Team mashme was delighted to have been selected as the supplier for one of the first flagship hybrid environments. In 2019, alongside the innovative team at Colorado State University, College of Business we deployed the Mosaic Room. This 27 screen, UHD video wall with multiple tracking cameras, combined a production studio with an interactive lecture theatre to deliver mashme’s first truly hybrid classroom. Wind the clock forward, and post-pandemic we now see requests for hybrid learning environments and hybrid workplace engagement almost exclusively.

The flexibility of the mashme platform is one of the key pillars of its success. The ability to allow our partners to integrate best-in-class products and to design solutions to deliver each customer’s unique desired outcome is never more apparent. Hybrid learning environments require not only the most engaging and immersive video collaboration software but also the ability to take advantage of the advancements in technology and smart devices. Working closely with our mashme partners we are pleased to have delivered some amazing spaces.

A recent example of a compelling hybrid solution was installed by one of our partners in Spain, Epsilon Media. Located near Madrid, mashme and Epsilon combined expertise to create Sala Inmersiva within it’s Conecta Lab for the Universidad Pontifica Comillas. In this deployment, one particular device stands out – the Sony Edge Analytics Appliance. Utilising AR, it delivers some useful tools for the hybrid classroom or interactive workspace beyond the real-time PTZ auto-tracking camera with facial recognition; Handwriting extraction, Chroma Key-Less CD Overlay, Close-up by Gesture and Focus Area Cropping.

Creating an excellent hybrid solution is not limited to large video wall installations. Impressive results are also achieved with either 2 or 3 screens. A leading business school ENS in Sao Paulo, Brazil delivered the mashme solution in a purpose-built 3 x 98″ screen hybrid configuration to achieve their Sala do Futuro where they regularly engage with international universities and government bodies in their areas of specialism.

However, perhaps the most cost-effective starting point is the Dual Delegate Room. Supporting up to either 24 or 48 remote users, this 2 screen solution can integrate with almost any preferred device, such as digital whiteboards, and compatible existing equipment can be repurposed to make the environment a multi-use space when not hosting mashme sessions. Here is an example of typical Hybrid Classroom components.
