As any seasoned corporate desk jockey would know, video conferences are the most likely scenario for Murphy’s Law to rear its ugly head, be it wonky connections, defective audio or worse.
For businesses looking to nip that problem in the bud in a decisive fashion, the newly launched Jabra PanaCast 50 4K Video Bar System makes for an impressive option though it costs a whopping RM26,070.
The upgraded version of the PanaCast 50 launched in 2021, the upgraded version being released in Malaysia offers a set of touch controls integrated into a 10.1-inch tablet dubbed the Jabra PanaCast Control tablet to manage settings along with a slew of upgrades under the hood that include an embedded compute that is able to run Microsoft Teams or Zoom Rooms applications.
What is the Jabra PanaCast 50 Video Bar System?
In essence, the Jabra PanaCast 50 Video Bar System dials the concept of a video conferencing bar to 11 with the whole affair essentially an all-in-one video conferencing system complete with video and audio that can be deployed in a room for large video conferencing calls.
You get a trio of 13MP cameras that are angled to cover a full 180-degree swath around a room with AI stitching the whole affair together to form a panoramic 4K stream. Audio is kicked out by a quartet of speakers while 8 microphones are emplaced throughout the Jabra PanaCast 50 to ensure that every person can be heard in a room.
The AI in the Jabra PanaCast 50 Video Bar System is also able to intelligently zoom in on participants depending on the number of people in a call as well as a nifty Dynamic Composition mode where up to 4 participants in a video call each get a zoomed-in video feed of their faces so that everyone else sitting in on the call can get a better nuance of the body language of each participant.
To ensure clear audio and video, Jabra has slapped in seven Edge processors and a trio of Edge AI processors whose sole purpose is to combine the audio, video and any data feeds shared in a video conference into a crisp and clear whole. There’s also AI voice detection and full duplex tech to ensure that clear vocals can be heard on both sides of a call. The Jabra PanaCast 50 Video Bar System is also certified for both Zoom and MS Teams video calls too and also has on-device encryption for secure communications.
Some other helpful upgrades with the Jabra PanaCast 50 Video Bar System are an ultrasonic motion sensor that wakes the system up the moment someone enters the room for fast deployment. As added icing on the cake, the PanaCast 50 Video Bar System can even monitor air quality in a given room through a series of sensors too.
Needless to say, the Jabra PanaCast 50 Video Bar System doesn’t come cheap and is intended for major corporate deployments where secure, high quality video calls are a priority.
