Wireless Collaboration


Huddle Hub goes beyond traditional wireless presentation on meeting rooms large displays: the participants can in fact send and receive presentations directly with their own devices. Any space within the company can now be used as a collaboration space: huddle and meeting rooms, offices, auditoriums and even lounges.


Almost every meeting today is a presentation and video conference meeting and Huddle Hub is the only Wireless Collaboration System that allows all meeting participants a true BYOC cable-free interaction with the room AV equipment. Participants can just walk into the meeting with their laptop, comfortably sit anywhere they like, and use their video conference software and the room AV equipment without having to connect a single cable.


Thanks to the Smart Room innovative concept, Huddle Hub allows multiple simultaneous wireless presentation sessions. A work group can connect to one of the available rooms from everywhere in the company. Huddle Hub Smart Rooms can be

reserved for huddle spaces or organizational units, as company departments, workgroups, projects and even single users.



Wireless Camera


Connect any all-in-one USB camera to Huddle Hub and enable any participant to wirelessly receive its AV streams for a videoconference session. Use any UC software on your laptop and start the meeting without changing the workflow. Any participant can share the presentation in the room and with the remote end.


The “Wireless Camera” is a unique feature of Huddle Hub that allows all meeting participants a cable-free interaction with the room AV equipment. The setup is very simple: just connect any USB video soundbar system to Huddle Hub.


Any participant in a meeting can start or join a video- conference from her or his laptop, just by selecting the Huddle Hub drivers in her or his preferred software (Zoom, Skype, Teams, WebEx, etc.), and wirelessly receive the AV streams from the video soundbar.


With the Wireless Camera feature, participants can just walk into the meeting with their laptop, comfortably sit anywhere they like, and use the room AV equipment without having to connect a single cable.


The participant who host the videoconference, receives the presentation on her or his laptop and can easily share it with the remote connected people.



Advantages


All personal devices can present and receive

Through Huddle Hub any laptop, tablet or mobile can send or receive a presentation. This improves collaboration when sitting or standing away from the room display and makes it possible when there is no display at all. Huddle Hub brings out the best of the BYOD model.


Wireless video conference

BYOC (bring your own codec) becomes reality: connect the meeting room USB camera to Huddle Hub and enable any participant to wirelessly receive its AV streams for a videoconference session. Huddle Hub supports most UC software, hardware devices and video conferencing platforms.


Multiplatform apps and client-less web app

Huddle Hub is designed for the users: the dedicated apps, available for any OSs, allow the complete control of the meeting. The friendly everyday web browser is a client-less no installation alternative to share and receive the presentation on the laptop. Power users and guests or casual users can select their preferred UI.


Huddle everywhere with the Smart Rooms

With Huddle Hub any place is a meeting room. Smart Rooms allow effective team collaboration even in not equipped or lightly equipped spaces, perfectly matching the modern workflow. They can be reserved for specific huddle spaces, teams, projects and even single users.



Scenarios


Meeting Rooms

Sometimes you are too far away or facing sideways from the screen on which the content is shown, which might be a spreadsheet. Huddle Hub’s ability to reproduce the content of the screen on your device provides a more natural and comfortable

meeting environment.


Huddle Rooms

Huddle rooms are usually lightly equipped rooms: a table, some charis, a telephone and a display are all you find there. You don’t need anything else. Just connect your device (laptop, tablet or smartphone) to Huddle Hub and start the meeting.


Informal Spaces

The design of work environments is changing. More and more people find themselves collaborating in cafes, hotel lobbies, lounge areas, and other open concept spaces. Huddle Hub is the only solution that transforms such spaces for effective collaboration.


Auditoriums

Huddle Hub is also designed for education, training and large auditoriums, where a single screen is not effective enough for everybody to see. Huddle Hub offers the opportunity to give everyone a perfect view, wirelessly duplicating the main screen

on participants.
