Jupiter’s Pana34 to Be Featured in Barcelona at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE)

Analyst Take: As the world returns to the office, many of us are finding our day-to-day habits and routines have changed considerably since 2020. From the technology we use and interact with, to the ways we meet and collaborate, hybrid work has become the new normal. To some, hybrid means working from home, while for others it means video conferencing requirements for meetings. In the end, there isn’t a one-size fits all deployment for hybrid, but there are some patterns I see emerging across the enterprise.

A growing number of offices are shifting to suit hybrid schedules and requirements, repurposing space to hot-desk or hotel style workstations. Hot desks aren’t assigned to an individual, and in some cases may be free for anyone within the organization to use. The challenge for those tasked with updating the office is sourcing devices that accommodate and flex to role specific requirements.

Where Jupiter’s Pana34 Fits in this Mix

So, where does Jupiter’s Pana34 fit into this mix? Driven by the emerging need for flexible workstations Jupiter was inspired to introduce the Pana34, a 21:9 aspect ratio touch-enabled desktop display for collaboration and design. This platform agnostic display scales a personal computer into a professional workstation through a single USB-C connection. In addition to the USB-C connectivity, the device has pass-through power that concurrently charges the connected device. While a small feature, this functionality is critical in personal workstations and hot desking environments as a single cable approach keeps spaces clean and reduces confusion.

Jupiter’s Pana34 was purpose built to be both platform agnostic and bring your own device (BYOD) centric, With the Pana34, Jupiter created a device that spans both the office and the home-desktop. It is not a stretch to think of designers working in the office, disconnecting a device, and heading home only to connect to the same workstation to continue work. Continuity of the interface becomes pivotal in these situations. The same can be said for Network Operations, and Customer Service roles, as dashboards and touch-connectivity improve time-to-resolution.

Jupiters Pana34 features not only an immersive 34” display, the company has also included microphones, speakers and a removeable camera with cover. With this functionality it is clear the device is designed to scale personal devices into professional meeting experiences.

From Display to Design Tool

While leveraging Jupiter’s Pana34 as a video conferencing device is a great experience, it is the combination of display and design tool that really separates the solution from other offerings. The secret to dual use is the base of the Pana 34 device, which is weighted and crafted to seamlessly glide the display. When pulling the Pana34 toward the user, the display begins to tilt and lower to the desk, transforming from an immersive display to a design tool. For information workers that interact with drawing tools, or touch-centric software, Jupiter’s Pana34 is one of the only devices that seamlessly scales a personal device. The user can also find the right angle anywhere along the glide-path, ensuring a comfortable interaction with the content. In testing, it became clear how out of step touch-enabled displays can be, as vertical surfaces are not the most natural writing or drawing experience.

While there are other devices in the market that tout the design applications of a display, all of them include a base operating system and lack the companion capabilities needed across today’s workforce. From first use, Jupiter’s Pana34 builds off what the user is comfortable with — their own device — allowing for a smooth adoption.

The Jupiter Pana34 Makes a Statement from the Very First Experience

There is no mistaking Jupiter’s Pana34 for any other device, the form factor and presence at a workstation make a statement. While the device itself is large, the design of the base makes movement simple and easy. This ease of movement encourages users to engage with the content more often, making adoption of both touch-enabled devices and touch-centric software easier. The quality of materials, craftsmanship, fit and finish of the Pana34 all convey enterprise-ready durability with consumer-brand design influences.

The design conveys a high-quality, immersive experience that draws you in. While testing Jupiter’s Pana34, a lead developer for an industry leading insurance company, Corey S., had the chance to work on the device. His reaction was immediate, and within a matter of minutes he was leveraging the Pana34’s wide aspect ratio and touch-display to the fullest potential.

“I feel like we’re working on the Starship Enterprise, this is not a normal workstation. The 21:9 aspect ratio is great for anyone in development or Network Operations.”

The real benefit that Corey saw in his brief time working with the Pana34, was how simple it was to connect his device through USB-C and have it scale seamlessly to the workstation. The BYOD approach allowed him to transition at his pace and encouraged him to build trust in the device from the first interaction.

The Opportunities for Jupiter’s Pana34 in the Hybrid Workplace

Based on what we’re seeing in the market, both from customera and by way of firsthand testing experiences, Jupiter’s Pana34 is well-suited to address the needs of information workers as we embrace the realities of the hybrid workplace.

The simple USB-C connectivity, seamless scale for enterprise-grade audio / video, and high-quality touch interface suit both the office and home workstations. The unique design of the Pano34 base encourages touch interactions and immersive experiences, reducing friction across current and future software adoptions. The ability to transition between a traditional display and video conferencing device to a touch-enabled tablet provides the ultimate flexibility to hot-desk applications that must adapt to a different user every day.

As a BYOD centric device, training and friction costs are reduced as the device relies on the workflows already in use by team members. The workstation will scale a user’s personal device to meet the needs of today’s workstation through a wide content format, great touch interaction, and unique ability to convert from a display to a design and development tool with a single movement. I’m looking forward to seeing Jupiter’s Pano34 in action at ISE and seeing demos and user feedback — it should be interesting.
