InFocus Introduces Canvas Touch as ISE 2016
InFocus today announced Canvas Touch, developed to offer Canvas customers an all-in-one Canvas touchscreen display, Canvas Touch connects to other Canvas users on smartphones, tablet, PCs and video walls. Canvas Touch combines award-winning Canvas collaboration software developed by Jupiter Systems with touchscreen technology from InFocus to expand the use and ease of Canvas. Jupiter Systems was acquired by InFocus Corporation in October 2015 to create ground-breaking solutions in collaboration and communication. InFocus Canvas Touch will debut at the InFocus booth (A-252) at the Integrated Systems Conference (ISE) in Amsterdam, Feb. 9-12.
Canvas software creates a consolidated operating picture for enterprises by enabling the easy real-time sharing of live video, data, applications, web pages and whiteboards — on any device, from any location, for seamless collaboration. Canvas Touch extends this power by placing Canvas, along with its rich collaboration toolset, anywhere the enterprise needs it, conveniently housed in a display unit with on-board PC and operable by the touch of a finger. Using the same dynamic, bi-directional annotation, editing and data sharing power available in Canvas along with an HD capacitive touch display, users can share and collaborate in real-time from multiple locations, just as they would if they were working in the same room.
Canvas Touch displays up to six simultaneous sources from the Canvas environment, including H.264 streams, VNC viewer windows, web windows and SimpleShare windows, which enables wireless presentation of content from any laptop or desktop. Windows 10-based, Canvas Touch features an elegant, familiar interface with extended features. Standards compliant and network agnostic, remote users without a Canvas client can share video and audio connection from a SIP-based videoconference system. Microsoft Skype for Business is also supported.
Canvas Touch is available immediately in a 65-inch diagonal screen size. The product is available for purchase through select InFocus resellers; pricing dependent upon the model size and resolution options. For more information on InFocus’ other collaboration systems, go here.
