Prysm combines displays with SaaS to extend the reach of enterprise collaboration

Prysm Enterprise covers everything from phones to giant video walls

The increasingly busy enterprise collaboration space got a new entry Monday with Prysm's new platform designed to support dispersed, multidevice workplaces.

Combining hardware and software as a service (SaaS), Prysm Enterprise allows businesses and their employees to collaborate in real time across locations and screens ranging in size from mobile devices to large-scale video walls.

The platform works by creating cloud-based visual workspaces that combine applications, content, video conferencing and the Web. Collaborators can use those workspaces to create, edit, share and store their work, with the ability to re-access the saved workspaces later from any location via the cloud.

Included in the new offering are Prysm Cloud, the company's application suite and Prysm Mobile, which provides browser access for any mobile device. On the hardware side, Prysm Displays come in standard sizes of 65, 85, 98, 117 and 190 inches as well as custom sizes to fit any meeting room.

The Prysm Application Suite offers the ability to display, resize, position and annotate streaming video, Web apps, documents, presentations, images and other inputs from laptops and mobile devices. Users can incorporate any Web-based application or content, including word-processing documents, spreadsheets and presentations from Microsoft Office or other productivity suites. Uploaded content is available for collaboration by up to 10 Prysm systems. 

Prysm also integrates with any third-party video system or other conferencing system; native integration with Skype for Business is built in.

Prysm Enterprise is available now; Prysm Mobile will be available in the second quarter. A new 98-inch LCD display will begin shipping this spring.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
