99% less energy

Visionect’s expertise in product development has been combined with the e-paper developer E Ink’s ultra-low power displays to show that eco-friendly products can still deliver leading edge functionality.

Joan Meeting Room Assistant is the result of this cooperation: the greenest meeting room label, it uses 99% less energy than existing room booking devices

Office equipment is the fastest growing energy user in the business world, consuming 15% of total electricity use in offices, with this figure expected to double by 2020. Meeting room door signs are no exception.

“Unlike other digital door labels, e-paper running on the Visionect Platform features minimal power consumption, about only 1% of that of an LCD or LED, resulting in extreme energy savings when using Joan,” explained Matej Zalar, CEO of Visionect.
