Kaptivo is a brand new accessory that transforms any whiteboard into a live, online collaboration tool. This is the dream gadget/productivity tool for small and medium-sized business owners, entrepreneurs, educators and nomadic workers: a way to have remote meetings and let everyone collaborate as if everyone was in the same room.
Kaptivo is a connected micro-optical camera, housed in a stylish design, that sits above any whiteboard. With Kaptivo installed, everything you write on your whiteboard can be shared in real time with colleagues working remotely, or distributed to your team afterwards as a PDF document. There’s no need to take notes or pictures of the board any more. Kaptivo delivers crisp images for real-time wireless sharing and streaming. You can even rewind your whiteboard to a particular point in the meeting to see how an idea developed and share this timeline of content that is generated “smartly” as a PDF document.
Using patented computer vision algorithms, Kaptivo extracts only the content you write on your whiteboard. It’s easy to use. Just work with your whiteboard as you normally would. Use any pen, any color, any number of people collaborating. As you work, everything you write is captured automatically. With a secure invitation, anyone can access your whiteboard via their web browser on any computer or mobile device.
With 50 million whiteboards in use in corporate meeting spaces, hotels, serviced offices and educational establishments across the world, we plan to focus initially on the small-medium business market. We are looking at segmenting this market opportunity geographically and will be adding strategic channel partners in each of the key verticals. Let us know if you would be interested in helping out.
