Intermedia-CS is a UK-based value-add distributor specialising in innovative technology for the huddle space.
Huddle Room Technology is the maker of Huddle Hub One (HHO), the industry’s first multi-session wireless presentation system supporting up to 7 concurrent sessions on a single, low-cost product. The Huddle Hub One supports both legacy-style (device to display) for traditional meeting rooms use and an unprecedented BYOD scenario (device to device) for use in any physical space of a corporate building including lobbies, lounges and open spaces.
Beyond enhancing the traditional presentation experience, lowering the cost per concurrent session and unleashing the power of collaboration in more suitable spaces, the HHO offers a unique opportunity for seamless video-conferencing integration. A distinguishing feature dubbed “Wireless AV” introduces the concept of “zero-cables design” to define a collaboration space where both the audio and video of a VC session are connected wirelessly from USB cameras or all-in-one video soundbar systems; an industry first.
“We are both excited and honoured to announce our partnership with Huddle Room Technology and to cover the important markets of the UK and Ireland” says Doug Pidduck, founder and CEO at Intermedia-CS. “As a leading added-value distributor committed to long term partnerships, Intermedia-CS has elected to carry only top brands of the UC & AV Industry and our decision to add the Huddle Hub line to our catalogue will afford easy access to the HRT product line to our prestigious circle of over 200 vendors”.
“After testing various wireless content sharing solutions”, Doug continues, “we decided to partner with HRT for their unique technology and the great support they offer. The mass-deployment of video capability into meeting rooms will demand minimal user intervention and a positive user experience if the promised productivity gains are to be realised. We are excited to add the HHO to our growing product portfolio.
We were looking for a solution that makes wireless content sharing and the use of BYOD/BYOC easy to install and use – we have found all of this and more in the HHO”
The HHO is not just a wireless content sharing device, it also turns the normally separately-connected USB camera and speakerphone into a single wireless device. The Huddle Hub One makes wireless collaboration easy and intuitive providing a simple, cable-free BYOD experience.
“Since the very beginning of our conversation with Intermedia-CS” says Stefano Spattini, CEO of HRT, “we have found that we share the same vision regarding evolution of collaborative workspaces and the compelling role that wireless integration of AV technologies is going to play for emerging BYOD and BYOC (bring your own codec) scenarios. The Intermedia-CS team definitively owns all the advanced skills required to design, deploy and support the next generation of AV projects and we can’t wait to join them in action”.
The mission of HRT is to deliver technological solutions that create the most comfortable and effective experience for wireless presentation and video communication in huddle rooms. With this goal in mind, HRT conceived Huddle Hub One, the first product designed to supplement the current AV technologies in order to enhance the user experience. Huddle Hub One brings huddle room video communication to an unprecedented level of comfort, effectiveness and flexibility.
