Oblong Industries Expands Network Across EMEA Bringing Infopresence to More Markets

London, 12 October, 2016 – Oblong Industries Inc, pioneers of immersive, spatial technology for the new era of collaborative work, today confirms there are more places than ever before across EMEA where clients, consultants and integrators can experience Mezzanine, it’s flagship product, first hand. 

Mezzanine uniquely delivers Infopresence, the experience of being surrounded in 3-dimensions by all of your team’s content and data simultaneously, whether in the room, in a connected room, or as guest collaborator joining remotely.  Infopresence is driving productivity for dynamic workplaces globally.

Steve Pryor, Director, EMEA Channel Sales explains: “EMEA is a key region for Oblong Industries and we are delighted to announce a number of new partnerships that will enable more organisations to experience the advantages of Infopresence and drive business throughout the region. We are particularly excited at the opening of two new partner Experience Centres, as these provide the ideal platform to offer potential customers the full Mezzanine experience.”

The two newest demonstration rooms, located in Stuttgart and Dubai, are fully equipped to offer interested parties an immersive demonstration of Mezzanine’s power and capability. At the same time, Oblong has enhanced and improved its own centres – one in Shoreditch, London and the other in Barcelona, Spain.  Oblong Industries’ ground-breaking collaboration technology allows global organisations to engage in Infopresence, a unique and immersive way of visualizing data and linking international teams, global assets, and content in a more compelling and collaborative way. Infopresence literally surrounds teams in information, creating a truly immersive, 3-dimensional workspace that helps to accelerate business and enables better, more informed time-critical decision-making.

Ventura, Dubai

In Dubai, Oblong Industries’ strategic partner Ventura Global DMCC services clients throughout the UAE, providing intelligent and futuristic building infrastructure technologies to businesses and institutions across a wide range of sectors. Ventura has installed a 6-screen Mezzanine room, which uniquely has 4 pop up screens in the boardroom table that repeat the cork board screen located at the rear of the room. At a special event on 4thSeptember to celebrate the official opening of the Mezzanine room, customers from Government, Media, Hospitality, Healthcare, Universities and Professional Services Consultancies were invited to experience the technology for themselves.

Davit, Stuttgart

In Stuttgart, Oblong has partnered with Davit, the workplace technology specialists located in the heart of the high-tech manufacturing industry area. They have installed a 6 screen Mezzanine room that incorporates an interactive workspace area in place of a traditional whiteboard. The Mezzanine room was officially opened on 6th September with customers attending the launch event from the Automotive, Manufacturing and Pharmaceutical industries.

Oblong Industries has delivered a number of high profile projects in Europe including the impressive Delta Room in Paris, where teams can benefit from this game-changing visual collaboration solution. Global auditing and consulting group PwC have created an intelligent workspace incorporating Oblong Industries’ breakthrough Mezzanine technology to engage and creatively collaborate with clients. This new facility, the Delta Room, offers a unique immersive meeting space and supports the company’s commitment to anticipating business trends of the future.  

The addition of two new partners to Oblong Industries’ network in EMEA continues to strengthen Oblong’s presence in the region and compliments the other sites where Oblong’s Mezzanine can be experienced, including the newly refurbished Barcelona Demo Centre and impressive Demo Centre in London. There are now fifteen demonstration centres globally. http://www.oblong.com/demo/
