One of the lasting effects of the COVID-19 pandemic will be a transformation of the way we work. After a year out of the office, it's likely that many businesses will start to be a bit more flexible when it comes to home-working. What's more, travelling long distances for in-person meetings will probably become less common; after all, we've had a year to get used to Teams meetings instead!

As such, even when offices reopen, remote meetings will still be a common occurrence. Meeting rooms will no longer be something reserved for big corporations. In an increasingly digital world, meeting rooms now make sense financially even for small-to-medium-sized businesses.

If the idea of setting up a remote meeting room sounds complicated, not to worry. We've got a handy all-in-one bundle that includes everything you need to get started. You provide the room- we'll provide the rest!

 

Jabra PanaCast

Jabra PanaCast

One of the biggest issues with creating a meeting room is ensuring everyone can be clearly seen on camera. While most modern laptops come with a built-in webcam, these are only intended for personal use. Even standalone webcams typically only offer about 120-degrees of coverage- so anyone outside of this will be cut out of frame.

The Jabra PanaCast has been specially designed to provide the maximum amount of coverage: a full 180 degrees. This ensures that everyone taking part in the meeting is clearly on screen. And with three 13-megapixel cameras, it provides 4k video quality for the ultimate in clarity. It also includes an intelligent zoom function to make the most of screen space. When there are fewer people on a call, the PanaCast will automatically crop the video to only focus on the participants.

That's the camera sorted- but what about sound? Again, a laptop will be fine for one person, but a professional meeting room needs a solution that can accommodate a lot more people. Not only does the audio from the call need to be loud and clear, but you'll also need a microphone that's capable of picking up multiple people. Luckily, the Jabra Speak 710 offers both of these features in one unit. A Bluetooth conference speaker, it pairs up perfectly with the PanaCast. Suitable for up to six participants, you can even connect an additional Speak 710 for extended coverage.

 

Accessories

The Jabra Meeting Room in a Box bundle also includes several handy accessories that make the PanaCast that much easier to use within your meeting room. With both a wall mount and table stand, you can use the camera wherever is most convenient for you. Having the table stand makes it easier to use with a laptop, while the wall mount is a smart choice if you already have a wall-fitted screen to use for conference calls. It's easy to remove the PanaCast from either mount, so you can also use it for one-to-one calls as well. However you want to use it, you've got plenty of reach thanks to the included 1.8m USB cable!

So, whether you use Microsoft Teams, Zoom, or any other video conferencing software, this bundle contains everything you need to set up your conferencing room. Whatever the future holds for home-working and virtual meetings, you can rest assured that your business will be prepared for any eventuality.
