Mixing the past and present

How to best showcase over 2.9 million bound volumes, 4,400 manuscripts and more while keeping the charm of a library built in the 20th century filled with material from the 18th century? With Visionect displays with E Ink Digital Paper, of course.

The Slovenian National University and Library (NUK) created their wish list for the communications system, they focused on mirroring the environment of the library – timeless, unobtrusive and flexible.

Visionect created a solution for NUK which hit all the key points – read more here.

Pivot now to a very different location – a luxury resort called Familux Resorts. Familux assets include resorts, chalets and yachts. This resort features five star services and amenities. Like a cruise ship, the hotels run activities for guests of all ages. While a cruise ship prints a newsletter every night for the next day’s schedule, Familux has stepped with signage from Visionect with E Ink Digital Paper.

Visionect was able to take the priorities from Familux - easy to install, easy to update, couldn’t be accidentally changed, display static information and maintains the luxurious and stylish appearance to match the environment.

While these installations are very different, the common factor is the E Ink Digital Paper. Lightweight, bistable (maintains the image when power is absent), requires low power to update images, can be powered by solar, easy to update – everything that Familux wanted was built into the Visionect Place & Play.

To reinforce this partnership of ease of use and powerful capabilities, Joan 6 was awarded the Red Dot Award for Product Design in 2022. The Red Dot Award is the benchmark of excellent design and innovation. The 2022 field was about 20,000 submissions. A panel of 48 international members choose Joan 6 based on the fundamental principles of sustainability, simplicity, and outstanding design.

This is the third time Joan has been honored – previous awards were given in 2018 and 2016. E Ink has Joan units at every conference room door. The long life of the battery and the ability to book a meeting at the doorway has been a huge bonus for us.

How do you manage your meeting spaces and shared assets? Have you evaluated the Joan system? Take a look today!
