Pathway Innovations, Inc., an innovative technology leader in the education and enterprise markets, announced that its revolutionary eGlass illuminated glass writing board will be making its long-awaited InfoComm debut. An all-in-one communications tool featuring a built-in camera and adjustable LED lighting, eGlass merges the presenter’s face and writing, along with presentation media, into a single picture for in-person or remote collaboration.
At booth 3943, Pathway will be demonstrating how to jump-start engagement with the award-winning solution, while giving away 20 units to booth visitors over the course of the show.
“When you write on a whiteboard and turn your back to your audience, you lose the valuable face-to-face connection that’s critical for engagement,” said Bayley Pierson, eGlass director of marketing. “And when you turn to your audience, you’re no longer facing the content on the board. eGlass represents a transformative change in collaboration technology by providing a transparent surface on which presenters can write while facing the audience. It draws participants in with the presenter’s facial expressions, body language, and gestures, while the presenter can watch the audience’s faces to gauge interest and understanding.”
Available in 35-inch and 50-inch models, eGlass is easy to set up and use by connecting to a PC, Mac, or Chromebook with a single USB cable. It comes with intuitive software that allows almost any digital content to be seamlessly imported into the camera window, allowing the presenter to markup the content with glowing annotations after automatic background removal is applied. As presenters write on its glass, eGlass’ integrated camera captures their faces, writing, drawings, and annotations, while displaying media from a computer in any format.
eGlass’ software automatically flips the content so it reads correctly for the audience. It offers one-button image capture and video recording features and is compatible with Zoom, Teams and other virtual meeting platforms. LEDs embedded in the unit’s frame intensify the physical pen ink with an eye-catching glow that is highly visible on-screen and in-person. With the ability to add meeting notes, training exercises, brainstorming ideas or engineering diagrams, it is ideal for in-person, remote or hybrid meetings of all types in both higher education and enterprise applications.
To see eGlass in action, stop by booth 3943 at InfoComm 2021, taking place Oct. 27-29 in Orlando, Florida. To be eligible for the in-booth giveaway, attendees must represent a higher learning institution and present their credentials in-person to an eGlass representative.
