Samsung and Cisco partner on workplace transformation

Videoconference has become the go-to technology during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many have to work from home or remote locations as companies adapt to a new way of working. Samsung Electronics HK and Cisco are teaming up to transform modern workplaces using Cisco Webex and Samsung’s Flip 2 digital flip chart.

The strategic partnership aims to expedite workplace transformation by giving users everything needed to easily set up any huddle space for video conferencing.

“There is a growing need for enhanced collaboration both offline and online.. Especially in the current environment, different companies and co-workers from different departments will use online resources to handle daily work and business. Samsung and Cisco have come together to provide businesses with an unprecedented seamless meeting experience with Webex on Flip, create an innovative and interactive real-time video conferencing solution for enterprises,” said said Ellen Fu, Vice President of CE & Enterprise Business at Samsung Electronics HK.

The Webex on Flip solution gives users in different locations the ability to notate, co-create and collaborate through the Webex cloud platform. Meeting participants in different locations can share the screen in real-time for a better meeting experience.

The One Button to Join function lets users set up a join button when there is a scheduled Webex video conference coming up soon. Participants can then join the meeting in one click, simplifying the log-in process.

A touch-out functionality allows users to sync their personal devices to the Samsung Flip 2 for real-time content sharing and control.

Artificial intelligence (AI)-powered capabilities automatically centralise participants’ faces on screen and cancel background noise. They also minimise lag in video playback, and eliminate echo and lip-syncing issues to create a smooth videoconferencing experience.
