Natural whiteboard collaboration experience for Polycom HDX environments
Expressing spontaneous ideas during a meeting is important in any organization. However, being able to do so easily and naturally in a videoconference has been elusive…until now.
With Polycom HDX, video conference participants have a variety of ways to collaborate using either the built-in whiteboarding software on the HDX or through our first-of-its-kind Polycom UC Board. With the Polycom HDX software solution, users collaborate across multiple locations with nothing more than a mouse or select touch screen monitors. Alternatively, the Polycom UC Board increases productivity and interactions among remote sites by enabling users to simply pick up a pen and freely share ideas on either a standard wall-mounted whiteboard or monitor.
The Polycom Whiteboarding Solutions offer:
Ease of use – UC Board works the moment the stylus touches the writing surface, requiring absolutely no technical skill or training to operate. For those at a desktop, lecturn or without a UC Board can share and annotate over content by simply plugging in a mouse or touch screen monitor into the HDX to start collaborating with or without a UC Board.
Cost effectiveness – Polycom whiteboard solutions provide HD video whiteboarding at a fraction of the cost by leveraging your existing Polycom investments and the whiteboards you already own with software that is already included in your system.
Collaborative productivity – With this elegant and cost-effective solution, remote participants can now easily see whiteboard content during videoconferences and can engage in the conversation as if they were in the same room.
Intuitive, familiar components – UC Board combines a compact infrared sensor that attaches to a whiteboard or monitor and a wireless stylus that meeting hosts can use to sketch, write and annotate just as they would with any pen or marker.
Ease of installation – Set up and use UC Board in minutes thanks to a standard USB connection to the Polycom HDX system. No more opening multiple applications or hunting for extra hardware, simply plug-in a mouse and double click, it is that easy.
