LG & Cisco Team Up to Create Turnkey Videoconferencing Solutions
What’s it like preparing for a videoconference at your business?
Is it a smooth, seamless process that automatically sets the technology at your service as soon you enter the room? Is the video quality stunningly realistic?
Or do you have to start from scratch every time, locating plugs and remote controls, pushing a number of buttons and maybe figuring out why a particular component isn’t working properly?
If it’s the latter, as we’ve often seen, we have very good news that can make your videoconferences, meetings, presentations, content delivery and room/device integrations a lot simpler, and smarter.
LG’s commercial AV group has teamed up with Cisco to create a seamless integration between the industry-leading Cisco Spark Room Kit Series and LG Commercial UHD Displays to transform the experience from complicated to conversational.
Cisco Spark Room Kits are powerful collaboration solutions that integrate with select LG commercial displays to bring more intelligence and usability to your small to medium-sized meeting rooms – whether registered on the premises or through the cloud.
The Room Kit includes camera, codec, speakers and microphones integrated into a single device – and is ideal for rooms that seat up to 7 people. The Room Kit Plus features a separate quad-camera bar and can accommodate larger and deeper rooms of up to 14 people. Both kits offer sophisticated camera technologies that bring speaker-tracking capabilities to every room.
In a nutshell, with the LG/Cisco solutions you can walk into a conference room and get going – as simple as that, even if you’re a first-time user. The system will greet you with a welcome screen and is a much more engaging experience for everyone. You control everything through the intuitive Cisco Touch 10 control unit, so there’s no need to use separate remote controls or learn different user interfaces. And the biggest benefit? Now you can be free to focus entirely on collaborating and not on the technology.
Currently there are six Cisco-certified commercial displays available from LG, from 49- to 98-inches, with dual screen sharing option and 24/7 rating. LG’s IPS screen technology means colors are more vivid, text is sharper and a wide viewing angle ensures all participants see a clear picture. What’s more, LG commercial displays use on average 31 percent less power compared to conventional RGB panels for lower power consumption, lower running costs and superior eco credentials.
