Turning Whiteboard to a Digital Workplace

Views: 245

eBeam Systems employ a revolutionary technology based on infrared and ultrasound to turn any standard whiteboard into a digital workspace. The eBeam receivers are attached to any traditional whiteboard and connect to a PC or Macintosh computer. By inserting standard dry erase markers into electronic sleeves, pen strokes are recognised and data is transferred to the computer. Notes and drawings can be saved, printed, emailed, edited or shared in real-time over the Internet or Intranet with anyone, anywhere.

eBeam is the  award-winning product of Luidia, the global provider of innovative idea-capturing systems for the education, distance learning, conferencing, audio/visual, and office products markets.

With the help of a data projector, the eBeam system can also convert a whiteboard into an interactive computer display using the eBeam pen as a wireless mouse. eBeam converts existing whiteboard into a digital whiteboard at a fraction of the cost of traditional electronic whiteboards or copyboards. Being the smallest Interactive whiteboard solutions on the market today, eBeam systems are extremely portable and set up in minutes.

eBeam Capture software records every pen stroke mark on the board, so one doesn’t lose any of the important ideas. Easily and securely broadcasts whiteboard notes over the Internet in real-time to anyone who couldn’t make it to class. Records voice with lecture to make the lesson available online for absent students or remote teachers.

eBeam Interact software is a simple yet powerful set of tools that breaks the paradigm of clunky software. The customisable, circular tool palette delivers the functionality one needs for the application at hand. Collaborating with students or teachers anywhere in the world and sharing office documents, pictures or screen captures comes easy.

eBeam Interact and Capture software work seamlessly together to ensure all the valuable work on the board is recorded on the computer. Touch the interactive stylus to the board and Interact automatically opens or touch any of the marker sleeves to the board and Capture launches.

eBeam Complete is the combination of a fully featured interactive whiteboard and a next-generation digital copyboard. The eBeam receiver is not only powerful but compact, which makes the entire system portable enough to carry in a laptop case.

eBeam Projection works with the digital projector and any standard whiteboard to create an interactive workspace where one can easily present, collaborate, and build lessons. The system includes a two-button stylus that allows one-touch access to left and right-click functionality as well as showing and hiding the tool palette.

eBeam Integral combines award-winning eBeam Technology with Alfher Porcewol’s porcelain-enameled steel surface to create a dual-purpose Interactive Whiteboard. The surface is low glare which provides a crisp projected image, but has a special coating to resist staining from dry erase markers. It’s also durable enough to resist scratches, dents, punctures, and even graffiti.

eBeam Technology uses infrared light and ultrasound, so it doesn’t require a fragile network of wires like other interactive boards. The integrated, compact receiver is protected against damage and theft by a metal shield. The interactive stylus included with the board provides both left and right-click functionality and one-touch access to special software features. The highly acclaimed
eBeam Interact software provides the necessary tools to help engage the students and deliver dynamic presentations.

The package of eBeam Projection, eBeam Whiteboard and eBeam Complete, allows one to choose whether one wants to turn the existing whiteboard into either a fully-featured interactive whiteboard or an online-capable copyboard.
