Mersive Technologies, the Denver, Colo.-based provider of enterprise-ready collaboration tools, announced a new way for the education industry to acquire its Solstice collaboration solution that accommodates the typical education ‘use-it-or-lose-it’ budget model. Mersive Technologies’ Solstice platform is a collaboration tool for the education market, transforming learning spaces by enabling group collaboration, enriching lesson content and promoting student-teacher engagement.
Mersive’s Solstice Pod for Education
For educational institutions only, the Solstice Pod for Education is available for purchase outright without the need for a subscription as of the Solstice 6 release. The base Solstice Pod for Education comes with all of the Solstice Pod core features and software updates, plus support for the lifetime of the Pod. An introductory version of Solstice Cloud is also included with upgrade options available for analytics and monitoring.
Additional features for Solstice Pods for Education are available à la carte for a one-time fee, such as Solstice Active Learning and Solstice Conference. Solstice Active Learning is a quick-to-deploy and easy-to-use feature that allows instructors to drag-and-drop video feeds among multiple displays, while Solstice Conferencing makes learning spaces interoperable with all major conferencing platforms by wirelessly connecting conferencing services on users’ laptops. Solstice Pod for Education will be sold directly through Mersive’s certified channel partner network.
“We listened carefully to our customers in the education industry and are happy to make Mersive Solstice easier to specify and deploy in education,” says Joel Carroll, EVP of sales for Mersive. “With this new pricing model for educational institutions, IT and AV pros will be able to take advantage of the budgets they have for their technology upgrade cycle, without ongoing subscription charges.”
