Mersive has launched Solstice 3.0 which now features Multi-Room. The product allows users who aren’t in the same room to connect, share, and control content collaboratively across their enterprise network.
Solstice enables any number of users to connect to a meeting room display via WiFi/Ethernet networks and share and control unlimited content from their laptops and mobile devices. Meeting participants can mirror their device screens, stream individual application windows, share videos and more. When two or more Solstice displays are synced in a Multi-Room session, shared content appears on all meeting room displays regardless of which location it is shared from.
“Current audio and video conferencing offer multi-room connectivity, but because they limit content to a single thread, meetings are by default relegated to presentation mode,” observes Mersive CEO Rob Balgley. “Now with Solstice Multi-Room, users can have both connectivity for multiple rooms and multi-threaded content. This puts content sharing on a level playing field with audio and video.”
Solstice Multi-Room is additive to existing conferencing solutions, addressing the need for broader content sharing to complement traditional meeting audio/video connectivity. The user interface allows participants to input dial-in and/or video teleconference connection information, which other users can see and access as they join the Multi-Room session. A new chat feature is also included for messaging among users in Multi-Room meetings. In addition to the new Multi-Room capability, the 3.0 version of Solstice includes a streamlined user interface design, which further improves ease-of-use.
“Collaboration among participants within a company is often content heavy, a use case that has been largely ignored by legacy conferencing services whose roots are in traditional telephony,” said Mersive CTO Christopher Jaynes. “Solstice Multi-Room supports the trend towards a more ad-hoc meeting culture by increasing meeting awareness, making meetings easier to join, and allowing content to be shared collaboratively — now without geographical limits.”
Solstice 3.0 with Multi-Room will be on display for the first time at ISE in Amsterdam February 7-10, 2017. Scheduled for release in March of 2017.
