Installing Bluescape Wall Client for Windows

A Wall client is a large touch-enabled monitor controlled by a computer running Bluescape Enterprise Wall Client software. This creates a premium work experience in a conference room, executive briefing center, or other group space.

The Bluescape Wall’s immersive and collaborative capabilities are now available on Windows. This makes the Bluescape Wall experience easier to deploy and readily available across entire Organizations at attractive price points.
