Those meetings are for content sharing and they are all about brainstorming, creating ideas, and previewing or editing documents.Therefore, Flipdock has its own Collaboration Platform that powers content sharing, collaboration, and annotations. It offers end users multiple ways to connect devices, share files, and sketch ideas. Users can bring their devices to the meeting room and connect it through the wire or go wireless with wireless screen mirroring. Documents can be shared from Flipdock without having to connect a laptop by using USB flash drive, Cloud drives, or a shared network drive. Lastly, users can sketch ideas on the whiteboard or browse websites and annotate on web pages.
