Solutions that promote efficient collaboration – a key issue in today’s business world

The unified communications sector made significant forward strides over the course of 2017. Unified communications refers to the integration into a given work environment of communication media such as classic telephony, video conferences, email, voicemail and instant messaging – the goal being to make it easier, in a host of different ways, to communicate with external partners to make collaboration and partnership more efficient, and thus expedite business processes.

collaboration solutions

And while implementation in this realm – which is being driven by initiatives for digital transformation in numerous modern companies – has done wonders for collaboration between the relevant users, in the wake of years of capital investment for innovation the time has now come when ROI simply must be achieved. This situation is subjecting today’s IT teams to enormous pressure. IT department managers need to ensure that a dependable network infrastructure can be provided that meets the requirements of cloud-based services – and at the same time allows for an exceptional customer experience.

Telecommunication solutions are simply indispensable in today’s business world

Audio and video communication has become an absolutely essential tool in virtually all of today’s companies. Studies have shown that up to 40 percent of all business communication is now realized via videoconferences. The trend that is prompting ever growing numbers of employees to communicate via solutions that are geared to and promote collaboration is set to pick up speed this year, particularly in companies that are building out their implementation of team messaging and telecommunciation solutions.

collaboration solutionsAnother key element in this regard is browser-based and in-app communication. Direct integration of real-time multimedia communication functions enables companies to greatly improve the productivity and interactivity of their customers. Most interactions with customers now take place online, whether in the form of online live chat with partners or employees, or by dint of the ability to exchange ideas with business partners in real time via any device.

ConX Cloud: a sector-wide collaboration solution

Virtual cloud-based conference rooms enable users to communication with anyone they wish to, at any time. Thanks to the interoperability of SIP, H.323 and Skype for business, internal and external partners can now “attend” all types of meetings using virtually any device and a broad range of collaboration solutionsvideoconferencing services. ConX also supports dual-stream video and data feeds – which, being cloud-based, enable customers and users to interact with each other either in real time or in alternation, and to participate, live, in presentations, data sharing and other initiatives.

Videoconferencing technology and telecommunication solutions have undergone a sea change over the past decade or so. Whereas in the early days of this evolution, cloud-based videoconferencing was only available in a handful of very large companies, cloud services such as videotelephony and ConX Cloud have become an indispensable element of today’s work environments.

InFocus breaks the local limitations of digital whiteboards with ConX

As they do each year, InFocus participated at InfoComm in Orlando (USA) this year. InfoComm is the largest pro-AV fair in North America, with over 1,000 exhibitors from 110 countries. It is a must for every visitor who feels “at home” in fields of unified communications and collaboration, digital screens, and video and control systems..


This year, InFocus again showed significant efforts and presented its ConX Whiteboard. This is an interactive whiteboard that can be shared by all participants of the ConX Cloud together. The only condition is that a participant must be dialled in from a Mondopad in the ConX space – no matter from where or from what network. Those who have not dialled from a Mondopad can see the Whiteboard, but still cannot interact with it. This function will be the next step in the ConX Whiteboard development.

Working together anywhere in real time – virtually any device at anytime

With ConX Cloud, teams can now work more comfortably and flexibly than ever before. It is ideal for small team meetings, but also for large-scale conferences or company-wide meetings. The ConX Virtual Conference Room solution provides much of what is necessary for networking, collaboration, ideas, and information. An important aspect is that ConX gives participants the freedom and flexibility to actively take part in virtual conferences, regardless of which device or operating system is being used.

The ConX Cloud Virtual Conference Room solution video conference system from InFocus also offers a trouble-free, integrated co-working option with devices and conferencing solutions from other manufacturers. InFocus places great emphasis on compatibility with other systems and high functionality, since the real world is very versatile.

ConX Cloud – Teamwork in real time

ConX Cloud enables reliable video conferencing and high-performance teamwork from virtually any location – in real time. The Cloud not only shows a single-sided presentation of data in a meeting, but also distributes the common work in all directions, so that all participants can see each other and the information at the same time.

In ConX Cloud, the connectivity and communication platforms are essential advantages, because the video conference system is interoperable with SIP, H.323, and Skype for Business. The video conference participants can make presentations, comment, create, edit, share, save, and send information in real time – and all of this can be done via a whole selection of endpoints and services with InFocus and other existing devices. This is a close equivalent to a conference in person.

ConX Whiteboard and Mondopad

ConX Cloud gives users the opportunity to join and connect, from many different end-devices, but Mondopad is one of the most versatile terminals. With it, teams become capable of sharing all kinds of content, even video or audio documents, with all other present and externally connected people. From now on, Mondopad will support the new ConX whiteboard function. Each ConX conference participant who uses Mondopad – no matter from what location he accessed the virtual conference room – can now work on the same whiteboard, like all other ConX participants. This means he can highlight fields, add text or graphical images, change content, or simply use annotations. The Whiteboard content is stored in the Cloud and can then be then comfortably distributed to all participants.

touch display

The Mondpad offers all the features which usually require multiple devices in traditional conference rooms: large touch display, HD video conferencing system, interactive whiteboard, 1080p or 4K screen, audio conference system, and a powerful Windows PC. The ConX whiteboard function allows all team members to work together on the same whiteboard. Make your presentations with an intuitive user interface, add annotations, and save documents to be passed into the network. The overall product package is completed by a high-quality camera and loudspeakers.

Thanks to its affiliation to the ConX Whiteboard, the Mondopad is an outstanding teamwork system that easily and reliably connects people, devices, and information immediately upon start up.

ConX Cloud Personal – Video conferencing system, now with one-year free trial

This means that people outside your organization can also participate in meetings by using most any device and a wide range of video conferencing services.

In the virtual ConX meeting room you can participate in the meeting by dialling in it from nearly any kind of terminal device including smartphones and tablets, any PC or Mac, ConX devices like the InFocus Mondopad and ConX video phone or other SIP or H.323 terminals. This feature is especially convenient during business trips or for negotiations with customers, since they will be able to use their already existing hardware.

video conferencing system

The ConX Cloud solution also offers a dual-stream video and data feed, allowing you to simultaneously or alternately (depending on the hardware) communicate with people and participate in presentations, data, and other contents in real time. This is made possible thanks to its base via the Cloud.

Video call, telephony and face-to face: The inconvenient truth about meetings

Meetings, i.e. discussions at a fixed date, have fallen into disrepute in many companies. Very few employees consider their regular meetings as really useful and as profitable for their work.

How much damage do meetings really cause? Why are meetings that unproductive? And how is it possible to organize better meetings? We show you the benefits of a video call in meetings…

video call

Damages caused by a meeting without a video conferencing system

Actually, such a meeting is a very useful matter where to share information, develop solutions and bring projects to a successful conclusion.

In reality, however, very few meetings are really effective, on the contrary: They cause costs and waste time. A US study showed that meetings generate opportunity costs amounting to 37 billion US dollars annually.

In more than 25 million meetings every day, employees in the US waste their time. If meetings will not be made more efficient in the future, for example by the use of a video conferencing system, those figures will continue to rise.

Already now, the numbers are alarming: The middle management spends 35 percent of the working time in meetings nowadays, the upper management spends as much as 50 percent of total working time in meetings. The most important thing is that executive staff indicates 67 percent of the meetings as failures.

Ineffective meetings without video call – a root cause analysis

The study shows clearly why meetings without video call rarely lead to success: A total of 92 per cent of the participants in addition deal with other things during a meeting. As a result, however, the duration of a meeting is delayed, the concentration capacity of the individual employees decreases, and thus also the density of the information exchange.

The experts classify the lack of involvement of remote employees as another reason for ineffective meetings. For participants of a meeting that are not connected via video conferencing system but via the telephone it is difficult to follow the course.

Since 80 percent of the messages that a person sends are coming from his body language, this important variable is missing in the communication. In addition, meetings often fail due to inadequate planning. Poor preparation and a poor build-up of the meeting reduce its chances of success.

Helpful tips for a successful meeting

We have compiled some helpful tips for you in order to make the next meeting in the company a great success:
1. Plan the meeting to be as compact as possible, never let it last longer than 30 minutes.
2. Process a specific agenda and include it in the presentation material. You will meet real expectations.
3. Obtaining required materials in advance will save time for profitable discussions.
4. Start and close the meeting on time and show this way that you respect the schedule of each individual.
5. Avoid monologues. Include all participants in the meeting.
6. Stay focused and do not allow yourself to be distracted by other things like emails or social networks.
If you want to successfully manage a meeting, whether with or without a video conferencing system, you should always ask: Is this meeting really necessary? Which employees actually have to participate? And: What can I do to make sure my meeting passes by interactively and focusingly?

Our tip:

A video call can raise a meeting to a new level. It is that participants of a meeting with a video conferencing system can concentrate on the discussions demonstrably better in the meeting and are distracted 57% less by other things.

Video calls improve the commitment of the participants, which supports decision-making and increases the productivity of the team.
