Jabra Unleashes PanaCast

Jabra‘s new PanaCast real-time immersive intelligent vision system offers 180-degree panoramic vision and advanced AI to deliver wall-to-wall video, audio and data in huddle rooms and spaces.

The PanaCast announcement follows Jabra parent GN Audio’s recent acquisition of Altia Systems, allowing GN to expand into plug-and-play audiovisual communications products and services. The PanaCast video collaboration device includes three 13-megapixel cameras, working together as one via core technology embedded in the built-in vision processor.

The panoramic video enables everyone to participate equally, fostering healthy discussion and true collaboration — despite not being in the same room, according to Jabra.

Aurangzeb Khan, Jabra’s senior vice president, tells us PanaCast offers its partners a “unique, patented video collaboration solution.”

“We fully expect our partner ecosystem to embrace the Jabra PanaCast line as it offers an additional revenue stream with a technologically superior video solution that works seamlessly with audio, solving dreaded compatibility issues that many organizations face,” he said. “This technology not only means more impactful meetings, but also has the benefit of enabling our partners to discuss deeper topics, like real estate management as Jabra PanaCast captures the entire meeting space and allows for more efficient meeting room setups. It offers a huge return on investment for organizations that are challenged by the combination of rising real estate costs and expanding work forces.”

Explosive Growth Expected for Global UCaaS

When providers have said the market for UCaaS is still in its infancy, they weren’t kidding. The global UCaaS market is expected to skyrocket from $4.3 billion last year to more than $17 billion by 2024, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of almost 25.7 percent.

That’s according to a new report by Mordor Intelligence. The market is being driven by the need for easy-to-maintain network systems that allow effective communication across end-user industries, including retail, health care and manufacturing.

Ease of adopting cloud technology has further boosted the adoption of video conferencing, which is driving the adoption of cloud services for various business needs. The availability of cloud-based systems is easing the adoption of UCaaS by health care providers.

The growing adoption of BYOD and other mobility solutions also has facilitated the adoption of UCaaS solutions. In addition, companies are introducing new products or services to leverage the growing demand for UCaaS.

Competitive rivalry is high due to the presence of some major players like Microsoft, 8×8, Fuze, Verizon and more. These companies are able to gain a competitive advantage over the other players due to their ability to bring about innovations by investing heavily in research and development, according to the report. Companies entering into strategic partnerships and M&A have gained a substantial share of the market.
