One of the show’s judges, Robin Gareiss, president and founder of Nemertes Research, commented, “What intrigues me about Spark Board is that it changes the way people meet, with two key enablers: the price point is affordable ($4,990 MSRP), and the product is intuitive, so there will be a low learning curve. Also, the extensibility to multiple devices brings people into the meeting regardless of location. And, finally, the ability to store and retrieve documents and drawings for the next call keeps efficiency high."

Last month, Cisco Spark picked up additional awards at InfoComm 2017, one of the AV industry’s largest events. AV Technology Magazine awarded Cisco Spark Board with InfoComm Best of Show 2017. Judges remarked that it’s a “great conference room collaborative tool with easy controls and easy wireless content sharing.”
Additionally, the new Cisco Spark Room Kits received Sound & Video Contractor Magazine’s Best of InfoComm award. The room kits integrate with any third-party screen to bring more intelligence and usability to all sizes of conference rooms. Users can add advanced features such as speaker tracking, wireless sharing, and 4K content—previously available only to high-end videoconferencing rooms—to every conference room.
Cisco also received positive feedback at the show from the education community, which is adopting Cisco Spark Board to provide a physical portal into the virtual classroom via the Cisco Spark app. This allows teachers, students and classmates to take part in continuous learning environments—before, during and after class—remotely or in the classroom. Cisco Spark consolidates this functionality into an integrated software and hardware solution, providing multiple capabilities in one easy-to-use interface.
