Cisco Unveils Android-powered, Touchscreen Collaboration Screen

Cisco introduced an Android-based desktop collaboration screen that consolidates Cisco IP phone, HD video conferencing, Web browsing, whiteboarding and collaboration tools. It features a hardened version of Android, H.265 codecs, and four wide-band microphones with dynamic noise reduction technology. The device is open for 3rd party applications. Two versions will be offered with pricing for a 24-inch touchscreen version at under $2,000.

+Cisco is also expanding on its WebEx platform to deliver what it calls "Collaborative Meeting Rooms" in the cloud.  Attendees will be able to join the hosted meetings whether they choose a Cisco video endpoint, standards-based video endpoints, or desktop/mobile software clients.  Cisco said its solution can accommodate more concurrent users than any other enterprise-grade solution on the market.
