PanaCast – Panoramic Virtual Meetings | Best of CES

Over the recent influx of online meetings, we have come to one conclusion… Many people have found that it is hard to tell if the participants are actually paying attention.

Well, Silicon Valley’s newest startup, Altia Systems, developed an innovative solution with the PanaCast 2 video camera system. This video camera is a panoramic plug-and-play USB device that connects to a PC or a mac. PanaCast 2 takes in a massive amount of information and synchronizes, stiches, and renders it to see what a room would look like if you were actually there. It has an ultra-wide 180 degrees wide and 54 degrees tall field of view. It is also small and light and won’t get in the way.

PanaCast 2 can be used in conjunction with popular apps such as Skype, Facebook, Citrix, GoToMeeting, and more and has an easy setup and does not require any software downloads or any installations. It will not only help maintain transparency with your co-workers, it will also establish a more efficient, productive environment for online meetings. Virtual meetings will now be even more convenient. PanaCast 2 will also create a better relationship between its users. PanaCast by Altia Systems looks to bring the natural human perspective to video conferencing.  Through Panoramic-4K quality video they make sure you can “Be There From Anywhere”.

PanaCast 2 has been setting itself above the fray of others in it’s category by being acknowledged by huge companies like Intel, CES, Carnegie Mellon University, and rackspace. 

This year at CES, PanaCast is being honored in the “Tech for a Better World” category.  

“The new PanaCast 2 camera, combined with Intel®Core processor-based PCs, brings visual collaboration experience to a new level of clarity for users.”— Jay Kirkland, VP, general manager of the Reference Systems & Technologies Group within Intel’s Client Computing Group.

While other video collaboration tools can cost upwards of $100,000.00 dollars, PanaCast 2 is available at a fraction of the cost for $995. Visit to learn more.
