Product Specifications
  • Canvas from Jupiter Systems enables any source on the traditional display wall— video, data, applications, and more—to be shared with colleagues logged onto their PCs or mobile devices down the hall, across campus, or around the world. With Canvas, groups of related sources can be aggregated for sharing when more than one view of an operation is essential to a fuller understanding of status.

    Canvas delivers end-to-end collaboration. Users can share streams and collaborate from anywhere in the network: at the main display wall, on PCs, and on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. Remote clients can be both sources and destinations for visual information. And, unique in the industry, Canvas allows users to annotate directly on live video streams.

    No matter what needs attention or who sees it first, any situation captured in a stream can be shared quickly and easily with team members, regardless of their location.

    Canvas brings a rich set of familiar tools for collaboration and allows them to be used in ways that no other system can. For the first time, managers at multiple locations can annotate on top of moving video. Where other products require users to capture a still image of a screen for annotation, Canvas enables its users to draw with a mouse, finger or stylus on the video itself. Areas of interest can be circled, labeled, called out, annotated freehand. Rectangles and other shapes can be dragged from the toolbar on to any area in the video where they can be resized, colored, and titled. Text can be typed directly on the video. Whiteboards can be created for brainstorming. Users can share ideas with Canvas' built-in instant messaging.
