Lightware Visual Engineering, a leading manufacturer of connectivity solutions for the professional integrated systems market, announces a partnership with Cisco to simplify meeting room control. As a Cisco Solutions Plus partner, Lightware can provide a flexible, consistent, and seamless user experience across room types. Lightware has a well-known presence within the live event space as the standard for concerts, arenas, and stadia.

Lightware has simplified the process of expanding, extending, and controlling Cisco Webex Room devices by providing a pre-configured appliance. With Lightware, users can expand the number of inputs and outputs of a system, extend the connectivity over longer distances, and empower the user to natively control the entire solution via the Cisco Touch10 and Webex Room Navigator. Lightware adds intuitive controls to the Cisco Touch10 and Webex Room Navigator and enables a consistent user experience to deliver dynamic controls in the same way in every room.

“Cisco and Lightware engineers have been working together on a mission to simplify the user experience for the last several years,” said Steven Samson, vice president for Lighware “We are replacing legacy control systems with a solution that is configured, rather than programmed.”

Lightware and Cisco have created configured packages designed for small to large meeting spaces. Additionally, Lightware has created bring-your-own-device (BYOD) packages to add camera sharing capabilities. Lightware’s configurator software simplifies room customization for many rooms at scale while providing a consistent workflow for the end-user via Cisco Touch10 and Webex Room Navigator.
