Christmas came early this year: Joan, the room scheduling door label by Visionect has been selected as a CES 2016 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Eco-Design and Sustainable Technologies product category.
Judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media, the selection honors outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products.
It recognizes the value delivered by Joan’s system design and integration in a way that significantly reduces the impact on the environment.
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.
The Joan conference room system will be displayed at CES 2016, which runs January 6-9, 2016, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
