When it comes digital whiteboards, there are options like Microsoft’s Surface Hub, and Google’s Jam board, but then HP seems to have a completely different idea of the whiteboard, and it kind of likes the traditional whiteboard instead.
HP today launched a collaborative digital whiteboard which captures whatever you write on the traditional white board with sketch pen (dry-erase board), and share it through a secure feed for participants to watch, and learn. The real time streaming can be seen even though a web browser, and you don’t need any special app for that.
The whole setup comes in two parts. The first one is a rectangular unit which mounts beside your white board, and the second one is the camera which mounts on top of your board. It points towards where you write. Once connected, all you need to do is push the button. It is also equipped with lights.
- Users will be able to record, and save meeting annotations, drawings and save them as Adobe PDF files.
- It includes a timeline feature, nope not Windows 10, that will help to go back and forward.
- Setting up is simple.
HP SharedBoard will be available in December, but HP hasn’t disclosed its pricing as of now. There is not much detail about its hardware as well, and the software which lets you do annotations, and saving the PDF file. We will keep you posted about it.
