Although the digital age has made it easier to connect across borders without the cost and hassle of travel, the human connection is still critical. Video has saturated every corner of our daily interactions, from social media to personal calls with friends and family. Strong businesses start with strong relationships. And strong relationships are forged on a foundation of strong communication. That’s why Cisco Webex® Meetings puts video at the forefront of communication and collaboration to empower over 130 million people to put their best face forward.

With Cisco® Webex Meetings, we’re making it easier than ever for everyone to be seen, be heard, and work together effectively, even when they are miles apart. Anyone can join a meeting from inside or outside the organization, using mobile, desktop, video room devices (even a third-party device), or their browser. Everyone can enjoy consistent, easy meeting experiences and be fully engaged in the meeting, without technical complexity. Organizations need to implement solutions that remove the complexity of the video meeting experience—with crystal-clear audio and content sharing in the same meeting. For more effective, secure, and reliable meetings, use Cisco Webex.

Personal rooms

Meet even faster in your own permanent, personal room (Figure 3). Schedule ahead or leave your room open, lock it, and easily admit people waiting in your lobby. If you are unavailable to attend your meeting, choose an alternate host to start and run the meeting in your personal room. Save time and join Cisco Webex meetings from your Cisco Webex Teams app, or easily continue your conversations in a Webex Teams space after your meeting ends.

Document, application, and screen sharing

Share an application or your entire screen with remote attendees in real time (Figure 3). Attendees can take control and share content, or annotate yours. On the go, share your content or screen from your browser, Android devices, or iPhone or iPad. With the Webex desktop app, easily share your screen wirelessly via Proximity. Organizations can have a faster-moving, smarter, and more connected workforce by sharing files from the IBM Connections Cloud and Microsoft One Drive.
