I have to agree with you Jim, in that it is also my choice and now I've gone and committed myself as well! I was quite impressed by the presentation in Atlanta.
I'll thank Mike for not only sharing his ideas and tech sources but also for making us think about the advantages of embracing technology on all levels.
I was a bit skeptic about these visualization programs -- but now I'm going to see if the concept works, as I just went online and ordered a camera that will be dedicated to this job...
After bouncing between the S1 and the S2, I opted for the Canon Powershot S2 IS.........the optical zoom and lens quality being the deciding issue.
I also made two visits to my local IT company yesterday and today, and have them building me a new PC for this function. It will have the Pentium 4 Processor and the 1GB RAM as recommened and will sit in our customer accessable area to replace the current computer that operates our Art Information software currently.
I'll still utilize my existing 17 inch CRT monitor for the customers, but will be adding a second flat monitor along with a monitor hub, so that we can view the entire process easily as well from our side of the counter.
We will now go ahead and incorporate this new PC into our network, and add a remote keyboard and mouse. By doing it in this manner, the screen will be within the customers reach, while our staff can operate the presentation from behind the design counter.
I'll take pictures of the setup once it's completed in a couple of weeks. The only two pieces of software operating on the new PC will be Art Information and Integrated Framer. I'll keep you posted.
