Polar takes on T1V distribution in the UK
UK distributor Polar signed American visual collaboration company T1V in a move that adds multitouch, multiuser software for enterprise and education markets to its portfolio.
T1V creates large-scale interactive software technology and has seven issued patents for collaboration and active learning software.
Its products, including ThinkHub, HubVC and the AirConnect mobile app, support in-room and remote participants.
Stuart Leader, director of Polar’s integrated services division, said: “If ever there was a time that highlighted the need for technology to support new ways of working, it’s now. Collaborative working as a concept has been around for a long time, but in so many cases, it’s been no more than a byword for sharing screens over a video call. The Covid-19 pandemic has compelled large numbers of us to work or study remotely, and as a consequence, has really emphasised the need to be able to collaborate in far greater depth.
“The T1V product range addresses collaboration into the truest sense of the word, allowing the sharing of a huge digital canvas, multiple windows and application-sharing with annotation tools and interaction from all participants, over a single software codec call.”
Marco Ventura, vice president of international sales at T1V, said: “T1V is excited to partner with Polar to expand our presence in the UK. With so many organisations rethinking ‘business as usual’ as a result of the global pandemic, our solutions serve an immediate need for companies seeking ways to keep their employees connected and engaged.”
