Datapath, world-leading engineers of visual solutions, is now shipping its new advanced application-sharing software, Quant. Designed for video wall users working in collaborative business environments, Quant’s unique capabilities allow users to view and share application windows, as well as interact and make changes to original source files.
Offering wide, cross-market appeal, this innovative new software has been designed to work in conjunction with Datapath’s WallControl 10 software. With its ultra-secure sharing structure, this enables Quant to be equally suitable for Command & Control rooms as it is for classrooms and boardrooms.
The software, which contains patented technology, provides complete security as it’s within the same network, working behind the firewall and not loading data through company servers. Users also have full control over each application, deciding editing and sharing rights. Any changes are synchronised instantly, meaning updates made by any user are seen as they happen.
Providing full interactivity with any applications shared, Quant allows application windows to be dragged and dropped between peers or on to a video wall. This intuitive functionality makes it easy to share important information, regardless of whether the shared party has the application installed on their computer. Typical sectors where Quant will be highly advantageous include traffic management centres, manufacturing process control centres, utility service operations and security suites.
Datapath Product Manager Matthew Tibbitt says: “We are delighted to be demonstrating Quant to our customers at ISE. Now fully available we think Quant is going to make a big impact on the way companies do business. The security and flexibility of Quant makes it ideal for a wide range of markets – from operation critical control rooms to SMEs wanting smoother remote working practices.”
He adds: “Quant is perfect for a variety of working environments. In control rooms, for example, real-time information on a workstation can be shared to both a video wall and with additional workstation personnel who can instantly react to the information provided. Business environments also benefit, where project teams from different departments can collaboratively work on the same application irrespective of where they are located.”
