What is Solstice and where is it available?
What is Solstice?
Solstice is a wireless screen and content sharing software solution. It enables multiple users to connect simultaneously to a shared display using laptops and mobile devices over an existing wireless network.
With a Solstice-enabled display, participants can connect to share and control content in a meeting room, classroom, conference room or briefing centre, fostering collaboration and decision-making.
Solstice allows participants to enter an enabled space and connect most devices to the display, no cables or additional hardware required. Eliminating the concern over whether you have the correct adapter or cable. No need to pass a cable around or wait for it to become available before you can share your content to the display.
As an added benefit, participants also gain the freedom to move around the room while presenting from their mobile device.
The free Solstice client software can be installed on Windows or Mac laptops, Windows tablets, or Android or iOS mobile devices.
Where is Solstice available?
Primarily Solstice is available in the Centre for Advanced Design in Engineering Training (CADET - School of Engineering).
The building and facilities used in CADET are expected to be a showcase of cutting edge teaching and research technologies. The CADET project stakeholders have selected Solstice to run on more than 70 displays in teaching and meeting spaces within the building. It is planned to also run in a number of other yet to be confirmed meeting spaces within the School of Engineering outside the CADET building.
Outside of CADET, Solstice is available for all to use in a small selection of Meeting rooms:
- D2.100 (Student Hub)
- Waurn Ponds
- JC2.307 (Library meeting room)
And also in the following Teaching Spaces:
Solstice is currently considered to be a pilot deployment. The success of Solstice in CADET will inevitably see it have a wider role in meeting rooms and teaching spaces throughout Deakin University.
