HP today entered the market of collaborative digital whiteboards with its new SharedBoard. Even though the HP SharedBoard is not a direct competitor, it will compete with Microsoft’s Surface Hub and Google’s Jamboard for meeting room walls. HP Sharedboard is a simple solution when compared to its competitors. Instead of huge digital touch screen displays, it offers a real-time feed of dry-erase whiteboard activity to remote participants, along with a digital capture that can be easily shared following a meeting. Remote attendees can watch the feed through a secure online connections using a web browser.
Users can record and save meeting annotations, drawings, and more as Adobe PDF files. The Timeline feature will allow them to scroll back and forward through their content. The main highlight of this solution is its simplicity. You have to just mount the given camera on the wall above your whiteboard, connect its cable to the control pad, and plug the power cord into any wall outlet. Once initial setup is done, press the start button to start sharing your screen.
HP SharedBoard will be available for purchase in December.
