Advanced Collaboration Workspaces

Conventional methods of the way people interact, collaborate and share are becoming obsolete as businesses are being challenged for greater innovation in the way they do business.

The next big transition is a shift from computing tools that are designed to serve one person, looking at one screen and using one program, towards tools that assume collaboration across multiple screens, programs and increasingly using devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Whether you have invested in an existing telepresence, videoconferencing or Audio Visual (AV) capability, or already have a room where you collaborate - with greater demands for innovation and efficiency in decision making, businesses are looking for next generation technologies that allow work to be conducted both inside and outside the conference room.

Mezzanine is an advanced collaboration environment where participants can engage in meetings and presentations simultaneously, from within the room, via the internet or through video conference; interact with the device of their choice (Mezzanine is a powerful complement to traditional telepresence and video conferencing. It melds technologies for collaborative working, presentation design and delivery, and application sharing, all within a framework of unprecedented multi-participant control.iPad, iPhone, android phone, laptop, pc or whiteboard) and deliver work as a team.

Many companies have rooms where they can collaborate, where people call and join across geographical boundaries. But for making strategic decisions and sharing more and more information and data - the next generation of collaboration is needed.

As we work with more and more computing devices, data and screens, this places increasing demand on the ability to visualise and work smarter with the information available to us. The next big transition is a shift from computing tools that are designed to serve one person, looking at one screen and using one program, towards tools that assume collaboration across multiple screens, devices and programs.

Imagine an environment where the user interface has evolved to one that is spatial, networked and multi screened. Whether you are working on a bid or as part of a project or product team, or have geographical dispersed collaborators. The Mezzanine collaboration product enables people to bring all their digital devices, data, tools and content to a meeting and share, discuss, manipulate and create together. Mezzanine also allows reach through control to existing applications or any computer connected to the system, whether in the room, in the server rack, or on the other side of the world; allowing you to interact with applications for demonstration, or to carry out work during the meeting. As meetings and presentations take place any of the participants involved are able to grab screen or whiteboard content, storing for future reference, or to take away with them for follow on work. Snapshot will capture screen images, and the HD Camera positioned on the whiteboard will bring the physical content into the system.

Multiple Mezzanine systems can also link together, sharing the same workspace, so two groups at two different locations get the full Mezzanine experience, and if someone missed the meeting entirely, they can access anything in Mezzanine's library, at any time.

Mezzanine lets groups collaborate in a way they couldn't before.
