PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Melon Fashion Group has chosen Orange Business Services for a virtual fitting room solution using immersive video conferencing.

    Here's Overture - The knock-out A/V Control solution for meeting rooms

    March 30, 2017 | Telepresence Options


    A/V Control systems are great. They allow you to manage all audiovisual equipment, lights, curtains, and even ambient temperature from a single control unit. However, conventional A/V Control solutions are typically closed, hardware-based systems, which makes them cumbersome and inflexible. Setting up such a system requires a lot of programming and installation effort. With Barco's Overture solution, this is all a thing of the past.

    An IP-based software solution, Overture can be connected to the company's standard IP network. To add a network-enabled device (projector, display, audio system, blinds, retractable projector screen, ...), simply connect it to the network and configure Overture with a web-based interface. That's it. Overture can work with any device from any brand (as long as the protocol is available). Furthermore, the software follows a natural and logical way of working, which means that every IT or facility staff member can handle system set-up and maintenance.
