At ISE 2017, HARMAN Professional Solutions has introduced the AMX ACR-5100 Acendo Core Meeting Space Collaboration System which brings a new level of collaboration to the corporate enterprise as it features direct integration with Microsoft® Exchange scheduling, one-touch Skype for Business integration, native document viewers, email document sharing and more to help teams improve collaboration and maximize productivity by starting meetings quickly and easily.
The AMX Acendo Core is ideal for huddle spaces and small meeting environments. Users can easily start a meeting with the click of a button or a touch on the screen. If the meeting is scheduled as a Skype for Business meeting, participants can press a single button to join without having to search for a link in a meeting invitation, reducing wait time. Built-in document viewers and rendering allow users to present content without having to bring any devices to the room. Users start a session, navigate to their document on a USB drive, network drive, or the Web and begin the presentation. For enterprises who store documents on network drives, Acendo Core integrates natively with Microsoft Active Directory so users can authenticate into a meeting and instantly access stored content. Administrators also have the option to require authentication in order to use Core for secure document and network access.
Featuring direct integration with Microsoft® Exchange, Acendo Core provides a comprehensive scheduling system to ensure that meetings begin and end on time. Users can quickly view the current availability of a meeting space and reserve the room for the desired time. Near the end of the scheduled meeting, participants receive an on-screen notification that their meeting is about to end. This provides the opportunity to wrap up the meeting, book the room for additional time, or search for another available room if the current space is already reserved for an upcoming meeting.
“In enterprise office environments, time is a valuable resource, and outdated conference room equipment can cause unnecessary delays and frustration,” said Paul Krizan, Product Manager, Networked AV Solutions, HARMAN Professional Solutions. “Acendo Core offers a complete integrated solution that enables teams to get to the heart of their meeting as quickly as possible and make optimal use of huddle spaces and smaller meeting rooms. From document sharing to web conferences to web browsing, no other solution gets a meeting started faster or more efficiently.”
Acendo Core is thin enough to mount behind a display, with a sleek industrial design that is also well suited for display on a wall or credenza. When combined with the new AMX Acendo Vibe, an expertly designed conferencing soundbar powered by JBL audio technology and an optional integrated camera, Acendo Core forms a highly effective collaboration and conferencing solution designed for the needs of today’s modern office environments.
Harman will be showing the AMX Acendo Core along with other new products at stand #1-F6.
