Most of us traded landline phones for wireless mobile devices years ago. But for businesses thinking about ditching traditional audio-visual displays for next-generation wireless solutions, there are a few considerations to keep in mind.

In this episode of the Software and Technology Podcast, Mike Daskalopoulos, director of strategic platform technology at ScreenBeam, shared some insights on the benefits and challenges of wireless presentation and collaboration solutions.

Bandwidth, while it may seem like it’s infinitely available, is a limited commodity that can present hurdles when integrating a wireless presentation infrastructure. But as Daskalopoulos explained, there are now enhancements that organizations can leverage to make efficient use of spectrum and optimize streaming video.

He went on to describe how collaboration solutions have also evolved dramatically from simple whiteboards to relatively inexpensive touchscreen devices that enable real-time interactions from all over the world. The rise in employees working from home offices and shared co-working spaces is driving the need for wireless solutions that allow for these team members to stay in touch.

“People should meet and work together, and technology […] is the facilitator for that within an organization,” Daskalopoulos said.

He left audiences with a reminder that the user experience should be at the forefront of technology development. “If it’s not simple and easy to use, technology becomes the purpose rather than the vehicle for collaboration and to free yourself from wires,” he said.
