Introducing a brand-new way to work
We live in a distributed, mobile world
Today we are more mobile than ever. We work in different locations. This places new requirements on our collaboration tools. Today's video solutions do not give you the full view and immersive experience of actually being there.
Multi-screen telepresence systems only work if you are in a dedicated telepresence room and cost around $300,000.
Now imagine a low cost solution that lets you remotely see everything in the meeting room on the devices you already own, from anywhere.
You can look to the left, look to the right, focus on any portion of the visual panorama in front of you, independent of anyone else, just as if you were there. You can view the speaker, you can view the boss, you can focus on the action items or block diagram on white board… just like you were there.
Experience the panoramic human view from anywhere as you play, live, learn and work.
Panacast - lets you be there from anywhere
PanaCast is a brand new technology that combines unique, patented hardware and state-of-the-art algorithms and software, all the way from optics, video capture and transport through rendering on client devices, enabling you to experience and individually control a pristine panoramic-HD video stream with a panoramic 200° field of view. It gives you the same control and human visual perspective of actually being in the meeting.
Simple controls allow you to pan across the panoramic video. You can zoom in on the speaker, or zoom in on the whiteboard, all without affecting the views of other remote participants. You control what you see, just as if you were there.
PanaCast is priced below $700 and comes with free apps that give meeting participants the full immersive experience on the devices they already own: mobile as well as PCs.
Stay tuned for product announcements and production shipment in Q1 2013.
