Jabra has unveiled two new cameras in its PanaCast range: video bar Jabra PanaCast 50 (pictured above) and personal camera Jabra PanaCast 20 (pictured below). Jabra said the new devices combine immersive vision and video, audio and artificial intelligence.
Aurangzeb Khan, senior vice president of intelligent vision systems at Jabra, explained, “Extraordinary times call for extraordinary solutions and we believe the new Jabra PanaCast 50 and PanaCast 20 deliver just that. The time is now to start thinking about future-proofing offices, creating optimal collaboration circumstances for flexible hybrid workers and to ensure maximum productivity as your teams return. We invite businesses, organisations and institutions all around the world to experience audio and video like never before.”
The Jabra PanaCast 50 uses AI to detect active speakers and adjust the video frame. It includes three 13-megapixel cameras and uses video stitching technology to create an 180° field of view that covers the whole room. The device also features nine powerful Edge processors, an ultra-advanced system architecture that enables the intelligent video bar to carry out real-time integration of audio, video and data.
The Jabra PanaCast 20 delivers HDR video as well as personalised intelligent zoom, which frames the main user properly, regardless of their environment. It also uses automatic lighting correctionto optimise the user’s video stream regardless of the time of day or lighting. It uses AI that is managed on-device with Edge processing which minimises the risk of security breaches and increases speed, accuracy, and the overall experience. The device also has a built-in lens cover to prevent the camera being left “on” accidentally.
The Jabra PanaCast 50 is available from 15th June in black and grey, with a suggested retail price of £945. The Jabra PanaCast 20 will be available from 1st August in black, with a suggested retail price of £232.
