Lighting + ADI Icon
The Taurus UCX solution, Lightware’s USB-C with the powerful combination of ADI Icron (part of Analog Devices), pushes the limits of USB signal extension. Vida explains, “The future of meeting room connectivity is USB, and Lightware has developed its USB solutions to meet the growing demand in this area. We’re also leading the way when it comes to educating the global AV audience about the possibilities USB offers, to simplify the transmission of audio, video, control, and Ethernet signals made possible with USB-C. Since Icron is a market leader in USB technology and components, it was obvious to team up with them to pursue our common goal of simplifying signal management over USB.
Lightware + Cisco
As a Cisco Solutions Plus Partner, Lightware’s API capabilities enable seamless device integration. For example, the open API allows users to enhance Cisco Touch 10 and Room Navigator with additional button widgets and sliders from Lightware. Project-specific Lightware bundles can also be customized to optimize a Cisco Webex room to meet any need, scope, and budget.
“Lightware devices are in hundreds of Cisco-powered meeting rooms around the world and serve a wide range of operations,” Vida says. “Deeper integration allows users to bring simple, consistent controls into any Cisco room application, allowing them to extend, expand, and exchange signals more easily than ever before.” We look forward to continuing this collaboration and working together to advance the audiovisual industry. »
