Optoma and Joan Announce New In-Room Solution For Improving Meeting Room Environments

Fremont, Calif., September 3, 2020 – Optoma, a world-leading manufacturer of large display products and Joan, the award-winning meeting room booking system, today introduce a new, innovative solution tailored for meeting room displays. With Joan widget, an integration between Joan platform and Optoma, meeting attendees are now able to perform booking actions and track meeting information on Optoma Creative Touch 5-Series Interactive Flat Panels (IFPs) from inside meeting rooms.

Joan simplifies meeting room scheduling to increase efficiency of meetings and has been a trusted meeting room booking system for many international brands for years.

Joan widget comes as a pre-installed solution on Optoma’s Creative Touch 5-Series Interactive Flat Panels, featuring 4K UHD resolution, anti-glare glass, fingerprint resistant panel, an incredible 178-degree wide-viewing angle and cTUVus Eye Comfort Certification for Low Blue Light and Flicker Free operation, allowing audiences to comfortably view content from every seat in the room. The integrated widget allows users to sync with popular calendars such as G Suite, MS Exchange, Office 365, and iCal to quickly find and book meeting rooms, as well as check-in and extend reservations during meetings without interruption. Meeting updates are sent seamlessly across all channels directly from the Joan widget, ensuring teams are updated automatically.

The Joan widget can be featured to the fullest potential only with products built on similar values and of the highest quality. That’s why partnering with Optoma was a clear choice for us.
