SAN JOSE, CALIF., OCTOBER 15, 2019 – Kaptivo, creator of the world’s best-selling whiteboard collaboration system, and AVer Information Inc. today announced a partnership that will enable new options for customers using Zoom Video Communications, Inc. Zoom Rooms product. Under the terms of the partnership, Kaptivo and AVer will work together to certify AVer cameras for use with Kaptivo for Zoom Rooms.
Improving collaboration for ideation, planning and design
Whiteboards are a great tool for impromptu collaboration, such as explaining complex ideas, spontaneous planning or collaborative design. Kaptivo leverages the familiarity of using an existing standard whiteboard and makes it easy to share that content with remote participants in a Zoom meeting. Kaptivo’s patented image processing technology creates a “better than real” augmented collaboration experience for whiteboards.
Kaptivo for Zoom Rooms converts any whiteboard into an affordable digital collaboration system that can share and save whiteboard content digitally. Monthly subscriptions begin at $10 per month per Kaptivo and require a certified camera. Kaptivo provides a wall mounted camera option and will work with AVer to certify the AVer CAM540 and CAM520 PRO as ceiling mounted camera options.
“Kaptivo’s AI-based image processing and computer vision platform is a perfect fit with AVer’s industry leading cameras.” said David Hsieh, CEO at Kaptivo. “Working together we will deliver Zoom Rooms customers the flexibility to use any whiteboard in a better-than-real, integrated collaboration experience and propel enterprise productivity to the next level.”
“Adding a digital whiteboard is a huge disruption to the end user collaborative experience,” said Carl Harvell, Director of Product Marketing of AVer Information Inc, USA. “Partnering with Kaptivo allows us to create an amazing user experience with AVer’s high-quality video conferencing cameras and Kaptivo’s interactive digital whiteboard technology – it’s the perfect combination of functionality meets quality.”
Kaptivo for Zoom Rooms will be generally available on December 1, 2019. Pre-orders can be placed at www.kaptivo.com.
