The Vision Freespace VFSD Dongle hardware option is designed for digital signage outside the meeting spaces. A suitable screen would ideally be a tablet or LFD Touch Screen or just a regular large format display that has a HDMI input, Vision Freespace VFSD has the option to compile an indicative occupancy report using Bluetooth to monitor nearby devices.
How does Vision Freespace VFSD work?
Reserve meeting rooms and spaces in your e-mail client calendar – whether it is Outlook 365, Zimbra, Google Apps – any app based calendar. Freespace logs securely into your system and shows all booking relating to a given room, so users know when that room is in use and when it will become available.
One or Many
Use one Vision VFSD device to serve a cluster of rooms using a HDMI Splitter, or one per room. Select “other rooms” to view other room calendars. After viewing other rooms the interface will revert back to the default room calendar (if you have set a default room).
Extend, End, Book
Freespace can end, extend, and create new reservations. Setup is as simple as creating a e-mail user account for Freespace to logon with and assigning read and write permissions.
A start button will appear before a meeting is due to start. If the button is not pressed within a user-defined time after the start time the booking can be automatically cancelled. You can choose for the booking to stay on the server or be deleted.
In settings the user can choose to deactivate some or all of the buttons – other rooms, start, extend, end, and start. Freespace VFSD automatically hides them on the dongle but you can reactivate them if you choose.
Use server permissions to limit which room calendars a Freespace VFSD device can read and write to.
If you choose use Bluetooth to log nearby devices so that facility managers can create an indicative occupancy report. Freespace VFSD captures proximity of nearby devices and the length of time they were nearby.
Advanced Exchange Features
Outlook Exchange allows rooms (resources) to be grouped into clusters in various ways. Freespace VFSD supports:
- Room Lists – (activate in PowerShell with command prompt) The rooms in the selected list (e.g. New York rooms) show on Freespace with no manual entry.
- Distribution Lists – Ideal if you use a hosted server.
- Room Name Filter – Filters on all the rooms with defined characters in their name e.g. “new york” (supports up to 100 rooms).
