MINNEAPOLIS, MN (July 27, 2015) – Remote collaboration is easier than ever before. From desktops and mobile devices, employees hold ad hoc audio and video conference calls, present and share content, send instant messages, schedule meetings and more. They use cloud-based applications and unified communications (UC) platforms such as Microsoft’s Skype for Business (formerly Lync) or Cisco’s Jabber, to conduct their communication activities. These kinds of tools are intuitive and familiar to users; they consistently have high adoption rates within the business environment because they are so easy to use.

But when employees move to a traditional audiovisual (AV) group collaboration venue, they are frequently disappointed and frustrated. Whether it’s an executive boardroom, a training facility, or a small auditorium, these rooms often lack access to the popular UC platforms and cloud-based content delivery solutions that employees want to use. Instead, users find collaboration solutions that are not familiar or intuitive. Due to the complexity of these systems, the technology often goes unused, unless there is an IT or AV tech available to assist in starting a session.

This white paper looks at the growing business need of blending the capabilities of conventional AV rooms with the simplified, on demand communication and content creation experience provided by UC platforms and cloud-based applications. It explores the subsequent challenges and looks at a simple solution that already exists in most meeting rooms – the PC – to bridge the gap between the two technologies. And in the end, how blending capabilities creates a lower cost, higher adoption UC collaboration experience within a traditional AV group collaboration space.
