Conferences have always played an important role in business. They are used to educate, motivate, network and share ideas. Conferences are used by all businesses large and small. A small conference might be arranged in an in house meeting room with some staff joining in person and some joining remotely via video conference. Conferences can also be held on a large scale with hundreds or even thousands of delegates converging on a central spot globally or logging in remotely.
Technology, particularly the introduction of video conferencing is changing the way businesses operate. Video conferencing has the advantage of allowing key speakers and presenters to sit together in a huddle room while other delegates and attendees can log in from across the globe.
Jabra PanaCast has been developed with the huddle room and video conferencing in mind.
The Jabra PanaCast allows key attendees and speakers to attend in a huddle room and even sit in a socially distanced manner whilst all being picked up on the screen and video so that remote delegates are able to see everyone in the room.
The importance of the ‘huddle room’ is growing as it allows businesses to only pay for the travel and entertainment costs of a few key speakers, while delegates can log in from their usual office desk, another meeting room with colleagues in other global locations, or conveniently from home. Video conferencing catapulted to new heights in Spring 2020 when working from home became the ‘new normal’ and office workers subjected to 2m or 1m social distancing.
How does the Jabra PanaCast work?
The Jabra PanaCast is engineered to be the world’s first intelligent 180° Panoramic-4K plug-and-play video solution. It works by taking 3 images simultaneously and seamlessly integrating them into one 180° picture so that all delegates can been seen on the big screen and remotely. Shadowfax have created a demonstration video where you can watch the Jabra PanaCast in action combined with Microsoft Teams.

Why is Jabra PanaCast needed?
Other video solutions offer a limited field of view, leading to some meeting participants being excluded from the picture, and are therefore not suitable for small huddle rooms Since 55% of communication is body language, participant engagement on calls can be significantly improved by adding video As companies become more geographically dispersed, real estate costs are increasing, putting more emphasis on maximizing available space Unlock the power of Microsoft Teams with Teams Meetings Rooms
