Oblong Industries, Inc. Key Developments

Oblong Industries, Inc. Announces New Features for Mezzanine

Oblong Industries, Inc. will demonstrate this week at InfoComm 2017 new touch annotation capabilities for its Mezzanine 200 Series visual collaboration solution. It's another key step in the evolution of workplace technology from the firm that places human-centered design principles at the core of product innovation and development. Touch annotation on the Mezzanine 200 Series opens up new and better ways to work together. Unlike many digital whiteboard solutions, which only enable annotation over a single directly connected device, Mezzanine allows annotation over multiple streams simultaneously. Collaborators can annotate over graphics or live video, including live video feeds of analog whiteboards in other locations. Snapshot the annotated content instantly to create a new asset and deliver it directly into the workspace portfolio for later reference and download. Visitors to booth 1871 at InfoComm in Orlando this week will be able experience touch annotation firsthand, which is slated for delivery in Third Quarter 2017. Also available for delivery in third quarter are integrations with popular enterprise utilities that are a part of the Microsoft ecosystem, including calendar integration with Microsoft Exchange and video integration with Skype for Business. It's easy to schedule and start Mezzanine meetings with these familiar enterprise tools, enabling remote collaborators to join directly from their Skype client, or for rooms to connect with a Skype meeting ID.

Oblong Industries, Inc. Introduces the Mezzanine Series

Oblong Industries, Inc. announced an expanded product range and series naming convention for its immersive visual collaboration solution, Mezzanine. Along with hardware and software innovations that drive the entry price point for a full Mezzanine solution below $50,000, Oblong is adding seamless integrations with popular enterprise utilities including calendaring and Skype for Business. Mezzanine offers high-performance collaboration for rooms of all sizes, from small and medium-size teamwork spaces to the executive briefing centers. New nomenclature makes it easier for customers and integrator partners to zero in on the most appropriate Mezzanine solution for their particular use case, team composition, workflow needs, and physical space. Brilliant, flexible, and immersive visual collaboration capabilities are now available to more teams in more places with the expanded family of Mezzanine solutions: Mezzanine 200 Series. This dual screen configuration for small to medium sized teaming rooms delivers advanced collaboration capabilities previously accessible only in large and exclusive meeting rooms. Concurrent viewing of up to 10 shared devices, gestural interaction, and real-time control by multiple participants are now available in a familiar form factor. With more accessible pricing and streamlined installation, the Mezzanine 200 Series is a new high-water mark for teamwork in smaller spaces. Mezzanine 300 Series. While traditional conferencing systems provide only one content channel, Mezzanine 300 takes full advantage of its three-screen configuration, enabling richer collaboration around multi-stream content. The Mezzanine 300's expansive shared workspace matches that of Series 600 and 650 solutions, allowing customers to extend the immersive Mezzanine experience to satellite offices at a lower cost. Mezzanine 300 is fully upgradeable to Mezzanine 600 Series. Mezzanine 600 Series. The Mezzanine 600 naturally accelerates consensus and confidence during collaborative work sessions by making all the decision factors visible and accessible. Beyond the clear, practical benefits of the three-screen primary workspace shared across locations, and the three-screen secondary workspace for those in the room, the "wow" factor of the large multi-dimensional workspace makes a strong impression during presentations. This popular six-screen Mezzanine configuration features new spatial tracking technology that requires no room remediation; new in-room server options reduce cost and installation complexity. Mezzanine 650 Series. Oblong's original immersive solution for larger architectural spaces is extensible for a more exhilarating and immersive interactive environment. With extensive display wall expandability and extra 'corkboard' interactive surfaces on multiple walls, Mezzanine 650 supplies the real estate required to tell truly expansive and engaging stories, or to display all the factors involved in a complex project or business challenge.
