It would be nice if we could use the Symantec Digital Whiteboard on the iPad.    

Since Windows multi-touch systems are not so popular.

I had to post this here as and Idea since I found no group for the Digital Whiteboard BETA or an e-mail for the development team.   And this would be another Idea,   you should have a way of receiving feedback on this new application.

We are developing the Symantec Digital Whiteboard for the iPad at this time. We anticipate it will be complete in early January 2011. From there, we will submit to Apple for review and posting on iTunes.

When it is available, we will notify those who signed up for the Symantec Digital Whiteboard Beta (desktop edition) when it is on iTunes.

Happy to look into adding more icons. Please send me an email. Just put "Digital Whiteboard" in the subject line, and include any examples that you would like to see.

Many Thanks,

Michael

And the iPad will support Adobe Air?  Weird.

 

More objects would be great too, more branded ones, product specific ones, etc.

 

There is an online portal, save yourself the long hold times. Create ticket online, then call in with ticket # in hand :-) http://mysupport.symantec.com "We backup data to restore, we don't backup data just to back it up."

The iPad version is being developing in the IOS SDK. If you would like specific icons, please just let me know or send me what you are looking for. Just put "Digital Whiteboard" in the subject line.

You can email me at michael_parker@symantec.com.

Many Thanks,

Michael

I was just looking at the latest version yesterday, and it is really coming along. Our desire is to submit this to Apple/iTunes in late January. New version of the Desktop version is coming soon as well.

We do not have a formal release date for the DWB iPad. We are doing our first internal Beta. My goal is to have this on iTunes in the May time frame. Users will be able to take Digital Whiteboards created on the iPad and send to the Desktop version, and open them there - and continue working.

As the desktop by nature will be a bit more powerful and have more functionality, the DWB iPad version should be seen as the lighter, mobile version.

Great News.

Just make sure to include the possibility to transfer the output to an external monitor also when using the Original Ipad.  Since It is important to be able to do whiteboarding sessions in front of an audience; using a video Beam.  

Like the kenote app. that is able to reflect its output to an external video beam or similar.

The beta already supports the iPad out to VGA. It will only show the canvas, not the library or controls, making it a nice experience for the viewer, while giving full control to the creator.

And it looks good on a big screen.

Hi,

Is there a way to add custom icons to the icon library?

Best regards,

There is not a way to add custom graphics in the public Beta. However, we have built the functionality and are testing right now. Immediate additional need is to be able to send the added grahics or icons when you send it. Both in the Desktop and iPad version.

We will look for that functionality in the June/July timeframe.

A word about our desktop version vs. the iPad (or any mobile app) version. Just as Keynote on the MAC is potentially more powerful (or flexibile) than Keynote on the iPad, so it will be with the Symantec Digital Whiteboard. It will not have all the exact same functionality.

And if you have used the Desktop verison on a touch screen (e.g. HP 4200 TouchSmart), that is a powerful experience.

We will have a booth at Symantec VISION 2011. Please stop by to try it out, if you are there.

Hi Michael,

It would be nice to get icons of desktop/server with Windows, Linux, AIX, HP UX logo indicating installed OS, or those pictures separated that can be added and that can represent OS. Same for Exchange/Lotus servers,

Best regards,

Vladimir

We are very sensitive to using other companies logo's. We should have approval to use.

The DWB does allow you to put names under the icon or create your own text and over lay.

Is there any interest in posting the digital whiteboard files we've created to this group?  I have a few I've made around our NAC and .Cloud solutions.

 

thanks!

As I can see (and unfortunately), Symantec Digital Whiteboard will not be available to iPad nor iPad 2.

However, I must to say that I loved SYMC DWB for Desktop.  In fact, several customers ask me about this application when I build a solution on-the-fly in the middle of a meeting.

But now, I use my iPad 2 intensively and I need to do the same "magic tricks" during presentations. So, I want to ask you about very functional applications that operates like DWB for iPad2.

I know there are a lot of Whiteboard application, but I want one where I can work with predefined libraries like SYMC DWB.

Can you suggest me one?

Regards,

On Christmas I will ask Santa for a version of SYMC Digital Whiteboard for my iPad 2 (Please Santa, chat to Mr. Enrique and ask him to allocate budget for developers on this mission)  :-)

Who wants to join this request?

Merry Christmas

DWB is very cool indeed!

But, I need to have icons that are more relevant to our needs in BI/Data Science. 

Can I somehow upload icon files I create?

Tnx

The digital whiteboard is highly beneficial for staff who needs to perform presentations away from their office. The digital whiteboard enables sharing of information like powerpoint slides, visuals and graphics and other applications while on the go. Staff do not need to use a bulky desktop to achieve that when it is accessed via their iPads. Sales and marketing specialists would especially benefit when they are able to showcase their visuals like banners and ads to their clients.
