Recently we signed a new client that was looking for a way to improve their trade show demonstrations. The company Origo Education has a suite of educational programs that are centered around math instruction. During their trade shows they have a large TV/Monitor connected to their MAC laptop and they walk teachers through the product.
In previous shows they would rent a touchscreen monitor (at a considerable cost) in their booth. Their challenge was the cost and logistics. Either renting or shipping this VERY EXPENSIVE monitor created a problem in getting it from one location to another along with the potential damage and repair or replacement.
By using eBeam Edge and the LCD Mounting Bracket they are now able to convert any TV or Monitor into a “touch screen” unit by using the wireless pen/stylus. The eBeam Edge can be packed neatly in the available carrying case and taken from show to show. They now only need to have a standard TV/Monitor during the show which allows them to save considerable money over the previous set up.
Another idea would be to provide the TV used during the show as a giveaway. With the availability of very low cost large screen units they could potentially save on shipping and handling costs by purchasing a one at each show location. And what a great giveaway to the show participants.
So, if you are active in trade shows and utilize a TV or large monitor, consider eBeam Edge as a tool to use for showing your program or tools.
eBeam Edge converts TVs, Monitors, Whiteboards, Drywall, Glass Walls, table tops into an interactive environment. Virtually any hard and flat surface that you can project or show your desk top onto can be converted to an interactive space.
Now use your regular paper and capture all of your notes, drawings, doodles, world domination strategies directly to your:
With a simple Bluetooth interface what you put on the paper shows up immediately on your device. The device software is free on the iTunes Store and the Windows software is available from a link on our product page.
Once you have the captured notes and drawings then you can
No longer do you have to only take images of your notes. No longer do you have to keep your ideas locked away on your paper. Use any paper you want (up to 9.5" x 13").
This is some seriously cool hardware that will change the way your write and talk.
Yes this is self promoting but you were expecting that right? eBeam takes advantage of your existing assets (whiteboard, projector, computer) and allows you to bring interactivity to the class at a reasonable cost. By adding the eBeam receiver to your whiteboard or wall you also don’t have to give up valuable whiteboard space to a static piece of equipment (i.e. Smartboard).
This is perfect for pulling students and teachers together to share, everything. Based in the cloud Connect allows you to post and share documents, assign documents to groups where they can work on them together using their own device (See BYOD). Currently this service is free while it’s in Beta phase. It will move to a subscription based model which will then be available on an annual basis.
An Unlimited Number of Whiteboard Screens
The trouble with whiteboards is they are one dimensional. One surface, very flat and limited to their edges. Once you write your stuff on them it’s locked in, can’t move, can’t be easily transported and shared.
Have you ever taken a picture of your whiteboard? How difficult was it to see everything on it? How many close ups did you need to take to get everything? How hard was it to read?
Introducing – eBeam Scrapbook and Capture
Scrapbook and Capture are the programs that come with the eBeam products, eBeam Edge, eBeam Engage and eBeam Livewire.
Scrapbook works with a projected surface either with your projector or on a large TV, monitor or Big Screen. It allows you to develop an unlimited number of whiteboard screens directly on your computer. Draw, design, text, add pictures, insert graphs, web pages – it is truly a full service whiteboarding tool. And when you are finished (of course you are never finished) you can save the file, send it as 9 different formats or share it with your group.
Capture works directly on your whiteboard without a projector or monitor. EVERYTHING you write and draw is transferred immediately to your computer where you can save it. After your finished on the whiteboard the software allows you to edit, add to, change and then save your work in up to 9 different formats.
Oh, and both of the programs allow you record your sessions in real time and you can conduct online meetings where you share the contents of each program with the participants.
So, check out Scrapbook and Capture and see how you can take your meetings to the next level.

I ran across this article on how IdeaPaint got started. Another great college student(s) solve a problem and make a boat load of money at it.
But why to I bring this up? Simple, if you were to add the eBeam product to this wall, all of that great artwork, plans, world domination schemes, details, flow charts, etc. etc. would be captured onto the computer.
Once there you can manipulate, change, delete, add, save and distribute the information. You can even add pages to it after you're done so that the whiteboard work you are doing now becomes more of a dynamic growing document - how cool is that.
eBeam helps take a great idea and make it even better.
Today I thought I would give you a real life note from one of our teachers that is using the Engage product.
This was the first installation in this school. I was a little concerned about it because we installed it in their kindergarten classes - but after seeing this note I am convinced that even pre-schoolers could get a huge benefit from this.
