Meeting room collaboration systems provider DisplayNote will debut its Launcher software at ISE 2020. Compatible with the leading videoconferencing platforms including Zoom, GoToMeeting, BlueJeans, Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams, Launcher’s presence detection technology allows meeting participants to use their own devices and turn each session into a secure, personalised and collaborative experience.
Ed Morgan, chief operating officer at DisplayNote, said: “We previewed an early version of Launcher to the systems integration community at InfoComm Orlando in the summer, and it received an enthusiastic reception. Almost everyone who plans, designs and implements enterprise and meeting room connectivity and collaboration solutions is now working with Microsoft 365 in some capacity. As such, new hardware and software integration solutions are emerging that improve the user experience. With its next generation interactive features, Launcher is right at the forefront of this trend and I’m looking forward to introducing it to the global audience at ISE.”
DisplayNote developed Launcher in response to the increasing numbers of end users wanting secure access to their preferred applications in shared, multi-purpose spaces. A Windows 10 application, the Launcher mobile app uses a ‘tokenised’ authentication protocol built on top of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to enable any smartphone to passively and securely emit a signal that represents the user on the shared display.
Offering ‘one-touch’ operation, users create their identity within the Launcher app using an Office 365 account, and the app communicates with the Launcher software on the touch display or mini PC. Once connected, users get temporary access to use their One Drive, Microsoft Teams, Skype and personal company calendar applications on the main meeting room display. For the convenience, users can launch URLs from the home screen and import and export personal settings for secure and speedy deployment. When a user disconnects these applications revert to a room state with no data stored on the display.
