Luidia eBeam System Advantages -IWB - Interactive Whiteboard

  1. 1. eBeam System Advantages Summer 2008
  2. 2. Retrofittable eBeam can be integrated seamlessly into your existing setup.
  3. 3. Find the eBeam Receiver... Unobtrusive Since eBeam works on your existing whiteboard, you can choose when you want an interactive whiteboard and when you want a standard whiteboard.
  4. 4. Without Projector With Projector Multi-purpose Works with or without a projector in the classroom or in the conference room.
  5. 5. Intuitive eBeam software uses many familiar features from the most popular software applications. (PowerPoint, Illustrator, PhotoShop)
  6. 6. Since eBeam is scalable, a 47” board costs the same as a 100” board. Scalability A single eBeam supports one of the largest projection areas in the Interactive Whiteboard Market. eBeam can be used on nearly any smooth, flat surface including walls.
  7. 7. Although an eBeam receiver weighs 4.6 ounces Many other interactive whiteboard products claim and has a wing-span of 7.5 inches, it activates a to be ―portable‖ when the wheels often need to be board up to 100 inches in diameter. removed to clear the classroom door frame! Portability – eBeam vs. Traditional Fixed-Sized eBeam will work on a whiteboard or a wall — any flat surface that gives enough resistance to activate the stylus.
  8. 8. A 100” eBeam Projection System can be A 77” Front Projection Whiteboard can be shipped by UPS Ground for $16.53*. shipped by freight for $280.39*. Cost-effective Shipping Most fixed-sized whiteboards exceed the capacity of UPS, Fed Ex, USPS, etc. and must be shipped by freight. *Source:
  9. 9. Durability eBeam technology does not require the somewhat fragile surface found in other interactive whiteboard products. A puncture to a large, resistive touch surface generally requires a complete board replacement.
  10. 10. Flexibility eBeam activates an area of up to 8 feet by 4 feet or 100‖ diagonal.
  11. 11. The receiver can be attached to any You don‘t have to rearrange your corner of the whiteboard classroom or conference room to fit in an eBeam! eBeam fits seamlessly into almost any existing environment. Flexible enough to capture cubicle- sized whiteboards to large conference room whiteboards. Flexibility The small footprint of the receiver ensures that you will never lose the daily functionality of your regular dry-erase whiteboard.
  12. 12. Environmentally Friendly With an eBeam System, you can reuse the whiteboard you already have instead of replacing it with a fixed-sized interactive whiteboard.
  13. 13. Environmentally Friendly You can also repurpose a flat wall into an interactive whiteboard with an eBeam and a projector if you don‘t have an existing board.
  14. 14. e-mail Environmentally Friendly Reduce paper and toner usage by digitally distributing whiteboard notes.
  15. 15. Environmentally Friendly Reduce your carbon footprint by hosting eBeam meetings – people will be able to see your whiteboard content anywhere in the world without having to travel.
  16. 16. Environmentally Friendly Recycle the eBeam packaging (which is small enough to fit in a standard recycling bin – no lugging huge boxes to the bin outside!)
  17. 17. Environmentally Friendly RoHS compliant – eBeam Hardware does not contain any hazardous materials and is completely lead-free.
  18. 18. Interactive Stylus provides a Better Human Interface
  19. 19. According to The Pen Technologies team at the IBM Thomas J Watson Research Center, Pen Computing is drawing attention from researchers because there are a number of applications where a pen is the most convenient form of input. These include: Preparing a first draft of a document and concentrating on content creation. Capturing information in meetings, that is quieter than typing and creates minimal visual barrier as a socially acceptable form notetaking Entering letters in ideographic languages like Chinese and Japanese; where the size of the character set makes keyboard-style input cumbersome or infeasible Entering non-letter entries like graphics, music notation, and gestures. Interaction with multi-modal systems. Pen Computing Both IBM and Microsoft have invested a lot of time and resources into the study and development of ―Pen Computing.‖
  20. 20. Bill Buxton, of Microsoft Research, goes further by comparing the use of a stylus to using one’s finger: For example, if the finger were the ultimate device, why didn‘t Picasso and Rembrandt restrict themselves to finger painting? On the other hand, if you want to sense the temperature of water, your finger is a better tool than your pencil. There is a reason we don‘t rely on finger painting: Even on large surfaces, writing or drawing with the finger is generally not as effective as it is with a brush or stylus. On small format devices it is virtually useless to try and take notes or make drawings using a finger rather than a stylus. If one supports good digital ink and an appropriate stylus and design, one can take notes about as fluently as one can with paper. Note taking/scribble functions are notably absent from virtually all finger-only touch devices. Pen Computing In 2007, the Microsoft Center for Research on Pen-Centric Computing of Brown University and Microsoft Research held a conference to discuss Pen Computing. Pen-centric computing, as defined by the conference, takes advantage of human skill with the pen, particularly the ability to express smooth, detailed paths quickly.
