How to use a Canvas on the MultiTaction Wall
A canvas is the basis for displaying and organizing content—images, videos, documents, and so on—on your video wall. Each canvas is extremely large and extends well beyond the physical screen area. Use hand and finger gestures to drag and resize the visible portion of the canvas.
Info Panel and Canvas Viewer
|Each workspace has an info panel and canvas viewer at the top of the screen. The info panel shows the name of the canvas and the canvas viewer. The canvas viewer is a map of the canvas. It shows a small-scale view of the current viewing location relative to the entire canvas.|
Pin the Canvas
Normally, you can move and resize a canvas. The Pin feature lets you pin or lock the visible area of canvas so that it cannot be moved or resized. To pin the canvas, tap the Pin button in the system menu on the right-hand side of the screen; tap it again to unpin the canvas.
This menu is located on the far right of the
Fit to Screen
|This feature chooses a zoom to achieve a ‘best fit’ on the screens available. In technical terms, it expands or shrinks the viewport to include all items on the canvas. Tap the Fit to Screen button to zoom the canvas in or out so that all content is visible on the screen.|
Anchors are fixed areas of the canvas, defined by users. You can define any area on the canvas as an anchor. You can then jump to an individual anchor or launch a presentation, displaying each anchor in sequence.
To manage your existing anchors, follow these steps:
|You can switch between the different canvases available.|
Using the touch screen
|The hand and finger gestures recognized by MT Canvus are generally the same as the gestures for using smart phones or tablets. For example, use the familiar pinch and spread gestures to zoom in or out:|
The pens supplied with MT Canvus have a touch-activated infrared LED in their tip. Use the pens to annotate screen items such as images, or to draw directly onto the canvas itself. You can set the color and weight of the pen stroke.
|To open the finger menu, tap and hold any empty area of the canvas.|
The standard finger menu includes these items:
Managing your Canvases
|Password Protect a Canvas|
You can import images, videos, PDFs and other documents onto your canvas from a USB memory stick or similar device (for example, a USB portable hard drive). You can also export items from the canvas onto the USB memory stick.
Note that items are copied, not moved.
|Save or Export a Canvas|
You can export a canvas to or from a USB drive. You may want to do this for backup purposes.
|Import a Canvas|
Workspaces enable you to split the viewport into separate sections so that two or more users can work independently on the
screen without interfering with each
By default, there is a single workspace that extends across the entire screen.
You can split a canvas into three areas and define each area using anchors or designating separate canvases for each workspace.
Anchors are fixed areas of the canvas. You can jump to an individual anchor or you can make a presentation or ‘slideshow’ that glides through a series of anchors in a predefined sequence.
To create an anchor:
