Collaboration manufacturer Kaptivo has announced the availability of Kaptivo Enterprise, a micro-optical camera and software system that converts dry-erase boards into digital whiteboards for content sharing across teams.
Designed to meet the needs of large organisations, Kaptivo Enterprise is the next generation of the Kaptivo whiteboard camera system that launched in 2016.
Designed to address the problem of employees attempting to share information via insecure whiteboard photos or inadequate videoconferencing cameras, Kaptivo claims to provide a more efficient and secure solution; its automatic image capture and live streaming enable teams to focus on the discussion instead of on snapping whiteboard photos on personal devices.
“We developed Kaptivo Enterprise to better meet the requirements of our customers as they seek to solve the universal challenges of information security and remote collaboration,” said Nic Lawrence, co-founder and CEO of Kaptivo.
Employees can securely livestream crystal-clear whiteboard images through the web or videoconferencing platforms, providing remote colleagues instant access to the latest content on any device, anywhere. Kaptivo Enterprise further addresses the challenge of information security in the enterprise. With superior quality whiteboard images, employees choose to use Kaptivo over alternative photo methods. SSL encryption and approval protocol for whiteboard sessions give teams granular control over content, and the option to connect via Ethernet provides added security.
The Kaptivo camera, which attaches to the top of any whiteboard, automatically saves images and shares content in real time via livestream or videoconference integration. The images are instantly enhanced to remove any reflections, glare and people blocking the board. Content changes are compiled into ready-to-go, multi-page timeline presentations of the meeting.
“Kaptivo Enterprise represents a milestone in enterprise collaboration. No product to date has successfully enabled companies to bridge the gap between virtual and offline collaboration in a secure and streamlined fashion,” added Adrian Cable, co-founder and CTO of Kaptivo.
Kaptivo Enterprise is available now; the price includes the Kaptivo hardware and three-year cloud service (SaaS) licence. There will also be options to purchase SaaS in one and five-year increments.
The availability of Kaptivo Enterprise precedes the autumn launch of Kaptivo Education, a whiteboard image capture device to enhance visual learning and enable student collaboration.
Kaptivo Enterprise will be on show on stand N1916 in the North Hall at InfoComm 2018.
