Polycom UC Board Transforms Ordinary Surfaces into Virtual Whiteboards, Making Sharing Content via Video as Easy as Picking up a Pen
The Polycom UC Board mobile whiteboard solution is the perfect solution to transform any whiteboard or LCD monitor into an interactive video whiteboard space and it natively integrates with the Polycom HDX® video system in the room. Sharing ideas in any video session is as simple as picking up a pen and starting to write, draw, and interact.
Whiteboards are an important collaboration tool in many different kinds of meetings. But when a whiteboard is used in a video conference, it's a common problem that remote participants cannot see the whiteboard or its contents, which undermines teamwork and participation.
The Polycom UC Board solution is the latest in break-through innovations from Polycom that are transforming the collaborative experience and elevating a typical video conference into a fully interactive and immersive session where people make decisions, solve problems, and move to action. From doctors illustrating a diagnosis to a patient, to an architect sketching the next concept for green construction, to a student solving a problem with classmates from around the world, the Polycom UC Board solution enables users to interact naturally and efficiently. Users can easily share with multiple participants and also record their work with Polycom's recording and streaming technology.
Polycom: Leading Technology Innovation, Unmatched Performance
Polycom is the only manufacturer to offer this ease of use and native integration for video whiteboarding by creating a direct connection from the video codec to any standard whiteboard or LCD in the room. Users just walk up to the board and pick up the stylus, and as soon as the pen touches the whiteboard, remote participants see the notations and are immediately engaged.
The Polycom UC Board solution is an intuitive and collaborative addition to any conference room and will be used immediately and frequently. Set-up is quick and easy, and little to no user training is necessary. Users just pick up the pen and start writing. With standards-based content sharing, the Polycom UC Board allows users to share their work seamlessly with any other standards-based system from Polycom and other manufacturers without the need for any gateway or conversion software. Mobile users on the Polycom Telepresence m100 and Polycom® RealPresence™ Mobile solutions can also view information shared by participants using the UC Board solution.
