Who needs interactive solutions? Let’s first review what an interactive solution is.
In our daily lives we have meetings, training sessions, presentations, you may be a teacher, coach, administrator, just about everyone interacts with people during the day. And during these interactions most of the time ideas are shared, information flows and notes are taken.
It is during the times of note taking and information flow where Interactive Solutions are needed. Too often these sessions are one dimensional. A flip chart being used, a whiteboard or whiteboard painted wall, a PowerPoint presentation be displayed or just your desktop is being displayed. This allows for a presenter and a viewer, but it isn’t interactive.
To be interactive more than one person needs to be able to interact with the information. This can be done through a file sharing application, web meeting or similar application. Too often these cost money to set up and maintain, have to be scheduled in advance and as we’ve all see are easy to crash or fail and usually at the worst time possible.
The interactive solutions provide an easy way to capture and share information. You spend less time copying and transcribing notes, ideas and sketches and more time implementing the ideas and plans. Productivity goes up, mistakes and problems go down.
eBeam offers all of this interactivity inside two different applications. eBeam Edge is a simple, elegant and cost effective way to set up an interactive space. Whether you are using a projector, tv or monitor, whiteboard, whiteboard painted wall, glass wall or even a table to with an ultra short-throw projector.
eBeam Edge allows you to convert virtually any hard surface to an interactive surface.
eBeam Edge attaches quickly to any metal backed whiteboard or presentation board. It also comes with brackets that are held in place with 3M Command Strips to you eliminate damage to any walls when removing the tape. With a special bracket the Edge device can be attached to almost any large screen TV or monitor.
Load the programs (usually in 20 minutes or less) and you have now created a touch screen surface anywhere you can project or show your desktop. The image can be as large as 60”h x 108”w large enough to make any small detail stand out.
Now that you are set up, if you showing your desktop you have created a touch screen surface. Interact and run any program that you have loaded on your computer. From Word to Excel to AutoCAD to PowerPoint anything can be operated from the image.
When you run the Scrapbook program you have the ultimate electronic whiteboard application. With unlimited screens and the ability to import, export, take screen shots, record video and audio you have a program that will make all of your sessions more productive. Once the event is finished you can edit, save and distribute the information in up to 9 different formats.
Imagine conducting a client presentation or review and then forwarding them a video of the entire event including sound so they have it before they get back to their office. How cool would that be. Or conduct on on-line meeting walking through all of the issues and recording it at the same time and sending a link to file within minutes of completing the presentation. Do you hear the same cash register sounds I do?
So what if you aren’t using your desktop, but instead have a plain old whiteboard or the newest tool a whiteboard painted wall? No problem. With the Capture program you quickly and easily turn this space into an electronic copyboard. EVERYTHING that you write on the board or wall is instantly sent to your computer.
Once on the computer you have the ability to edit, add to, save and distribute the information in a similar way to the Scrapbook program. You can even conduct on-line meetings where you share the content of your whiteboard and record all of your events showing the details of the whiteboard and voice as it is picked up by the computer.
