Full featured whiteboard

I have been using manu other whiteboards, usually shipping with interactive whiteboards, and this one really suits my needs.


You can write on a standard whiteboard or scribble on top of your desktop, to overlay on your documents and software. This is really nice to setup with a tablet or interactive whiteboard. Unobstrusive icons let you switch from normal use to overlay scribbling.


Ideal for videoconferences to whether explain something on a board or to add to a document that you are sharing on your screen.

eBeam is nice but works only with their hardware. Jamboard, Miro and the like don't do overaly on your desktop, they just allow you to write on a whiteboard. OpenBoard allows to write on top of your desktop and this is really an interesting feature.
