Overall Satisfaction with Intel Unite

We needed a simple solution for turning our meeting rooms into easily utilized spaces for vendors as we were doing a major systems implementation that affected the entire hospital and had tons of groups coming and going. HDMI cables were getting lost/broken, people didn't travel with the appropriate dongles for their equipment and would end up stealing ours afterwards, and it was becoming a problem getting them set up to use the space. Unite allowed us to let them wirelessly connect to the display screens as well as share multiple screens from other users at the same time, which helped with training. No more dongles, just electricity needed to keep the laptops going and once they were done, we didn't have to worry about the state of the equipment afterwards.
  • No dongles needed any longer for connections, it's all through a local wifi (or the corporate one depending on how you set it up). You can stream from mobile devices too.
  • Simple set-up - laptops connect very easily, mobiles connect quickly with an app.
  • The initial setup was a bit of a pain - when we started they required specific hardware to make it work (Intel vPro), which wasn't on the PC used for presentations at the time and we had to change hardware out.
  • Software versions are difficult to find on the Intel website - it's a bit of a jumble and not clear as to what needs to be installed and where.
  • For us, this has been a creature comfort primarily as it has allowed us to simplify connections in meeting rooms for infrequent staff.
  • We had a lot of theft of dongles from meeting rooms due to presenters snatching them when they packed up for the day. [Intel] Unite let us allow presenters to connect wirelessly to the display screens, and no more dongles to hand out in the first place!
GoToMeeting and Webex both require either a connection to the display screen or a PC mounted to the display to connect through. [Intel] Unite handles both of those areas, though it doesn't function as a remote meeting platform to bring people together from different locations. It's just for local display.

It's a fantastic tool [Intel Unite] in meeting rooms where staff frequently change and/or bring their own devices to connect. No more wires or dongles, just a wifi connection needed and that's it to stream to the screen. It'll even display on the screen exactly what end-users need to do to connect, which makes getting connected for less tech-savvy users very easy. If you have an IT or AV department that isn't great, this probably isn't a great option to roll-your-own, but they do sell dedicated Intel Unite PCs with everything pre-done on them.
