Datapath’s Unique Quant Collaborative Application-Sharing Software gets Added Enhancements


Datapath, world-leading engineers of visual solutions, has added three new features to its innovative Quant collaborative application sharing software.

Quant is ideal for general business collaboration where project teams can work on the same document in real-time from different locations.  Operation-critical control rooms benefit from using Quant because it allows users on the same network to view physical sources connected to a video wall controller, wherever they are. This gives them access to up-to-the-second information leading to better-informed decisions and faster response times.

Datapath Product Manager, Matthew Tibbitt, said: “Quant offers something truly unique to the collaboration marketplace – the ability to manage and share applications from a central source and view on a single end point or a video wall. The scope it brings to control rooms is of huge benefit to organisations of all sizes.”

Quant’s unique capabilities also allow users to view and share application windows, as well as interact and make changes to original source files, even if the third party does not have the application software installed. As this is all done on a peer-to-peer network, there is no load or potentially sensitive traffic on IT department servers.

The three features; Chat, Meeting and Quant Curtain enhancements all add significantly to Quant’s usability and functionality.

  • Chat Function Allows users to message one another about the application window shared, and enables ongoing dialogue between users.
  • Meeting Function Allows a user to lock either their own desktop or a Quant controlled video wall to a selected set of users. In a video wall scenario, a meeting organiser can determine who can share to the wall for instant viewing and avoid accidental sharing from others.  This also increases security within meetings for shared video streams.
  • Quant Curtain Has updated features to allow an easier and smoother navigation experience. A button in the curtain enables users to add or remove shared desktops quickly. A Favourites option enables prioritising the users most frequently interacted with, so that their desktops appear in the navigation curtain automatically.

Matthew Tibbitt added: “These new features will greatly enhance the user experience of Quant as well as adding to the software’s ease of use and security. We are constantly working on ways to improve our products and our customers help us by actively requesting new features and revisions.  Their feedback is vital and Datapath are fortunate to have an active and engaged user community working with us.”
