APPLICATION SHARING UNLEASHES ORGANISATIONAL CREATIVITY AND COLLABORATION
Bergen, Norway, 4 January 2012 – Collaborative and integrated technology provider,
Visual Solutions AS today unveils the latest generation of its B2|Virtual Arena visual information software.
Anders Øvreseth, CTO at Visual Solutions AS says: “B2|Virtual Arena brings forward state-of-the-art technology in an easy-to-use package. It’s suitable for a wide range of work processes that require flexible, interactive and non-linear decision making. B2|Virtual Arena leverages the trend of increased IP-connectivity, mobile workers and globalisation.”
As an advanced flexible workflow collaboration tool, B2|Virtual Arena 2.0 powerfully combines audio, video and applications for sharing amongst multiple disciplines and geographic locations. This results in more productive and intuitive processes, better decisions and strategic outcomes.
The technology is unique in that it allows full real-time sharing from the technical users’ desktop, meeting or collaboration rooms. It also supports two way interaction and large group sharing of information.
Version 2.0 introduces a completely new sharing technology that gives incredible fidelity for remotely shared desktops. The application supports all major oil and gas technical applications for science, engineering and operations allowing users to share data, discovery and experiences online with other team members and remote peer groups. Mouse control, window sizing, look and feel of the users screen are all configurable. The application fully supports use for larger group review meetings and remote working in teams.
“Already the number one choice for collaborative technology users in the oil and gas industry, we’ve added several exciting functionalities to our next generation B2|Virtual Arena 2.0 software,” explains Magne Arne Brekke, Chairman and CEO of BB Visual Group.
An important feature is the B2|Media Server for the routing of audio, video and application sharing media streams across any desktop PC using the latest compression technologies. It provides real-time images and an immersive user experience, even with limited bandwidth.
All functions such as mouse and keyboard control are managed through the Data Sharing Framework optimizing the shared user experience.
Designed with usability in mind, the next generation software fully supports Microsoft Windows 7 and comes with an automatic computer start and launch option.
B2|Virtual Arena 2.0 can be viewed on any display, screen or projector based surface, eliminating the need for traditional hardware-based screen controllers or complex cabling or switching systems. A speaker and microphone is required at each B2|Virtual Arena 2.0 location to support audio streaming. A webcam is required to support video streaming.
“A challenge for any business is to make its important work processes, teams and assets more accessible and in an easy to understand format. The powerful features and advanced feature set of the next generation B2|Virtual Arena 2.0 software makes it the future choice of collaboration for teams and businesses,” ends Brekke.
