    Just wondering if the Lync whiteboard will work with some of the touch-screen LCD’s out there? I’m thinking of purchasing a Dell 22″ touch-screen and deploying that to a could of our offices. I want a “truly” interactive whiteboard experience without the use of the mouse/keyboard.

    Yes it can – this can be done with your finger or with a stylist. I know the Lync Room Systems will also do this. You are speaking about Lync 2013 and not the Lync App correct?
