Lightware Enhances Microsoft Teams Rooms with Powerful BYOD Capabilities

Lightware Visual Engineering, a global signal management specialist, designs, manufactures, and delivers matrix switchers, extenders, and AV-over-IP systems for various AV projects, focusing on customer needs and exceptional service.

Lightware Visual Engineering announced integration of its Taurus Switcher solutions with Microsoft Teams Rooms on Windows, enhancing BYOD functionality and room control for Teams meeting spaces.

This integration simplifies meeting room technology, allowing users to seamlessly integrate personal laptops, access room controls, and participate in meetings with their own devices, ultimately improving the overall user experience and focusing participants on the meeting agenda.

Lightware Visual Engineering, a leading manufacturer of connectivity solutions for the professional integrated systems market and a pioneer in signal management, today announced a powerful new integration of its Taurus Switcher solutions with Microsoft Teams Rooms on Windows. Developed for system integrators, IT professionals and corporate meeting room users, it delivers advanced Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) functionality and room control capabilities for Teams meeting spaces.

Powered by the Lightware Taurus UCX/TPX Series Universal Switchers, the solution augments the Microsoft Teams Rooms experience by allowing users to effortlessly integrate their personal laptops with the room’s meeting system. This enables flexible content sharing together with access to lighting, projector and shade controls from a single control panel.

Unlike typical Teams setups that rely on a local PC or Codec, Lightware Taurus switchers extend connectivity options, allowing multiple source inputs and providing additional USB peripheral support. This means users can participate in meetings using their own devices, with seamless integration into the room’s larger AV infrastructure. Taurus also offers other useful and practical enhancements, including integrated laptop charging and Ethernet connectivity, ensuring that users have everything they need at their fingertips.

In addition, by configuring the Lightware Companion App on a Microsoft Teams Rooms PC and integrating the Companion module within Lightware Advanced Room Control (LARA), additional functions can be introduced to further enhance meeting room capabilities. Lightware Taurus Switchers have also been validated for use by a wide range of leading meeting room technology manufacturers, including Lenovo, Poly, Logitech, Yealink and Barco.

Compatible Lightware products include the Taurus UCX, which is an advanced universal switcher that offers a powerful combination of USB-C and HDMI connectivity in one single device to transform any meeting space or huddle room into a unified communication powerhouse. In addition, the Taurus TPX is a pioneering signal management solution capable of extending USB-C and HDMI signals to as much as 100 metres and is relied on by professionals worldwide to enable true digital collaboration.

“This solution is ideal for corporate office spaces, education facilities, conference venues and any environment with dedicated Microsoft Teams Rooms capabilities,” commented by Gergely Vida, CEO of Lightware Visual Engineering. “It not only simplifies the technical aspects of running meetings but also enhances the overall user experience, allowing participants to focus on the agenda rather than the technology.”
