InFocus announces its Mondopad 2.0 all-in-one video conferencing and collaboration system that connects people and ideas
Dual Stream, Dual Screen Video Calls and Better BYOD Casting Connectivity All Part of New InFocus Mondopad
PORTLAND, Ore. – June 2, 2015 — Making video conferencing and group-work efficient across multiple locations, collaboration technology pioneer InFocus Corporation (www.infocus.com) today released Mondopad 2.0. The new Mondopad enhances the capabilities of the first ever large-format, all-in-one, video conferencing touchscreen collaboration device for the conference room, classroom, distance education center and multi-point office. In addition, Mondopad 2.0 offers new features that make sharing, annotating, archiving and overall collaboration easier, particularly between multiple locations.
The InFocus Mondopad is a 57-inch, 70-inch and 80-inch diagonal 1080p, large-format, multi-point touch display that’s easy to see anywhere in the room, powered by an on-board PC with open standard technology that’s compatible with Microsoft Office and Intel. Mondopad 2.0 offers on-board storage and has a built-in collaboration software suite.
“When we introduced Mondopad in 2011, we were the first to introduce a full-service collaboration system designed to improve work efficiency. With its built-in business-class video calling and a sharable digital whiteboard, it became the giant touchscreen solution that everyone wanted in their conference room, classroom or remote office,” said Raymond Yu, InFocus president. “We continue to add features based on customer feedback, adding more than a hundred improvements in Mondopad 2.0 making it the ideal tool to replace the archaic equipment found in conference and classrooms. With InFocus Mondopad, customers can expect a single solution to do everything they need to be efficient, effective and productive.”
Like the original Mondopad, Mondopad 2.0 is a SIP/H.323 video calling endpoint that uniquely integrates data presentations, whiteboarding, remote PC viewing, video, casting from tablets or smartphones, and puts interactive data into a video call like never before. With Dual Stream technology, Mondopad users can not only share and view data but can also see video meeting participants, never losing the benefits of face-to-face communication, such as non-verbal cues and body language.
Mondopad includes one year of InFocus 121-Basic video calling service, which supports two-way calling with SIP, H.323, H.239, and Microsoft Lync systems. InFocus 121-Premium enables four-way calling. When paired with an InFocus ConX Video Meeting solution, users can combine any combination up to 25 different callers using SIP, H.323. Lync, a Web browser and even standard (PSTN) phone lines.
Also new to the InFocus Mondopad 2.0 is its ability to pair with a second touchscreen, such as the JTouch, InFocus’ large-format touch-enabled digital display, to create an even larger interactive area for file annotation and whiteboarding. With it you can run dual applications, such as a video conferencing and PowerPoint files simultaneously on separate screens. When using dual touch displays, multi-tasking is easy – simply swap content from one touchscreen to the other.
Unlike any other interactive collaboration display, InFocus equipped Mondopad with its LightCast technology, to wirelessly cast content from a notebook, smartphone or tablet directly to the Mondopad display and control Windows devices via touch.
“Mondopad 2.0 provides more options for connecting users to Mondopad,” continued Yu. “Now people can easily share images, ideas and presentations on the Mondopad screen and control it from their personal devices.”
Microsoft Windows applications run on Mondopad 2.0 in responsive touch mode including Microsoft Office suite, which comes standard.
In addition to the video conferencing, dual screen and bring your own device (BYOD) enhancements, Mondopad 2.0 comprises many other features to make collaboration and sharing easier and more powerful. Some additional feature enhancements include:
One touch Dropbox cloud-based file storage
- Multiple camera support, including InFocus’ recommended PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) camera
