The current rise in remote work culture is also largely possible due to improved video conferencing technology. For large organizations, video conferences are a necessity when teams from different locations need to collaborate. These meetings allow for flexibility and are definitely more cost-effective than getting all remote team members in the same room. The only problem is that meetings in general, and virtual meetings in particular, can be very unproductive if not done right.
The average employee attends 62 meetings in a month. Almost 50% of those meetings are considered to be a waste of time, with 31 hours spent in unproductive meetings per month. These meetings costs US businesses USD 37 billion. So how do you hold a video conference that’s actually productive and allows people to collaborate in real time? Here are six ways in which DuoBoard, the right all-in-one display solution, gives you the perfect collaborative experience：
1. Quickly start your meeting
Stop spending the first 15 minutes of every virtual meeting in setting up the screen share, its audio. DuoBoard has all the features you need to instantly set up a video conference. It has a built-in full HD camera and a noise-reducing and echo-cancelling microphone array. It also comes pre-loaded with the Blizz video conferencing app.
2. Multitask with ease
The DuoBoard interactive flat panel is designed to make multitasking a breeze with Duo Windows. Easily have two different applications or input sources displayed side by side on the same screen. You can take notes, annotate on documents, or brainstorm on screen throughout the video call, with just a single DuoBoard interactive flat panel. So now whether you are comparing two documents or presenting information from two different sources, it’s all very simple and user-friendly.
3. Collaborate effectively on the cloud
Not all great ideas can be written down. Some you draw, some you scribble along the margins as you brainstorm. You can now do this in a virtual meeting with EZWrite, DuoBoard’s built-in collaboration tool.
EZWrite’s cloud whiteboard feature simplifies remote collaboration for everyone involved. Whether your employees are working from home, in the office, or on business trips, they can share and exchange ideas with each other seamlessly. EZWrite lets everyone brainstorm and collect, categorize, edit and share ideas using the DuoBoard or their mobile devices.
4. Manage your assets on the cloud
DuoBoard supports multi-account management through NFC technology. Users can easily log in to the DuoBoard and access and manage their personal settings and cloud storage accounts such as Google Drive and Dropbox, by simply scanning an NFC card.
With the BenQ DuoBoard IFP, remote collaboration is simplified for everyone involved with EZWrite cloud whiteboard functionalities. Whether your employees are working from home, in the office or on a business trip, they can share and exchange ideas with each other seamlessly.

5. Go wireless
Get rid of the huge nest of wires hidden in your meeting room. InstaShare is compatible with a wide range of operating systems: Windows, macOS, Chrome OS, Android, and iOS.
The DuoBoard IFP comes with an InstaShare, the screen-mirroring solution that allows you to：
● Wirelessly cast up to 4 screens at a time.
● Have up to users collaborating at the same time through two-way mirroring and touch
6. Have everything on record
The DuoBoard saves users from note-taking. It comes with a video recording feature that captures the entire on-screen session, including audio. All details and annotations are recorded in file that can be referenced at any time or used for training. Sessions can also be exported to a simple PDF or image file that can be quickly shared with all attendees via email or QR code.
