Jabra, a leader in personal sound and hybrid work solutions, announces today at InfoComm 2023, new AI-powered features for its PanaCast 50 and PanaCast 50 Room System.
Hybrid meetings are top of mind for businesses, with Jabra research revealing that 80 percent of all meetings globally are either fully virtual or hybrid. So, it is important that employees get the most out of their meetings, regardless of where they are.
To address this, in collaboration with Microsoft, Jabra introduces updates to its PanaCast 50 video bar, including Microsoft IntelliFrame with multiple video streams, as well as face and voice recognition functionality. These features aid Microsoft’s next-generation AI tools, including intelligent meeting recap in Teams Premium to revolutionize meeting experiences.
As organizations strive to increase productivity, Jabra’s collaboration with Microsoft unlocks an era of inclusive and dynamic communication.
The PanaCast 50 will be one of the first intelligent front-of-the-room Teams Rooms on Windows video bar to enable Microsoft IntelliFrame with multiple video streams. Additionally, with Teams’ voice recognition capabilities, the PanaCast 50 allows in-room participants to maintain their identity in the meeting transcript, aiding AI-based productivity tools.
With intelligent recap in Teams Premium, you get automatically generated meeting notes, recommended tasks and personalized highlights to help you get the information most important to you, even if you miss the meeting.
Meanwhile, Microsoft IntelliFrame gives each in-room participant a dedicated camera view, providing a more inclusive remote experience and providing an optimized front row experience in room-to-room meetings.
Both features play a key role in helping employees to have more productive meetings, get up to speed on focus topics, organize key discussion points, and summarize actions so that the entire group understands the next steps.
The new multiple video stream functionality enables remote users in the Teams meeting to have a better view of who is in the meeting room with three video streams: the first stream is the current speaker, the second stream is for the previous speaker, and the third stream is the full panoramic room view of the meeting room or space, so no individual is excluded.
The upcoming face recognition functionality allows in-room participants – upon authorization with individual enrollment – to display their names to remote users and populate the meeting room roster.
Voice recognition functionality – upon individual enrollment – enables in-room participants to maintain their identify in the meeting transcript, enabling more precise intelligent recaps for users with a Teams Premium license.
The system comes equipped with the Jabra Intelligent Meeting Space. The features allow customers to set a meeting room or space virtual boundary with PanaCast 50, so people within the defined space are included, whereas people outside of the boundary are not. The feature allows PanaCast50 to exclude people who are visible through glass walls and are not part of the meeting.
Jabra looks to bring the same level of innovation into the device management side of its collaboration solution space. With IT managers and partners, the task of managing their installed devices is a vital success factor and Jabra PanaCast customers are no different.
Jabra’s intelligent meeting room solutions require a management platform that takes full advantage of all the capabilities on offer while ensuring we reduce the time and effort spent managing them.
This reimagined management platform is planned for wider availability by the end of the year.
