Thought it was time to get back dumping brain bit’s here again…
I made it along to the UC Expo in London this year and managed to grab the keynote from Microsoft. Things are coming, bigger, faster and rad’er (yes the 70’s reference that was needed there) in Teams.
One of the things that stood out was about the additional “things” for meetings, washing out people in front of a background? Yes please…
Being able to bring side views of outside content into view.. another one for me!
I have taken a couple of snippets from the blog to highlight some of my “geeky bits” that are hitting the client sooner rather than later, keep an eye out, it’s going to be awesome (that could be a 70’s reference…)
An inclusive meeting experience for everyone in any room with Microsoft Teams Rooms
In today’s modern workplace, teams come together from around the world to get things done. Microsoft Teams Rooms helps those teams keep everyone engaged and creates an inclusive experience for people in the room and remote viewers.
Today’s update of the Microsoft Teams Rooms app brings a new content camera feature that enables users to intelligently include a traditional whiteboard into their Teams meeting. Powered by Artificial Intelligence in the Microsoft cloud, a dedicated content camera intelligently detects, crops and frames the in-room whiteboard and shares its content with remote meeting participants.
Even when a presenter moves in front of the whiteboard remote participants will be able to see the content right through them.
Remote attendees get a clear view of the whiteboard even when a presenter moves around in front of it, which makes the presentation easier to follow and keeps everyone engaged.
UI Overhaul – Simpler is better…
Over all it’s just getting better, I hung around for a bit wandering in and out all the stands there that pitched the tech, nothing stood out more than MS showing off what’s already becoming the next already embedded product in the UC world. Jump on board!
