Consisting of a series of sleek PanL70Plus display units – all of which have an 800×480 resolution TFT, MEMS microphone, ambient light sensor, buzzer and 1W speaker. Each wall-mounted display unit is located at a room entrance and connected to a centralized hub, with the meeting room booking software capable of interfacing with Microsoft Outlook.

The PRM hub architecture enables cost effective PanL panels to be used while providing an easy way to power up the panels without any need for additional power supplies. It also provides a platform where control functions can be added to provide automatic control of appliances such as air-conditioner, projector or lights based on meeting schedules. Occupancy sensors can also be integrated to complement the entire ecosystem.

PRM is a conference room scheduling software that enables the panels and the calendars to integrate seamlessly, synchronizing all scheduling data across all platforms on the same network. All communications in between are encrypted to ensure data security. The number of panels can scale up accordingly to the number of rooms by simply adding more PanL Hubs.
