Today Mersive, a leading provider of software-based collaboration solutions, announced it has received the 2015 Commercial Integrator BEST Award for the Collaboration category. The award recognizes Mersive’s Solstice Pod as this year’s Top Collaboration Solution for innovation and technological advancements.

In March 2015, Mersive introduced the Solstice Pod, a turnkey solution that combines enterprise-class wireless collaboration software with high-performance hardware at an unbeatable price. The software-based collaboration solution includes Solstice Software integrated on an Android hardware platform. The small form-factor Pod connects to a display in the room, enabling any number of users to instantly connect, share and control content on the display from their laptops and mobile devices. The Solstice Pod is perfect for classrooms, conference rooms, or any meeting space with a display.

The Commercial Integrator BEST Award winners were announced June 17, during InfoComm 2015, the premier event for the audiovisual communications industry. This year’s winning entries were chosen by a panel of accomplished integrators along with the editors of Commercial Integrator to join an exclusive group of products deemed most noteworthy. Judging criteria for the 2015 Commercial Integrator BEST Awards included innovation, functionality, competitive advantages and benefits to the installer.

By combining Solstice Software with a cost-effective, high-performance hardware platform, the turnkey Solstice Pod can be offered at breakthrough prices – $799 for the Small Group Edition (SGE) version and $999 for the Unlimited users version. Like Solstice Software, the Pod offers a continuous upgrade path for new features and functionality. It also includes built-in wireless access point capability, supporting on- and off-network deployments. The Solstice Pod transforms any display into an interactive tool for collaboration and enables visual information to flow freely among multiple meeting participants.

“As a truly market-driven product we rely heavily on feedback from our partners and customers so an award like this tells us that Solstice continues to deliver on our commitment to provide the greatest value at the most affordable price point” said Rob Balgley, CEO of Mersive. “This is the second year a collaboration solution from our Solstice family has received the Commercial Integrator BEST Award for Collaboration which is testimony to the flexibility of our software and its ability to keep pace with evolving market requirements”.

Mersive will be showcasing the Solstice Pod at InfoComm. For more on how Solstice works visit the Mersive booth #1871 at InfoComm, or watch this one minute video of Solstice in action.
