Cisco Webex Board offers unique features to meeting rooms in ONE device:
a) wireless presentation/screen sharing
b) whiteboard solution with unique features
c) video meeting room endpoint to make/receive video calls and join video conferences (Webex Board has embedded leading edge 4K Video camera to deliver unique video experience).
Webex Board (ex-SparkBoard) comes in two flavors : 55-inch and 70-inch display.
Webex Board use cases
a) Use inside Webex Teams for Video meetings and whiteboarding
Primary function/use case of Webex Board is to participate in Webex Teams meetings (Webex Teams video meetings happen inside Webex Teams spaces). So apart from the excellent video experience you have (and share PC content if you like), the extra thing is that you can use whiteboarding in a very easy way.
For example: User has joined video meeting inside Webex Teams space A for example. User at some point during the video meeting decides to use whiteboarding. He/she starts drawing on Webex Board and at any point user likes, he/she can share with other participants that are in the Webex Teams meeting. If desired, participants can coannotate (one user from Webex Board, other user from laptop, other from smartphone, etc.) on same whiteboard session. Nice thing is that whiteboards are automatically saved inside the Webex Teams space A.
Whiteboarding is a unique experience and moves meetings to a new level.
Ask your Cisco partner or Cisco Account Manager for a demo!
b) Use Webex Board as a SIP device to make calls to standards-based SIP endpoints or MCUs
Here Webex Teams is not in the picture. As Webex Board registers in Cisco cloud for callcontrol, it will get a SIP URI address and it can make/receive calls to/from any standards-based SIP Video endpoint or MCU over internet (Cisco or non-Cisco). Common example is to join Webex Meetings (cisco cloud MCU).
So in summary, you can use it as a ''standards'' video device (share content from laptop via HDMI, etc.)
Note1: When used in such calls, note that whiteboarding is not yet available (planned). Whiteboarding is only available in video meetings inside Webex Teams only.
Updated : this was added so you can have whiteboarding from Webexboard inside Webex Meetings. For more details on this see my community post here:
