Chief has begun shipping its new Interactive Short Throw Mount. The solution integrates Chief's short-throw projector mount line with eBeam Technology from Luidia, a company that develops interactive solutions. Existing whiteboards and writing surfaces can be transformed into interactive platforms, with projection that can be scaled from 48 to 94 inches diagonally, according to the company.
The solution features a quick-connect system and variable extension to make mount installation and registration easy, Chief officials said. Users install the eBeam interactive business or education software for Mac or PC, connect the computer and projector, and they're ready to go. The system comes with a lightweight stylus and an interactive receiver powered by the eBeam technology. Combined, the solution allows users to present, annotate, and interact with projected content while capturing the results, which can then be shared over the Internet for remote meetings. Features include a dynamic virtual whiteboard, desktop and Web navigation, and office productivity apps.
Chief's short-throw projector mount provides universal projector compatibility and an easy upgrade path. Existing Chief short-throw projector mounts can be upgraded to include interactivity by purchasing a WM2I Interactive Kit.
"We're excited to be able to combine Luidia's innovative interactive technology with our Chief short-throw projector mounts," said Scott Gill, Milestone AV Technologies CEO, in a statement. "By combining our easy-to-install short-throw mount solution with any compatible projector, we can make interactivity simpler and more affordable for educational and corporate applications."
The new Chief Interactive Mounts will work with standard projectors and both Windows and Mac computers and integrates with existing applications.
