Large-screen collaboration devices are like UC in a box, featuring video conferencing and screen sharing. But these digital displays can be costly and lack interoperability.
Content-sharing devices, touchscreen displays, digital whiteboards or immersive visual collaboration workspaces — whatever you want to call these things — are making their mark on unified communications. These multifunctional systems are packed with collaboration software that enables dispersed teams to digitally annotate images, share screens and video conference.
The devices fill important collaboration and conferencing gaps. For instance, in the past, meeting participants might scribble a sketch on a traditional whiteboard and point a camera at the drawing so remote viewers can see the image. But digital whiteboards now let remote users see the content and mark it up for two-way, real-time collaboration.
