The folks at InFocus have come up with an interesting relatively inexpensive approach to collaboration that combines the attributes of a white board with video conferencing.
The MondoPad, which is now exclusively being distributed in the U.S. by Ingram Micro, in based on 55-in, whiteboard that is based on an Intel i5 processor. As such, the system can access a video conferencing service from Vidtel to not only enhance the overall collaboration experience, but also connect with just about any other video conferencing or unified communications application.
According to Jim Reddy, InFocus vice president of sales, two MondoPad systems can be connected on a point to point basis. But the systems themselves can be connected to any number of video conferencing end points that want to participate in a discussion. The system itself can be remote managed over a WiFi connection and can be treated as just another end point by any number of managed services platforms.
Priced at $5,949, Reddy says MondoPad is an innovative approach that makes it a lot more practical for organizations of all sizes to collaborate, while giving resellers an offering that is not only differentiated from everything else on the market, but actually solves some real-world collaboration problems in a way that most businesses can afford.Tags: whiteboard, video conferencing, Ingram Micro, collaboration, Vidtel, MondoPad, resellers, InFocus
