Status Board offers big screen signage for office availability. With a quick glance at a TV around your office, team members can easily find conference rooms based on availability and amenities. You can also customize your status board(s) to only show availability on specific floors or specific spaces.
Status Board works with most modern browsers, and can display in either landscape or portrait depending on the display. If you already have TV’s in your office, chances are you can use the same system to run Status Boards. Some TV’s have limited browser support built in, but you’ll have the most reliable experience connecting a separate device like a Chromebit or Airtame.
We’re not able to maintain a list of compatible TV browsers (it’s a REALLY big industry), and we’d recommend testing before deciding to use a separate device or not. We do not have native apps for Apple TV or Roku at this time.
