Spectrum Internet gets ‘hands on’ at Digital Cardiff Showcase Hub

Cardiff Council have recently opened their doors to their ‘Digital Cardiff Showcase’ in County Hall.

The shiny new hub provides “hands-on” experience of new technologies and equipment to Cardiff businesses.  Spectrum Internet believe that the best way to get to grips with new, improved technology and understand how it can benefit your business is to play with it. The digital showcase provides local businesses with the opportunity to do so.

Spectrum Internet, who’ve connected almost 50 businesses under the Super Connected Cardiff scheme, recently visited the hub and believe it’s a great asset to the Digital Cardiff scheme as the team can now show local businesses how superfast broadband can transform their day to day working life. It also provides an opportunity for businesses to discuss the application form and process with the team.

On entering the hub you’ll be sure not to miss the 165” video wall showcasing the Digital Cardiff project. Alongside this, the technologies Cardiff Council demonstrate includes:

SMART Board Presentation Display 

Easy collaborative presentations can be achieved with the SMART Board. Featuring a high-definition, shadow-free LED-backlit LCD display, the display has intuitive multitouch capabilities and support for natural touch gestures.

Video Conferencing

More and more businesses move over to video conferencing after installation of superfast broadband. The Polycom Group 500 is ideal for conference rooms, with HD video, dual screens and a simple user interface it’s easy to take part in a conference call with clients all around the world.

Touchscreen Tables

The Samsung SUR40 touch screen tables run on Microsoft PixelSense software and is designed primarily for use by commercial customers to use in public settings. People interact with the product using direct touch interactions and by placing objects on the screen.

3D Printer

This printer prints in 3D by melting plastic filament, then draws with it in a very fine layer. It then builds another fine layer of plastic on top of this one, and then another, building your idea in slices from the bottom up until you have a plastic object ready to hold. This can be useful for easily building prototypes in a cost efficient manner.

3D Scanner 

Scans objects to create 3D models you can modify, improve, share, and 3D print. There’s no design, 3D modelling, or CAD expertise required.

Apple iMac

Running the latest software, the iMac is great for video or sound editing. It’s also powerful enough for even the most resource hungry software with its superfast processor.

Other Equipment 

There is also a number of tablet devices available including Apple iPads, Samsung Galaxy Tabs and Lenovo Thinkpad Tablets – great for modern businesses on the move.
