Meeting Canvas 3.0 multi-user software transforms
static meetings into evolving and interactive discussions, including BYOD
participation for dynamic teamwork

Marshalltown, Iowa:

Mechdyne Corporation, an advanced technology powerhouse
and pioneer in immersive display systems, today announced that its
Software Services business unit has introduced Meeting Canvas 3.0. Meeting Canvas is a software platform that enables
multidisciplinary collaboration and data-driven decision making. Meeting Canvas
unifies access to content and data sources. It presents them in contextual
ways, across any display system, making Meeting Canvas the ultimate collaboration tool
for design thinking and agile project management teams.

This collaboration tool simultaneously integrates multiple sources of
content, enables digital sticky notations and dynamic mark-ups in real-time,
and caters to continuous team workflow activities. Meeting Canvas enables
strategy teams to brainstorm, analyze, and implement new processes in less
time. It supports product design teams as they innovate to develop new, higher-quality
designs, faster. It facilitates researchers who must analyze multiple,
contextual datasets, collaborate, and annotate insights.

“With Meeting Canvas from Mechdyne, we no longer come away from meetings
with stacks of sticky notes and whiteboards that can’t be erased,” said a
design director at a large automotive company. “The software tool makes it easy
for us to share content from multiple sources without bringing in tech support,
and it tracks changes and comments on the fly, making everyone more
productive.”

Automotive and aerospace companies, scientific researchers, product
designers, and any organizations with complex, long term projects can benefit
from Meeting Canvas’s capabilities. It allows teams to save meeting progress as
it is made, start again later exactly where discussions ended, without losing
track of comments and changes. With near-infinite display scalability, the software
tool brings value to collaborators focused on research, review, and decision-making
during team sessions that span weeks or months.

Meeting Canvas leverages
off-the-shelf PC components to maximize hardware
stability. Its capabilities allow up to 90 open windows of data and video on
display simultaneously, pushing the 32 million-pixel limits of the Windows 10 desktop.
Meeting Canvas allows meeting participants to access, control, and contribute
content to the canvas with mobile devices, increasing the efficiency of
collaborative sessions by enabling sharing and control from one or more devices
at a time.

Key features of Meeting Canvas include:

  • Simultaneous viewing of multiple
    content and data sources in dynamically resizable windows
  • Real-time interactivity
    between multiple devices and data type
  • Real-time annotations and sticky notes captured for
    later reference
  • Recording of Meeting Canvas
    sessions including visuals and audio
  • Scalability from single large
    displays to full immersive, ultra-high-resolution workspaces like
  • Mechdyne’s 76 million pixel CAVE2
  • Multiple displays connected
    into one canvas.

Meeting Canvas version 3.0 now also includes

  • Sharing of data and control of the main Canvas from
    handheld devices
  • Local file sharing
  • Easy access to all Meeting Canvas capabilities through
    a circular interface hub

“Meeting Canvas has the perfect balance of structure and flexibility to support
collaboration the way you need it, incorporating key features to augment your
workflow and collaboration needs,” said
David Gsell, General Manager of Mechdyne’s Software Services business unit. “It
takes
collaboration to a new level, highlighting points of discussion, recording
important debates, or picking up the meeting right where you left off. The new
version now means that you can bring your laptops and mobile devices to
meetings and share content and control the displays from your mobile device.
That’s a real breakthrough!”
