Thinking out of the box gave us a new perspective!! Bringing a white board in front of your seat is a baby step towards making all your Video Meetings Successful!!jeeshan grewal
It was during my visit to the local presentations when I saw people in the meetings were struggling to see the whiteboard notes and content of board. This problem was faced more by people, sitting in the back row.
Normal range of seeing a whiteboard clearly is up to 12 feet, beyond that content is not clearly visible to the people sitting behind.
In the absence of clarity of vision and small text on the board, participants of meeting were unable to take home what was discussed in the meeting.
Same problem I observed in training programs of an organization or teaching institutes where students of back rows were unable to gather the exact content taught in the classrooms.
That was the time when suddenly an idea crossed my mind – if this whiteboard would have been placed in front of all the participants it would have been easier for them to see the whiteboard notes clearly. This out of the box idea slowly took the shape of our AltraTouchContent monitors.
In depth in house research went on and finally we were successful in developing an on–table collaboration solution which could work both as a whiteboard as well as blackboard and have the capability of annotation on presentations.
We did enough experimentations in our local meetings as well as in our far site video meetings before launching the product to the market.
It suited all kinds of local meetings as well as far site video meetings with its wonderful capabilities to work both as whiteboard as well as blackboard and did well for teaching / trainings institutes where students have the need, not only to see the content clearly but also to get the progress of whiteboard notes.
We started working on the same presentation and found our work more productive with its annotation capabilities. Now it was easier for all the participants to work on the same presentation, annotate on it with the option of multiple colors pens and save the notes.
It was easier for us to save the progress of whiteboard notes now, we could save, email, print whiteboard notes on the fly just with a press of button and best part is whenever we do not need them, and they could go inside the table with a press of button keeping the tables clutter free.
A novel concept was borne just by thinking out of the box!!
I am quite hopeful – this concept will be quite useful for organizations as well as Training/ Teaching institutes and meetings and trainings will be more productive.
