DisplayNote and Magewell to enhance meeting room flexibility

DisplayNote, the meeting room collaboration technology company, has announced a new collaboration with Magewell, a developer of innovative video interface and IP workflow solutions. The new alliance brings together DisplayNote’s easy launch for video calls with Magewell’s plug-and-play AV signal capture capabilities to achieve increased functionality and flexibility in hybrid meeting spaces.

DisplayNote’s Launcher bypasses the drawbacks of traditional meeting room technology and modernises these spaces by supporting today’s most popular video conferencing tools. Magewell's plug-and-play USB Capture Gen 2 devices let users bring HDMI or SDI video signals into Zoom, Skype, Teams, GoToMeeting, and other popular conferencing software. The integration of Launcher with Magewell devices allows any user to take full advantage of the joint solution and enjoy a feature-rich hybrid meeting experience.

Ed Morgan, COO of DisplayNote said, “we are delighted to be working alongside Magewell to enhance our product offering. The video capture expertise of Magewell gives Launcher users the ability to seamlessly access a video input from the meeting room display. This facility complements the overall product feature offering of Launcher, as well as making the employee experience more useful and enjoyable.”

With DisplayNote Launcher installed, users of hybrid meeting spaces can access the full range of video conferencing platforms used by their organisation clients and start or join meetings and calls with just one touch. From the Launcher home screen, the user can then select an external source and use that within the Teams or Zoom call for example. At the end of the call, the Automatic Cleanup feature clears the user's footprint by removing any sign-in information and clearing any browsing history. This keeps all data safe and secure and meets the corporate and IT admin requirement need for simplicity and security.

Amy Zhou, Director of Sales at Magewell added, “We are excited to collaborate with DisplayNote to further improve hybrid meetings for their users. Our USB Capture devices make it exceptionally simple to bring AV sources such as cameras and attendee laptops into almost any software application, and the combination of our hardware with DisplayNote’s Launcher is expected to significantly enhance the user experience for DisplayNote’s customers.”
