  • Studies have shown that it takes an average of 8:12 minutes to set up and start a meeting in a traditional video conferencing room. A lot of valuable time is wasted simply trying to get the meeting started.Most conference rooms are not enabled for video or collaborative data sharingEase-of-use results in minimal training requirements and increased adoption.Traditional video conferencing has been available for decades, and many organizations have made substantial investments to deploy these systems without fully realizing their return on investment. Not only are these systems costly but often they are complex and intimidating for the average meeting attendee. In many cases, these traditional video conferencing solutions remain under-utilized or neglected due to this fact
  • Microsoft Lync provides a single interface based on user identity and presence that unites voice, instant messaging, video and data conferencing.

  • Increased field of view allows users to see the entire room. Most cameras cut off the first 2 chairs. This can be problematic because typically it is the presenters or facilitators who sit in these positions. With the SMART camera it is easier for remote users to experience the full meeting. Also, because there is no need to use pan/tilt/zoom functions of the camera, everyone can stay engaged into the conversation instead of needing to spend time focused on the technology. The SMART camera adjusts to virtually any lighting condition, and it is positioned so that users feel as if they are looking each other in the eye, making it a more natural experience when speaking with remote users.
