Mersive Technologies announced Tuesday the release of Solstice Active Learning and Solstice Cloud (aka Kepler). These products expand upon Solstice’s wireless content-sharing platform by providing software-based video routing for multiscreen environments and cloud-based management and analytics for administering global Solstice deployments.
Mersive’s Active Learning solution brings collaboration to the forefront of the classroom experience by providing educators with a flexible software solution for using multiscreen environments for active learning. This approach eliminates the need for expensive hardware and complicated room build-outs while allowing on-staff administrators and teachers to design and operate the solution using a drag-and-drop interface on their tablets or laptops. This software-based approach reduces the cost and complexity for schools that want to move to this learning model.
Solstice Cloud expands beyond analytics to include a full suite of configuration, monitoring and management capabilities designed for global administration of Solstice deployments. These capabilities maximize administrator efficiency through easy deployment, organization, monitoring and updating of Solstice Pods from any location on any device. At the same time, analytics provide companies with insights on collaboration spaces that can be used to improve the productivity of meeting and learning spaces.
Active Learning can now be purchased via annual subscription and evaluated through a free trial on any Gen3 Pods running Solstice 4.5. Solstice Cloud will be available in early April and may be accessed by any Gen2i or Gen3 Pod running Solstice 4.5. Solstice Cloud Management remains free for the life of the Pod while Solstice Cloud Analytics is part of Solstice Subscription, which is free for the first year and must be renewed annually thereafter.
