Business system to be available through a network of value-added distributors and dealers

Calgary, Alberta --- November 26, 2015 --- Nureva Inc., an award-winning collaboration solutions company, announces that both of its business products, the Nureva™ Span ideation system models WM210i and WM220i, will be available in Europe through a network of value-added distributors and dealers in January 2016. Ideal for design, creative processes and business-process reengineering, the Span ideation system combines a panoramic projector with a 4' by 40' (1.2 m by 12.2 m) digital canvas to create an expansive 10' or 20' (3.0 m or 6.1 m) team workspace. Ideation participants create their ideas on their personal devices, either a computer or tablet, and share them on the team workspace in the cloud. The system draws upon familiar, simple and flexible tools already widely used in paper-based ideation including sticky notes, sketches, images and flip charts.The digital canvas retains all of the flexibility that paper-based systems offer (e.g., large workspaces with persistent information) while overcoming many of the deficiencies (e.g., the awkwardness of physically moving large numbers of sticky notes, sticky notes that fall off the wall, inclusion of remote participants in the process, the need for transcription, and storage and retention of the work). The Span ideation system allows multiple teams to use a collaboration room that previously may have been dedicated to a single team for months.

“We are delighted to launch the Span ideation system in Europe to enable teams to make the transition from paper-based ideation to a dynamic, digital environment,” said Nancy Knowlton, Nureva’s CEO. “We have retained the familiarity, simplicity and flexibility of sticky notes and flip charts and taken ideation to the next level in a fully digital environment.”

Additional product details

Shared canvas

The canvas offers 40' (12.2 m) of digital space, with 10' or 20' (3.0 m or 6.1 m) visible on the panoramic display that can be panned horizontally. Users contribute content in the form of notes, sketches, flip charts and images, and organize content by moving and grouping.

Personal app

Software is accessible on Chrome™ browsers and as apps on iOS and Android™ tablets to enable users to create digital artifacts and post them to the shared canvas.

Digital artifacts

Multiple types of digital artifacts can be created on a personal device or at the canvas:

  • Note – This digital 5" x 3" (12.7 x 7.6 cm) note allows users to enter up to four lines of text
  • Sketch – This digital 12" x 9" (30.5 x 22.9 cm) page for sketching and wire-framing comes with three different ink colors and an eraser
  • Flip chart – This large digital 32" x 42" (81.3 x 106.7 cm) flip chart for capturing notes, decisions and action items comes with three different ink colors, a highlighter and an eraser. One flip chart can contain multiple pages.
  • Image – Users can post images to the canvas, then manipulate them

Panoramic projector

The system’s HD panoramic projector features 3000 lumens on an ultrawide 130" or 245" (3.3 m or 6.2 m) diagonal display in a 16:6 or 16:3 aspect ratio. A contrast ratio of 1800:1 provides a consistent, high-performance color and rich viewing experience. Solid-state illumination (SSI) means instant-on/off and delivers the same useful life of 25,000 hours as most flat-panel displays. Touch and pen interactivity are provided by a touch module that supports simultaneous multiuser and multitouch activities.

Pricing and availability

The software is available on an annual subscription basis and is priced in the local currency. Hardware systems are priced in the local currency.

The systems are available through a network of value-add distributors and dealers and will be broadly available in Europe in January 2016.
