In an age where everything is being tracked and monitored, meeting room availability and privacy remain an important factor in areas where important meetings take place, i.e. office, educational institution, or technology research facility. As a result, having the right device to grant access control, and also indicate room availability can save time for employees while maintaining strict meeting confidentiality at all times.
Xinc Technologies and Winmate Inc. have developed a comprehensive, multi-touch screen panel PC that can be used to book meeting rooms, grant access control, and display vital meeting room information. With a touchscreen panel outside each meeting room, attendees can view room availability upon entry, view information on a pending booking, or making bookings for a later time on the touchscreen device itself. Plus, these panel PCs help to ensure that only authorized personnel can access the room during the period booked with its RFID access control. Not to mention the RGB LED lightbar indicators to provide clear information on the availability of the meeting rooms. Currently, the panel PCs are serving companies, universities, and colleges across Australia.

- Check Meeting Room Availability – having a clear panel PC display with an RGB lightbar indicator in front of meeting rooms can greatly reduce the time checking whether the room is free or not, e.g. a red indicator shows an occupied room, whereas a green indicator means the room is free. These panel PCs help corporations and institutions maximize their meeting room occupancy and increase overall workplace efficiency.
- Personnel Access Control – confidentiality is a must in buildings where important meetings take place since trade secrets may not be revealed under any circumstances whatsoever. Adding RFID readers onto the panel PCs means that only authorized personnel (e.g. senior executives, product development team, board members) may be allowed into the specific meeting room.
