Polycom released the Polycom UC Board, a Polycom-branded version of the eBeam whiteboard add-on:
“Polycom, Inc., the global leader in standards-based unified communications (UC), today unveiled an innovative whiteboard solution, the Polycom UC Board, which improves communication and collaboration in video conferences by allowing meeting participants to leverage their existing video display screens and mobile devices as interactive whiteboards for video collaboration.
Whiteboards are an important communication tool, but when traditional whiteboards are used in a video conference, it’s a common problem that remote participants have trouble seeing the whiteboard content, which undermines teamwork and participation. The first integrated video collaboration whiteboard technology of its kind, the Polycom UC Board is a simple, elegant and cost-effective solution combining a plug-and-play receiver and stylus for ease-of-use, and a compact design for portability. “
Great to see eBeam’s prowess in remote collaboration being recognized by Polycom, and brought to a much wider market through this agreement.
