what s important
What’s Important?
  • Good AUDIO! Use DSP’s and HQ Mics for larger applications
  • HD Picture Quality! With high resolution images from computers & document sharing.
  • Easy to navigate control system via a touch panel. Easy transitions between modes.
  • * IT Departments are now in charge of indicating which technologies can be used
  • * Tying multiple locations together requires higher amounts of bandwidth especially with cloud style services to “Collaborate”
  • * IT backbones are now typically on a 10 Gig

switch with fiber back planes! 40 Gig systems

are next… What’s in your wallet?

One way – offers multiple users to display

their device

  • * Push / Pull technologies & BYOB support!
collaboration technologies1
Collaboration Technologies:
  • * Multi-Format support in one package!

Some use licensed software (restricted )

  • Others “Open Architecture” software
collaboration a wired approach
