LAS VEGAS, NV – Electronics For Imaging, Inc. (EFI) (NASDAQ: EFII), the world leader in enabling networked printing solutions, today introduced the next generation of software for the eBeam Internet office appliance at the Consumer Electronics Show. The eBeam system captures meeting notes and diagrams as they are created on existing whiteboards and broadcasts them over the Internet or corporate intranet in real time. eBeam Moderator and eBeam Presenter software will give educators, corporate trainers, and remote teams greater flexibility in sharing and annotating documents and whiteboard notes.
eBeam Moderator, a free upgrade from the version 1.1 software, features a new user interface; a fully integrated eBeam MouseTM application; the ability to choose line thickness and color for each individual pen sleeve, and enhanced meeting hosting options. Users can also insert background images from other applications into whiteboard meetings for all participants to view and annotate.
“For presenters and meeting participants, the eBeam system is the perfect tool for enriching communication during meetings and presentations,” says Rafi Holtzman, general manager, eBeam. “Business users depend upon a variety of software applications for their meetings and presentations. Now users can enhance teamwork between remote locations by incorporating their spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, or other documents into one shared space and by using the eBeam system to annotate those materials, as well. The new eBeam Moderator software creates a more productive shared experience for all meeting participants.”
