It doesn’t matter what you call them. Huddle rooms. Mini rooms. Closets. What matters is that you have them--those small spaces that can accommodate just a few people. These modest rooms often go overlooked and underused, but organizations that have harnessed the power of small teams know just how crucial these rooms can be. With the right video conferencing and collaboration solutions, these rooms can become more than just ersatz offices. They can be transformed into conference rooms uniquely suited to bridging the distance between small teams and distant colleagues.
Lifesize has just announced the launch of Lifesize Dash, a video conferencing solution specifically designed for your small rooms. A software-based collaboration solution that uses WebRTC to enable video, audio and wireless screen sharing, Lifesize Dash uses a Chromebox device to integrate with USB cameras and audio devices to bring the Lifesize experience into your huddle rooms.
“Mini spaces and huddle rooms are quickly becoming the go-to location for meetings in today’s fast paced, collaborative environment,” explained Craig Malloy, CEO of Lifesize. “We designed Lifesize Dash as a way to help maximize productivity in these spaces while still offering the benefits of larger meeting room solutions. Now, companies have another option that is simple, cost-effective, and above all else, intuitive for their users.”
With the addition of the tablet application Lifesize Room Controller, you need no more than a touch of your finger to access your company directory, join a meeting, share your screen and access in-call controls.
Lifesize ran Dash through a beta test program involving more than ninety participants, and the results were overwhelmingly positive. "It's really simple to setup and use,” said Marius van Wyk, director of operations and technical at SkyGroup Communications. “The quality is surprisingly good. Great software solution for small huddle spaces."
