Who Needs Interactive Solutions

Who Needs Interactive Solutions?

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.

So why do you need an interactive solution?

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.

So you see interactive solutions are a great tool and eBeam is one of the best.  Want to learn more?  Go to www.eBeamRocks.com where you can see all of the eBeam products and other devices to support them.  Check out the videos where you can see how the product works and all of the training tools to help you get up and running quickly.

Interactive Whiteboards Don’t Need to Have IT Set Them Up

Interactive Whiteboards are not losing ground to tablets and phones.  Small devices do not take the place of large surfaces where people can interact to discuss, brainstorm, plan and develop ideas.  Technology simply cannot take the place of the concept of ideas on a board for group activities.

The challenge of many interactive solutions is that IT is required to download, install and set up the software.  Once the software is installed the screens or board must be calibrated.  Once all of this is done then you can begin working on them – well after a potentially long training period.  And this is the downside of these expensive solutions.  The more expensive generally the more costly in time and money is the training.

eBeam solves both of these issues by being a cost effective purchase, easy install (often 20 minutes or less) and a very intuitive interface.  Training can take as little as 20 minutes to get up and running on either of the programs that are provided.

Another big downside is the lack of portability with expensive solutions.  When you purchase an expensive board that can run from $2500 to $5000 the last thing the IT or facility people want to do is have this technology rolled down hallways or put on elevators to move between floors.  Movement means wear and tear and this does not bode well for these boards.

eBeam solves this problem by its inherent portability.  From the small foot print of the eBeam Edge Receiver to the wireless connection that can be made to your computer.  Wires are not an issue and moving from room to room can take as little as a few minutes (with Capture) to 10-15 minutes if a projector is being used (with Scrapbook).

Your investment is small – as little as $649.00 for the USB version to $999.00 for the eBeam Edge Wireless with Capture Pack version.  Add a Battery Pack and you have a complete system for just under $1100.  This is a small investment that can be picked up and moved from room to room, taken on the road and set up in minutes.

So consider eBeam for your interactive solution.  We Make Any Surface Smart.

eBeam Edge and a Mitsubishi Electric Projector- A Great Combination!

So, I don’t know if anyone will be in the Las Vegas area in the next few days, but Luidia is showcasing their eBeam Edge at the Mitsubishi Electric Booth at this year’s InfoComm Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 13-15, 2012.  Take a look!

Mitsubishi Electric Stands Apart With Industry Partner Synergy and Depth of Display Offerings

IRVINE, CA–(Marketwire – Jun 13, 2012) – In an increasingly commoditized marketplace, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. sets itself apart in many ways: the wide range of product offerings, overall product excellence and reliability, and synergistic partnerships with industry leaders to bring the best solutions and services to its customers.

Mitsubishi Electric is the only manufacturer that makes a full line of displays, including LED display boards, projectors, LCD flat panel monitors, data walls and televisions designed for a wide range of industries and applications.

At this year’s InfoComm Expo, the audio/visual display industry’s biggest show, Mitsubishi Electric will share the spotlight with Cybertouch, DisplayNote, IAdea, Luidia, Qwizdom®, ThinkLogical™, and Anacore in Booth #C8308 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 13-15, 2012.

CyberTouch brings its touch-screen expertise to bear on three displays in the booth, including the Photon, a multi-touch frame that converts any Mitsubishi Electric video wall to an interactive multi-user experience. CyberTouch’s Rio line of multi-touch monitors recognizes up to 32 simultaneous touch inputs and is a turn-key solution for Mitsubishi Electric dealers who want to integrate this technology. CyberTouch offers gesturing, squeezing and pinching functionalities to make interactive resources easier for untrained or casual multiple users.

DisplayNote’s software allows users to connect to Mitsubishi Electric projectors or monitors and control display content using a tablet or smart phone. Users can view, annotate, save and collaborate with other users using DisplayNote.

IAdea will be exhibiting its media players with digital signage content shown via a user-friendly interface; users can easily connect the media players to a network and effectively (and intuitively) display digital signage. Using the latest HTML5 dynamic content open standard, IAdea media players can display RSS feeds, live web and even news and weather feeds. These media players are also widely supported by many major digital signage software brands.

Luidia returns to the Mitsubishi Electric booth to showcase its interactive eBeam Edge™ platform that creates, saves and shares meeting notes, dynamic lessons, diagrams and more. Weighing less than four ounces, the eBeam Edge works with a Mitsubishi Electric projector to transform walls, traditional whiteboards and flat surfaces into interactive workspaces. This eliminates the need to replace these surfaces with new and costly dedicated interactive ones. They can also work with large-screen, flat panel monitors or display walls.

Quizdom’s WizTeach™ is annotation software that works in single and dual pen mode with Mitsubishi Electric’s projectors for greater collaboration and interactivity. It has more than 70 subject-specific tools for drawing, math, literacy, voting, science and geography. WizTeach annotations save directly into Word, Power Point and Excel, and work with a browser and almost any software application. These tools are designed to improve teaching and learning outcomes.

Thinklogical is one of the world’s foremost developers and manufacturers of high-performance fiber optic video, audio, KVM (keyboard, visual display and mouse) and peripheral extension and routing solutions. The company will show its Velocity Extender product — the VelSys3 Fiber Optic Input Card — built specifically for Mitsubishi Electric video walls. The VelSys3 plugs directly into any Mitsubishi Electric Seventy Series DLP® cube’s optic engine or Seventy Series: Flat monitors as an optional input board for a quick fiber optic connection.

Adding to the excitement in the booth is content provided by Anacore, a leading custom software development company specializing in collaboration and digital signage systems. Visitors will experience powerful and dynamic interactive tools that streamline collaborative discussions, reminiscent of the high-tech wonders found only in futuristic movies.

Mitsubishi Electric works with companies that have a solid reputation in their respective areas of expertise, be it touch screens, interactivity, or thin client communications. Mitsubishi Electric also provides a support network to resolve issues that may arise with one call, to one company.

“Unlike other manufacturers, if you have a problem with a Mitsubishi Electric product, you call us first,” said James Chan, vice president of marketing, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “Even if the issue lies with one of our software or third-party providers, we’ll coordinate the service call so our customers have one point of contact.”

“Our core competence is our expertise in display technology that goes back decades,” added Chan. “From huge Diamond Vision™ displays in stadiums and on Time Square to our big-screen TVs, Mitsubishi Electric makes display devices that are specifically designed to improve the viewer’s visual experience.”
