Huddly just launched a whiteboarding solution for home or work applications called Canvas. This AI-based content camera connects via USB connection and allows both the primary and Canvas camera to be on at the same time while on a Microsoft Teams or Zoom video call.
Everyone would likely agree that whiteboarding is the original collaboration tool. And, Canvas is easy to use and doesn’t require users to learn any new technology as, when you’re in a video call, you can share an enhanced stream of the whiteboard by merely clicking the content camera button. Canvas is certified as a Microsoft Teams content camera and is recognized as a whiteboard camera in both Teams Rooms and Zoom Rooms.
Here’s a video showing how it works:
Using Huddly’s AI technology on the camera, Canvas can enhance/improve the whiteboard image in real-time (aka: removes the gloss and shadows from the image, boosts marker colors and hides people standing in front of the whiteboard). Remote participants can see what’s being written on the board simultaneously with local attendees.
Canvas can be installed above any whiteboard up to 2 meters x 1.2 meters or 6 feet x 4 feet. An integrated USB extender makes it easy to install the Canvas camera and connect it to the meeting room device through USB. Canvas is suitable for any size room.
