Cisco has announced the latest addition to their portfolio of collaborative video conferencing devices, the Cisco Spark™ Board. The Cisco Spark Board is an all-in-one system contained in a 4K resolution 55-inch touch-enabled, 350 nit edge-lit LED screen. The Spark Board combines everything needed for collaboration into one device and connects it to the cloud for continuous workflow ease.
The Spark Board has an integrated 4K camera, 12 embedded microphones and a two-point capacitive touch interface. The Spark Board can serve as a wireless presentation screen, a digital whiteboard, and an audio and video conferencing system in an all-in-one device. The device itself can be placed into a physical meeting room and be used to enhance collaborative meetings there and also activated to securely connect with other teams and participants virtually anywhere else through the Cisco Spark service via Cisco Spark app-enabled devices.
The Cisco Spark service combines meeting, messaging, calling and new white-boarding capabilities and works with the Cisco Collaboration Cloud so that teamwork projects created on the Spark Board can be stored in the cloud in a virtual Cisco Spark space, all with end-to-end encryption to keep content and communications secure. This allows work to be accessed before, during and after the meeting from any location. The Cisco Spark Board solution offers an integrated, secure and comprehensive life-cycle approach to teamwork.
The Cisco Spark Board has been designed with minimal wires for the sake of simplicity and elegance, but is built with optional HDMI connectivity for the sake of versatility. The Cisco Spark Board has also been designed to be an affordable, easy to install and easy to use all-in-one solution to meet the conferencing and collaborative needs of any organization.
