Ottawa, Canada – October 29, 2013 – Jupiter Systems, the leading worldwide supplier of collaborative visualization solutions for video walls, PCs, and mobile devices, demonstrated today Canvas 2.0 in Ottawa, the new generation of its award-winning multipoint visualization and collaboration solution for the enterprise. Canvas 2.0 adds support for Apple IOS and Android smartphones and tablets, as well as new onboard instant messaging and invite-to-share features, providing true collaborative visualization for users no matter where they are.
Canvas 2.0 allows users to share sources on display walls, PC, and mobile devices via LAN/WAN and 3G/4G networks. Unique in the industry, Canvas allows users to annotate directly on live video streams, circling or labeling critical people or objects in real time, as events unfold. No matter what needs attention or who sees it first, regardless of their location, team members can quickly and easily share any situation captured in a stream.
“The release of Canvas 2.0 with its new mobile support is critically important for our customers and the industry,” said Brady O. Bruce, Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Alliances at Jupiter. “Video display walls are incredibly useful, but they have been isolated, limited to one location. Traditional solution required managers and operators to be in the same room at the same time to review and analyze information. That’s just not realistic for most enterprises.
“Canvas 2.0, now with support for iOS and Android, moves beyond those limits on participation. Remote users can share streams from anywhere in the network with colleagues at the main display wall or on PCs and mobile devices at other locations. With the ability to collaborate by annotating directly on live video, drawing on a shared whiteboard, and employing built-in instant messaging Canvas 2.0 really extends the easy interactivity that has been a hallmark of the product. The ability to visualize critical content and collaborate from almost any networked device is essential for enterprises, and it will become the new industry standard,” said Bruce.
