Overview

digital signage for meeting rooms

Power over Ethernet Room Signs

You’ve installed a digital signage system. You’ve mastered your room scheduling application. But there’s still a piece missing – how do they fit together?

Visix is the first digital signage company to offer a full line of room signs with scheduling options that tie it all together.

Whether you want to simply show room schedules or employ a fully-integrated office hoteling and digital signage solution, our diverse room sign line lets you schedule space from any location at any time and keep your entire workforce in sync.

Since all of our room signs can be fed by a single scheduling application, space booking is the same whether people are in a home office, on the road or within an office hoteling environment. The calendar is consistent and up-to-date everywhere, no matter who changes it or from where.

Our room signs support data from

  • Microsoft Exchange and Exchange 365
  • EMS by Dean Evans & Associates
  • Google Calendars
  • R25/25Live by CollegeNET
  • Delphi by Newmarket

Touch Room Signs

digital sign first, room booking second

MeetingMinder™ Meeting Room Sign FeaturesTouch room signs are perfect for organizations that want to use room signs as an extension of their digital signage. Our powerful AxisTV content management software lets you create, import, schedule and publish a wide range of digital media and mass alerts, in addition to room and event schedules, to your meeting room signs.

These interactive signs display room reservations from a variety of data sources, while allowing you to create a walk-up reservation with only a few touches to the screen. You’ll see room availability at a glance with our large on-screen status light, and availability lights on each side that shine GREEN
when the room is available and RED when it’s not.

Our Touch room signs support data from:

  • Microsoft Exchange and Exchange 365
  • EMS by Dean Evans & Associates
  • Google Calendars
  • R25/25Live by CollegeNET
  • Delphi by Newmarket
  • Text file import

 
To schedule the room, just touch “Reserve” and set the time and meeting length. Optionally, a four-digit PIN can be set to protect your reservation from being erroneously canceled or modified. Walk-up reservations are immediately shared with your calendar application to avoid double-bookings, and can be limited to within a few hours of the current time, to the same day, or to a number of days from the current date.

Both our 10- and 15-inch Touch room signs can be surface mounted or recessed. Power over Ethernet allows you to run one Ethernet cable to the meeting room sign to supply both power and data, so you don’t have to worry about concealing power bricks.

For rooms where walk-up reservations aren’t appropriate, any Touch room sign can run in non-interactive mode so that digital signage content and schedules are displayed full-screen.

Connect Room Signs

room booking first, digital sign second

MeetingMinder™ Meeting Room Sign FeaturesOur 10-inch Connect room sign is the ideal option to show schedules outside each meeting room and allow people to book space on the go. You’ll see room availability at a glance with side lights that shine GREEN when the room is available and RED when it’s not.

This versatile display shows data from:

  • Microsoft Exchange
  • EMS by Dean Evans & Associates
  • Google Calendars

 
Use our full-screen application to view room availability with day and week calendar views. The interactive screen lets you book space right at the room sign, and those reservations are immediately shared with your calendar application to avoid double-bookings.

If you don’t want to limit yourself to schedules only, Connect provides the option to pull in digital signage messages via RSS. As long as your content management application will export an RSS image playlist, you can show those messages on your Connect signs.

Just like our Touch signs, Connect signs can be surface mounted or recessed, and have Power over Ethernet capabilities, so you don’t have to worry about concealing power bricks.

RoomBoard™

touchscreen meeting management

Whether you’re looking for a meeting, or looking for a place to meet – our interactive RoomBoard™ gives you a robust self-service room management solution that can stand alone or easily integrate with our MeetingMinder™ Touch room signs.

RoomBoard™ is a one-stop touchscreen wayfinding solution for large screens that shows space availability, maps event listings to rooms, and can even allow room booking at the RoomBoard™.

Visix RoomBoard™: Interactive Room Management

  • Combine digital signage, interactive wayfinding and schedules
  • Direct staff and visitors to their meeting rooms
  • Book from Exchange, EMS or MeetingMinder™ Touch room signs
  • Include full-kiosk support for booking at the RoomBoard™
  • Integrate mobile tools with QR codes and SMS
  • Customize the design with your logo, colors and map

 
All RoomBoards™ are custom-built with your logo, colors and map. Maps are interactive and room availability is instantly recognizable with available rooms in GREEN and occupied rooms in RED. The number of available meeting rooms is also displayed prominently at the top of the screen to let meeting organizers know their options at a glance.

Event schedules and room availability are fed by a scheduling application like Exchange or EMS, and we can build in custom controls on screen to allow viewers to schedule space right at the RoomBoard™.

Point-to-point directions can be provided to visitors, and content blocks can play back standard digital signage content. All of our RoomBoard™ designs include visual paths from the “You Are Here” icon to the target destination, and scrolling tools at the bottom of the screen make our designs ADA compliant.

Clients can integrate the RoomBoard™ with MeetingMinder™ Touch room signs – all being fed by a central scheduling application and all allowing scheduling at the display – for an enterprise-wide scheduling solution.
