Prevent the typical bottlenecks of the “laptop huddle” that get in the way of effective group work. Get the team working together interactively on a public worksurface — instead of separately on individual laptops — so everyone has a chance to fully participate.
All the team’s joint work is done on the big screen, which is driven by the TeamSpot “Host” computer. Rather than huddling around a single computer that only one person controls, anyone in the team can send to, and manipulate content on, the shared Host desktop that no one person owns but everyone can share.
Your laptop (or mobile device) is your personal workspace, but you don’t have to display its screen to everyone to share your individual work. Since the group’s work happens on the the Host computer’s desktop, you can use your laptop to work “off screen” in parallel with the main group. This can be useful when you need to research a point or develop an idea while the rest of the team continues working.
The TeamSpot Host computer drives the big screen to create an always-accessible public worksurface where digital content can be shared and modified. Anyone in the group can redirect their own cursor onto the public worksurface and work on the Host computer’s desktop as if their mouse and keyboard were plugged directly into it. Multiple people can even work on the big screen at the same time, each with a uniquely identified cursor.
TeamSpot makes moving digital content within the team simple. Files, websites, and folders can be sent to, and opened on, any computer joined to the TeamSpot. Copy text from one laptop and immediately paste it on another. Information mobility is more powerful than projecting a laptop screen because once a file is moved to the public worksurface, anyone can change it directly rather than waiting for a “scribe” to do it.
