Whiteboard is available as a plugin for Intel Unite. The Intel Unite® solution lets you easily create and manage a secure content sharing and collaboration platform for your organization. Wirelessly connect displays, employees, and mixed technology environments so your team can share and collaborate seamlessly, wherever they are. [1]

Intel Unite® is embedded into selected ViewBoard® slot-in PCs (VPC12-WPO-2 and VPC14-WP-3), making all ViewBoard® models compatible with the Intel Unite® platform. With Intel Unite®, users can manage a room’s UC applications from a single point of access. Collaboration is made easy by allowing users to connect and interact with meeting content in real time, from any location that has a corporate network connection. [2]
