Launching at ISE, Vision’s Freespace — recently shortlisted for an InAVate Technology 2017 award — will move to new LG hardware which hides cables more effectively, and adds Power over Ethernet (PoE) functionality so only one cable needs to be run.
The new LG device is designed for digital signage; it has a 10-inch touchscreen and runs Android. Vision’s managing director Stuart Lockhart says: “We’re rolling out ongoing improvements to Freespace, and this hardware upgrade will make it easier to install with a more professional finish. It makes Freespace the most flexible and cost-effective room booking system available.”
Freespace shows the calendar for a meeting room with the normal pinch and swipe functionality users are accustomed to. It supports all calendar systems including Office 365 and Google Apps. The Freespace app comes pre-installed on hardware and all setup is done on the calendar system server — no need for special software. and more importantly, no learning curve.
