The video and review of TEAMBOARD comes from www.anseo.net


Just before I published the June Interactive Whiteboard review, I came across the Teamboard IWB.  I said that as soon as I had some time to play around with it, I’d give it a review.  I contacted the company who sell the board, Sight and Sound, who are based in Dublin, and they lent me their demo board for the summer course I gave.

I also mentioned that the Teamboard looked like a decent prospect and guessed that it cost around €3,000-€3,500.  I was absolutely right.  The Teamboard is very very similar to the Traceboard but it costs €3,200 with a long-throw projector.  So, this board allows the user to interact with their finger or a pen but also allows him/her to use dry wipe markers on it.

There’s a couple of other nice features on this board.  I like the way you do a “right-click” with your finger – simply press down on the board and wait a couple of seconds.  I also like the feature that you can turn the projector off and use some “special” markers, which show up on the board.  However, as well as simply showing up on the board, if you’ve got your laptop plugged in, the laptop recognises the writing and saves it into a flipchart.  This is an extremely useful feature and very impressive.  I don’t think there’s another board out there that does this.  I will try and film a video of this in action to explain better.

The downside of this board is minor and represents the downside of almost every IWB – the software is fairly poor.  I loaded Promethean’s excellent ActivStudio on it and it became a super IWB!  The only other little irk is the price, which is nearly €800 more expensive that the Traceboard.
I see this Interactive Whiteboard as one of the best quality that I’ve seen. I would go as far as saying that it is about as good as the Hitachi Starboard and marginally better than the Traceboard.  Essentially, if this board cost €750 less, I would put it top of the table.  Moreover, the board comes with an excellent guarantee and service.  Smartboard – beware: the touch-based IWB market is growing and you’re losing ground.

NB: Since this article was written TEAMBOARD have taken on board Simons comments and brought the cost down so that it can now compete well with most other boards who have lesser features.

TEAMBOARD INFORMATION

Cost of 77″ Diagonal Teamboard is reduced to €1595 + VAT

TeamBoard is an interactive electronic whiteboard, providing all of the functions of a traditional white board and many more. TeamBoard is easy to use. Simply connect it to a computer and information can be captured and saved during a meeting. It provides opportunities for audio-visual and data conferencing and it’s great for training and presentation rooms when used in conjunction with multimedia projection equipment.

TeamBoard Capture Mode
Connect TeamBoard to your computer and what you write on it is displayed simultaneously on your computer. This is an excellent tool to augment traditional teaching methods, especially for training rooms and classrooms. You simply use the TeamBoard as a regular whiteboard but your computer captures everything you draw or write, which you can save, print, e-mail or fax from your PC. There are no information delays.

TeamBoard Projection Mode
Used as a projection screen with a multimedia projector, TeamBoard’s touch-sensitive surface allows you to use your finger as a mouse. Participants can see you present effectively and you will benefit from their full attention. This is especially relevant for those involved in technology training. TeamBoard, utilising resistive touch-sensitive technology, features a durable, dry-wipe marker writing surface which has a low gloss level, ideal for projection. Once computer images are projected onto the TeamBoard surface, you can use the included annotation software to draw or write notes over your image. These can be saved and then printed for handouts. This means that presentations are exactly that, rather than note taking sessions.
