I love whiteboards. There, I said it. I have a genuine obsession with grabbing several engineers and solving a problem on a giant blank canvas.
That's why I was extremely excited to find the new Snap to Whiteboard Feature on the Cisco Room Series endpoints. The feature allows you to set the location of a whiteboard in the room for the Cisco endpoint. When a speaker stands next to the whiteboard, the whiteboard and user AUTOMATICALLY frame in a single shot. Yes, automatically frame. Snap to Whiteboard builds off of Cisco's SpeakerTrack technology which utilizes facial recognition and audio triangulation to find and focus on active speakers.
Can you tell I'm impressed? Good, now here's how to set it up.
You must have a Cisco Room Series device. Older devices such as the MX and SX series endpoints allow for setting a whiteboard preset on the touch panel but do not support Snap to Whiteboard.
Head over to the Touch10 control and follow these easy steps on Cisco's site. I had mine setup in less than 5 minutes.
Enjoy even more whiteboard time!
Hint: This works great on flip charts, agile boards, or any other feature that you want automatically framed into the camera shot!
