Oblong Industries, Inc., has entered into a new partnership with Japan-based AV distributor Media Plus. Headquartered in Tokyo, Media Plus is one of Japan’s AV providers offering solutions for integrated AV systems, unified communications technology and conferencing solutions. The Media Plus customer list includes leading universities, public sector organizations and blue-chip corporate clients across Asia.
At its Tokyo demo center, Media Plus will provide prospective customers with the opportunity to experience Oblong’s technology solution for immersive visual collaboration, Mezzanine. Media Plus will also bring the Mezzanine experience to upcoming events and exhibitions.
“Asia is a key market for Oblong, and with our partnership with Media Plus, we look forward to bringing the multi-streaming capabilities of Mezzanine to new customers across the region,” Steve DeSisto, Director of Channel Sales at Oblong, said. “The Media Plus demo center is an interactive facility where AV professionals and end users can discover how Mezzanine supports and enhances collaborative working, and brings the ‘wow-factor’ for more engaging meetings and presentations.”
Mezzanine’s multi-screen workspace enables collaborators to share multiple sources of information simultaneously. These real-time content-sharing capabilities are combined with multiple modes of concurrent control—via laptop, tablet or gesture wand—to support multiple work styles in all connected locations. Collaborating with colleagues using Mezzanine foregrounds content and comparative data in a more fluid and natural fashion to maximize creativity, accelerate discovery and capture insights.
Shuji Ozaki, President of Media Plus, added, “Mezzanine fits perfectly within our existing portfolio, strengthening our offering to customers who make productivity a priority. With the unique properties of Mezzanine for visual collaboration, information becomes more accessible and work sessions more dynamic.”
