POLAR has announced the addition of T1V to its portfolio. Based in the USA, T1V is a visual collaboration company specialising in multitouch, multiuser software for the enterprise and education markets. With a stated mission to remove barriers to collaboration, T1V has developed its business over the past decade to become a leading innovator in large-scale interactive software technology, with seven issued patents for collaboration and active learning software.
T1V’s suite of collaboration software products, including ThinkHub, HubVC and the AirConnect mobile app, work cohesively to support a seamless, intuitive user experience for in-room and remote participants, replacing much of the hardware equated with today’s meeting room technology. ThinkHub Connect active learning technology is designed to support a wide variety of teaching and learning styles from the traditional lecture, through team problem-solving and group-based work. This solution also supports students at off-site locations and allows easy content sharing between remote locations. All of T1V’s solutions are built for BYOD (bring your own device) to support the variety of devices, programs and platforms of today’s meeting and learning environments.
Stuart Leader, Director of POLAR’s Integrated Services division commented: “If ever there was a time that highlighted the need for technology to support new ways of working, it’s now. Collaborative working as a concept has been around for a long time, but in so many cases, it’s been no more than a byword for sharing screens over a video call. The COVID-19 pandemic has compelled large numbers of us to work or study remotely, and as a consequence, has really emphasised the need to be able to collaborate in far greater depth.
“The T1V product range addresses collaboration into the truest sense of the word, allowing the sharing of a huge digital canvas, multiple windows and application-sharing with annotation tools and interaction from all participants, over a single software codec call. T1V’s range is comprehensive and very impressive, allowing levels of interaction that redefine collaborative working in both the commercial and education sectors. Products like ThinkHub Connect, which allow screen and content sharing across multiple workstations, offer incredibly exciting possibilities for higher education settings. T1V is another highly significant addition to the POLAR portfolio.”
T1V Vice President of International Sales, Marco Ventura added: “T1V is excited to partner with POLAR to expand our presence in the UK. With so many organizations rethinking ‘business as usual’ as a result of the global pandemic, our solutions serve an immediate need for companies seeking ways to keep their employees connected and engaged. Our platform is unique in that we can support in-room and remote collaboration – while providing an intuitive, user-first experience. For those organizations looking to connect their global offices – they need look no further.”
