2014 in review: Best stories and mobile devices, questions for 2015
Oblong’s technology platform brings data sets, workspaces, and communications channels to life across multiple screens. It allows interaction from any number or type of input devices simultaneously, including touch screens, phones, and tablets. And it frees the user from sitting in one place, tied to one device.
Mezzanine™ introduces multi-user, multi-screen, multi-device collaboration. This is next-generation communication.
Mezzanine transforms creative teamwork, executive meetings, and sales presentations.
Built on Oblong’s g-speak core technology platform, Mezzanine brings together people, screens, devices, applications, and data into a single, networked, shared workspace.
A Mezzanine workspace lets any person on a network share content and applications with any colleague, anywhere in the world, interactively. Mezzanine is a turnkey appliance which combines presentation design and delivery, application sharing, whiteboard capture, and video conferencing, all within a framework of multi-participant control.
Support Next Generation Work
Oblong‘s products are helping companies like Boeing and GE to super-charge the work of collaborative project teams, including engineers, marketing experts, designers, software developers, and business analytics specialists. A Mezzanine room provides large amounts of screen real estate, flexible content sharing from multiple devices, and integration with whiteboards and telepresence infrastructure.
Whether in regular status updates in one location or in “follow the sun” distributed work, Mezzanine shared workspaces enable teams to communicate better, collaborate more effectively, and work faster.
Meet and Work More Efficiently
Decisions matter. Mezzanine accelerates outcomes in decision-oriented meetings.
Mezzanine brings together all of the evolving technologies of today’s enterprise into a single communications space. Every participant in a Mezzanine session — whether local or remote — can present, share live content from laptops or mobile devices, and bring information in from the web or the enterprise cloud that aids the decision-making process.
Research from Annenberg School of Communications at UCLA and the University of Minnesota’s Training & Development Research Center show that executives on average spend forty to fifty percent of their working hours in meetings. These meetings can, and should, be more productive. And being able to make informed decisions based on shared context leads makes a meeting more effective.
Mezzanine is tomorrow’s communications platform, making meetings and working sessions more effective and higher-impact by helping multiple team members share and compare data to make informed decisions, quickly. Mezzanine also reduces the need to travel for meetings, extending the benefits of the telepresence and video conferencing tools that the platform interoperates with and extends.
Elevate the Customer Experience
Communicate, explain, impress. Mezzanine’s immersive, large-screen environments maximize the impact of presentations, sales demonstrations, and executive briefing center engagements.
Mezzanine turns pre-scripted presentations into adaptable, flexible conversations. A slide deck can transition seamlessly into question and answer sessions with supporting video, deep-dive demonstrations, and supporting material from the web and the cloud. Remote experts can be brought in via telepresence and fully control the large-screen workspace, including slide decks, videos, and application screens.
A Mezzanine presentation environment supports any size screens, from affordable standard LCDs to high-end, edge-blended display walls.
Mezzanine creates engagement. Engagement leads to better conversations, deeper relationships, and higher conversion rates.
