Polycom offers whiteboard collaboration

31 Oct 2011

Unified Communications (UC) technology continues to bring teleconferencing closer and closer to the real thing, with Polycom today unveiling its new whiteboard solution, the Polycom UC Board.

Teleconferencing has traditionally struggled to capture whiteboard interactions as the glare often obscures the image.

Polycom’s new tool uses a plug-and-play receiver with a stylus to record content written on the whiteboard and share it on remote participants’ displays.

The user can write on a blank screen or over a projection of a prepared presentation, with which the tool also integrates.

The UC Board system works in conjunction with Polycom’s RealPresence Room HDX system.
