Wireless Products: eBeam System 3 BT

The eBeam System 3 BT by Luidia Inc. (www.luidia.com) brings cordless interactivity to standard whiteboards. Utilizing Bluetooth technology, the eBeam System 3 BT allows PCs, Macs, Palms or Pocket PCs to capture notes, images and drawings from a standard whiteboard. Movement of the special marker sleeves is transmitted to the eBeam receiver placed in one corner of the whiteboard, specifying the color and position. The receiver then transmits the whiteboard's data so that any Bluetooth-enabled PC or handheld equipped with eBeam software will display an exact replica of the whiteboard, which can then be saved for future reference.
