New Prysm Go Is Designed to Turn All Meeting Rooms Into a Collaboration Room

Prysm today announced Prysm Go, a new product that turns any meeting room into a collaboration room. For meeting rooms that are already enabled with video conferencing codecs such as those from Cisco, Polycom and Logitech, Prysm Go enables meeting participants to accept or reject incoming calls, control meeting room volume, share content with other participants, and dial another video codec-enabled room. This means advanced video collaboration rooms can share content while eliminating the need for separate remotes and complicated, one-off dial-pads.

Other Prysm Go features include:

  • Digital whiteboard: Write down ideas, draw diagrams and share whiteboard content via email quickly
  • Wired and wireless screen sharing: Multiple participants can share their laptops or mobile-device screens via HDMI, Apple AirPlay or Google Cast.
  • Integration with video conferencing and unified communications tools: For meeting rooms that are already enabled with video conferencing codecs such as those from Cisco, Polycom and Logitech, or for users of users of Skype for Business, beginning in early Q3 2017, Prysm Go is expected to enable meeting participants to accept or reject incoming calls, control meeting room volume, share content with other participants, and dial another video codec-enabled room, all from the Prysm display.
  • Video integration: Connect live video, audio or data feeds for always-available access to key people and information.

With Prysm Go, no sign-in is required, including access to the digital sketchboard, sharing devices – both wired and wireless, and integrating HDMI outputs. In addition, Prysm Go integrates with Skype for Business and video conferencing platforms, allowing users to join scheduled meetings with an invitation from the host.

Prysm Go is available in two versions. For use with existing displays and hardware, the first version includes the Prysm X30 appliance and a free trial of Prysm Application Suite license, allowing companies to use their existing displays and third-party meeting set-ups whether they are interactive or keyboard- and mouse-driven displays. The second version is for those in need of a display and offers an 85” display Collaboration Board system with the Prysm X30, 85” 4K LCD display and a free trial of the Prysm Application Suite license.

Built on a hardware-agnostic platform, Prysm Go allows for instant meeting start capabilities while also offering an upgradable path to the full Prysm digital workplace platform without additional infrastructure requirements. Companies now have the flexibility to grow with the complete Prysm solution at a user-personalized scale, which supports individual participant content repositories and project persistence. Once the solution is deployed, enterprises can purchase individual licenses with no extra hardware or added implementation required.

Here are all the details.
