The nature of work is changing. It is more digital, distributed, and BYOD than ever before. New work-styles require new thinking about how and where work gets done. How can you better engage your customers and your workforce? How can IT and AV professionals integrate disparate systems and needs?

Join Oblong Industries COO Mary Ann de Lares Norris as she shares how customers are linking locations, teams, and devices in shared workspaces to drive collaboration and innovation.

Oblong Industries’ Booth (9-B102)

Oblong Industries will showcase Mezzanine, the next-generation conferencing and collaboration solution favored by leading global brands like IBM and NTT, at ISE 2015 in Amsterdam. Occupying booth 9-B102 in the Unified Communications Hall, Oblong Industries will showcase their unique platform to the European market for the first time.

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 as data and devices are active participants in the meeting.

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 and 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.
