LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - May 2, 2017) - Oblong Industries, Inc., the pioneer of interactive spatial operating environments for the new era of collaborative work, today announced the inclusion of its flagship workplace solution Mezzanine in Gartner's "Select the Right Technology for Modern Meeting Rooms" research note.

Mezzanine is included in the "Multiscreen, Room-based Collaboration" section of Gartner analyst Stephen Kleynhans March 29, 2017 note, quoted below.

"These solutions aren't so much about touchscreens or simple presentations, although they typically integrate that functionality. Rather, they are targeted at teams collaborating on a task that requires multiple data streams and active participation from multiple users. The goal is on visualization with information spatially distributed around the room.

"The advantages of this approach are like what we see on enterprise desktops. Enterprise workers today frequently multitask, engaging with information from multiple sources, and to enable this we have outfitted their desktops with multiple monitors. This reduces the inevitable context switching that occurs as they move between tasks on a single screen. It also enables them to place information spatially to assist with collating and navigating across multiple applications and files.

"Multiscreen, room-based devices do the same thing for a team. They place multiple streams of information across a broad, persistent work surface to enable multiple participants to quickly assimilate the information, focus on parts of the whole, and easily engage concurrently in the activity."
