With the return of face-to-face conferencing and education, along with the continued necessity of incorporating remote participation, integrators and their customers are increasingly looking to update and modernize their systems. The “Conference Room in a Box” family of products from Key Digital, a developer and manufacturer of digital video processing, video signal distribution and AV-over-IP solutions, accommodates meetings of any size, from huddle room to board room, larger conference spaces and classrooms.

Key Digital Conference Room in a Box solutions require no programming. Meeting participants can connect laptop AV and USB for local or global participation, with a variety of interface options, including remote participation via all popular videoconferencing software platforms. Essential AV sources can remain racked, out of sight, with all the control needed provided by the free iOS KD App and integral CEC display control.
