Multiaction makes collaboration possible – visually
August 19th, 2014 by Susan Smith
I’m amazed at just how far interactive display technology has come in the past five years.
MultiTaction, from MultiTouch Ltd., is an interactive display system that is used as a digital collaboration tool for architects. Mulitple users can use the MultiTaction interactive display now that MultiTouch has partnered with Bluescape, a platform that supports an unlimited number of people and teams. They can create, interact with and share content which will in turn accelerate business projects and decision making in real-time.
Bluescape allows video hosting all over the world. Users can have up to 24 displays going on one PC, in table, landscape or portrait mode. The 2D bar code can uniquely identify objects. In addition, the product allows unlimited ability to support optical markers, and use an infrared pen simultaneously and independently. You can also stack as many displays as you want or in any configuration you want.
According to the company spokesmen, Bluescape is now supported by the MultiTaction iWall and MultiTaction Cell 55” ultra-thin bezel (UTB), which can be incorporated as seamless, tile-able interactive walls or easel installations. Users will benefit from MultiTaction’s real-time engagement and responsiveness features. The Bluescape software provides 160 acres in the cloud to pull together users’ existing business data, applications, workflows and processes into one secure and central location.
