UnifiedCommunications is committed to delivering solutions that evolve with the ever-changing landscape of collaborative communications. In a world where effective collaboration is the key to success, the Jabra PanaCast 50 BYOD stands as a beacon of innovation and reliability, especially in small and medium meeting rooms.   

There’s power in simplicity and PanaCast 50 proves just that. How simple, you ask? Just plug and play – and start your meeting instantly. Read on to learn more!   


Streamlined Setup, Instant Connectivity! 

We talked to one of our Senior Device Strategists, Jacob Fischer, who has tested out the BYOD solution here at UnifiedCommunications:  

“The really cool and convenient thing about Jabra PanaCast 50 BYOD is that it is similar to connecting your laptop to a docking station. The display is going to show your duplicated laptop screen and the bar will be your audio device and camera.”   

Essentially, with the BYOD solution, you can experience a plug-and-play solution that minimizes downtime and maximizes productivity.   

“Your laptop drives the whole meeting. Simply connect via USB and you can join any video conferencing platform that supports external cameras like Teams or Zoom”, Jacob Fischer added.  

 Whether opting for a table stand, wall mount, or screen mount, organizations can effortlessly configure their setup to suit their unique space requirements. With minimal cabling and intuitive design, connecting laptops to the video bar becomes second nature, facilitating instant meetings with ease.  


A Visionary Perspective and Crystal Clear Audio 

Just like in the Teams/Zoom Rooms version of PanaCast 50, the BYOD system is equipped to provide a panoramic perspective that ensures no participant is left out of the frame.   

Surya Mohan, UC’s AV Design Engineer, adds this insight:  

"I love the latest generation of integrated camera/speaker bars. The Jabra PanaCast 50 is a beautiful piece of gear that performs as well as it looks.PanaCast 50 Video Conference Camera is engineered to be the world’s first 180° Panoramic-4K plug-and-play video conferencing solution. The user can be in full control, it can be adjusted to 90°, 120°, 140°, and 180° field of view. Powered by three 13-megapixel cameras, this innovative technology captures every detail with stunning clarity.”  

Jabra’s PanaCast 50 has built in AI for audio that boasts 8 beamforming microphones and 4 speakers. The AI technology helps with noise suppression, echo cancellation and voice detection, ensuring speakers are heard clearly and unwanted background noise is reduced. Effective communication for the win!

Empowering AI-Driven Experiences  

The Jabra PanaCast 50 leverages AI-driven features to elevate the meeting experience to new heights.  The AI based experiences include Intelligent Zoom, Virtual Director (Speaker Tracking) and Dynamic Composition, which delivers a close-up view of the four most recent speakers.  Virtual Boundary allows the device to include people within the room and exclude people outside who otherwise may have been visible through a glass wall or window.     

Ryan Herbst, UC’s VP and Chief Device Strategist elaborates on Panacast 50’s unique 180-degree field of view and AI:   

“The AI within allows the device to act as a whiteboard camera in supported applications even if the whiteboard is angled sharply away from the camera.  In addition to video, AI technology in Panacast 50 is good for reducing background noise, directing audio toward a current speaker, detecting human voices and balancing audio levels in real time.”
