Why is a SecondScreen important when working remotely?
Working from home, it is difficult for employees and teams to maintain the same sort of social connection and face-to-face contact that exists within a physical office. These visual, face-to-face interactions, which we take for granted in a physical office are conducive to creating a productive environment and building team culture.
Asynchronous, text based communications through email, social media or chat products like Slack can fill some of the void, but it is not a replacement for the human connection that can only exist through seeing someone’s face and hearing their voice.
SecondScreen is a solution for companies and teams to stay connected through a simple hub for video, voice and signage based communications.
SecondScreen allows end-users to enjoy the benefits of an easily accessible and visible workplace communications hub. At the same time, by consolidating these communication channels to an accessory second-screen, SecondScreen can also limit the potential distraction of workplace communications by physically and mentally separating those channels from an employee’s workstation or laptop.
How does the SecondScreen work? What is included?
SecondScreen Tablet is a fully self-contained touchscreen unit that sits at the corner of your desk and automatically connects over WiFi or LTE. Turning a desk into a full-featured conference room is simply a matter of turning it on.
SecondScreen TV allows you to have the same full-featured communications hub experience on any HDMI-enabled TV, whether in a living room or mounted on the wall of your home office. It comes bundled with a webcam and remote for controlling it anywhere in the room.

Is it distracting to have the SecondScreen on my desk?
In the old days, employees used to have a PC or typewriter in the center of their desk with a phone on the side as the communications hub for internal and outbound calls.
