Oblong Industries Introduces the Mezzanine Series

New Product Innovations Bring Superior Visual Collaboration to More Teams, Work Spaces, and Use Cases

We’re pleased to introduce the expanded product range and series naming convention for our flagship immersive visual collaboration solution, Mezzanine. Along with hardware and software innovations that drive the entry price point for a full Mezzanine solution below $50k, we are adding seamless integrations with popular enterprise utilities including calendaring and Skype for Business.

Mezzanine offers high-performance collaboration for rooms of all sizes, from small and medium-size teamwork spaces to the largest executive briefing centers. This new nomenclature makes it easier for our customers and integrator partners to zero-in on the most appropriate Mezzanine solution for their particular use case, team composition, workflow needs, and physical space. We’ll be talking more about the Mezzanine Series at Infocomm 2017, the largest AV conference in the United States. (Register for a booth appointment.)

What’s new:

Mezzanine 200 Series. This dual screen configuration for small to medium sized teaming rooms delivers advanced collaboration capabilities previously accessible only in large and exclusive meeting rooms. Concurrent viewing of up to 10 shared devices, gestural interaction, and real-time control by multiple participants are now available in a familiar form factor. With more accessible pricing and streamlined installation, the Mezzanine 200 Series is a new high-water mark for teamwork in smaller spaces.

Mezzanine 300 Series. While traditional conferencing systems provide only one content channel, Mezzanine 300 takes full advantage of its three-screen configuration, enabling richer collaboration around multi-stream content. The Mezzanine 300’s expansive shared workspace matches that of our flagship Series 600 and 650 solutions, allowing customers to extend the immersive Mezzanine experience to satellite offices at a lower cost. Mezzanine 300 is fully upgradeable to Mezzanine 600 Series.

Mezzanine 600 Series. The Mezzanine 600 naturally accelerates consensus and confidence during collaborative work sessions by making all the decision factors visible and accessible. Beyond the clear, practical benefits of the three-screen primary workspace shared across locations, and the three-screen secondary workspace for those in the room, the “wow” factor of the large multi-dimensional workspace makes a strong impression during presentations. This popular six-screen Mezzanine configuration features new spatial tracking technology that requires no room remediation; new in-room server options reduce cost and installation complexity.

Mezzanine 650 Series. Oblong’s original immersive solution for larger architectural spaces is extensible for a more exhilarating and immersive interactive environment. With major display wall expandability and extra ‘corkboard’ interactive surfaces on multiple walls, Mezzanine 650 supplies the real estate required to tell truly expansive and engaging stories, or to display all the factors involved in a complex project or business challenge.

With this series of solutions, brilliant immersive visual collaboration capabilities are accessible to more teams in more places. Recently, the independent analysts at Gartner included Mezzanine in the recent research note “Select the Right Technology for Modern Meeting Rooms.” A commissioned study by Forrester validates the business impact of Mezzanine for the enterprise and shows that Mezzanine pays for itself in less than eight months and offers an ROI of 226% in 3 years. The future of work is more immersive, visual, and productive with Mezzanine.
