Vivitek, the brand of visual display products, has launched a new white paper, outlining Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) collaboration and the demands for this solution in both the education and corporate spheres. With the rapid emergence of audio-visual and ICT technologies, the changing methods of working and learning have led to a rapid increase in the need for group collaboration. This latest invaluable resource from Vivitek aims to inform those interested in BYOD of the pertinent issues when specifying a solution.
Driven by the increase in usage of technology such as tablets, the BYOD market has exploded in recent years, with investors seeing the potential advantages of effective collaboration in many types of organisations. Drafted by Vivitek experts, the concise 10-page white paper provides a wealth of important information carefully designed to outline the benefits of BYOD, highlight common concerns regarding it, and discuss the implementation of a BYOD system.
Vivitek's collaboration solution is NovoConnect, a small box packed with features. Costing a fraction of some high-end products, it allows for seamless distributed display and control between PC, Mac, tablet and smartphone devices to create a fully interactive presentation and collaboration environment. The fully wireless communication enables content sharing across multiple devices and the unit is compatible with Windows, Mac OS, Chromebook, iOS and Android operating systems. It is ideal for classrooms and conference rooms, and includes a range of classroom tools in its software.
Holger Graeff, General Manager, Vivitek EMEA says, "We have noticed a surge in demand for collaborative solutions in the workplace as well as the classroom. We hope this information will empower businesses with the relevant knowledge to ensure that they are able to make an informed decision to get the right solution for them.
"Research suggests that a wireless collaborative system can be hugely beneficial. A BYOD solution has the potential to increase productivity and boost employee or teacher-student satisfaction. The cost of a solution is also often much less expensive than people realise, so we believe it is important that we highlight these points in a considered manner. We feel that NovoConnect provides an excellent solution, boosting engagement and interaction at schools and businesses."
