Barco’s Overture A/V monitoring and control software delivers expanded automation and increased security
Las Vegas, 6 June 2018 – Barco announces that its AV monitoring and control solution, Overture, now includes Active Directory and Microsoft® Exchange. This latest update to Barco’s AV control solution uses ADFS (Active Directory Federation Services) and LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) for Cloud and On-Premise deployments respectively. These two elements offer increased security through enterprise level access control, as well as the ability to manage users and user groups in the Active Directory environment.
Room Automation with Microsoft Exchange
With the integration to Microsoft® Exchange, Overture automates the power of the room and its devices based on the room schedule. The automation ensures that as participants enter their meeting, the room is set in the correct state. By reducing the steps needed to get a meeting started, Overture provides participants with a better user experience and acts as a significant time saver for everyone involved.
Once the meeting ends, the room will automatically switch off all relevant devices, increasing the life of the devices and decreasing a company’s overall power usage. If a meeting ends up not taking place, the power saving automation preset prevents unnecessary device power usage and releases the room back to Exchange as available.
Continuously strengthening the Overture value proposition
Since its initial release a year ago, Barco has enhanced the Overture offering by introducing a variety of features to increase the automation functionalities of the software. The latest feature sets further enhance the capabilities of the A/V monitoring and control solution.
“Active Directory and Microsoft® Exchange integrations were developed to further support enterprises with an A/V monitoring and management solution for their meeting room spaces,” states Jan van Houtte, Director of Product Management. “We are committed to continuing to push the boundaries with software-based AV monitoring and control solution for the enterprise environment to proactively address to customer needs, at the same time maximizing ROI”.
You are invited to get a live demonstration of Overture, including the new features, at Barco’s booth C2536 at InfoComm.
