Mersive, a leading provider of display management and collaboration software, today announced the newest release of the company’s award-winning wireless collaboration software, Solstice 2.1. New features were added to Solstice to simplify the wireless media sharing user experience, reduce meeting startup times, and enhance administrative controls.
Solstice software enables multiple users to connect simultaneously to a shared display using a range of devices and applications over an existing WiFi or Ethernet network. With Solstice, anyone can walk into a meeting room and instantly connect, share and control the display creating an instant collaboration session. The updated version of Solstice enables any meeting participant to quickly connect to the display in the room via a web browser on their device in a matter of seconds – even if they don’t have Solstice software installed on their device.
With Solstice 2.1 guests and occasional users can quickly and efficiently start sharing media to the display regardless of the computer platform or device type. By simply entering an on-screen address into any browser, the appropriate client software will download directly from the Solstice host PC, launch, and connect to the screen. Because the new quick-connect feature doesn’t involve a traditional install process, users can connect to the Solstice display without requiring administrative rights or permission to install software on the corporate device.
The major enhancements available in the Solstice 2.1 software release include:
- Quick-connect clients. To connect to the display in the room, users simply enter the address visible on the Solstice display into a web browser on their device.
- The new sharing panel. Upon connecting to a display, users see the new sharing panel with simple, intuitive sharing options.
- Administrative control of sharing options. The IT administrator can restrict the sharing options users see on their devices. Sharing options are configurable on a per-display basis and can be configured centrally using the Solstice Dashboard.
- Automatic display discovery configuration. Users that connect to a display by browser will automatically see all display names available for connection on the network after the initial connection.
Mersive also offers a free 30-day trial of Solstice display software, enabling an unlimited number of users to connect to the display from their laptops or mobile devices. To learn more, visit www.mersive.com/solstice.
