Attributes of a successful collaborative setup

solutions collaboration2

Collaboration has become an intrinsic part of any presentation or brainstorming activity. The need for participants, whether they are in the same room, a remote office or any other location, to actively participate, has become a necessity.

Teams want a collaborative experience whereby any participant can not only share content, but annotate over or make changes to content. This lends itself to a more immersive and rich experience for participants and encourages ideas and participation by all.

Where is collaboration most used?

Collaboration is used in many market segments. The most common of which are training, education and corporate. It is also invaluable for "brain storming" and other group decision making and problem-solving activities.

What are the key attributes of a successful collaborative setup?

Collaboration equipment needs to be simple to use and intuitive. A presenter should be able to start presenting with very little training or set-up time.

The display has to be sized according to the room to enable delegates at the back to read the text, bearing in mind that a presenter of short stature still needs to reach the top of the screen.

The touch surface must be accurate, multi-touch and responsive. It must respond much like the smart phones and tablets that we have become used to.

It should include software to enable a presenter to annotate over other programmes that do not necessarily support touch. It should also include a "Whiteboard program" which can be used instead of the traditional whiteboard or flip chart.

It should support wireless connectivity to support "Bring-your-own-device (BYOD)" functionality to enable all delegates to participate.
