Oblong Adds Mezzanine Solutions, Creates Mezzanine Series, Targets Wider Range of Applications

Oblong's Mezzanine Series includes Mezzanine 200, offering integration with Skype for Business and more affordable price points.

First there was just Oblong Mezzanine, a robust collaboration offering targeted at organizations with ambitious remote communication and content-sharing needs. Recently came Oblong Mezzanine Teamwork, Oblong’s collaboration solution for smaller spaces. Now, ahead of InfoComm 2017, the product family has grown and Oblong announces the Mezzanine Series.

“We’re especially excited to introduce the 200 Series and its more accessible price tag, as well as features like Mezzanine platform integration with Skype for Business,” says Oblong CEO John Underkoffler

Oblong calls the Mezzanine Series an expanded product range and series naming convention for its flagship immersive visual collaboration solution.

In a press release announcing Mezzanine Series, Oblong points to hardware and software innovations that drive the entry price point for a full Mezzanine solution below $50,000 and seamless integrations with popular enterprise utilities including calendaring and Skype for Business.

Now Mezzanine offers collaboration for rooms of all sizes, adds the press release. “New nomenclature makes it easier for 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.”

Oblong adds that more details on the Mezzanine Series will be revealed at InfoComm 2017. However it offers more on Mezzanine 200 Series, Mezzanine 300 Series, Mezzanine 600 Series and Mezzanine 650 Series.

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 extensive 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.

CEO John Underkoffler says the new Mezzanine series allows Oblong to reach more customers and integrators with more flexible solutions targeted at different sections of the market.

“We’re especially excited to introduce the 200 Series and its more accessible price tag, as well as features like Mezzanine platform integration with Skype for Business. The newly expanded Mezzanine portfolio enables more people in the workplace to benefit from Oblong’s technology and become more creative, collaborative and productive.”
