The landscape of meetings and collaborative work has experienced a significant transformation since the onset of the pandemic. Driven initially by mandated lockdowns, virtual meetings have evolved into meaningful and productive hybrid events that are demonstrating a remarkable level of effectiveness. This new paradigm of symmetric collaboration unhindered by geographical separation has allowed organizations to efficiently assemble operative teams without the expense and time associated with travel.

This dramatic shift is particularly evident in the public sector, where organizations strive to maintain collaborative environments with both employees and the communities they serve. Interactive displays have emerged as a powerful and flexible tool that synergizes the hybrid meeting environment and enables effective communication and experiential teamwork.

The immense value of interactive displays

Interactive displays — sometimes referred to as interactive whiteboards — allow participants to easily share on-screen content, thus making it possible for remote workers to fully engage because they’re using the same platform as those who are in the actual meeting room. Samsung Interactive Displays provide an engaging and immersive experience for meeting participants, facilitating productive collaboration.

With large touch-enabled screens, products like the Samsung Interactive Pro display allow participants to interact with content in real time, creating an inclusive environment where ideas can be shared and refined. The Interactive Pro is available in 85-inch, 75-inch, 65-inch and 55-inch sizes and permits multiple users to draw, annotate and edit content directly on the screen. This can help improve brainstorming sessions and encourage active participation from all attendees. The touch experience is enhanced with minimal latency (26ms) and 2,048 points of pressure built directly into the display. The Interactive Pro series enables up to 20 simultaneous touchpoints for enhanced collaboration.

These high-resolution displays ensure that every detail is crystal clear, enabling visual presentations to be delivered with maximum impact and helping people stay engaged in dynamic discussions and training sessions.

Enhance employee engagement

Unlike online webinars, which are passive events, or conventional PC-to-PC video meetings, interactive displays effectively amplify employee engagement. When used for participative training programs, displays can blend tactile learning with the limitless potential of a large interactive digital stage. Polling, posting ideas for live feedback and even sketching out a new design or flowchart are easily accomplished. With the Samsung Interactive Pro display, ideas can be instantly brought to life using the pen and brush mode, providing a real-world writing experience. Flexible erasing requires just a swipe of the finger or palm. The quick tool and palette menu ensure creativity flows and a toggle button easily enables a new note layer user interface.

Simple, seamless videoconferencing is supported on Interactive Pro devices based on the WebRTC (real-time communication) API, without the need for additional solution compatibility. Organizations can also choose to set up a separate large monitor for a videoconferencing gallery of those attending remotely and use the large interactive display for a hybridized experiential workshop.

Provide an intuitive user experience with Microsoft Teams

Samsung Interactive Displays are particularly well suited for public sector agencies because they seamlessly integrate with Microsoft Teams, the preferred platform for government workers. Public sector agencies have embraced Teams as their go-to meeting platform for several reasons. Teams is governed by the Microsoft ecosystem, ensuring robust data protection and providing an intuitive user experience that minimizes the need for extensive training. Teams seamlessly integrates with other Microsoft products, enabling agencies to collaborate on various documents, spreadsheets and presentations both internally and with external stakeholders. The platform is specifically designed for remote work, assuring connection and collaboration capabilities for users regardless of location. Finally, the integration of Teams into the Office 365 platform provides a comprehensive suite of cloud-based tools to manage documents or graphics for effective collaboration.

Strengthen increased security

Security is always a key consideration at government agencies and must be factored into the planning for virtual meetings or training sessions. In addition to the security features built into Teams, presenters using Samsung Interactive Display can limit content access by choosing a password and access is closed when the facilitator or presenter logs off. To comply with government security requirements, Samsung has secure settings that can be managed remotely based on what an organization needs. With Miracast for PCs and DeX for Samsung phones and tablets, direct Wi-Fi and bidirectional connectivity allow organizations to maintain wireless casting capabilities without an active internet connection.

Transform collaborative work and drive efficiency in the public sector

As the public sector continues to embrace remote and hybrid work models, the combination of Microsoft Teams and Samsung Interactive Displays serves as a powerful toolset to enable a level of secure and effective collaboration that transcends conventional boundaries, ultimately driving efficiency and innovation.
