Prysm Builds Apps for Windows Devices and iPhones; Simplifying Collaboration for AV Integrators

Prysm today announced two new native apps for its digital workplace platform: one for Microsoft Windows 10-based devices using the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and the other for iPhones. The new apps can be used with Prysm’s existing room and web-access solutions to provide a single user experience tailored to how connected teams and individuals visualize and work with their preferred devices, applications and content. Using Prysm increases user engagement by allowing quick, easy access for all participants, regardless of location. By allowing all participants to interact simultaneously with content, it creates the desired collaborative experience in which every meeting participant is fully engaged from beginning to end.

Prysm Desktop features and benefits:

  • Collaborate within native apps on a shared digital workplace, regardless of location—an industry first
  • Flexibility to tailor access to each individual’s style or place of work
  • Easy movement of content from the desktop to a Prysm project within existing Windows functionality
  • Seamless transitions between individual productivity tasks and team-based project work
  • Maximizes existing and mixed IT infrastructures and technology investments

Prysm for iPhone features and benefits:

  • Touch ID from the iPhone offers immediate, secure access to projects
  • iPhone recognizes and connects users to in-room Prysm experiences, using PIN-based display login
  • All users, including mobile users, can engage in projects in order to speed decisions
  • Easily add files, content found from websites, or other apps on an iPhone to a shared workspace
  • Participants can view any file associated with a project directly from an iPhone, without disturbing the view for others in the workspace

Users of Prysm’s meeting room and web-access solutions can continue to expect the same experience they currently enjoy today, or switch between web and app access as needed for maximum productivity and ease of use.

At general availability, the desktop app will support Microsoft Windows 10-powered devices, including laptops, Surface devices and the Surface Hub via UWP, with plans to expand to other platforms in 2018. The Prysm desktop and Prysm for iPhone apps are expected to be available by the end of Q4 2017. Here are all the details.

The company also announced its Autumn ’17 software release, featuring integration with six key identity providers to offer enterprises more control when issuing Prysm user licenses to employees.
