10 Controllers Can Draw on Presentations

B'eckeler Instruments is releasing Pointmaker COMM, an option that expands by four or eight the number of controllers or drawing devices that are connected to a single Pointmaker PVI-80 multiple-sync video marker with keyboard. In effect, the COMM option allows up to 10 viewers to electronically draw and point on video or computer images displayed during a presentation. This extends the use of the video marker to multimedia presentations that require drawing and pointing from several areas in a room. Use a light pen, remote control or tablet to do the eletronic annotation. The Pointmaker PVI-80 comes standard with two COMM ports; the COMM-4 option adds four additional ports for a total of six, the COMM-8 option allows up to ten controllers.
