Overview

Oblong Industries' innovative technologies and solutions are transforming the way people work, collaborate and communicate. Oblong's work was the inspiration for the computers depicted in the films Minority Report and Iron Man and has its roots in more than two decades of research at MIT. Oblong believes that the era of one human, one mouse, one screen, one machine is giving way the what's next: a fully shared and unified experience among multiple users, devices, screens, and locations, via a groundbreaking spatial interface.

This spatial interface is key to the experience of Mezzanine, Oblong's flagship product for conferencing and collaboration. By enabling all participants in a meeting to easily and dynamically contribute multiple content and data streams to a shared digital workspace all at the same time and from several office locations, insights are more easily revealed, teams are more productive, and decisions are more effective..

Mezzanine 

   

Mezzanine is a video collaboration solution that improves distributed work processes by linking workplace locations and teams together with their tools and content.

Most collaboration tools limit users to working with one document, file, or device at a time. With Mezzanine, multiple users can interactively share their laptop, smart phone, and tablet screen content and applications with anyone, at the same time.

We call this experience Infopresence(tm). It's the ability for team members to bring their devices and data together in a shared display workspace - and it's the end of geographic location as a barrier to collaboration.

Mezzanine brings unique innovations to video collaboration:


  • Next generation user interface: Mezzanine's spatial wands enable any contributor, regardless of location, to interactively present, scale, and position videos and graphics within the Mezzanine workspace, even from one display wall to another.
  • Infopresence: Mezzanine provides exactly what traditional conference and telepresence rooms lack: an effective way to engage multiple users in different locations with their content, devices and data simultaneously.
  • Multi-device Collaboration: Mezzanine allows up to ten devices per room to share their screens together at once, improving real-time collaboration. As a result, team members can spend more time swapping ideas, and less time swapping video cables.
