AV-over-IP touchscreen controls Ethernet-connected HDMI conference room display

Feb. 2, 2021
Mimo Monitors launches the Mimo Myst Link, billed as the first Ethernet-connected conference room display with HDMI capture capability.
In January, small touchscreen display specialist Mimo Monitors (Chicago) announced the launch of its Mimo Myst Link 10.1" display, designed with today's conference room in mind, billed as the first AV-over-IP display with HDMI capture capability. Eliminating extraneous cords for a streamlined set-up, the company says its Mimo Myst Link provides conference room flexibility and minimizes the need for additional extenders, and the hassle of ongoing IT maintenance. 

Able to connect seamlessly over and Ethernet connection (Cat 5e minimum) and be recognized by the PC as a regular display, the Mimo Myst Link provides flexibility in the conference room space for movable furniture configurations, and simplifies long-distance installations. The most sophisticated Mimo display to-date, Mimo notes its Myst Link also has a sleek, elegant, low-profile design, and is both durable and reliable to stand up to consistent use.

"With video conferencing becoming increasingly crucial to business' success, we saw an unmet need that this type of innovative solution could fill. Although AV-over-IP displays aren't currently mainstream in UCC spaces, we knew that an Ethernet connected display would provide unparalleled benefits for flexibility and cost savings," said David Anderson, CEO of Mimo Monitors.

The Myst Link complies with Microsoft and Zoom specifications and features integrated cable management, two separate audio paths for speakers and headphones, as well as ambient light, human presence, temperature and orientation sensors, and support for standby and low-power modes with auto wakeup. The unit's Cat 5e connection to the main PC does not consume HDMI on the PC; integrated HDMI capture boosts productivity.

Mimo's Anderson added, "Elevating conference rooms through innovation and convenience, this groundbreaking touchscreen solution maximizes usable space and enhances productivity. By requiring less complicated cabling while increasing the ease of long-distance installations, we truly believe this kind of solution represents a new era for conference rooms."

The Mimo Myst Link is the first-launched member of the new generation Mimo Myst Family, which will also include the Mimo Myst Adapt and Mimo Myst Capture, to be introduced later this year. The Mimo Myst Link is available for pre-order and will ship at the end of Q1 2021 at a retail price of $999.99.
