"Write" Directly on WhiteBoard Screen
The SoftBoard System 400 is suited for collaborative multisite meetings, presentations and conferences. The system interfaces with IBM compatible or Macintosh computers, which users control directly on the large 58.8-inch rear projection screen with an electronic pen. Using the pen one can write and draw in "electronic ink," highlighting specific information, and also control the software with full mouse functionality. The SoftBoard System 400 includes Intel ProShare Premier 2.0 videoconferencing software and an adjustable swingarm keyboard and mouse tray. A multimedia set consisting of video input cables (for NTSC, PAL and SECAM); an S-VHS connector; internal hi-fi stereo speakers; audio patch panel; and all audio cables is also included.
