The Great ESCObition @ MBS

Last month has been an exciting month for our team. We are pleased with the successful show at the Systems Expo 2017 held at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre from 26th July to 28th July 2017. The Systems Expo 2017 was also held alongside Tourism Technology 2017 and Pro AVL Asia.

Today, collaboration and convenience are some of the key factors for consideration when it comes to solutions in the workplace. To cater to this, our team showcased an array of collaborative solutions that are easy to use and integrate into any work spaces at the show.

The Microsoft Surface Hub

With its expansive multi-touch screen and wide-angle high-definition cameras and built-in microphone, the Microsoft Surface Hub is an all in one collaborative device that works beautifully in the modern workplace. The Surface Hub comes in two sizes – 84”and 55”. For this event, a 55” Surface Hub was set up for interested visitors to experience the Surface Hub in action. For this event, the Surface Hub was wall mounted though users can choose other options such as a motorized stand.

To demonstrate the collaborative functions of the Surface Hub, our team has several (impromptu) meetings at the show. Here, we have our Executive Director who assisted with the demonstration.

To showcase the fluidness and impressive responsiveness of the Surface Hub, our team used it frequently for mock discussions and even for little leisure activities.

Our team set up a 2X2 videowall solution as well, having each having a separate solution and these solutions are:

· Signbox
· Solstice
· Montage
· Kramer Via Pro

A Kramer switcher, the VSM-4X4HFS, was used to toggle between the screens, allowing us to showcase one unified solution (either of the 4) or to show the separate solutions on each screen.

SignCloud by SignBox

The SignCloud is a digital signage solution build on secure and scalable cloud technology. It supports a magnitude of media player devices running windows, Mac, Linux and even Raspberry Pi. It also supports advanced digital signage features such as facial recognition, audience measurement, touch screen compatibility among others.

Perhaps, the most encouraging feature, is the Content Management System that is very easy to use and navigate. Users have the options of toggling around with the display options and layout. At the show, our team chose a design that showed 3 separate information concurrently.

Essentially, users are given the option to explore and play around with their design and layout and all of which is easily controlled using their Content Management System.

Solstice

Solstice enables multiple users, by multiple we meant any number of users, to connect simultaneously to a shared display using a range of devices over a WiFi or Ethernet network. Users can instantly connect, share and control the display of a Solstice-enabled display, fostering collaboration and decision-making.

Due to its ethernet option, the Solstice offered reliable and stable connection at the exhibition.

The Solstice is also available as a licensed software, or the Solstice Pod which offers a turnkey solution for any meeting space with a display.

Kramer Via Connect Pro

The Via Connect Pro solution offers wireless presentation and collaboration in multiple huddle spaces. Users only need a laptop or mobile device to share files (of any sizes!) and stream videos up to 1080p60. Its whiteboard feature also allows users to annotate, sketch out ideas or edit shared documents making it a useful and convenient tool for facilitation of collaborative meetings for huddle spaces.

The Via Pro can connect up to four user screens on a single main display.

Montage

The last solution shared on our 2X2 video wall solution is Montage. Montage is a wireless presentation, communication and collaboration device. It offers complete communication, with full-screen mirroring as well as video and voice communication for all attendees. It can support up to 12 attendees on screen. It also supports multi-platform collaboration – Windows app, Chrome browser, AirPlay or cast from your own device.

Zoom Rooms

The Zoom Rooms combines video conferencing, wireless content sharing and integrated audio into one easy-to-use and secure platform. Zoom Rooms features local and remote wireless content sharing, high quality video and audio conferencing with up to 200 interactive video participants, and integrations with calendaring systems that can be used in conference, huddle and training rooms, as well as executive offices and classrooms.

In comparison to its competitors, participants do not need to share contact information with each other or create accounts. The host need only emails an invitation containing the link to the meeting room and participants will be directed into the meeting room by clicking on the link.

To provide a setup of how Zoom can be used in office spaces, our team created a mock meeting space using 2 X 32”monitor, Logitech BCC950 and a Crestron Mercury. Our team present frequent calls in via their mobile device or their laptop.

Depending on your requirements, the solutions shared at the exhibition should have given you an array of collaborative solutions to choose from. If you are looking for an interactive all-in-one collaborative device for your office space, the Microsoft Surface Hub presents an exciting option. If you are looking for a cost-effective device for huddle spaces that support file sharing of any sizes, then perhaps, the Kramer Via Connect Pro is for you. Essentially, depending on your needs and requirement, our team has the right solution for you.

If you are interested in any of these solutions, please contact our friendly team at sales@esco.com.sg. We will be more than happy to speak with you on this.

In all, the exhibition has been a wonderful experience for the team. And to our dear friends, partners and clients (existing and potential), thank you for visiting our booth. It was lovely to have you there and our success at the event would not have been possible without your support.

We hope you enjoyed the exhibition as much as we did!
