ISE 2019 was a huge success!
Thank you to everyone who visited us at ISE earlier this month as you were a part of the nearly 30% year-over-year increase in our booth attendance despite overall ISE attendance remaining flat (click here to see images from the show). Aside from increased booth attendance, our Solstice 4.0 / Gen3 Pod announcement and Kepler garnering a Best of Show award were the highlights. Kepler is a powerful deployment monitoring and meeting analytics product that provides insights on Solstice-enabled room utilization and content sharing that enable higher ROI. Based on Kepler data in 2018, for example, we know that meetings taking place in huddle spaces are 34% shorter and involve 22% more shared content than those occurring in traditional conference rooms.
The Latest from The Visualist
Sights and Sounds from ISE
I’m back from ISE Amsterdam and straight to the Blake Street R&D studio at Mersive. I’ve returned from the world’s largest AV show. For my readers that aren’t as familiar with “AV” – it stands for Audio Visual. The world of AV rarely evokes images of cutting-edge technology – it’s more likely to bring forward images of the old “AV cart” that made its way through the halls of our schools – covered in cables and outdated projectors. At best, it reminds us of our home theatre, stereo system, or at-best, home automation. This is only because AV used to be defined by hardware. All of that has changed. I’m energized by what I saw and heard at the show, and I can’t help but think that AV has become something altogether more exciting – the frontier of technology that’s defining how we experience our environment.

Employee Spotlight: Meet John Razes, Director of Technical Services
What is your role at Mersive and what do you do?
I’m the Director of Technical Services. I lead our Sales Engineering group which is a global, field-based team tasked with a number of pre- and post-sale duties. It’s a smart, diverse bunch and, honestly, my favorite part about working at Mersive. We all have a relatively similar skill set, but our backgrounds are anything but. Everyone brings a unique point of view to the table, and we are all constantly learning from each other which creates a great dynamic and helps make us the best team in the world.
Before working at Mersive, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?
Prior to Mersive, I worked in Auckland, New Zealand for a few years. I was working on a software dev team as a Business Application Analyst for a huge construction company. It’s a beautiful country, and the people I met along the way was the highlight. There were some hilarious cultural exchanges, and it was a fantastic learning experience both personally and professionally. Continue reading…
What Your Meetings Say About Your Company Culture
Every organization has a culture that encompasses its values and behaviors whether the organization strives to cultivate it or not. Forward-thinking enterprises take time to define and reinforce an understanding of their culture. A strong, clear, and consistent culture can increase job satisfaction and productivity by giving a workforce a sense of purpose. The inverse, however, is also true. An inconsistent and muddled company culture can undermine workers and weaken the organization.
An organization’s culture is reflected in a myriad of ways including the office environment, the company’s mission, values, ethics and even how meetings are handled. An organization’s meeting style may not always reflect the culture its leadership wants to set. Consider what the following elements of a meeting say about your workplace environment.

Solstice Ink Redefines Wireless Annotation
Meeting collaboration tools have become a familiar fixture in conference rooms, allowing meeting participants to share content from their screens in the course of presenting or discussing a topic. As a discussion progresses, other attendees may want to highlight or annotate portions of the shared content. The problem, until now, is that existing annotation tools have failed to offer a truly collaborative experience.
Currently, no annotation solution provides a user experience that is intuitive, rich, and inclusive. Users want a solution as intuitive as interacting with a touch screen, as multi-functional as annotation toolbars, and as easy as staying seated and marking up a hard copy with a pen. Solstice Ink does just that. Continue reading…
