Who is the Joan Display for?

The Joan displays are for meeting rooms that do not have a PoE or power connection (UBS-C). As the displays need to be charged every 2–7 months, we recommend them especially for smaller companies with up to 10 meeting rooms.

Pros:

  • Simple setup

  • Connected via Wi-Fi

  • Touch functionality

  • Ability to book from the display

  • Data is updated immediately

  • Backlight

  • Audio feedback

  • Up to 6 months battery life (can be charged via USB-C)

  • High-quality design and solid build quality

  • Accessories such as PoE adapter or anti-theft device (wall bracket)

Cons:

  • Only available with a subscription model

  • Premium & high price segment

  • Dependent on battery life

  • Extended charging time

Model

There are various models with sizes ranging from 6" to 13". There are also versions with touch and without touch. The prices range from €349 to €899. A subscription is required in addition to the purchase price.

You can find more information on Joan's website.
