Happy Friday, ISE 2017! Things are winding down today, but it’s been an amazing week. Show organizers say there were more than 70,000 attendees this year, compared to 65,000 last year (and we thought that was big!). We gave hundreds of demos of our new features (which include Live Source Streaming, a new Quick Start welcome screen and Wireless Screen Sharing) and third-party display-hardware compatibility at the Prysm booth, and were thrilled by the reactions. We think Prysm Visual Workplace helps us work smarter together. It was great to find out that other people agree. We also did two dozen press interviews and served a couple thousand cups of coffee, doing our part to keep the crowds energetic.
It's been fun sharing this week with you, and we wish you safe travels. Below are some more pictures from the Prysm booth. Visit our Flickr album to see them all.
Walking the show floor at ISE this year is a real workout! Do your feet hurt? Take a few minutes to relax with a glass of wine or a cold beer at the Prysm Café at stand #11-B130. We look forward to meeting you.

Prysm has a lot to announce today, so we'll just jump right into it:
- First off, we're proud to share that Prysm Visual Workplace is now compatible with third-party displays, and we'll be demonstrating this new functionality in our booth (stand #11 - B130).
"The solution is a win-win for all involved,” said Ira M. Weinstein, senior analyst and partner at Wainhouse Research. “This option allows channel partners to add value by selecting and installing display systems designed for specific situations and environments. The real winners, however, will be the end-user customers, as they can now utilize Prysm’s collaboration technology with their existing meeting-room investments, saving both time and money.”
“The real-time collaboration benefits of Prysm Visual Workplace across any device and location is very appealing to our customers,” said Dale Bottcher, senior vice president for Prysm partner AVI-SPL. “Having the opportunity to utilize Prysm Visual Workplace with or without Prysm-branded displays offers a flexibility our customers demand. These types of choices enable us to help our customers maximize their current technology investment and enhance their team-collaboration experiences.”
The Prysm Application Suite (PAS) can be enabled on a variety of commercial / industrial-grade LCD displays. To deliver the best results, third-party displays are recommended to be 4K or UHD resolution LCDs and offer a Display Port 1.2 and a USB 2.0 based touch sensor interface.
- We are also excited to announce three great new features:.
- Live Source Streaming allows all participants using Prysm Visual Workplace, no matter where they are located or what device they are using, to view and edit device-centric content displayed in a Prysm workspace. Any device displaying content, such as laptops, mobile devices, in-room PCs, video conference systems, Apple TVs, document cameras, security cameras, etc., can be integrated into a meeting, while changes and edits can be viewed in real time by Prysm meeting participants.
- Prysm Quick Start enables employees to access Prysm Visual Workplace without logging in, providing a fast and convenient tool that enables teams and individuals to quickly brainstorm or capture thoughts from an ad-hoc meeting. Using Quick Start, participants can pair devices via a wired or wireless connection to engage with content, or to sketch and capture ideas using Prysm’s digital-whiteboard capabilities.
- Wireless Screen Sharing permits users to wirelessly and securely display a laptop, tablet or mobile device to a Prysm display. Prysm users can annotate, take screenshots and manipulate content displayed by these devices. During multi-location team meetings, a Prysm user can ensure that all actions within a workspace are mirrored in real time to all participants.
You can get a demonstration of these new features, which are expected to be available by the end of Q1 2017, at our booth (stand #11 - B130).
It's not too late to book an appointment at our booth. We'd love to share a cup of coffee with you and talk one on one.
