We believe that in the future many of us will work on distributed teams, which may leave workers feeling isolated or disconnected from their teammates. To counteract these feelings, we are testing how an always-on video channel changes that.
Interacts with Cisco Spark
Simply add the TeamTV bot to your Spark space and TeamTV creates a unique channel automagically. All members of the Spark space can watch/broadcast. Easy!
Always-on video is interesting, but sometimes you have other stuff to do. Even Zuckerberg tapes up his webcam, so we baked in privacy blur!
Want to talk about a document/url/event with the team? Drop it in your Spark space and TeamTV shares your content as a newsflash to the team's TV channel.
TeamTV works well on your team's personal devices, but simply ask the bot for a big screen link and see the same channel on shared TV screens around your workspace.
About the Beta
TeamTV is a new Cisco Emerge experiment, rather than a Cisco roadmapped product. We're looking for teams with 2+ locations to help us test and iterate. We're interested if we can boost your connectedness in-between your usual meetings and calls.
Running the Beta
What do you need?
Each teammate will need:
TeamTV is also designed for shared big screens in an office workspace. The requirements are the same except you will use an activation code for the big screen.
For this beta experiment, because TeamTV makes use of WebRTC video streaming, TeamTV is not guaranteed to work on mobile devices like iPhones/iPads. Android devices might run TeamTV, but the experience is not designed for small screens (yet).
