One of the largest product themes of InfoComm 2017 was collaboration. That word can mean a lot to many these days: it’s been quite some time since it simply referred to two people sitting in a room working on the same problem. Employees don’t even have to be in the same country to collaborate anymore.
InfoComm 2017 has come and gone, but the collaboration products that were showcased there will have a lasting impact on the AV industry. From hardware to software, systems to platforms, solutions to devices to accessories and more, companies at InfoComm displayed their latest and greatest products.

Perhaps your form of collaboration involves using a device to connect to a display and share content with those in the room. Maybe it’s connecting through a videoconferencing suite for a facsimile of being in the same space as your team. It could be that, at your organization, the word means working on dynamic content in real time from different areas all over the world through a complicated AV system.
Truly, collaboration is all of the above. It’s presentation, conferencing, and connecting. It can still be as simple as two people in the same room, writing ideas down on an interactive whiteboard, saving their work, and sending it to key members to review when finished. It can get as complicated as several teams in different spaces around the country annotating a shared document, with that annotation showing up in real time on each screen. Whatever your method, the products coming out of InfoComm 2017 will help you accomplish a workplace goal better than ever before with intuitive technological breakthroughs.
