We are on a mission to reduce complexity. You expect your workplace tools to be as easy to use as the products you like to use at home. When there are too many buttons to push or you can’t navigate controls, you give up.
Yet, when you walk into most rooms used for video conferencing, the screens are black and it’s not clear where – or how — to start. You generally see a combination of a set-top device or camera/speaker solution with standard displays or TVs. And typically, there’s no other integration or common standard between them beyond support for HDMI. It’s not the most welcoming experience for a team about to collaborate.
LGE and Cisco have joined forces to resolve these issues. Creating seamless integration between the industry-leading Cisco Spark Room Kit Series and LGE Professional UHD Display Series is a leap forward in simplifying the meeting experience.
Instant access and touch-based control
Our goal is that you should be able to walk into a collaboration room and get going – as simple as that, even if you’re a first-time user. Together with LGE, we’ve moved complexity behind the scenes. You can focus on the purpose of the meeting, not the logistics that make it work.
This integration begins even before you enter the room for a meeting. We’ve automated set-up and installation. And when your meeting does start, the correct HDMI port is instantly and automatically set for you.
As you enter the room, motion detection wakes up the Cisco Room Kit, LGE Display, and the Cisco Touch 10. You’re greeted with a contextual welcome screen to make it easy to start. You can control everything through the Cisco Touch 10, so there is no need to use separate remote controls or learn different user interfaces.
With the Cisco/LGE integration, display parameters are optimized for Cisco video devices through the automated installation. Resolution, frame rate, colors, and white balance are all tuned for a vivid, sensory experience.
Where do we go from here?
When you make products people enjoy using, they use them more frequently and more productively. Our goal is to continue knocking down barriers to exceptional meetings.
Cisco and LGE will continue working together to further enhance the meeting experience for companies from small to large.
We’d love to show you how the Cisco/LGE integration works. Meet us at Integrated Systems Europe 2018 in Amsterdam from February 6-9.
