Not like this, we suspect
When we begin the return to the office, how will we work together while maintaining social distancing? How will we collaborate even with colleagues who are physically present with us?
How will a group that needs to meet to discuss a project, share their thoughts and plans? If we just make calls over a conferencing platform to colleagues across the hall, we might just as well stay at home and reduce the risk of infection.
Until we have an effective vaccine, we will need to continue social distancing
One thing that may help is the ability to share content wirelessly so that we can be in the same physical space (while maintaining a proper distance), having a decent face-to-face discussion while sharing content on our mobile devices.
The Huddle Hub One (HHO) could help here because it does something unique in its class called re-broadcasting
So a group get together in a meeting room, a casual meeting area or anywhere within range of the corporate WiFi/LAN. They log in to an available HHO Smart Room (a virtual meeting room) and then start sharing content from their laptop, tablet or smartphone. Content can be shared by one participant at a time or multiple participants can share content simultaneously. Either way, the currently shared content will be streamed back – re-broadcasted – to each logged-in mobile display.
It’s not mandatory but, if there’s an available large format display in the meeting space, this can also be used to show the shared content.
What About the (Remote) Workers? If remote colleagues need to join, any logged-in device can be used to establish the call using the video service-of-choice and the far end will be seen on every device sharing in the Smart Room.
Wireless Professional Video Calls: There is even an HHO model that can be installed in the meeting room and which will allow participants to conference wirelessly using the installed professional AV. So a participant can launch a video call from their mobile device but utilise the installed room camera, audio sub-system, local large format display etc. delivering a high-quality professional collaboration session which can still be viewed simultaneously by any local participant on their own mobile device if they wish.
