The global pandemic jump-started the hybrid meeting trend - where meeting participants join a synchronous collaboration session from both inside a meeting room and from the far end.
This ‘far end’ means joining a meeting from another office, your home, a coffee shop, you name it…
T1V collaboration solutions were built for flexibility. There are many features in ThinkHub that support connecting face-to-face with video conferencing applications, while also utilizing the massive, interactive Canvas for a team meeting.
Application Engineer Molly Garrett talks us through how ThinkHub Dock can be used during collaborative hybrid meetings with video conferencing in our latest T1V in 3 video.
Let’s imagine you’re in a hybrid meeting scenario, and you’re in-room - while other meeting attendees are joining remotely.
In this example, there is a main interactive touchscreen in the meeting room and a ThinkHub Dock featured to the side of the screen, as a smaller, extra display.
There is an array of content on the ThinkHub Canvas on the main display - presentation decks, images, videos and more. Also on your Canvas is a video conferencing application - in this example, Zoom.
ThinkHub Dock allows the user in-room to simply ‘dock’ the video conference window onto the second screen with a single tap. The video conferencing window remains docked - so you can see your video conferencing participants and interact with them - all while having the freedom to interact and move across the ThinkHub Canvas at the same time.
Another way to use ThinkHub Dock for video conferencing in a hybrid meeting is as a ‘confidence monitor.’ To do this, select share your screen in the video conferencing menu - but this time, you’ll share the Dock.
Whatever content you have on the ThinkHub Dock - whether it’s the actual Canvas with multiple pieces of content you are comparing side by side - or an individual piece of content like a Microsoft Excel sheet, you can be sure your attendees are seeing what you want them to.
Most importantly, ThinkHub Dock enables you to be able to continue to interact with the Canvas at your leisure and share different types of content on the Canvas while on a video conference.
ThinkHub Dock is a key ingredient to a hybrid meeting with video conferencing, as it allows you to continue to visualize massive amounts of content in an organized way.
When you’re in-room, you can broadcast content out to remote users seamlessly with ThinkHub Dock.
