Mersive Technologies Announces New Version of Its Solstice Collaboration Platform
Mersive Technologies is introducing a new version of its Solstice collaboration platform, Solstice 6, at InfoComm 2023. As you may know, Solstice enables users to share content from any device to any Solstice-enabled display in a meeting room, huddle space, classroom, or other collaboration environment.
Solstice 6 makes installation, configuration, and overall deployment of Solstice Pods and supporting software easier for channel partners and integrators with a new onboarding software routine. When the integrator or IT professional first unboxes and plugs in the Solstice Pod, a new guided setup screen and installer tool opens to walk them through network, internet, and Solstice Cloud setup and ensure that each Pod is properly deployed. The installer also automatically whitelists Solstice with Windows Defender so users can get the most out of the Solstice software. All of these improvements dramatically reduce the time between installation and collaboration.
Solstice allows users to use their own devices to collaborate via the Solstice app. However, only some users want or are able to download an app on their device. Solstice 6 allows users to visit share.mersive.com to wirelessly and securely share content through a web browser without having to download the Solstice app. Users open the browser on their laptop and start sharing content wirelessly and securely. Whether they are using the Solstice app or the new web interface, collaborators enjoy the same streamlined user interface and familiar Solstice experience.
Mersive is continually improving the performance and stability of the Solstice platform. Solstice 6 enhancements include support for a broader range of networks, devices, and room types. Mersive has also improved back-end processes that free up CPU and memory usage, so the meeting host has more power and resources available to them while using Solstice 6.
Solstice 6 features enhanced Dynamic Digital Signage, allowing users to engage and captivate end users. Solstice 6 transforms Mersive’s digital signage capabilities through a completely customizable web page that is interactive and dynamically responsive via occupancy sensors, calendar events, or even API calls. Touchscreen displays enable that customized experience to be even richer, allowing room occupants to use the display to book an available room, submit an IT ticket, play a video, or display a welcome screen to anyone that enters the room.
With Solstice 6, the education industry has a new way to acquire the Solstice collaboration solution that accommodates the typical education ‘use-it-or-lose-it’ budget model. For educational institutions only, the Solstice Pod for Education is available for purchase outright without the need for a subscription. The base Solstice Pod for Education comes with all of the Solstice Pod core features and software updates, plus support for the lifetime of the Pod. An introductory version of Solstice Cloud is also included with upgrade options available for analytics and monitoring.
