Userful Corporation, a provider of AV-over-IP solutions for enhanced video communication since 2015, announces a real-time interactive drag-and-drop control tool to the Visual Networking Platform.
With the new Command and Control Module, users can move and resize unlimited sources on a video wall or large display directly from a web browser -- allowing for efficient source management. Conventional control rooms require extensive setup and training to operate. The traditional software is designed for dedicated and trained operators with large budgets to purchase and maintain equipment.
Quick visual collaboration
However, many organisations have placed an emphasis on mobility and virtual communication relying on quick visual collaboration, monitoring and real-time response across many areas of their business, not just in multi-million dollar control rooms with full-time staff.
Many organisations can benefit from a control room, but clearly want more simplicity"
“Many organisations can benefit from a control room, but clearly want more simplicity, flexibility, and cost savings to deploy it,” said John Marshall, CEO of Userful. “From control rooms and operation centres to meeting rooms, data visualisation and social media monitoring, this new tool gives full power and control to operators to control visual content and significantly improve operations in the organisation. AV resellers are also looking for an entry point into the lucrative control room market that is simple to support and understand, which Userful can provide.”
Command and control module
Key features of the command and control module include:
- An entirely browser-based tool that runs on any platform; no additional software to install or manage and integrate seamlessly with current client software
- Unlimited number of sources and user licenses for increased flexibility
- Multiple operators can work simultaneously on the same display
- Can work entirely on LAN; no WAN or internet connection required for increased security
- Easy and intuitive interface that does not require additional training
Visual networking platform
Userful provides a pioneering approach to visual communications, the Visual Networking Platform. The architecture allows organisations in all industries, ranging from telecommunications to transportation, to take maximum advantage of video and other visual displays to improve operating performance and reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Products that make up the visual networking platform include software, a cloud platform, and apps that enable AV/IT teams to make visual content of any type available on a virtually unlimited number of screens. Organisations in more than 100 countries have deployed Userful solutions on more than 1 Million screens to date.
