Oblong, Cisco and LG packaged in ScanSource bundle
Mezzanine developer Oblong has signed an agreement with ScanSource in a move that sees the collaboration company offer its platform through distribution to the pro AV market for the first time.
The ScanSource bundle will package Mezzanine with commercial displays from LG Electronics and Webex Room Kit Series from Cisco.
ScanSource customers will have access to the entire Mezzanine product family, including the Mezzanine 600 Series for larger conference rooms and briefing centres and the Mezzanine 200 Series solution for smaller teams and spaces.
Brian Cuppett, senior vice president, ScanSource KBZ, said: “End users are continuing to look for innovative UC solutions, and Mezzanine delivers a content-rich workplace collaboration experience that enables resellers to meet this growing demand.
“We look forward to providing this content-centric conferencing solution, in addition to support, training and services for our reseller partners’ continued success.”
Initially, the product bundle will be offered in two sizes mapped to Oblong’s Mezzanine 200 Series with dual LG displays for smaller team collaboration, and the Mezzanine 600 series for more immersive environments.
Finn Helge Lunde, director of product management at Cisco, said: “The introduction of this new product bundle means that it is now easier to specify and install a state-of-the-art system for immersive visual collaboration utilizing our popular Webex Meetings and Teams platforms with Webex Room Kits to bring people together.”
Clark Brown, vice president of digital signage at LG Business Solutions, added: “LG commercial displays, bundled by ScanSource with Oblong and Cisco technologies, exploit the rapid expansion of information, graphic and data, creating new ways for people to meet and collaborate.”
