Cisco Webex Board Series

The Cisco Webex board is designed not only for audio/video meetings with sharing needs, but to make collaboration meetings impeccable. Mixed with Webex Meetings and/or Webex App (formerly Webex Teams), you'll get the ultimate collaboration experience. You can keep tracking of all docs/whiteboards you worked on and share it easily across the team. Unfortunately, it is a high end product, so may not fit in all budgets.

I find Polycom RealPresence to be useful when having one on one conversations in purpose built rooms for video conferencing. That is where the quality of the product shines. However, I dislike using Polycom Real Presence for any sort of content sharing because of the issues around resolution.If I need to share content of any kind, I prefer to use other teleconferencing solutions.

Cons

Cisco Webex Board Series

  • If you are not a Webex Teams user there could be an easier way to save the whiteboards. They autosave into Teams but if you don't have that it's a clunky process to email the whiteboard to yourself. Not terrible, but not easy either.
  • They could make a mobile cart for these as you have to do to a third party to get a mobile cart and I would like to see a Cisco version of this.

As with all Cisco Support, there is no problem to say. Sometimes its longer but generally in 24 hours, the case is resolved. We never did any RMA for this type of device. We recommended the Cisco support for the Cisco Webex Board. Also, in case of a problem, you have a good Cisco community.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Webex Board Series

Cisco Webex is best integrated between all apps and devices. The Webex boards are specially designed to work with Webex. Other vendors often have apps on not best suited devices and that causes many issues.

Polycom RealPresence Immersive Studio

Polycom RealPresence is really only the preferred teleconferencing solution when using a purpose built room for a scheduled face to face meeting. For ad hoc video meetings, Hangouts, Skype, and Slack all provide fewer friction points for average use cases. In fact, as Google accounts are nearly ubiquitous at this point, Hangouts has almost become the de facto standard for ad hoc video conferencing amongst our users.

Return on Investment

Cisco Webex Board Series

  • Hard to say...! To be honest, this a toy for big kids!
  • Price is high, so you must have collaboration needs, not only meetings needs to pay for that plus value.

Polycom RealPresence Immersive Studio

  • Personally we have not gotten our money's worth, but this is not Polycom's fault, it is because users found it difficult to use.
  • As for me personally, I used it for video conferencing, but my job was to make sure that it was operational for video conferencing.
  • As stated earlier, even though I found it very easy to use, my users did not, and as such tended to video conference with other apps.
