What size room is Jabra PanaCast 50 designed for?

Jabra confirmed that the PanaCast 50 is shipping and is certified for Microsoft Teams and Zoom rooms on June 23, 2021. Engineered to be the world’s first new-normal-ready intelligent video bar, the PanaCast 50 reinvents meeting room video, audio, and intelligence for the ‘new normal’ workspace. The Jabra PanaCast 50 is available in Black or Grey.

Professional Grade Audio

The PanaCast 50 features eight professional-grade microphones and an array of four powerful Jabra-engineered speakers, two 50mm woofers, and two 20mm tweeters. Beamforming mics and full-duplex audio allow you to hear and be heard, naturally. Meetings flow better when everyone can communicate clearly. Jabra’s advanced beamforming technology maximizes the signal-to-noise ratio for crystal-clear voices, anywhere in the room. 

And with full-duplex technology, everyone can contribute to the conversation in real-time. So those verbal cues that are so integral to face-to-face conversations will never go unheard.

Outstanding 180° Video 

In addition to Jabra’s world-leading audio, Jabra’s gone all-in on inclusive video that keeps everyone in the frame. The three 13-megapixel cameras, mounted in a high-precision, multi-camera array, cover every part of the room. Their patented real-time video stitching technology intelligently decides exactly the right point to live-stitch the three feeds together, creating a smooth, 180° view in high-definition Panoramic-4K. That means nobody is squeezed together, distorted, or missing from the picture. Jabra PanaCast 50 puts inclusive meetings back on the table, safely.

Safety Capacity & Room Usage Insights 

If your organization has implemented socially distanced meetings, how do you know if your staff is sticking to the guidelines? Jabra’s intuitive software anonymously counts heads and provides notifications when your customized guidelines are being breached. Their unique 180° data stream remains constantly focused on the entire room, delivering real-time people count data, even when the video stream is zoomed in. Visual data in Jabra Xpress allows you to analyze your previous meeting history, and take data-driven action accordingly. This functionality doesn’t require a computer connection so it’ll capture impromptu meetings as well.  

Whiteboard Streaming 

Jabra’s whiteboard streaming technology lets you live stream your whiteboard content. This supports meeting equity and allows in-room and remote participants to see the whiteboard. This is a built-in feature that does not require a secondary content camera.  

The recommended size of the whiteboard should be between 1.5-2.7 meters in width (5-9 feet), however, whiteboards measuring between 1-3 meters in width (3-10 feet) are supported.  

It is recommended that the whiteboard should be positioned within 3.6 meters (12 feet) of the Jabra PanaCast 50, and no closer than 1.5 meters (5 feet). The optimal viewing range is 3 meters (9 feet). 

Before a whiteboard can be shared in a video conference, a whiteboard view must be set up using Jabra Direct.

Optional Remote Control 

The optional Remote Control makes it easier to control your meetings without having to leave your seat. You can access the presets, whiteboard stream, pan-tilt-zoom, mute, adjust volume, and start/end meetings all through the PanaCast 50 Remote Control available in black or grey.  

Simple Installation 

There are only two cables, AC Power and USB so set up is simple. The Jabra PanaCast 50 supports three different installation options to suit every room setup. You can choose from the Wall Mount in black or grey, Table Stand in black or grey, and Screen Mount (VESA). The Wall Mount hardware is included with the purchase of the PanaCast 50. The Table Stand and Screen Mount are sold separately.
