eBeam appoints Stampede Europe as distributor


eBeam, a provider of interactive and collaborative displays, has appointed Stampede to serve as its exclusive distribution partner for the UK and a distribution partner for parts of Europe.

Stampede will immediately make available all eBeam solutions – the Edge+ System, the Edge System, and all Edge Accessories – to its network of UK and select European territory resellers.

Stampede President and COO Kevin Kelly said: "The timing of this partnership is ideal for prospective eBeam customers, as most of the interactive boards purchased under BECTA are transitioning out of warranty. By retrofitting their current, yet dated whiteboard solution with an eBeam system, teachers and executives can cost-effectively restore to full functionality that which is no longer under warranty."

The eBeam Edge+ System is offered in three versions – Edge+ USB, Edge+ Wireless, and Edge+ Complete, which includes an Edge Marker Pack. All three versions come standard with an eBeam sensor – which is fastened alongside the desired surface and is what transforms a flat surface into one that can be written on and interacted with – and a stylus writing tool. The Edge+ Wireless System also includes a USB plugin that enables wireless connectivity.

Available accessories for the Edge+ System include the aforementioned Marker Pack and the Display Bracket. The Marker Pack includes an eraser and four marker sleeves that capture and stream anything you write or draw on your whiteboard with regular dry-erase markers, while the Display Bracket attaches the eBeam sensor to any modern LCD display thus transforming it into an interactive screen for teaching, sharing and presenting.
