Tesira®-based solution combines conferencing features with browser-based interface for mobile control
BEAVERTON, Oregon — Biamp Systems, a leading provider of innovative, networked media systems, today unveiled its all-new Oreno™ platform. Created specifically for conferencing environments, the groundbreaking control solution provides greater ease-of-use, deployment simplicity, and the ability to control any Biamp® Tesira®-equipped conference room via mobile devices. Designed to simplify the complexity of conference room setups, the Oreno suite is comprised of three core components: Oreno Creator, Oreno Manager, and the Oreno User Interface (UI).
“End users are very comfortable
using their personal mobile devices and have come to expect the same
familiar user experience in the workplace,” said Chris Fitzsimmons,
product manager, Biamp Systems. “Oreno is a natural response from Biamp

Ideal for standalone or multiroom conference settings using Tesira or TesiraFORTÉ, the Oreno suite allows participants to lock access to specific conference rooms during a meeting, place calls, and recall presets from Web-enabled devices.
To expedite the creation of the user interface, the Oreno Creator tool provides a simple UI builder, which uses drag-and-drop tools and pre-built templates. This allows for end user customization, while eliminating the need for complex programming. The Oreno Manager allows control to be passed to the end user. Deployed onsite on a Windows PC or virtual machine, Oreno Manager provides systems administration tools and network management capabilities. Running in the browser of Web-enabled devices, the Oreno UI provides complete mobile control of a room’s audio functions without the need for any software to be installed on the user’s personal device — creating a flawless conferencing experience for any meeting participant. Biamp engaged Blink UX to help create a world class meeting room experience. Blink UX — a leading User Experience Research and Design Firm — helped Biamp design and test the user experience and UI for Oreno.
“Biamp’s up-front investment in developing an interface delivers an experience that’s easy to use for end users and easy to install for integrators,” commented Frost & Sullivan’s Industry Principal Rob Arnold. With regard to Biamp’s commitment to bringing innovative products to market, Arnold added, “Biamp’s partnership with Blink UX is how an industry leader introduces a new product: test what will be introduced to ensure it performs exactly as expected.”
