The way people use whiteboards might be set to change with the release of a collaborative solution claiming to improve the way local and remote teams work. Kaptivo's Adrian Cable tells Zoe Mutter how the product captures, enhances and shares content.

Video conferencing systems are great for sharing audio and video content, but a lot of productivity occurs on traditional whiteboards which cannot be effectively shared with remote participants.

Whether the product is being used in a classroom, huddle room or office, the Kaptivo team is hoping to help turn the whiteboard into a powerful collaboration tool.
