Minimize meeting problems and collaborate with CoreTouch

1200 801 Level 3 Audiovisual

Have you ever had those meetings when you would bring your laptop or tablet but couldn’t connect it to a projector, monitor, or any other kind of peripheral? With a presentation ready to go, you wasted so much time trying to figure out how to make the technology work. It can either transform a meeting into a complete frustration or really make it valuable.

Some of the most common meeting problems companies have are trouble with starting and finishing a meeting on time. Factors like failing technology, silent participants and collaboration dominators often result in a conducted meeting with no decisions made. The results of this survey show that 45% of participants most of the time leave a meeting without a clear understanding of their responsibilities. Also, 47% of workers react stressfully to tech malfunction. With Layer Logic’s CoreTouch, Today, we have a device that’s both easy to use and simplifies collaboration and sharing.

Improved Collaboration

CoreTouch is an appliance that enables collaboration to displays of all kinds from a user’s preferred device. One centralized appliance provides up to four connections for users, each device sending its share of data to the display in real-time. When a meeting starts on time, you get so much work done, and everyone present manages to participate and present their information. You will walk out with an overwhelming sense of productivity. This is rarely the case in small and mid-sized organizations.

Share Like You Had Never Shared Before

Regardless of the type of device or its operating system, CoreTouch provides quick connectivity without any security or software updates to address. Cables connected to a smart device or laptop and to the display provide a wired connection that is more secure than a wireless one, addressing several common security concerns.

Intuitive Touchscreen Display

Because there is no need to install software or configure it, CoreTouch can be controlled in several ways. When all the devices are plugged in, you can jump from full- to quad-screen with simple swipe gestures using a smartphone as a device or an interactive touch screen as your display. You can actively participate in a quadrant, sharing your data through a wireless presentation system. Also, you can use a tablet or smartphone to choose which device is displayed on the screen at a given moment, thus controlling the presenters.

CoreTouch can be mounted on any monitor or HID capable touch device. Layer Logic’s certification process has tested touchscreen displays and certified the following ones to work with CoreTouch: BenQ, LG, Phillips, Samsung, Vivitek, Sharp NEC, Cleartouch, and Christie.

In the past, you used to hassle with all kinds of tech equipment and worried whether you would be able to play a simple 2-minute video. Now, you just throw your laptop in the bag and go on with your day without any worries that a failure to connect will happen again. Smooth and coherent integration can be complicated to achieve. The result of using CoreTouch can be simply getting more work done during meetings and collaborating more quickly and effectively.

Top Five Ways to Trick Out Your Boardroom

992 404 Level 3 Audiovisual

Have yourself a boardroom with a pretty table and need to figure out how to make AV fit into your space?

Here are some boardroom automated control ideas for all brain types:

 

1. The Collaborator

You like to get people involved? We get it. Let us find you the right collaboration engine for you to share one, two, four, or even more sources on a single or multiple displays for your boardroom.

  • A little extra something: We can even give you the ability to moderate what sources are allowed on screen, choose your favorite collaborator to feature full screen, and mute the guy from HR that just seems to be sharing cat videos on his iPad.

 

2. The Minimalist

So you want simplicity and just want things to work? Why not let the control system work in the background? Install an occupancy sensor and tie it to the control system. This will allow the system to turn things on when walk in and automatically shut things down when you are gone.

  • A little extra something: Don’t know where the presenter will be sitting in the boardroom? Easy, install multiple input locations around the boardroom table and the system can automatically switch to wherever you plug in.

 

3. The Demonstrator

Do you feel at peace with a pen and a whiteboard during meetings? Why not install an annotation engine into your board room and draw to your hearts content. You can even save what you have annotated and distribute to your meeting participants. Annotation can be engaged or shutoff at the click of a button on the control system.

  • A little extra something: For the stand-up desk employees, you can install touch right into the main display at the front of the room and let them go to town. That’s right, even that 98 inch display you have been eyeing has a touch enabled counterpart to it. For the “I’m fine right where I am” employees, how about a touch monitor on the board table? Anything you draw shows up on any assigned screen in the room.

 

4. The Audiophile

Forget the 150 inch LED video wall at the front of the room, your heart is connected directly to your ears. How about high quality line array speakers at the front of the space for program audio? In fact, lets throw in a low profile ceiling mounted sub-woofer as well. Fully adjustable and controllable via the control system. Do you want to share your PowerPoint or just watch Gladiator today?

    • A little extra something: Doing conferencing in your board room? How about auto-mixing low profile microphones mounted in the table? They can even be programmed to light green when they are on and red when they are muted. Perhaps you would install a snake skin wallpaper before EVER letting ANYONE drill into your table? Ceiling microphones it is then. We can even make them drop from the ceiling when conferencing is engaged. It’s cool. Trust us.

 

5. The Long-Distance Relationship

Need to have a conversation with someone but text just doesn’t seem appropriate? How about installing a video conferencing system into your boardroom? Skype for business, Webex, GoToMeeting, traditional Polycom/Cisco conferencing is all at your fingertips. Not to mention without the need for thirteen remote controls. Just grab the touch panel and engage with a single or even multiple other users at the same time.

  • A little extra something: Why not save the best for last? Install automated camera tracking and control. When you talk, the control system finds you and frames you as the presenter. When Fred talks on the other end of the room, the system switches to a wide shot of the board table until the 2nd camera finds Fred. When it does, boom, Fred is front and center. It’s like a magic trick, but with less wands, and more 1’s and 0’s.

Would you like to have your cake and eat it too? No problem, let us combine all of your favorite control features and functions and create something truly amazing for your space.
