Synthesis Collaboration
Synthesis provides the user interface and collaboration capabilities
offered in Prysm’s Cascade series of video walls and displays. Present,
share, move, resize, and annotate all types of content through
on-screen touch, PCs or mobile devices. Simultaneously display and
interact with multiple live inputs including video, telepresence, and web
apps. Configurable projects and workspaces allow teams to share the
use of a Cascade system with other groups, save their work between
sessions, and pick up where they left off when they next meet.
Collaboration Features
▸▸ Media and File Display – Simultaneously display multiple media
objects, document files, web browsers, live video sources (TV, video
conference, streaming media players), information from in-room
devices (smart-phones, tablets, PCs), and information from remote
PCs. 1
▸▸ Real-time, Multi-site Collaboration – All media objects uploaded
to the cloud server are available for collaboration by up to 10
Cascade systems. Changes to the workspace content by any user is
replicated and synchronized across all other Cascade systems in the
Synthesis connects to a Prysm cloud collaboration service to store
content on the cloud and mirror the content to geographically
distributed teams for simultaneous collaboration. Synthesis
integrates with customers’ existing collaboration applications and
infrastructure to deliver higher returns on IT and facility investments.
Synthesis state-of-the-art collaboration software runs on the
collaboration appliance. The collaboration appliance takes AV input
from multiple content sources and provides local storage, network
connectivity, and AV output to the Cascade video wall or display.
