With the technological landscape navigating towards the integration and usage of unified collaboration and communications tools that are geared to transforming the meeting room experience, the Cisco Spark Board represents the pinnacle of 21st Century technology.
So what is it?
In short, the Cisco Spark Board is a team collaboration device that boasts wireless presentation capabilities, digital white boarding, and video conferencing. Brimming with features, this all-in-one device represents the heights of technological innovation and intelligence.
More specifically, though, it’s a touch-based, 3-in-1 digital whiteboard that combines high-quality video conferencing, with the powerful ability to share content wirelessly or with a simple swipe of the screen. Consequently, it’s this usability that allows users to collaborate like never before, with a seamless and immersive experience designed to involve everyone in the discussion.
Cloud based sharing
The ability to share content and media from the swipe of your finger seems all too natural these days, with a variety of ways to do it in business and your daily life. However, in meeting room environments this isn’t as natural, where the norm usually involves sending several emails and printouts ahead. This process, though, can become quite messy and
This process, though, can become quite messy and disorganised when impromptu meetings can happen multiple times a day. Not only that, but one major flaw in many organisations for years has been in the compatibility and interoperability of different hardware and software, meaning that their operating systems are unable to ‘communicate’ with each other.
To combat this issue, the Cisco Spark Board allows for multiple devices to connect and share content that otherwise wouldn’t be possible in other forms, devices, and operating systems.
Gone are the limitations of connectivity, where teams would have to work on the same systems, computers or locations in order to share content and collaborate.
Now, with making use of the Cisco Cloud, users can benefit from continuous workflow and virtual meeting rooms so you can take your work with you wherever you go.
Video and voice conferencing
As one of the main features commonly used by businesses and organisations, Cisco Spark Board’s audio and video conferencing abilities are second to none. With more and more businesses exploring international markets each year, communication with overseas employees is pivotal to success. To achieve this, an effective audio video conferencing device is therefore required to keep ideas and projects on track, so it’s crucial that it works when you need it to in order to eliminate common meeting room problems.

When assessing the Cisco Spark Board’s video and voice conferencing capabilities, it’s clear to see that this is where its true power lies. As a fully self-contained system, the Cisco Spark Board has a 4K LED screen, integrated 4K camera, embedded 12 microphone array with on-board VoiceTrack technology, and a capacitive touch interface; bringing intelligence, style, usability and functionality to meeting rooms – no matter the size!
All too often in large meetings is it hard to determine who’s speaking or what’s being said, but with the Cisco Spark Board you’ll be able to automatically zoom into the user speaking for a clearer understanding. In turn, this provides a more engaging and immersive experience for all involved.
Possibly one of the most popular features of the Cisco Spark Board is the digital whiteboard. Designed to encourage freeform ideas and content sharing, users can share content and ideas using the Cisco Spark Pen or even your finger to relay that across to all users.
Even allowing for instant saving of content in the unfortunate instance of a power cut that in most situations would lead to hours lost of work.
Along with this, the freeform Whiteboard content will show up on all devices wherever the user is, taking the constraints of a meeting room out of the equation. An excellent feature especially for businesses that are looking to expand as meetings are transformed with this all-in-one touch based team collaboration device.
With usability and adaptability being at the forefront of the Cisco Spark Board design and functionality, it’s no surprise that it outshines its competitors and their respective products. With the power to the predict the future still far out of reach, businesses have to adapt to situations rapidly to succeed in a world that’s becoming increasingly more competitive. Therefore, having a video conferencing device that allows for such in your business is an excellent tool to have.

This ease of use is what Cisco is about and it shows in their products; they’re tailor made to address common problems with meetings. As for accessibility, Cisco are offering two sizes of the Cisco Spark Board, which are available in a 55-inch screen larger 70-inch version.
The release of Cisco Spark Board offers businesses an innovative way of improving the way that teams communicate and collaborate on projects. Not only that, but when coupled with MeetingZone’s unmatched support and dedicated account management, you’ll be swiftly on your way to improving your team’s productivity.
