Video conferencing technology has changed the way we work, learn and engage with those around us. As businesses continue to adopt video as a preferred method of communication, technology is evolving rapidly in tandem to deliver an even better user experience.

The latest technology for video conferencing utilizes three cameras in a single device, allowing participants to see a full 180° view of their environment. The three camera array offers various benefits to today’s modern workplace, including ensuring your remote workforce can collaborate with your in-office team efficiently, analyzing office space allocation and providing employees with high-quality interactions.


Remote workers feel involved

The rise of remote workers creates a need for high-quality video conferencing technology. Traditional devices provide a limited view of and often result in unnatural interactions due to limited or obstructed camera views.

In a recent article, Forbes discusses how to make the most of a virtual meeting and states, “being able to see each other not only forges stronger bonds; it helps people stay focused on the task at hand. When everyone is visible, the team leader can spot when someone drifts off and bring them back in to focus on the task at hand.”

With three cameras, users are able to have a 180° view of the room, which creates a natural viewing experience that mimics the human eye and provides an engaging format. A three camera system ensures all remote workers can communicate and share information effectively and comfortably with every participant.


Intelligent features

Newer devices that utilize multiple cameras deliver more benefits to an organization athan just connecting remote employees.

Nearly 70 percent of the global workforce works remotely at least once per week, which means empty offices, unused space and wasted energy. Offices need to be able to evaluate their footprint to ensure resources are properly allocated. New three camera systems, like PanaCast, are able to incorporate people detection technology that can scan an entire room to analyze what time of day the room is being utilized, as well as how much space employees are taking up in a room. This means businesses can gather critical data on conference room usage and meeting efficiency to make educated business decisions.


High quality

Quality video conferencing technology can make or break a virtual meeting. Mediocre tech can result in poor communication and misunderstandings among participants. Hosting a meeting using three cameras rather than one results in the best picture quality and creates a natural experience. Multiple HD-quality video cameras can also alleviate any fisheye distortions that are often seen in the unnatural stretching that can occur with single lens cameras. This distinction allows your workforce to focus on the content of the meeting rather than be distracted or interrupted by the quality of the video.

There is a multitude of benefits that stem from utilizing a multi-camera array, each of which should be considered when selecting the right conferencing system. While video conferencing wouldn’t be where it is today without the original single camera, technology has evolved to create a truly unique user experience that can only be felt using a device that integrates three high quality cameras.
