Conference room

Scenario: Conference room with interactive whiteboard, speakerphone and HD-webcamera

This scenario supports multiple people in a meeting room, attending a netmeeting via Adobe Connect. Speakerphone, here ClearOne 150, is a combined speaker and microphone to ensure that meeting participants can hear each other without echo. Along with the internet connected computer, the speakerphone provide the basis for the netmeeting.

The interactive whiteboard, here SmartBoard 685, ensures that attendees can sit relaxed and follow the video of the virtual participants, slides, presentations, illustrations, text, etc. Eyes are more relaxed when using a large screen and people are not locked to a laptop.

For example, the participants in the physical meeting room can go up to the whiteboard and hold a presentation, write and draw on the board. Other virtual participants in the netmeeting can follow the activities, and even write and draw on the whiteboard as well.

A participant in the physical meeting room can grab the small interactive pen tablet, Wacom Graphire, and interact with the large whiteboard without having to go up to the whiteboard.

A high resolution HD webcam, in the top right corner of the picture, capture the entire meeting room, so that all the virtual meeting participants can see the participants in the physical meeting room.

This scenario will support a variety of meeting types, including decision-making meetings, coordination meetings, presentations, brainstorming, lecturing, etc.
