  • Slide Objective: Articulate the vision for Lync 2013 & Lync Online. No Build - Use the pillars to articulate the investments and set-up the subsequent slides. Talking points:The vision for the next release of Lync builds upon the strengths of Lync 2010 while taking a broader view of how communications, data and human interaction can blend in order to drive connections among a diverse and distributed workforce. When animation, clean design and touch are layered in, the scenarios and user experience is elevated in new and engaging ways. The essence of Lync 2013 is captured in 4 pillars, or collections of investments:The first is Multiparty HD video & content sharing. Lync 2013 and Lync Online showcase advances in video and visual communications. “I see what you mean” takes on an entirely different meaning when colleagues and customers from down the hall, across town or around the globe can see each other’s gestures while hearing their tone - when working together in a Lync Meeting. The next release of Lync further delivers on the promise of “access anywhere”, ensuring that Lync is available anywhere a user has access to Windows 8 PC or tablet, mobile device or browser. Modern, mobile and web client investments allowLync to be where the users are, putting people at the center of communications and collaboration. And yet, with the diversity of platform, form factor and device support – the experience is familiar and engaging. Lync was built from the ground up to deliver identity-based communications– pivoting on a user’s identity rather than the old paradigm of using phone numbers as a proxy for a person. Lync Integration across Office apps enables “one-click” communications directly from within the productivity applications used by Information Workers everyday. Lync is integrated into Outlook, SharePoint, OneNote and other Microsoft applications, users do not have to leave their current application when they need to reach out to others. Lync breaks down solution silos and application boundaries making communication and collaboration natural and less complex. Federation with Skype unlocks the potential to bring all of these investments mentioned, and the rich communication and collaborations scenarios they enable - to hundreds of millions of users worldwide. Transition - Take a closer looks at each one of these investment areas
  • Add sub-heading: Provide a consistent user experience across multiple communication devices and media types. AdThere are a number of technologies that have been used to help achieve unified communicationsWhile many of these technologies are meant to help improve communications between users from their desks or remote offices, Visual Collaboration is emerging as a way to improve collaboration among teams working across distancesd a new category called visual collaboration solutions with a logo of a SMART Board interactive whiteboard.

  • Large system with dual 70” and table mics. There is also a medium 84”.
  • THERE IS NO OTHER CAMERA like this on the market – and nothing remotely close from the other LRS competitors.

  • The ideal solution delivers a complete collaboration solution, avoiding the challenges around install, use, and support on multiple vendor systems. The latter is important as the competitive solutions are composed of multiple vendors solutions.
