Whiteboarding in Blue Jeans Video calls

We have experimenting with using a "boogie board" for the whiteboard experience : http://www.amazon.com/Boogie-Board-9-7-Inch-eWriter-ST1020001/dp/B00E8CIGCA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&q...

it works quite well, i am still in the testing phase for making sure it works in mac, linux and windows.

It was used yesterday in a meeting i was in to help explain the type of charts and reports were required to show how great the Blue Jeans adoption has been :D

Basically its a screen share of the whiteboard app that the boogie board is connected to.

I would ideally like to join a meeting from a tablet ( ios/android) mute the speakers/mic and use the tablet as a white board ( i know some people have been joining and pointint the tablet at an actual white board!)

@Ash - Can you confirm this whiteboarding worked in your Blue Jeans meeting?

I was just thinking, after going through some of the ideas (for features/improvements) that Ash has been planting around here.

Is there any way the product dev. guys could put up their list of priorities, so we could vote on them. It's so much the problem that we all probably share a need for the same things, but have a different priority list. At least it would save the dev. guys from being "meat in the sandwich(es" :)

Thanks for sharing this Ash!

We gave Syncpad (https://syncpadapp.com/) a try and really liked the whiteboarding functionality. But the user management was a bit confusing. I could see this working really well on smaller teams.

I am curious to know if anyone has used Polycom's proprietary whiteboard system -- and then what, if any options we'd have for remote staff who are connecting from a mobile device or browser to send whiteboard content.
