In late January, Cisco released their latest piece of collaboration hardware, and further built out Cisco Spark as the long-term conferencing platform, in the form of the Cisco Spark Board.
The device features heavily in plans for the reshaping of the conferencing experience within organisations. In the long-term, the Cisco Spark platform will encapsulate present instant messaging (Cisco Jabber), presence and web conferencing (WebEx) technologies.
The Cisco Spark Board has been designed as the centrepiece for collaboration within organisations, effectively replacing the whiteboard, flip-chart, projector, audio conferencing and/or video conferencing in meeting rooms around the world with a consolidated Smart device that delivers connectivity to workers within proximity or remote / work-from-home employees. On the global scale, 20 per cent of global orders for the device have already come from Australia.
It features the newest componentry available at assembly: a Smart touchscreen with 4K-Quality for video content and specially engineered microphones for acoustic optimisation. In terms of sizing, the first option, 55-inch, has already hit the market – though is highly sought-after and deliveries will be delayed due to the high demand. Meanwhile, a 70-inch version is scheduled for release later this year.
For the release of the Cisco Spark Board, we have available demo devices that can be shipped to customers for Proofs of Concept. If the Cisco Spark Board is something you’d like to trial at Head Office or elsewhere get in contact with your local Comscentre Account Manager or send the request to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can assist in scoping out the project.
