Webex Board 85S

The Webex® Board is an all-in-one device that provides everything you need to collaborate with your teams in physical meeting rooms. You can wirelessly present, whiteboard, and have video and audio calls. And it securely connects to your virtual teams through the Webex service or via your Webex App-enabled devices, so you can take your meetings and content on the road.

The Webex Board 85S*, featuring an 85-inch LED screen, is designed for your largest collaboration spaces such as auditoriums, training spaces, and classrooms, where co-creation is the primary focus. The Webex Board portfolio is also available in 55- and 70-inch options to cover all of your collaboration needs from huddle space to the boardroom.

Webex Board product overview

Webex Board revolutionizes the way we work by combining key requirements for team collaboration in the physical meeting room into a single device and connecting it to the cloud for continuous workflow. It’s a wireless presentation screen, a digital whiteboard, and an audio and video conferencing system, all in one product. The Webex Board helps teams collaborate in physical meeting rooms, but also securely connects to virtual meeting spaces to facilitate continuous workflow before, during, and after everyone has left the physical conference room. The Webex Board draws its power from the Webex service, which combines meeting, messaging, calling, and whiteboarding capabilities on any Webex App-enabled device. Registration to the Webex cloud lets you store everything created on the Webex Board directly in the cloud and associate it to a virtual Webex App space, so you can take your work wherever you go. The Webex Board offers an integrated, secure, and comprehensive lifecycle approach to teamwork that is as yet unimagined, and thus superior, to any other solution on the market.

Webex Board 85 – for your largest collaboration spaces

The Webex Board 85 is a fully self-contained system on a high-resolution 4K 85-inch LED screen. With an integrated 4K camera, embedded microphones, and a capacitive touch interface, the board brings intelligence, style, and usability to meeting rooms, from small to large. Designed with minimal wires for simplicity and elegance, Cisco’s latest collaboration device allows wireless sharing and Wi-Fi connectivity. The system is also touch-based for easy and rich team collaboration.

Not only is the Webex Board beautiful to behold and effortless to use, it is also affordable to acquire and easy to install and deploy, so that it can be a fixture in your larges conference and training rooms. The Webex Board 85 also has a unique wheel-based packaging and transport frame that makes it easy to move and assemble. With wheels on three corners of the aluminum frame, the 220-pound Webex Board 85 can easily fit into standard elevators and doorways.

Digital signage

  A powerful web engine provides the ability to connect to a web-based backend, to automatically display information when the Webex Board is not in use
  Content displayed in signage mode can be either static or interactive, giving users the option to interact with the content displayed

Industrial design

  Discreet built-in 4K camera is unintimidating and helps users feel comfortable when close to the screen
  Built-in microphones and wireless sharing add to the clean, no-wire aesthetics
  Fixed-lens camera uses an 83-degree-wide field of view to capture virtually the entire room
  High-resolution 4K screen shows detailed content beautifully


  Easy-to-understand activity circles correspond to the basic activities and workflows that users need to get their work done
  Intuitive navigation, such as a home button and touchscreen, is a staple of mobile devices and familiar to users
  Consistent user interface and workflow across the Webex Board and Webex App reduce the user’s learning curve
  Familiar capacitive touch capability is the same as on smartphones and tablets, and allows for two-point multi-touch, which lets two people work on the board at the same time
  Simplified meeting-join experience with One Button To Push (OBTP) enables fast meeting start and consistency with rest of Webex video devices
  Support for hybrid phone book lets Webex Board search for both cloud- or premises-registered video devices for easy dialing, and allows premises-registered endpoints to search for Webex Boards
  Add Cisco Touch 10 or Webex Room Navigator to allow even more flexibility in controlling the Webex Board

Continuous workflow

  Cloud registration lets everything created on the Webex Board be stored directly and securely in the cloud and associated to a virtual Webex App space
  Team members can pick up wherever they left off on the Webex Board when they leave the physical room; work can continue from a different location, time zone, or device, such as another Webex Board or any other Webex App on smartphones, tablets, and laptops
  Webex Board and the Webex service together provide end-to-end encryption, so your communications and content are secure

Intelligent views

  Automatically modulates the active speaker so that clear audio is delivered to the far end, whether the speaker is close to or far away from the Webex Board
  No microphone wires to detract from the aesthetics of the Webex Board
  Powerful microphones cover a room with 8 to 10 people

Intelligent proximity

Webex Proximity and ultrasound pairing technology enable the following:

  Webex Board automatically wakes up when it detects a Webex App user enter the room and suggests an activity to choose from
  Wireless sharing of documents from a laptop is enabled both within and outside of a conference call; connect seamlessly to personal and mobile devices using ultrasound (no need for dongles, adapters, typing in PINs, etc.)
  Control of the Webex Board can be done through the Webex App device (make and disconnect calls, etc.)

On-premises deployment

  Webex Board is optimized for cloud deployments but can also register to on-premises infrastructure (Cisco UCM, Expressway , or third-party SIP/H.323 call control). In an on-premises deployment, the Webex Board is limited to support audio and video conferencing, content sharing (wireless or HDMI), and local whiteboarding out of call

Cognitive collaboration

  Includes AI-powered features that provide a frictionless meeting experience and contextual insights
  Webex Assistant is a voice-controlled assistant that lets you start or join your meeting, book a room, or make a call
  Facial recognition identifies meeting participants and provides name labels
  Automatic noise detection and suppression ensures the meeting is free of distracting background noise

Webex Board prominent features and differentiators

The Power of the Webex Platform enables continuous teamwork

The Webex Board is revolutionary in its capability, usability, and design, and the ability to connect teams beyond the physical meeting room is a result of the power of the Webex platform. The consistency, simplicity, and reliability of experience across the Webex Board and other Webex App-enabled devices is made possible by these key features of the Webex platform:

     Cloud-based - The Webex Board is registered and delivered simply and securely with end-to-end encryption through Webex in the cloud and offered on a subscription basis, so you can add or update services automatically or on demand.

     App-based - Once they are shared or created on the Webex Board and associated with a Webex App virtual space, content and messages live persistently and can be accessed from any mobile device—laptop, smartphone, tablet—on the Webex App from wherever you are. This means work and knowledge can be transferred seamlessly from one team member to the next, from one time zone to another.

     Activity-based - The capabilities you enjoy on the Webex Board—meeting, calling, messaging, and white boarding—are the same capabilities you will experience on any other Webex App-enabled personal device. You can start your work on the Webex Board and continue on your personal and mobile devices, or vice versa.
