Creating the first panoramic video conferencing camera array
We believe in enhancing human connections. It fuels our passion to create innovative products which help people connect naturally and easily.
A single camera limits our field of view. Our eyes, on the other hand, give us a panoramic perspective. And in live discussions, we instinctively use this panoramic view to get context, become comfortable and then choose what to focus on, what to say and when and how to say it. With PanaCast, we give you that immersive experience with a live 180° view – at any time and anywhere in our connected world.
PanaCast is the world’s first Panoramic-4K Plug-and-Play USB video camera system which delivers a natural human perspective through an ultra-wide 180º wide, 54º tall field-of-view.
Several key innovations in Imaging Science, Computer Vision, Electronic System architecture and Semiconductor Design and Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled us to make three cameras work as one in the PanaCast 2 device.
A core innovation in PanaCast 2 is the dynamic stitching algorithm which creates a globally-optimized, pixel-accurate stitching of the video streams from adjacent cameras in real time with an ultra low latency of 5 ms for the stitching process achieved with the PanaCast Vision Processor (PVP) built into the PanaCast 2 device. The PVP also mathematically renders each pixel to a cylindrical surface to produce a natural looking visual perspective. There are eight additional processors for specific pipeline tasks in the PanaCast 2 device.
