R.I.P. Conference Room Projection Cable

You walk into a conference room, and you have a simple task – project your laptop screen onto the screen at the end of the conference room. Yet, until now, this simple task has been really hard. It’s time for this cable to meet its end. Today, we’ve shipped an update to Cisco Spark that will once and for all end the evil tyranny of the conference-room projection cable.

We’re Happy to Oblige

My biggest take-away from today’s set of announcements? Customers just cannot get enough of Cisco video collaboration products.

Continuing the Evolution of Video

Enterprises have made major investments in video endpoints and continue to do so—with good reason. Would you personally want to attend a two-day strategy meeting via iPhone or Skype? I doubt it.

Greasing the Video Collaboration Skids

I talk to customers virtually everyday as part of my job, and even though they thoroughly believe in the operational and transformative benefits of video collaboration, they tell me there’s still more we can do to help simplify the process for implementing video pervasively. So, at Cisco’s Collaboration Summit last week, we unveiled a host […]
