipping. Previously announced in April, the premium video conferencing device that utilizes cutting-edge technology to deliver the next generation of intelligent, secure and portable video collaboration.
The plug-and-play PanaCast 20 camera offers a personal video conferencing experience, completely reinvented for today’s hybrid world.
As businesses over the world adjust to hybrid working styles, video is essential and traditional video tools are no longer fit for purpose.
The PanaCast 20 is designed to clip to any monitor, and to allow businesses and employees to have total confidence that no matter what or where someone is presenting the quality will always be exceptional.
Using advanced processors, powerful onboard AI and a premium 13-megapixel camera, the Jabra PanaCast 20 delivers a real-time 4K Ultra-HD image that’s sharp and crystal-clear, with virtually no latency.
Jabra’s AI-driven Intelligent Zoom automatically follows the user’s movements to intuitively adjust framing in real-time. This ensures that the user is always in the centre of the frame while also allowing for more natural movement, making it feel like everyone is in the same room.
The PanaCast 20 is engineered to adapt to almost any lighting. By using Intelligent Lighting Optimization, Jabra analyses the environment and automatically adjusts the image to enhance video quality, including those situations where lighting is poor.
The PanaCast 20 also features Picture in Picture mode – a technology that uses powerful Edge AI processing to combine two real-time video streams into one. It displays the second stream in an integrated window with the main image. This mode works with any UC platform, even if dual-stream devices aren’t supported.
Remote working as the default meant that collaboration needed to be reinvented, but this introduced new security challenges with unsuspecting employees leaving businesses vulnerable to threats. With the PanaCast 20, security isn’t an issue.
The intelligent personal camera is engineered for data security because the onboard AI processor drives all the features of the device. As a result, all actions take place on the device itself, significantly reducing the risk of a data breach.
At the same time, the PanaCast 20 also features an integrated privacy cover that can be positioned over the camera lens, giving the user total control over when they want to be seen – or not.
The Jabra PanaCast 20 works with all leading UC platform forms and users of the personal camera will also be able to partner the device with other Jabra audio solutions such as the Jabra Evolve2 65 headphones and Speak 750. Regular software updates will also be available throughout the product lifespan ensuring maximum ROI.
“Over the last year and a half, the world has had to adapt to hybrid working styles and video conferencing has been the glue that holds teams together. Getting it right is essential when it comes to everything from building professional relationships to staying productive,” said Aurangzeb Khan, Senior Vice President of Intelligent Vision Systems at Jabra.
“Quality should never be compromised no matter where you are and this is why we have created the Jabra PanaCast 20. The product is designed to set a new standard when it comes to video collaboration and help to overcome the video fatigue that we’ve all succumbed to over the last 18 months.”
The Jabra PanaCast 20 is now available in Black, and at a recommended retail price of SGD$464.
