Today we are delighted to announce our latest product, DisplayNote Launcher, a software based solution that uses sensor technology to allow people to use their smartphone to turn any shared meeting room display into their own temporary Office 365 device.
Today, screens in meeting rooms are used by more people, across different departments and for different purposes. Users demand secure access to their meetings, content and preferred applications but this is increasingly difficult in today’s multi-purpose spaces.
DisplayNote is changing the way people interact with these screens by giving them temporary, secure access to their individual calendars, content and calls by using their smartphone to personalise the screen.
“We believe that the future of meeting room collaboration is A.I. driven with a person using their own trusted device to identify themselves and personalise their experience Our new Launcher software has begun to make this a reality for users of meeting room displays”, said DisplayNote CEO, Paul Brown.
Joining us on our mission will be some of the world's biggest manufacturers of touch displays, starting with Newline who will embed the technology on their Windows based displays.
Launcher will be available in Q3 and its initial focus will be on organisations that use Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business and Office 365 with the company stating that they have ambitious plans in place for further integrations.
Launcher is a Windows 10 application that provides a locked down kiosk interface with a one touch experience for the user on a shared meeting room display.
Launcher includes a mobile app that uses a tokenised authentication protocol built on top of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to enable any smartphone to passively and securely emit a signal that represents the user.
Users create their identity within a DisplayNote Launcher app using an Office 365 account and that app communicates to the Launcher software on the touch display or mini PC.
Once connected, users get temporary access to their One Drive, Skype for Business/Teams calls and personal company calendar applications on the meeting room display. When a user disconnects these applications revert to a room state with no data stored on the display.
