What is xpZoom?xpZoom (pronounced 'puh-zoom') is a visual support tool for online- or telephone meetings and discussions. Focussed on design-team or/and designer-to-client needs, xpZoom combines a shared whiteboard with pre-distributed images to be discussed. xpZoom is designed to be used alongside another (non-visual) communication tool/system, so it does not include voice- or chat-functionality.
Why xpZoom?Improve communication between designers in (multi-site) design-teams as well as between designers and clients.

How does xpZoom work?Prior to the planned meeting, a 'visual agenda' is distributed among the attendees of the meeting. This 'visual agenda' contains the graphic material that will be discussed in the form of a large collage.
During the meeting, attendees can zoom into the large collage to discuss specific areas. Zoom-actions, as well as scribbles on the zoomed in area are distributed in realtime to all attendees.
After the session has ended, or when a user leaves the meeting, all zoomed-in states and scribbles can be saved out as 'visual minutes'.
