Jabra PanaCast vs PanaCast 20: Which is Best for Your Video Conferencing Needs? 

In the era of remote work and digital collaboration, a reliable video conferencing setup is more critical than ever. Jabra offers two cutting-edge solutions: the PanaCast and PanaCast 20. While both are engineered to enhance your video calls, they cater to different use cases. Let’s dive into the specifics to help you choose the perfect device for your needs. 

Design and Build 

Jabra PanaCast is billed as the world’s first intelligent 180° Panoramic-4K plug-and-play video solution. It’s designed for professional environments and can be flexibly mounted on various surfaces for optimal coverage. 

Jabra PanaCast 20 offers personal, AI-enabled video conferencing with a portable design and integrated privacy cover. This device is tailored for individual users who need high-quality video on the go. 

Video Quality and Field of View 

The original PanaCast boasts an impressive 180° field of view in Panoramic-4K resolution, ensuring everyone in the meeting room is visible. The auto light correction and electronic Pan-Tilt-Zoom (ePTZ) maintain video quality in varying light conditions. 

Conversely, the PanaCast 20 features a narrower 90° field of view, but with the same 4K resolution. Its Intelligent Zoom, and Intelligent Lighting Optimization are designed to keep the focus on the individual, adjusting the frame and lighting in real time. 

Audio and Microphones 

Audio quality is crucial for clear communication. The PanaCast initially has its microphone disabled, requiring activation via Jabra Direct. Once enabled, it captures sound with clarity. (How do I enable/disable the built-in microphone on the Jabra PanaCast using Jabra Direct?

Jabra PanaCast vs PanaCast 20

The PanaCast 20 has three built-in MEMS microphones, providing an optimal range of up to 2.5 meters (8 feet) and ensuring crisp audio pickup directly out of the box. Get excellent audio by pairing with Jabra’s extensive professional-grade headsets and speakerphones. 

Connectivity and Compatibility 

Both devices connect via USB 3.0, ensuring fast and reliable video data transfer. However, the PanaCast offers additional compatibility with a USB 2.0 through the Jabra USB hub, making it more versatile for different setups. 

Innovative Features 

Jabra’s PanaCast includes Intelligent Zoom and Whiteboard, which are ideal for team settings. It can automatically capture and enhance a whiteboard’s content in real time. 

PanaCast 20 shines with personalization features such as Picture-in-Picture and On-device Background Effects, catering to personal users who need to control their video presentation intricately.

Use Cases 

Choose Jabra PanaCast if you are outfitting a meeting room and need to capture every participant or if your focus is on collaborative, interactive sessions involving whiteboards or large group discussions. I carry the Jabra PanaCast Meet Anywhere Bundle everywhere I go. I have used it several times when people couldn’t join an in-person meeting, and there was no AV equipment in the room. The Jabra Meet Anywhere and Meet Anywhere+ bundles have everything you need to transform any space into a meeting place. A compact travel pouch keeps the intelligent Jabra PanaCast and premium Speak 750 in one easily portable place, so you can enjoy simple plug-and-play communication whenever needed.

Opt for the PanaCast 20 if you are a remote professional or educator seeking high-quality video and audio for one-on-one interactions or if you frequently move between workspaces and require a portable, personal solution. The Jabra PanaCast 20 has become my default webcam for video meetings and filming YouTube videos! Check out this video! Jabra PanaCast 20 Unboxing, Overview, Intelligent Zoom and PIP Demo

Price Point 

Considering the budget, PanaCast is priced at $550, reflecting its enterprise-focused features. The PanaCast 20, at $199, is more accessible for individual users or those needing a high-quality video solution without the breadth of a full room capture. 


The Jabra PanaCast and PanaCast 20 cater to different environments but share the same commitment to quality. For expansive room coverage and interactive sessions, the PanaCast is unmatched. For personal use with intelligent framing and lighting, the PanaCast 20 excels. 

Evaluate your space, audience, and type of communication to make the best choice for your video conferencing needs. It’s best to contact an Authorized Jabra Reseller like Call One, Inc. to help guide your decision.

Jabra Direct is an application with a simple user interface that lets you get your Jabra device(s) connected to softphone(s) and ready for calls and music. It also allows you to personalize your Jabra device, update your device firmware for the best possible performance, and get remote call control over your softphone(s).  

Jabra Direct enables you to have remote call control (answer/end call, mute, redial etc.) from your Jabra audio device. Jabra Direct will automatically detect and enable remote call control for the softphones installed on your computer.  

The Jabra Direct dashboard is a user-friendly status menu available from the desktop notification area, typically accessed via the lower right corner of the desktop. The dashboard shows the status of your Jabra device if any updates are available, and if your softphone(s) are ready for use. By clicking your Jabra device in the dashboard, you will be linked to the Jabra Direct main application for managing setting preferences, starting firmware updates, or accessing applications that might be available for your Jabra device.  

The device setting control in Jabra Direct enables you to configure your Jabra audio and video device to fit your personal preferences.
