We built Skybeam™ because we were frustrated with constantly managing other temporary solutions for getting web content on TV’s. Consumer streaming devices like Chromecast or Apple TV are not designed to continuously display a single source, they get knocked off-line or go idle when the smartphone or computer leaves the office. Using a dedicated PC requires constant maintenance and carries with it hundreds to thousands of dollars in hidden maintenance and management costs annually.
Skybeam™ breaks this mold by providing a truly turn-key, zero maintenance solution. Set it up once and our technology will disappear into the background allowing your web content to take center stage. The Skybeam™ Receiver functions like an appliance, just add power and the internet and your content will be consistently available. It is the first always-on, always-ready internet appliance designed to display web content 24/7.
The Skybeam™ web service is the glue that connects your web content with your Skybeam™ Receiver. It is a self-service web portal that allows you to configure all of your Permanent Screens™ from a single location. It is as simple as registering your device and copy/pasting the URL you want to display. As we grow we will continue to add features to the Skybeam™service, options like content schedules and real-time monitoring will be rolling out in Q4 of this year.
API and Developer Community
We haven’t stopped there, we are working on a public API that will allow 3rd party developers to directly connect your services with your screens through the Skybeam™ web service. The Skybeam™ platform is enabling an entirely new way for businesses to interact with their cloud data. By permanently displaying your cloud services on dedicated screens your data is no longer lost in a browser tab or buried in your inbox. The Permanent Screen™ view will enable developers to give new meaning to the service they provide to their customers.
Skybeam™ was recently selected by and competed in the Techweek Chicago Launch competition. The product was received with excitement by the startup community and big business alike. Judges graded us highly on our product fit and competitive edge, going to show that every savvy business needs a Skybeam™ receiver.
Risks and challenges:
Our team has been involved in businesses providing B2B hardware products for the last 10 years, managing the full product cycle from product development to manufacturing and fulfillment. We have considerable experience working with contract manufacturers in the US and abroad to deliver products that meet and exceed customer expectation. That being said, there is always uncertainty when it comes to manufacturing and electronics, component availability, pricing and yield are always concerns. Fortunately we are working with industry veterans who have provided products reliably for years. We will do everything in our power to deliver on the goals of this Indiegogo campaign. There is always the chance that we may have to make component substitutions, but we will never sacrifice performance or user experience. We will keep all of our backers updated throughout the process and they will be the first to be informed of any challenges that may arise. You supported us and we will support you. Thank you for supporting Skybeam!!
