Polycom whiteboard software makes sharing content via video easily

Polycom, a
provider of unified communications (UC), announced the launch of a whiteboard
solution, the Polycom UC Board.

The new
whiteboard solution 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

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. The solution transforms LCD monitors and display surfaces into a
video whiteboard space so every participant can stay fully engaged.

The Polycom
UC Board software integrates with the latest Polycom RealPresence Room HDX
solutions to share content easily. Users participating in a video meeting can
share content such as a presentation, and use the Polycom UC Board to write,
annotate or highlight key points, right on top of the presentation for everyone
to see in real-time.

Polycom UC Board is the first integrated video collaboration solution to make
sharing whiteboard content as easy as picking up a pen,” said Sudhakar
Ramakrishna, executive vice president and general manager of UC solutions and
chief development officer, Polycom.

As part of
the solution, Polycom is leveraging eBeam technology from Luidia, a global
provider of interactive solutions. eBeam turns many common flat surfaces into
collaborative workspaces where the capture, saving, and sharing of digital
content is made easy. Today, hundreds of thousands of eBeam systems are in use
across multiple industries worldwide.

Polycom UC Board makes real time content annotation quick and easy. The user
interface is so intuitive that you can just hand the stylus to a first time
user and let them take over,” said Christianne Orto, associate dean and
director, Recording and Distance Learning, Manhattan School of Music.
