Cloud-based platform turns 80-inch touchscreens into giant iPads
Presentation platform developer FlowVella has now integrated its software into large-format displays developed by manufacturer Sharp. FlowVella allows users to develop their own apps or create their own multimedia presentations similar to those found on iPads and smartphones and that can now be integrated in real time on a Sharp 80-inch display, according to a press release.
FlowVella allows companies to create videos, sound bites or slides on any iPad mobile digital device or Mac computer running FlowVella and then transfer it to a display via the cloud. Essentially, it enables users to sync their Apple devices or computers with a large-format display, essentially turning the display into a giant iPad mobile digital device in real time, the company said. "With Sharp Aquos Board interactive displays and FlowVella, interactive, touch and multimedia experiences can be easily created and deployed on screens up to 80-inch Class (80-inch diagonal), locally or miles away," said Brent Brookler, CEO of Flowvella.
"What can be done with an iPad mobile digital device-driven touchscreen of giant proportions? School-based teaching comes alive, corporate meeting rooms sizzle, building signage becomes interactive in the lobby, companies can tell their story and sell their products and services like never before," Brookler said. "Museums and galleries can augment details and history of their exhibits and artwork — all with video, photos, documents and copy that are interactive and built on an iPad mobile digital device or Mac computer in minutes."
