Room Scheduling

Velocity System Room Scheduling

Velocity room scheduling is designed to provide information on the current status of meeting spaces as well as upcoming events. Integration with several popular calendar applications allows schedules to be displayed on Velocity touch panels installed at the entrance of each room. The touch panels utilize color coded GUI’s and bezel LED lighting, if equipped, to indicate whether a room is available or busy, so users can easily see meeting space status from down the hall. Ad hoc reservation capability allows the user to reserve a meeting for an unoccupied room right at the display panel, without having to access the calendar system from their personal device.

Overview

Hardware or Software Server Deployment

At the heart of each scheduling system is a Velocity gateway which manages communications between calendar services and the touch panel endpoints. Gateways are available as either a hardware appliance or as software designed for hosting on standard IT server infrastructure. The Velocity gateway directly interfaces with all devices over the network, reducing components and simplifying cabling.

Touch Panels and User Interfaces

All Velocity 5.5″, 8″, and 10″ touch panels are compatible with room scheduling. Bezel LED lighting is available on select 8″ and 10″ models. The scheduling graphical user interface, or GUI, is customizable. Add a logo and change colors to suit the installation. Make ad hoc room reservations and check schedules for other rooms directly on the touch panel.

Centralized Calendar Management

Communications with popular calendar services are centrally managed on the Velocity gateway, as opposed to each endpoint, for greater efficiency. We currently support calendar integration for Google Workspace, Office 365, Exchange, and Astra Schedule, with more coming soon.

AV Control Included

Velocity is the only solution that natively supports both AV control capabilities and room scheduling on a single platform. It’s IP-based system architecture allows a gateway to manage multiple rooms of control and scheduling. Scheduling panels can display an AV control QR code, allowing users to control the room from their BYOD device.
