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.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
