Visionect, a company set to deploy electronic paper in environments impossible before, has developed a digital door sign that books and manages conference rooms. Their solution Joan excels in versatility, ultra-low power consumption, ease of installation and simplicity of use. Joan products have no wires and require no installation.
The Joan 13 device is enclosed in a precision-brushed aluminum casing, enforced with a durable glass pane to protect from scratching and hazing. It has a micro USB and another USB-C port for charging. The battery life is around one year because the content on the screen rarely refreshes.
Joan 13 can be mounted to a wall with a Vesa accessory or the adhesive magnetic mount that comes with each device. It’s easily deployable as it connects to all major calendar providers and integrates with popular office tools like Slack or Cisco Webex. The device is managed from an online portal which you use to connect the device to your Wi-Fi and digital calendar. In our review video, we will show off a sample company calendar on the Joan.
The industrial design is really slick. It has a white bezel and the back is also white. The content on the screen is razor-sharp, due to the high PPI.
This 13-inch display retails for $899.00 USD. The business that will find this viable are primarily offices, hotels and other facilities offering bookable spaces.
