Luidia Lets Amazon Kindle Users View eBeam Interactive Whiteboard Content
SAN CARLOS, Calif. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Luidia, Inc., the award-winning developer of eBeam interactive whiteboard technology, today announced that its eBeam software now allows users to send a wide variety of interactive whiteboard-generated content directly to their Amazon Kindle or Kindle DX. Kindle is Amazon's wireless reading device that allows customers to download books, blogs, magazines and newspapers to a crisp, high-resolution electronic paper display that looks and reads like real paper. Luidia is the first interactive whiteboard developer to provide this feature, which lets teachers, students and business users send presentations, lessons and notes to Amazon Kindle devices, the bestselling product across the millions of items sold by Amazon.
Luidia users have long been able to save content from whiteboard sessions - including material generated by or annotated with dry-erase markers - to laptops and other personal computers. Now, Luidia's software makes saving whiteboard content to both a Kindle and Kindle DX as easy as choosing "Send to Kindle" on a pull-down menu. Students can review class lessons, parents can see what children have studied in class, and businesses can review presentations and brainstorming sessions on their Kindle. This new feature is not only convenient, it also is a paperless, environmentally friendly alternative to taking conventional notes.
"As consumer technologies evolve, so too does eBeam," said Luidia CEO Rafi Holtzman. "Educators and corporations could already capture everything that takes place in a classroom or meeting with an eBeam system. Now they can also use a Kindle or Kindle DX to review those lessons and presentations - wherever and whenever they want."
Luidia's "Send to Kindle" feature is included in the latest free eBeam software upgrade, available at http://www.luidia.com/downloads.html. Whiteboard content can be sent from any Windows computer in a choice of formats, including PDF, JPEG and BMP.
