WM210i and WM220i deliver 10' and 20' of seamless collaboration space

Calgary, Alberta --- August 25, 2015 --- Nureva Inc., an early-stage technology company, announces that its award-winning Span ideation system is now shipping in North America. The system combines one or two panoramic projectors with a digital canvas to create an expansive team workspace that draws upon familiar, simple and flexible tools already widely used in paper-based ideation, including notes, images, sketches and flip charts. The WM210i measures 10' 2" wide (3.10 m) by 4' high (1.22 m), with 130" (3.3 m) on the diagonal. The WM220i model includes two panoramic projectors installed side-by-side to create a team workspace measuring 20' 2" wide (6.15 m) by 4' high (1.22 m), with 245" (6.2 m) on the diagonal.

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 challenges (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 space that previously may have been dedicated to a single team for months.

“Feedback on the Span ideation system has been very positive, and we look forward to hearing from even more customers now that the system is widely available,” said Nancy Knowlton, Nureva’s CEO. “Beyond industry awards, indications are that our Span ideation system is hitting the mark for companies that value innovation and collaboration among co-located and remote teams.”

Additional product details

Shared canvas

The canvas offers 40' (12.19 m) of digital space (10' 2" visible on the WM210i and 20' 2" visible on the WM220i) that can be panned horizontally. Users contribute content in the form of notes, sketches, flip charts and images from their personal devices and organize content by moving and grouping.

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 30" x 42" (76.2 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

Personal app

The 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.

Panoramic projectors

The HD panoramic projector creates an ultrawide display in a 16:6 aspect ratio at 3000 lumens. A contrast ratio of 1800:1 (native)/10,000:1 (APM) provides consistent, high-performance color and a rich viewing experience. Solid-state illumination (SSI) means instant-on/off and delivers the same 25,000 hours of useful life as most flat-panel displays. Touch and pen interactivity are provided by a touch module, supporting simultaneous multiuser and multitouch activities.

Image-alignment module

On the WM220i model, the image-alignment module melds the two projected images through an onscreen alignment process performed at the time of installation to create one seamless 20' 2" wide (6.15 m) image.
