DTEN InclusiView Delivers Greater Inclusion and Equity in Smaller Meeting Spaces
SAN JOSE, Calif, December 6, 2022 — The huddle room is experiencing rapid growth according to DTEN, a leading provider of video-first, touch-enabled conferencing solutions, citing current sales growth and IDC research indicating 25% gain year-over-year.* The reason: more employees are returning to the office, expanding the need to collaborate with remote colleagues. As many meetings don’t require the entire team and are often ad hoc, the need for huddle spaces is rapidly expanding.
DTEN recently launched DTEN InclusiView, a feature exclusive to DTEN ME, DTEN ME Pro, and DTEN GO, to enable more natural engagement between small groups of in-office employees and remote team members. Through advanced AI technology, DTEN InclusiView senses team members in huddle rooms and presents them in individual panels exactly like remote participants — bringing everyone face-to-face in the same manner.
“DTEN InclusiView upgrades the huddle room video experience to advance more productive and equitable hybrid collaborations,” says Nia Celestin, Head of Marketing at DTEN. “Remote meeting participants gain a clear view of their in-office counterparts – enabling more seamless communication, promoting meaningful interactions, and democratizing the experience for everyone.”
This greater inclusion begins with a huddle room equipped with DTEN ME, DTEN ME Pro or DTEN GO. The DTEN ME Series devices feature 27-inch, all-in-one display screens integrating video conferencing, content sharing, annotating, and digital whiteboarding. DTEN InclusiView is also included, utilizing the device’s three-camera array and AI functionality to optimize the collaboration experience.
Specifically, through the DTEN ME Series’ super-wide 160° field-of-view, DTEN InclusiView can perceive up to five in-room team members. Using both auto framing and smart framing, DTEN Inclusiview displays each meeting participant in optimized individual video panels. The technology automatically adjusts as new participants enter the huddle space.
The experience is comparable with DTEN GO: DTEN InclusiView is built-in and works seamlessly with the device’s four-camera array to present everyone equitably.
The impact: remote attendees see their colleagues more clearly, recognizing non-verbal signals such as facial expressions and body language. Because everyone has equal representation, meeting participants may easily speak, engage, and even lead a meeting regardless of their location.
“Inclusion is a key component of the DTEN experience,” emphasizes Celestin. “As a solutions provider and in our work with our platform partners, we’re always striving to deliver greater collaboration equity.”
DTEN InclusiView is available, at no additional charge, for DTEN ME, DTEN ME Pro and DTEN GO with its companion DTEN Mate. For more information on these devices, please contact DTEN channel partners or visit DTEN.com.
