Posted by Wei Fei on
The All New Jabra Panacast with 180° Field of View Panoramic-4K Video Technology
Have you ever hopped into a huddle room and spent minutes playing bumper cars with your chairs trying to fit everyone in camera view? That’s because you’re probably using a webcam that is designed to fit 1 or 2 people in the camera frame. In order to fit everyone in frame with a traditional webcam, you would have to position the camera several feet back from the table in order to get a field of view wide enough to accommodate everyone. Until now…
Introducing the new Jabra PanaCast camera. A plug-and-play camera perfect for small meeting rooms.

What’s so great about the Jabra PanaCast Camera?
It is Inclusive:
The PanaCast camera is a USB plug-in-play device, designed to improve meetings in huddle rooms by using three 13-megapixel cameras and real-time video stitching to give a full 180-degree view. No blind spots, just a natural inclusive human perspective.
The three cameras combined with real-time video stitching provides a natural panoramic 4k video experience never seen before in the huddle room.
It is Intelligent:
Jabra’s Intelligent Zoom automatically includes everyone in the conversation, while Vivid HDR ensures a great video experience, even under widely varying lighting conditions. You will not have to call your IT department in order to adjust any settings or fiddle with the blinds and lights.
It is Easy:
Plug-and-play capability makes collaborating fast and easy; simply plug the Jabra PanaCast into your laptop or computer’s USB port, and you’re ready to start collaborating over video.
It Works with Everything:
The PanaCast by Jabra works with all leading video and audio-conferencing solutions and is fully certified for use with Microsoft Teams. You can be confident that your team can connect, whatever equipment they are using.

Installation Options / Accessories:
The PanaCast can be mounted under your tv or monitor using the Jabra PanaCast Wall Mount or using the Table Stand. Because the PanaCast uses three cameras to stitch a 4k 180-degree view, you do not require any space between the camera and the table or the person closest to the screen.
Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
What is a huddle room?
A huddle room is a small, easily accessible meeting space with informal seating for up to 8 people. The huddle room is ideally equipped with audio, video camera and screen capabilities in order to enable functional working meetings.
Is Jabra PanaCast compatible with USB-C laptops?
The cable delivered with the camera is USB-A but it will work with USB-C by using an adapter.
Does the camera work with Mac and PC?

Is PanaCast compatible with Microsoft Teams?

Is PanaCast supported in Jabra Direct?
Yes, it is fully supported.
What does the Jabra USB Hub offer?
The hub is a stationary in-room accessory which simplifies cable management and should ideally be fixed under the meeting room table. It provides all necessary inputs and outputs to streamline media management, so the end-user only needs to plug in one cable to start their meeting.
Can I use the camera without mounting it on the wall?
Yes. For more flexible installation, you can use the Jabra table stand accessory as an alternative to the wall mount.
Can I use the camera on the go?
PanaCast is designed to be used as part of the stationary AV equipment in small meeting rooms. However, you can place the camera on top of your laptop or PC screen and use it on the go, thanks to the built-in flexible mount.
Does the camera have built-in microphones?
Yes, the microphones can be activated through the Jabra Direct App. However, for optimum audio quality and speakerphone capabilities, we recommend using Jabra PanaCast together with the Jabra Speak 750.
