Mersive announced this week the availability of the Solstice Open Control Communication Protocol, which allows integration between Solstice Display Software with in-room AV control panels from vendors such as Crestron and AMX. With this integration interface, users can control their Solstice displays from their room control panel.
Introduced in March 2013, Mersive’s Solstice software enables multiple users to connect simultaneously to a shared display using a range of mobile devices and applications over an existing Wi-Fi or Ethernet network. With Solstice, anyone can walk into a meeting room and instantly connect and start a collaboration session.
The AV and IT industries are in the midst of a convergence, in fact, according to a recent InfoComm report, 56 percent of pro-AV Professionals believe the convergence has already changed the way they do business. Mersive says that its software-only solution Solstice works with any kind of display, including a single projector, flat panel or a large video wall. It can run in parallel with soft-client video conferencing solutions, such as Vidyo, WebEx, Lync, GoToMeeting, etc. It also comes with an IT dashboard that centrally manages all displays throughout the enterprise, and now the addition of the Solstice Open Control Protocol makes it easy to integrate with room control systems, providing additional efficiency, functionality and cost savings.
Mersive offers a free 30-day trial of Solstice Display Software, which needs to be installed on a Windows machine that is connected to a display. Solstice is display agnostic; it can work with any type of display including projectors and flat panels. Get a free trial here.
