Bengaluru, India, 20 April 2022 – Jabra has teamed up with Lenovo to offer an end-customer
solution delivering intuitive, fast, and seamless video conferencing solutions for meeting rooms at the
touch of a button.

The solution includes Jabra’s innovative 180° panoramic 4K plug-and-play video solution PanaCast
50 and Lenovo’s ThinkSmart Hub. This is made up of ThinkSmart Hub, which is optimized for
business productivity and collaboration, as well as being pre-loaded with Microsoft Teams Rooms to
help employees connect and share wherever they are, and the ThinkSmart Hub, 10-point touch HD
display that allows users to initiate and control meetings, as well as share content and work with
colleagues working remotely.

Initially available in the EMEA region, the Jabra PanaCast 50 & Lenovo ThinkSmart Hub brings
together the best technology from two of the biggest names in digital collaboration and creates a new
standard in meeting room set-ups. Video conferencing and collaboration will be effortless courtesy of
the most superior video and audio equipment in one, easy-to-use package.

 

A new standard in video conferencing solutions

This suite of products promises to deliver a new standard in video conferencing and is the ideal
solution for flexible working and the modern meeting room. Users can collaborate with their team at
the touch of a button, whether they’re working from home, the office, or anywhere else in between.
The Jabra PanaCast 50 is engineered to be the world’s first new-normal-ready intelligent video bar.
Its 180° field of view allows for social distancing in meeting rooms so you no longer have to worry
about huddling closely in confined spaces. Also, it effectively takes on the role of the ‘director’ of your
meeting – intelligently adjusting the video stream to follow the action in the meeting.

Lenovo’s purpose-built ThinkSmart Hub is powered by an 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i5-8365U
vPro® processor and delivers connectivity to support any meeting room configuration. It’s understated
Press Release yet stylish design means it can be placed discreetly, and it has ports to support multiple audio and visual accessories and integrated cable management.

Its easy-to-use Microsoft Teams interface makes it ideal for meetings and collaboration. Users can
easily initiate and control meetings as well as share content, making it easy to collaborate with
colleagues wherever they are working. It even has Integrated Infrared sensors that detect when
participants enter the room and automatically turn the system on and off.

Joel Hamon, President EMEA & CALA at Jabra: “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Lenovo
and the launch of the Jabra PanaCast 50 & Lenovo ThinkSmart hub solutions is an exciting step in

businesses everywhere are thinking about how best to collaborate and offer the most advanced
meeting room set-ups with minimal technical input required. We are confident that this solution will
help businesses take their conferencing and collaboration capabilities to new heights.”

this will further drive the transformation towards smarter working environments. It is crucial that customers
