Jabra and UMA Deliver Integrated Meeting Room Technology Solutions to Transform the Workplace

Jabra and UMA have partnered to deliver innovative video conferencing and meeting room solutions, enabling Jabra devices to be managed seamlessly from one place on the UMA dashboard with real-time analytics. With Jabra PanaCast intelligent video conferencing cameras, users can manage meeting room occupancy levels and control room occupancy levels from a desktop, smartphone or meeting room display panel to optimise the use of office space.


The Jabra PanaCast and PanaCast 50’s unique 180-degree field-of-view covers the whole room and generates anonymous room occupancy data. This feeds real-time information into the UMA dashboard, providing insights and analytics. UMA automatically makes a meeting room available to book in the event of a no-show. Rooms can also be auto-booked by simply walking in.

Organisations are now able to optimise their facilities and technology infrastructure to create an efficient and safe workplace, compliant with Covid Winter-Plan guidelines.

The combined value-proposition of UMA and Jabra allows customers to realise an improved return on their technology investments through business intelligence and simpler mechanisms to support and maintain their meeting room technology.
