Experience Mezzanine in the Unified Communications Pavilion at ISE 2015


Following a successful debut at InfoComm 2014 in Las Vegas, Oblong Industries will showcase Mezzanine™, the next-generation collaborative conference room solution favored by leading global brands like IBM, Dentsu Aegis and NTT, at ISE 2015 in Amsterdam.

Mezzanine delivers Infopresence™ which goes beyond telepresence to bring the content and data from multiple meeting participants into a multi-surface, large format, shared digital workspace accessible to those inside a Mezzanine conference room, connected from another Mezzanine room, or working remotely from a variety of devices including laptops, tablets and smart phones. Further, the gesture-enabled and spatially-aware properties of the Mezzanine conference room solution provide an immersive experience which is unmatched in the enterprise marketplace.

Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) is the world’s largest tradeshow dedicated to professional AV and electronic systems integration and takes place from the 10-12 February 2015 at the Amsterdam RAI.

With the Unified Communications market in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) forecast to double over the next few years, it is becoming increasingly vital for global corporations to invest in collaborative, connected workspace technologies. Mezzanine transcends telepresence and standard videoconferencing solutions to accelerate the ability to share content, boost productivity and unlock innovation – transforming business and energizing work teams.

Occupying booth 9-B102 in the Unified Communications Hall, Oblong Industries will showcase their unique platform to the European market for the first time. Mike Brown, Oblong’s Global VP of Sales comments, “We are incredibly excited to introduce Mezzanine to the European audience – following on from the amazing reception we received at InfoComm this year. With our European headquarters in Barcelona and the brand new Oblong Experience Centre in London, it seems a natural progression to take part in ISE 2015. We have a number of exciting projects already in the pipeline across the EMEA Region and can’t wait to build on this great foundation.”

He adds, “Mezzanine revolutionizes the business meeting. It enables multiple participants to share their image, voice, devices, and data simultaneously. Meetings can become so much more productive. Collaboration is easy. Your data and devices are active participants in the meeting. For example, you can create a real-time sales pipeline status war-room, sharing sales dashboard applications and data face-to-face and side-by-side with a globally distributed sales force.”

Oblong calls this experience Infopresence™ and the result is a vibrant, interactive, more collaborative and more productive workspace and it is something the wider European market can benefit hugely from.

ISE 2014 attracted over 50,000 attendees, where more than 950 exhibitors occupied over 36,000 square meters of total net floor space. Visitors to ISE 2015 will be able to see how sci-fi technology envisioned by Oblong’s Founder John Underkoffler and witnessed in movies such as Minority Report and Iron Man, is now a reality in Mezzanine. Visitors will experience how the platform seamlessly blends physical and digital environments to create a shared workspace that is capable across world-wide locations in real-time.
