Achieving Modern Collaboration

Videoconferencing technology connects any workforce.

The consumerization of IT, coupled with the ubiquity of personal messaging, collaboration and video apps, is seeping into business life. When it comes to meetings, modern workforces demand seamless connectivity and instant collaboration.

Today, videoconferencing technology and messaging platforms have evolved to harness wireless, AI, smart devices and IoT to deliver next-gen collaboration capabilities, whether in conference rooms and huddle rooms, or by connecting remote workers from their desks, home offices or while traveling.

But without the right digital workspace solution in place, even the most advanced office environments cannot take advantage of the latest technologies and work streams to support greater productivity, connection, convenience and efficiency. That’s where CDW comes in.

Key considerations in designing a modern digital meeting space
  • What size is the room and what are its characteristics (where are the doors, windows and exits in relation to the seating and displays)?
  • How many people will the room need to accommodate for a meeting?
  • How far away is the furthest seat/person from the microphone/audio endpoints?
  • How do people share content in the room? (HDMI cable? Via an adapter based on a specific computer type? Wirelessly via video endpoint?)
  • What technology is already in place in the room?

Digital Displays and Cameras

The latest displays incorporate modern capabilities like touchscreens, interactive displays, hi-def video, smart features and digital whiteboard functions. And modern cameras are also smarter, enabling facial recognition and integration of usage stats, as well as providing digital sensors that automatically pan, tilt and zoom without loss of resolution and without human intervention. CDW can provide you with the right technology to take videoconferencing and digital collaboration further.
