Canvas CRS-4K

Collaborative Visualization for Teams

Canvas has set the standard for collaborative visualization on smartphones, tablets, PCs, and control room display walls. Global 2000 companies in fields from finance to pharmaceuticals to oil and gas, construction, engineering, and electric utilities, as well as governments and public agencies, use Canvas to manage operations. The Canvas CRS-4K™ system extends the power of Canvas’ award-winning solution to teams working in conference rooms and huddle rooms.

The Canvas CRS-4K system is a small, quiet box that can be located anywhere in the room. What it enables is enormous.

With the CRS-4K, teams in huddle rooms can collaborate with remote colleagues running Canvas on almost any device, sharing live video, real-time data, application screens, web windows, documents, and presentations. Users can annotate onscreen, coordinate using voice and text chat, share whiteboards, and jointly edit documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. The CRS-4K supports up to four 1080p HD displays or a single 4K Ultra HD display.

Real Collaboration, Real Work

Developed specifically for the meeting room, the CRS-4K system is all about teamwork and access to a 360° view of operations. All of Canvas’ rich, familiar set of collaboration tools are available, enabling distant colleagues to work together as if they were in the same place.

Even colleagues without Canvas can participate. SimpleShare technology allows any user to walk into a conference room and wirelessly present their laptop screen to both local and remote Canvas participants. No cables to connect, no dongles to hunt down. A multi-touch web-based interface supports most tablets, providing easy control of canvas placement and resizing, as well as video previews.

Canvas CRS-4K™ In Action

Measuring only 3.8” x 8.7” x 12.9”, the CRS-4K system is at home on the conference room table, on a shelf, or in an equipment closet. The CRS-4K supports viewing up to 8 simultaneous sources, including H.264 video streams, VNC viewer windows, web windows, and SimpleShare windows. Four Mini DisplayPort connections support up to four 1080p HD displays or one 4K Ultra HD display.

The CRS-4K’s high performance graphics system is ideal for use in Engineering and Design (CAD/CAE/AEC), Geographical Information Systems (GIS) & Visualization, Oil & Gas, Life Sciences, Digital Content Creation (DCC) & Digital Media, and other demanding applications.
