Connected. Beautiful. Powerful.

We’ve just finalised our latest fantastic project and we’re very proud to announce the new nsquared digitable55It’s connected. It’s beautiful. It’s powerful. And, it's clever.



When we sat down to design our latest digitable we wanted a great looking piece of furniture with digital capacities that were second to none in the space of tabletop computing. We believe we’ve achieved both of those goals and judging by the reception it’s getting, there are a plenty of people who agree with us.

One of the first deployments was last month at The Porter in Sydney. The Porter is a highly activated executive co-working environment that’s full of beautiful, high quality furniture and the most exciting technology for business. The nsquared digitable55 fits right into The Porter’s gracious spaces where it’s being used for sales pitches, business meetings, collaborative planning, and creating better solutions.


  


The flush tabletop boasts a massively multi-touch 55-inch embedded projected capacitive LED touch screen panel that’s able to respond to at least 200 simultaneous touches in real time.


Powered by the latest Intel i7 chip, a high end dedicated graphics card, and Windows 8.1 kernel, the nsquared digitable55 has been designed so that it can be easily upgraded as and when technology improves. It was really important to us that we create a piece to stand the test of time in terms of aesthetics and functionality. We didn’t want to add to the growing worldwide refuse problem that is being fed by an increasing throwaway culture. The nsquared digitable is anything but throw away.

Its classic, timeless design provides a workspace that’s big enough to comfortably stand or sit at. People around the table can view and annotate digital architectural plans; search online with multiple browsers; brainstorm and capture new ideas; or work with multiple virtual documents. Different files can be open on the table at the same time and viewable from any position. It responds to touch and stylus input, and connects wirelessly and almost seamlessly to your personal devices as well as cloud storage services such as Dropbox and OneDrive. *

Making large format multi-user screens easier to use

Shared screens should be accessible

The face of technology has changed quickly since the invention of the first computers and it continues to do. So that we can continue to get the benefits of the new platform offerings we need to move our management policies forward in keeping with the use case scenarios of the various devices.


Which user should log in?


Large format displays driven by touch input are being placed into meeting rooms, foyers, and other shared spaces. Increasingly they’re placed in these spaces with the specific intent that several people will use them simultaneously and collaboratively without intermediary devices such as the keyboard and mouse.  Multi user screens, particularly those in horizontal format, are designed to enhance conversations and communication. Conversations flow more naturally and meetings can come to resolution more effectively and efficiently.

To provide their full design benefit these devices need to be easily accessible and available for anyone that comes into the space, as are whiteboards, phones and light.

In an enterprise environment this means a couple of things:
1. The large format shared-screen computer should not be domain joined. 

2. Any network resources required for the screen to operate need to be provided to the PC that is driving the screen.

This thinking represents a new way forward and a change in the way all computers in an organisation are treated equally. Shared computer experiences are a different use case to personal devices and need to have different permissions set.

nsquared rooms makes booking meeting spaces easy.



Did you know........ 
..........that nsquared rooms is great for finding available spaces for ad hoc meetings?

Being part of a large organisation can be a great thing. In a big company there is always plenty going on and lots of people with whom to collaborate and learn. It is often hard to find available meeting rooms at short notice. The room booking systems can be overly complicated and support personnel won't have time to make the booking for you that quickly. So you then end up in a noisy café, which is not a good scenario for a confidential chat. What if you could search for, and book a room, as soon as you knew you needed it?
With nsquared rooms you can do just that.


You can find out quickly what rooms are available within your timeframes. Better than that, you can book any of the available rooms all by yourself. It’s all connected to Microsoft Exchange so the information is updated immediately, which means interruption-free meetings.

We’ve seen it used in building foyers, at floor entrances by the elevators, and dotted around university campuses and business estates where they’re being used to great effect. Take a look here to find out more about nsquared rooms.
