Using ILS lecterns
sho-Q was developed with ILS intelligent lecterns in mind, but will run on any touch screen monitor and PC. sho-Q 2020 will run on any All-in-one TouchPC with HD resolution as well.
Systems must have the ability to run in extended desktop mode between your sho-Q monitor and the audience projection screen (or other large monitors for audience to view).
All ILS lecterns are very user-friendly and feature large embedded touch screens. Several lecterns come with a choice of flexible options for audio and system control. Intelligent presenter lecterns will allow you to run professionally organized events with seamless transitions from one speaker to the other. All distractions have been eliminated so your audience will retain what is being said much better.
With the release of sho-Q2020 we added functionality that is appreciated by teachers, trainers and lecturers using a pen interactive monitor.
This package complements sho-Q with generous whiteboard functions, seamless Document Camera integration, more elaborate annotations, you can jump out of your presentation and show pictures, documents, movies and web pages at any point without having to embed these within the PowerPoint presentation. Your presentation will automatically continue where you left off. sho-Q2020 saves all your slide annotations.
