Our HP Sprout Demo and Tutorial (Video)

Last week, we welcomed Roger Pestereff, HP Immersive Systems Business Development Manager, to Ballyroan Library, part of the South Dublin County Council Libraries. David O'Reilly, who is part of the sales team here at Sord Data Systems, organised his visit so he could pass on his knowledge of the HP Sprout Pro. 

Ballyroan library is located in Rathfarnham, and what a lovely library it is. Coleesa and the rest of the staff ensured we were all well looked after before, during and after the event. Tea and coffee was provided along with a mountain of delicious wraps and sandwiches. There was even an option for the vegans! We would like to use this opportunity to say thank you for the wonderful hospitality. 

Roger began his presentation by running us through all the features on the HP Sprout Pro. He gave us all a clear understanding of what this product can be used for and what industries can benefit from such technology. For example, it allows students and teachers to reimagine education. You can create applications to turn Sprout into a kiosk at a bank or a catalogue in a shoe shop to help customers shop for longer. Or, use it as a complex assembly system if you work in the manufacturing industry. The benefits are endless.

HP are revolutionising interactivity. Sprout Pro allows it's user to manipulate the physical and digital world with immersive technology such as high res cameras, a touch mat and 2D and 3D scanning and printing capabilities. 

Roger then showed us exactly what this product can do. A camera which was hooked up to the projector screen allowed him to give us a practical look at it's capabilities. You could tell that everyone in the room was interested in what was happening. Roger was asked plenty of questions that he was happy to answer and afterwards, nearly everyone in the room was able to use Sprout Pro themselves. Ballyroan Library already has a Sprout Pro, but Roger brought six more with him, so everyone was able to get a go at it. 

Roger gave a great presentation and there was plenty of interest because of it. Everyone here at Sord would like to thank him for making the journey from England to chat to us about this amazing product. Check out our video from the demo and tutorial below!
