Microsoft today announced Skype for Business broadcast meetings letting you broadcast meetings up to 10,000 people real-time, and supporting dynamic playback. At Ignite, Microsoft showed how Hololens takes meetings from 2-D video to 3-D holograms with a mind-blowing look into how companies are using this technology.

Moving forward, every meeting scheduled in Office 365 will automatically be a Skype for Business meeting, so users don’t have to do anything additional to make every meeting a video meeting.  And, with 830 million meetings scheduled with Office 365 each month, that just made a lot of meetings a lot more productive!  But, video meetings need to be as simple and seamless as walking into a conference room and sitting down. With the roll-out of the new Skype for Business experience, we are seeing this happen.
