PanaCast 2 camera brings 180-degree field of vision, Panoramic-4K real-time video, to business collaboration
June 1, 2016, Cupertino, CA – Altia Systems®, creators of the award-winning PanaCast® solution for video and web collaboration, announced that the PanaCast 2, the world’s first Panoramic-4K real-time video camera, has received the 2016 New Product Innovation Award for Video Conferencing Cameras by industry research firm Frost & Sullivan.
Frost & Sullivan based its nomination on a variety of factors, including the PanaCast 2’s ability to address customer requirements and unique, unmet market needs, innovative design, exceptional value for the price and delivering performance that builds customer loyalty.
“We’re honored to be recognized by Frost & Sullivan for our PanaCast 2 camera,” said Aurangzeb Khan, President & CEO of Altia Systems. “More than 250 companies in 27 countries are now using PanaCast 2 with their favorite collaboration software to improve business productivity every day.”
According to Frost & Sullivan, the global market for business web and video collaboration generated revenues of $5.8 billion in 2015 and is forecasted to grow to $9.5 billion by 2020. It is experiencing high growth with accelerated demand driven by a focus on simplification, lower-prices, greater reliability and quality, and an infusion of cloud services.
Frost & Sullivan notes, “At a list price of $995, PanaCast 2 is a tremendous value compared to alternative HD cameras on the market.” It goes on to say, “compared to competing contemporary USB, Cat5 (Ethernet) or HDMI connected cameras designed for business-grade video conferencing, PanaCast 2’s features easily outclass less expensive models and is as much as half the cost of cameras with competitive components and functionality support. Clearly Altia Systems recognizes that customers should not need to compromise functionality or quality for a fair price.”
