Over the last few months, Microsoft Teams has seen tremendous growth, with more than 75 million daily users. It is quickly becoming the de facto tool for online collaboration within and across organizations.
At Blueye, we see an increasing interest in remote inspections, with a need to safely and efficiently share live underwater footage with remote experts and stakeholders. Our decision to operate our drones from standard iOS or Android devices is rooted in a strategy and vision where the Blueye App is part of a broader mobile ecosystem.
Using the screen sharing functionality in the Microsoft Teams app, Blueye customers can share live drone footage directly in a Teams meeting. Participants can communicate with the operator, and among each other, making the inspection a collaborative effort, leading to better and faster decisions.
Using the screen sharing functionality in the Microsoft Teams app, Blueye customers can share live drone footage directly in a Teams meeting.
You can record the meeting for later reference and documentation. Microsoft Teams will store the recording in Microsoft Stream, another software service in the Microsoft 365 product family. Images and data from the drone can be uploaded to the meeting notes, collecting all information in one convenient and secure location.
Sharing drone footage in Microsoft Teams is just one example of the benefits of using the iOS or Android platform. Going forward, we will be showing more examples of how the Blueye App can be part of a complete digital workflow.
One year ago, we released the Blueye Dive Buddy app, allowing multiple spectators to connect to the same drone onsite.
Today, you can take this one step further and start using Microsoft Teams for remote collaboration.
If you are an existing Blueye customer, you can already start using Microsoft Teams with the drone today. Learn how to get started with remote inspections using Microsoft Teams in the Blueye Help Center.
Based on feedback, and observations from customers and partners, the Blueye team is hard at work on several new features that will help organizations take full advantage of digital workflows in their underwater inspections.
