Verizon Business introduced the redesigned BlueJeans platform for the hybrid workplace. Centered around BlueJeans Spaces, this collaboration platform was developed to provide a virtual environment for teams working in multiple places. With the introduction of Spaces, BlueJeans offers the ability to collaborate virtually in today’s hybrid work environment.
Spaces provides users with a catalog of customizable office layouts to replicate the physical sensation of being in a shared workspace. Colorful presence indicators reveal who in the space is open to chat, who is talking and who does not want to be disturbed. Spatial audio offers a true sense of proximity, which means those sitting closer together in the virtual space will hear each other more clearly than someone who is across the room from them. BlueJeans Spaces users can personalize and switch between communication styles to collaborate. Communication modes include messaging, audio to video chat, overhead-focused 2D and headset-free 3D.
Here’s a video explaining it:
The new BlueJeans Collaboration Board allows users to pick up right where they left off on any device — desktop, mobile, web or integrated room systems. Used separately or from within Spaces, opening up a new Collaboration Board allows teams to capture ideas, manage and save their work. The addition of a live cursor to acknowledge real-time collaborators enables users to have access to drawing tools and add images, sticky notes or screenshots.
New features include:
- 1,000-Person Meetings: customers now have the ability to host up to 1,000 fully active participants in a collaborative meeting
- Audio Lock: meeting hosts can hard mute all participants to limit potential disruptions
- Open Breakout Sessions: Attendees in large groups will be able to use BlueJeans’ new Open Breakouts feature
