ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jupiter Systems, the leading worldwide supplier of collaborative visualization solutions for PCs, mobile devices, conference rooms, and video walls today announced that it is now shipping its new, award winning Canvas CRS-4K™ to complement its award-winning Canvas enterprise software. The Canvas CRS-4K is a conference room system in a small, quiet box that enables powerful Canvas collaboration for teams in conference rooms and huddle rooms. Running the Canvas Client, CRS-4K allows teams to share live video, real-time data, documents, application screens, and presentations with remote users in a rich collaborative environment. In February, the Canvas CRS-4K received a Best Of Show Award from NewBay Media at the Integrated Systems Europe conference in Amsterdam, as well as Best New Wireless Collaboration Product and Best New Conferencing System Product awards from rAVe Publications.
“With Canvas CRS-4K, the conference room just got an upgrade. Now every conference room and huddle room can be a Canvas workspace for teams. Canvas already supported users on smartphones, tablets, PCs, and control room display walls. Now it also supports teams in any room with an HD screen on the wall,” said Brady O. Bruce, Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Alliances for Jupiter Systems. “The CRS-4K’s game-changing SimpleShare technology, as well as support for non-Canvas users on SIP-based conferencing systems, extends the reach and value of Canvas in the enterprise.”
The CRS-4K supports up to four 1080p HD displays or a single 4K Ultra HD display, allowing even the smallest huddle room to have Canvas on the wall for powerful, collaborative teamwork.
The CRS-4K is equipped with Jupiter’s SimpleShareTM technology, which makes it possible for users without Canvas to share their laptop screens easily and instantly with local audience and remote Canvas users. With SimpleShare, Jupiter’s advanced WebRTC implementation, any laptop can be a Canvas source without downloading software, connecting cables, or attaching dongles.
The CRS-4K supports Canvas 3.0, the latest version of Jupiter’s collaborative visualization software and its new features including a shared voice chat room, Microsoft Lync® integration, and support for shared video and audio with SIP-based conferencing systems. A multitouch web-based tablet interface makes previewing video and manipulating canvases easy.
Key features of the new Canvas CRS-4K product include:
- Supports up to four 1080p HD displays or one 4K Ultra HD display.
- Supports up to eight H.264 video streams, up to eight VNC viewer windows, up to eight web browser windows, and up to two SimpleShare windows.
- SimpleShare™ technology lets users present content wirelessly from any laptop, even if Canvas is not installed on that laptop.
- Microsoft Lync® integration allows users to escalate to Canvas from the Lync client or start a Lync conversation from Canvas.
- Multitouch web interface supports most tablets, providing video previews, as well as easy resizing and repositioning of canvases.
- Support for colleagues without Canvas allows users to dial out to users of SIP-based conferencing systems, and allows users of SIP-based conferencing systems to dial into a canvas, sharing canvases, video, and audio.
The Canvas CRS-4K has a high performance graphics system designed for a wide variety of demanding applications in industries such as Engineering and Design, Geographical Information Systems (GIS), Oil & Gas, Life Sciences, Digital Media, and more.
