At Digital Samba, we're always working to enhance your integrated video conferencing experiences, making them not only productive but also engaging and immersive.

We're excited to introduce our new "Whiteboard" feature, designed to boost the interactive and collaborative aspects of virtual meetings, webinars, and events, making them more effective.


Using whiteboard for better engagement

What sets Digital Samba's whiteboard feature apart is its multi-user functionality, with no need for third-party integrations. Being a core part of our existing system, it can be easily activated with just a simple flick of a switch. It comes with a user-friendly interface that is intuitive and easy to navigate.

Incorporating the Digital Samba whiteboard into your app can significantly improve user engagement and effectiveness across various industries. For e-learning platforms, it turns passive content consumption into an engaging learning experience.

In telehealth applications, it helps in visually explaining medical procedures and advice, improving patient understanding.
