A New Category For Video Conferencing

WARSAW, IN – February 4, 2014 – While there are many excellent solutions for high-end video conferencing, there are not any easy and inexpensive solutions that allow users to interact using peer-to-peer software, such as Lync or Skype, on a large team-to-team scale. Da-Lite will unveil for the first time in Europe during ISE a new technology that fills this gap. ViewShare® Technology creates a new category for the video conferencing market.

ViewShare Technology brings teams together with the free peer to peer software they are already using. ViewShare integrates a HD video camera directly into the weight bar of the Tensioned Advantage® Electrol® projection screen, bringing the capability to turn every conference room into a room for face-to-face brainstorming and document-sharing in real time. ViewShare also includes a tabletop speaker and microphone. Once the product is installed, users can quickly and easily share their screen and make a call by plugging in a USB cord to their computer.

“Face-to-face meetings are ideal, and tend to be more productive than conference calls. But most organizations have a limited number of meeting spaces with video conferencing capabilities,” said Melissa Rone, Senior Marketing Manager. “With a growing number of employess working remotely or from satellite offices, Da-Lite ViewSare Technology fills a gap in the market between a high-end video conferencing system and a personal computer or smart device. The simple installation and plug and play USB connectivity make it the logical choice for all the other meeting spaces in an organization.”

Other benefits of ViewShare include the ability to conceal the camera in the ceiling when it isn’t in use, and a retrofit model that allows older Advantage Projection Screens to be updated with a new format, HD surface and functionality.  The Da-Lite camera screen will feature all the benefits and projection screen surface options of a Tensioned Advantage Electrol including a plenum rating. Every Da-Lite surface is a proprietary formula, and is designed to help customers achieve the best picture possible for their image.
