Update whiteboard with various sized/colored square/rectangle components that allow text and drawings to facilitate collaboration similar to using 'sticky-notes' for brainstorming and design. Also provide a away to indicate who contributed which objects on the board.
Lync Room System
The Lync Room Systems are expensive collaborative devices that provide a great experience when working properly. However when they don't work properly, or need to be reconfigured for some reason, they almost always require an onsite visit and then a time consuming reboot into Administration mode. Often these devices may be in another geographic region, making the ability to remote control and connect to these devices ...more »
Customers really like the Lync Room Systems. They perfectly fit the Lync experience from mobile to table and desktop clients. A very common request is to be able to integrate with legacy (H.323, or SIP (H.264) videoconferencing endpoints. Sometimes customers have 100+ of those Cisco or Polycom endpoints. I would like to suggest a way for those endpoints to dial into the AVMCU. Either throught the upcoming Skype4Business ...more »
In most environments there is already a conference environment. One of the great assets of a Microsoft world is flexibility to do things your own way. So I would like to see a downloadable version of LRS as software from VLCS that you can install on a custom PC. Plug in to you preexisting TV or projector then add a mic, webcam and Lync control panel and have a “God enough” Room system. Having to use a prepackaged solution ...more »
Just because we are using a Lync Room System doesn't mean that every call is a video call. We should have an option to set the LRS to start all calls as audio only.
When dialing a phone number using a Lync room system a reverse look up is done in AD and if a number is found then that person is called via Lync to Lync. For instance, trying to call a colleague (who is EV enabled and uses Lync regularly) on his/her mobile phone produces a Lync - Lync call instead of calling the cell phone as originally intended.
It would be great to have a small touch PC offering the LRS functionality and then having this displayed to the whiteboard using a projector.
This would allow more interactive presentations at universities or in bigger conference rooms.
One of the selling points for LRS is the idea of being able to collaborate on a shared touch whiteboard with others remotely. I recently tried an LRS out and found that the Lync software does not suport multi-touch. So you can only use 1 finger (or pen) at a time. The idea for improvement is for Lync LRS edition to support multi-touch whiteboards. This should also transpire over to Lync client on tablets and any multi-touch ...more »
