Spring 2020 Release

We’ll be covering all the Spring 2020 release news in a webinar soon, so watch out for your invite.

Key features this release

StarLeaf Huddle: available to pre-order now

We announced StarLeaf Huddle in the run up to ISE 2020, and we’ve had a great response. Our all-in-one meeting room solution brings enterprise video meetings to smaller spaces. It’s quick and easy to install, so you can cost-effectively turn any small space into a collaboration hub.

StarLeaf Huddle comes complete with a microphone, wide-angle camera, touchscreen and Pronto Cable USB, with optimized cable management for smaller spaces.

New: StarLeaf for Microsoft Teams

We’ve brought you a brand new Microsoft Teams integration, making it even easier to integrate high quality StarLeaf video meetings with the advanced collaboration features of Microsoft Teams. Now Microsoft Teams users really can meet with anyone, anywhere, on any device, internally or outside the organization. Plus you can keep working the way you want to – you can create, schedule, and start a StarLeaf meeting directly from the Teams app, and manage it in either your Teams or Outlook calendar.

If you’re an existing user, we’ll let you know as soon as it’s available in the AppSource store.

Watch our sales engineer Laurence Boyce give a quick overview of the new StarLeaf for Microsoft Teams.

Join any meeting with StarLeaf MultiJoin

If your diary contains meetings across different platforms and meeting services, you’ll love StarLeaf MultiJoin. Join all your meetings from any StarLeaf room, at the touch of a button, without the need for complex dial-in codes. Your meetings appear as a green Join now button on the touchscreen – press the button and you’re instantly in your meeting. MultiJoin works with Microsoft Teams (via CVI partners), Microsoft Skype for Business, Zoom, Webex and BlueJeans. MultiJoin is available with an Enterprise room subscription.

Everyone gets the full experience with Guest Join

There’s a lot of excitement about Guest Join, and rightly so, because it’s easier than ever to invite anyone to meet using StarLeaf. No matter what browser they’re using, your guests will now get the full StarLeaf meeting experience without having to sign in. Invites now include a link to directly join the meeting, so we’ve streamlined joining for existing StarLeaf users too.

Meet in an instant. Meet now.

You’ve always been able to start a video meeting with a contact, or escalate a group chat to a video meeting. Now you can instantly start a meeting with anyone thanks to the new Start Meeting button. You’ll find it in the StarLeaf meetings tab on desktop devices.

The best ever GT Mini

It’s already pretty amazing, but these enhancements to the GT Mini make it the best ever GT Mini.

  • Customize your screens when they’re not in use. Now you can set your own background picture, to customize the look and feel of your StarLeaf deployment.
  • Upcoming meeting notifications. Onscreen prompts will tell you about meetings starting soon, so you can finish yours on time.
  • Better sharing experience. New notifications make it clear whether you’re sharing your content to the room, or the entire meeting.
  • Mute status. See at-a-glance whether your camera or mic are muted.
  • On-screen user tips. These are also now available when a GT Mini is not in use.
