Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2015: Altia Demonstrates Plug and Play 4K Panoramic Video Camera

Altia Systems® – a Gartner® Inc. 2015 Cool Vendor in Unified Communications – today announced from the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2015 in Barcelona, Spain, that it is demonstrating its PanaCast® 2 video camera’s seamless operation with popular collaboration services at booth (ET9) in the Emerging Technologies Pavilion. PanaCast® is the world’s first Panoramic-4K Plug-and-Play USB video camera.

PanaCast® 2 is transforming the way people engage and connect electronically. It gives users an ultra-wide natural looking field-of-view with unparalleled visual clarity that they can interact with and control immediately and directly. The camera delivers a 180º wide by 54º tall field-of-view with 3840X1080 pixels per frame. Users can select any field-of-view they need, immediately and directly, up to 180º, with full resolution available always.

The PanaCast® 2 camera works plug-and-play with popular collaboration services such as Microsoft® Skype® for Business, Skype®, Cisco® WebEx®, Google Hangouts®, Citrix® GoToMeeting®, Vidyo® and Zoom®, without requiring any driver or software installs. It also works in concert with Altia Systems’ PanaCast® Experience software which is integrated with collaboration platforms like Microsoft® Skype® for Business and Intel Unite®. With PanaCast® Experience, meeting participants can virtually “look around” the room by navigating through the PanaCast® 2 video stream with familiar multi-touch gestures on their personal devices, to create their own views instantaneously from anywhere, and without disturbing other participants.

On Wednesday, Nov. 11, at 12:30pm local time, Altia Systems’ Co-founder, President and CEO Aurangzeb Khan will speak in the Emerging Technologies Theater on the topic of “Immersive Panoramic Video Makes Web Collaboration More Productive.”
