Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that all webcams are the same.
This Danish-designed webcam is in a different league. As soon as you open the box, you feel it is a sturdy metal design.
It comes in jet black and attaches to the top of your screen or laptop screen. You can purchase an additional table stand if needed.
It’s also tiny and comes with a travel bag for the road warriors among us.
The device is equipped with a USB-C port and includes a USB-C to USB-A cable. So you may need to purchase a USB-C to USB-C cable depending on your setup.
It has a 13 megapixel camera, which allows you to capture 4K quality videos. A built-in privacy screen can be pulled over the camera when not in use.
You can set the camera to 4K Ultra-HD, 1080p, or 720p resolutions, all at 30 frames per second (fps).
Nowadays, artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly used in live streams and video conferences. For example, automatically blurring your background when working from home. However, most of this AI processing is done on your computer or in the cloud.
The PanaCast 20 is different, it uses AI, but it’s on a chip inside the webcam itself. This means that the raw images are not uploaded to the cloud and then processed before even entering your computer or uploading to the cloud.
AI can intelligently optimize light levels or even continuously scan and adjust zoom, so you’re always in the center of the frame.
At 720p resolution, you can zoom 3x losslessly.
The picture-in-picture mode of the device is something unique. It allows you to share a close-up as the main image while still presenting it in a smaller window. This is possible thanks to advanced chips and integrated processors. They combine two real-time video streams into one.
Three microphones are integrated (which is not the case with all webcams).
Support is included for all major UC platforms, and is certified for Zoom and Microsoft Teams environments. We used it without any problems with Google Meet. Plus, picture-in-picture mode works with any video platform, even if they don’t support dual-stream devices.
You can feel confident with the Jabra PanaCast 20. It’s a premium webcam built to the highest standards, with advanced AI and excellent video quality.
