Your Conference Rooms with this Intelligent Camera

Unlike most video conferencing, or web-cameras PanaCast 2® delivers an 180º wide by 54º tall panoramic video stream and high-fidelity stereo audio.
With its ultra-wide field of view and Panoramic-4K resolution, PanaCast 2® delivers exceptionally clear video with a natural human visual perspective delivered in real-time.
The PanaCast 2® camera works by blending three 4K resolution images in real time into a single 180-degree image.
And it’s easy to use thanks to the plug and play USB interface. There is no need to call the IT department, just plug it in and you are good to go in your conference room or huddlespace.
The PanaCast 2® also features “Intelligent Zoom” functionality that automatically detects the number of people in the room, adjusting the field of view to zoom in or out as needed. Thanks to the 4K resolution of the cameras, that zoom is lossless maintaining the highest video quality possible. Watch the video below to see the “Intelligent Zoom” functionality in action.
Because of its diminutive size, the PanaCast 2® is truly a go anywhere camera and not limited to a huddlespace or a conference room.
