As you’re already aware, our agile team at DisplayNote Technologies is constantly adapting and updating our solutions to keep up with customer needs and recommendations.
We are especially proud of our new update, Montage 2.3, which puts security and user experience at its focus. This update is particularly suitable for large enterprises: as well as hardware, Montage also comes as a software-first option, making it a more scalable solution for enterprise. On top of this, we have a management portal coming soon, which will allow organisations to manage and update all their Montage solutions from one place.
Our latest update to Montage takes another giant leap forward in terms of video performance. We’ve created our own protocol which has put low-latency as the number one priority for Montage. At the core of this, is a new super-fast screen grabber which produces more frames per second, lower latency and higher quality video streaming.
At DisplayNote, security is always the first thing we consider. New functionality allows administrators to take control of how meetings are run. This functionality, when turned on, means users will only be able to join a meeting through the local network, and not the cloud. Even though our data is encrypted at Enterprise level for the cloud, this capability gives organisations additional piece of mind, and if sharing extremely sensitive data, may feel reassured if this functionality is enabled.
Montage is now available as a software-only solution, a hardware solution, or a combination of both. You decide which works best for you. If you already have existing hardware in your meeting spaces, you don’t need to add more clutter – you can simply deploy the software version. If you don’t have existing hardware, our Montage box is super small and compact, with all the power, performance and security of the software. With these options, we can provide more flexibility and choice to our customers.
Montage 2.3 also sees improvements on the video conferencing side of Montage. Montage will allow connecting cameras to be changed during a meeting with no need to create a new meeting. In addition, cameras can be unplugged and plugged in during a meeting with no adverse effect. Audio settings can also be modified during a meeting – providing an even better video conferencing experience.
Manage all your Montage devices and software from the cloud
Soon to go live, is our management portal, which makes it possible to manage every Montage-enabled room via the cloud. From here, IT admin can update Montage, change settings, rename rooms, and turn off Montage.
