Span software links three displays to create a first-of-its-kind immersive environment

Calgary, Alberta --- March 7, 2016 --- Nureva Inc., an award-winning collaboration-solutions company, announces the creation of a 30' (9.1 m) immersive collaboration environment that surrounds teams with their digital content. The surround experience is created by three panoramic projectors installed on adjoining walls and enabled by a multidisplay setup tool in Span software. This tool links the computers and merges the cloud-based canvas across the three systems. The resulting immersive environment gives teams a truly expansive view of their content, which comprises digital sticky notes, sketches, images and flip charts.

This configuration transforms huddle rooms into rich environments for creativity and innovation. As in any project room, team members benefit from being close to their content. Every detail is within easy reach, and content can be fluidly and efficiently moved across walls and around corners. Panning at any location seamlessly moves the whole canvas and its contents around all three walls. The result is more efficient collaboration and an enhanced sensory experience with users reporting reduced distractions and a heightened focus on their content. Team members can quickly identify connections, fill in gaps and see relationships that spark new ideas. In addition, the system’s cloud-based software enables in-room and remote participants to access the material any time through personal devices.

“Wrapping a room with 30' of digital content takes immersive collaboration to a new level,” said Nancy Knowlton, Nureva’s CEO. “Creating a surround experience with the Span system was a logical next step to support the collaboration needs of our customers with products that fit with their processes and physical spaces.”

About the Span system

The Span system combines one or multiple panoramic projectors with a projection surface and Span software to display an expansive digital canvas. Participants create and capture their ideas on their personal devices, either a computer or tablet, and share them in the cloud. The system draws upon familiar, simple and flexible tools already widely used in paper-based collaboration processes 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, challenges of including remote participants in the process, the need for transcription, and storage and retention of the work).

Availability and pricing

The Span system is available today through a network of authorized Nureva dealers and distributors in North America and Western Europe. For information about system configurations or to find a local reseller, please email Nureva at sales@nureva.com or call direct at 587.774.6647.
