Polycom, an enterprise-grade video conferencing provider, unveiled UC Board, a digital whiteboard solution that integrates with its existing services.
The Polycom UC Board combines a plug-and-play receiver and a wireless stylus that transforms whiteboard or LCD monitors into an interactive video whiteboard space. (picture below)
Meeting participants use the stylus to write or sketch on the screen or whiteboard on top of a shared presentation; it acts just like a pen. For now, the system supports only one stylus at a time, but the upcoming software updates will support more. Using using Polycom RealPresence Platform, companies can record and stream whiteboard content.
The company claims that the product is very easy to use, you just have to plug it via a direct USB connection to a Polycom HDX system in the room, without opening more applications or using extra hardware.
and you are ready
The UC Board integrates with the latest Polycom HDX solutions and more products will be supported later.
The Polycom UC Board solution is available today at US$1,999. For more information, call 1-800 POLYCOM (765-9266).
