Lightware Visual Engineering says its Taurus Switcher solutions can be integrated with Microsoft Teams Rooms on Windows to make BYOD solutions; sort of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) functionality and room control capabilities for Teams meeting spaces.

The solution augments the Microsoft Teams Rooms experience by allowing users to integrate their personal laptops with the room’s meeting system.

Lightware Taurus switchers extend connectivity options, allowing multiple source inputs and providing additional USB peripheral support. This means users can participate in meetings using their own devices, with seamless integration into the room’s larger AV infrastructure.

In addition, by configuring the Lightware Companion App on a Microsoft Teams Rooms PC and integrating the Companion module within Lightware Advanced Room Control (LARA), additional functions can be introduced to further enhance meeting room capabilities. Lightware Taurus Switchers have also been validated for use by a wide range of leading meeting room technology manufacturers, including Lenovo, Poly, Logitech, Yealink and Barco.

Compatible Lightware products include the Taurus UCX, which is an advanced universal switcher that offers a powerful combination of USB-C and HDMI connectivity in one single device to transform any meeting space or huddle room into a unified communication powerhouse. In addition, the Taurus TPX is a pioneering signal management solution capable of extending USB-C and HDMI signals to as much as 100 metres and is relied on by professionals worldwide to enable true digital collaboration.
