InFocus Corp. has recently revealed the Mondopad, a 55-inch HD wall tablet. It uses Vidtel's cloud-based video conferencing to let remote users collaborate from anywhere on any device, with intuitive touch collaboration applications for an all-in-one collaboration display.
The Mondopad connects to all SIP and H.323 standards-based endpoints as well as several priority video conferencing platforms, and requires no upfront infrastructure investment or IT resources. As Vidtel has located and solved several interoperability issues with video conferencing, organizations need not adopt the same equipment and services as external partners to connect.
It has a 720p HD video camera and soundbar, designed for video conferencing with reduced room clutter and enhanced audio quality. Furthermore, its 55-inch HD screen is designed for multi-touch, offering a 1080p LCD display.
Mondopad's touch screen works with a wide variety of programs, including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and PDF, as well as presentation, whiteboard, and annotation applications that come included. Multiple Mondopads can be used on the same network, supporting multi-party whiteboard sessions. It allows local or remote viewers to share, view, and control presentations from outside computers, tablets, or smartphones, as well as a web page served by the Mondopad. IT administrators and managed service providers can monitor and manage it from anywhere, with the embedded INtel vPro technologies and its compatibility with industry-leading remote monitoring and management software.
According to UCStrategies UC Expert Pamela Avila: “Every now and then someone develops a product that stirs the imagination and opens doors on new possibilities. The Mondopad, from my own sneak preview, certainly falls into that category. VARs/MSPs, telecom dealers and AV dealers will have an abundance of opportunities to revisit existing customers as well as reach into new markets with this collaboration offering that is as suitable for SME customers as it is for enterprise customers.”
Mondopad will be available in July 2011, costing $5,949, with its video conferencing services at around $49 per connection each month. For more information, visit www.infocus.com.
