AV technology’s Peerless-AV announced its alliance with Mersive Technologies, a leading provider of software-based collaboration solutions for corporate, education and government markets. Close research and development with the Mersive team has resulted in the introduction of a new mounting solution from Peerless-AV designed specifically for the Solstice Pod Collaboration Platform. The partnership looks positively towards the future and preparation for return to work, which means implementation of safe workplace strategies and meeting spaces.
“At Mersive we like to forge an alliance when complementary, and we’re excited to be able to join forces with Peerless-AV on this project,” says Jeff Meyer, General Manager for EMEA, Mersive Technologies. “Everyone realises these are challenging and unprecedented times, but while individual work may be possible from anywhere right now, it’s collaboration that will bring workers back to the office. Paired solutions such as this from Mersive and Peerless-AV are facilitating the VC trend, and with the added security the mount incorporates it’s an ideal choice for any workspace.”
Mersive Solstice allows users to stream content from their laptops and mobile devices to the in-room display over existing IT networks. Solstice also enables remote participants to join via any major video conferencing service and supports room audio and video to deliver a complete, flexible room solution.
The new ACC-MSP Solstice Pod Mount has been developed as a secure, versatile, low profile support solution for installation of the Pod direct to wall, table, service rack or attached to multiple product options from Peerless-AV, including the SmartMount range of wall mount, trolleys and stands, Modular Series and the VCM580 VC solution.
The mount allows mounting at just 34mm in depth for a discreet, aesthetically pleasing installation, and its gloss black finish matches the look and feel of the Solstice Pod. The design of the mount is enclosed so there is no interference to the unit but with sufficient ventilation and easy access to parts for servicing. The mount has a 200 VESA for universal fitment.
A key feature of the ACC-MSP mount is the integrated security, the most important aspect for Mersive since the Solstice Pod is intended for public environments. The mount has an anti-tamper, interlocking cage which screws to the mount, or install surface, meaning the Pod cannot be removed unless the mount is dismantled. For added peace of mind, the mount also features a secure tab, which is compatible with nano Kensington Locks.
“This new product launch represents a strengthening of our expertise in the VC sector and a new alliance with a leading software media company,” comments Keith Dutch, Managing Director – EMEA, Peerless-AV. “The team at Peerless-AV worked closely with Mersive to design and develop a solution for the Solstice Pod that makes an organisation’s life easier when selecting VC equipment. They can choose from a range of Peerless-AV products to attach to, making this a truly attractive and versatile solution.”
