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.

Seven Cool Things about eBeam Edge

1.  It’s Portable–  It can turn any standard whiteboard, or other flat surface, into an interactive space.  Only the eBeam Edge, a projector, computer, and a USB cable are needed (Bluetooth enabled versions are also available) to use it absolutely anywhere.

2.  It’s Small–   The eBeam Edge measures less than 8 inches long, and weighs less than 4 ounces.  The stylus is smaller than a regular whiteboard marker.  It can easily fit into purses and laptop bags, or even in a pocket, if you’re on the run.

3.  It’s Easy to Install–  Installation and calibration take only a few minutes and no special tools are needed.

4.  It’s Easy to Use–  The stylus, when used with the cute but effective palette icon, allows the user to manipulate the device with simple taps of the stylus.  With the palette, the user can control the stylus as the mouse, as well as highlight, draw, and annotate on the capture area.  It is user-friendly for all ages, and also for all levels of technological savvy.

5.  It Promotes Sharing–  The presentations created with the eBeam Edge can be shared directly with a classroom of students or a conference room of employees, and can be shared in real time on local networks or over the Internet.  Then, all of the presented information can be saved for future use, or emailed to the participants for review.

6.  Its WOW Factor–  I use this in my home office, and every time I show it to a guest in my home, it blows them away.  Professionally, eBeam Rocks! has done demonstrations to many different people– ranging from kindergarten teachers, principals, and department heads to CEOs, IT Directors, and national sales trainers– and we always get the same response- “Wow!”  It really is a cool product with a ton of great features that help in teaching, training, brainstorming, planning, and more!

7.  Its Low Price Tag–  This is a great value!  It gives you the functionality of a smart board at a fraction of the cost.  “Interactive” or “smart” boards can cost up to $10,000 and of course, need to be mounted in a permanent location.  eBeam Edge Projection is under $750* and can be moved quickly and easily to suit your needs.

*Note- ebeamrocks.com is actually selling the unit for $553.00 right now as part of our holiday sale.
