There has been a significant evolution in huddle room collaboration and meeting spaces over the last few years. Today, companies are striving to create a productive environment for employees to come together for interactive conferences and discussions. Additionally, organizations are witnessing a rise in remote workers and, as such, collaborating with remote participants across the globe with innovative technological equipment has become a necessity.
Interestingly, the Avaya IX CU360 promises to revolutionize traditional huddle room set-ups. It does that by delivering smart collaboration for teams with simultaneous support for popular workplace productivity applications. Advanced features such as full HD 1080p video, a 4K camera sensor, 4K display and Android OS offer a rich user experience. The CU360, with its dual HD live and video content, connectivity to any standards-based video system and integration with Avaya’s UC solutions, delivers enterprise-class features for businesses of any size. Creating a new benchmark of intelligent communication experiences for customers and employees, the CU360 is an ideal solution to turn any meeting room or huddle space into a cloud-enabled collaboration room.
