PanaCast 2 is a Plug-and-Play USB Panoramic-4k (3840 X 1080 pixels) camera system that delivers State-of-the-Art 180º panoramic video stream in real-time. It is priced at $995.00. PanaCast 2 addresses the two most significant roadblocks to implementation of a full AR (Augmented Reality) / VR (Virtual Reality) experience – visual distortion and latency – both of which degrade user experience.
PanaCast 2 uses multiple miniaturized high-resolution cameras to capture independent video streams and stitches them together in real time to produce 4K-quality video similar to the human eye with no fisheye distortion. Image processing is accomplished in less than 5ms, compared to the human brain’s image processing time of up to 80ms. No time-consuming post processing is required. The result is a real-time natural visual experience.
Among the first commercial applications is group-to-group or group-to-one video communications focused on over 30 million huddle spaces being rapidly adopted by visual Millennials in the workplace. More than 80 enterprise companies and educational institutions have already deployed PanaCast 2 for business collaboration and global learning since it’s launch in September of 2015.
Altia Systems’ PanaCast 2 video camera will be showcased at the CES Unveiled media event on January 4 from 4:30 to 7:30 PM at the Mandalay Bay Hotel.
Altia Systems will have a Meeting Place at the Las Vegas Convention Center South 2 in MP # 25373 for demonstrations of the PanaCast 2 camera working with popular applications such as Microsoft, Skype for Business, Skype, Cisco, WebEx, Google Hangouts, Citrix, GoToMeeting, Vidyo, Zoom, Facebook Messenger, and its own PanaCast Experience software.
