Vaddio is now shipping BaseStation — a meeting room solution that enables participants to use their own personal applications on their own devices (tablets, laptops and network computers.)
“It has become a norm to have your tablet, laptop or smartphone with you when you enter the meeting room,” said Vaddio’s CEO, Ed Ellett. “Mobile computing has defined how we work in the enterprise — mobile users want to share their content and collaboration tools with their own devices in the meeting room to local and remote participants. BaseStation enables the user to do exactly that. Any app on your device can now be used in your meeting room – it’s that simple.”
Users can share PowerPoint or Keynote presentations, participate in audio conferences and engage in high-definition videoconferencing using Skype, Microsoft Lync, WebEx or any other UC application of their choice. BaseStation allows any application to be shared or collaborated in the meeting room.
Designed for small huddle rooms, BaseStation includes the necessary peripherals to create a high-quality, presentation and group collaboration experience. The system connects to an existing monitor via HDMI and includes an 82-degree wide horizontal field-of-view high-definition camera and a control interface with built-in microphones that connect to your device via HDMI, VGA or USB.
BaseStation has the ability to work with any OS and any computer application that supports USB. As a result, users can truly plug and play their devices and use the collaboration tools of their choice to present, collaborate and educate in their meeting room.
