Overture RMM delivers a multi-location dashboard view to enable remote AV personnel to monitor the state of all their meeting spaces and AV devices in real time. Alarms with detailed logs allow technicians to quickly act on faulty devices and keep the meetings in perfectly functional state without physical interventions. Overture Insight Analytics gives access to historical trends and analysis to help decision makers to better understand usage to optimize their investment and to detect systematic issues and plan maintenance.

The next natural step for Overture RMM is to include visibility over the collaboration experience and the enterprise audio and video calls.

Overture RMM solution

General concept

Technology is essential for successful meetings, so a lot of time and money is spent to keep the devices running when needed. This includes displays, projectors, audio and collaboration systems, but also the ever-increasing virtual audio/video communication performances. Constantly monitoring both the basic functioning and the quality of these systems is becoming a crucial part of system integrators' jobs.

Combining the functionality and strengths of Barco's Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) system Overture with Vyopta CPM's Unified Communication & Collaboration (UC&C) monitoring environment, allows to go beyond the physical devices connections status but to tap into calls and virtual meeting records and quality. Having all information available at hand, on a single pane of glass, makes sure there is no more blind spot.

The UCC data from Vyopta CPM is integrated into the Overture RMM dashboard, allowing to visualize equipment parameters and communication quality details inside the same environment. In this way you benefit from a 360° visibility on meeting activities, across all geographical locations.

Overture allows you to build your own widgets to view UCC performance and quality per room and per location. Because the dashboard layout can be adapted very easily, displaying exactly the information the user requires, all relevant information is visible in the blink of an eye.
