AVNation’s Brian Heidgerken is in Las Vegas for InfoComm 2022. Here, he’s back with Aurangzeb Khan, Senior Vice President and Inventor at Jabra. Brian and Aurangzeb are happy to see InfoComm returned to its former glory now that they’re back in person, but it’s also been an accelerated two years for innovation—showing everyone just how important quality audio and video can be.
To make a good impression with coworkers while working remotely, Aurangzeb explains the benefits of Jabra’s PanaCast 20. It’s a video conferencing camera with state-of-the-art AI built in. However, when meeting participants are in a room with others, their pixel real estate goes down. The solution for that is dynamic composition, available using the 3-camera PanaCast 50. While showing everyone the full 180-degree view of the meeting room, this device also has three independent cameras that generate the four most active participants and deliver a composite view that gives them more prominent pixel real estate.
For Jabra, the core idea is that great technology fades into the background, quietly empowering workers to get the job done. His team loves technology, but most consumers using this technology are at the meeting to work and collaborate, not to play around with the products, no matter how high-end.
Jabra also offers products like the Speak 710, an omnidirectional microphone that delivers 360-degree coverage. It’s included in the Meet Anywhere+ bundle, a set of tools for remote and traveling workers that enables users to bring efficient meeting spaces with them wherever they go. Some larger companies have even sent these bundles out to entire teams to bring meeting equality to all. Jabra’s tools compensate for the different backgrounds, lighting, and locations of everyone involved.
