Bluescape is a cloud-based platform, sometimes referred to as “Software-as-a-Service” (SaaS). This means that all you need to access Bluescape is a computer with an internet connection and a web browser.
In addition to the web browser, you can use Bluescape-enabled “Walls”, which are large touch-enabled monitors controlled by a computer and software. This creates a premium working experience in a conference room, executive briefing center, or other group space. Walls are ideal for presentations or working in-person with large groups.
To access Bluescape, go to https://client.apps.us.bluescape.com/my and sign in.
Google Chrome is the recommended browser. Other browsers can be used, however with some limitations.
A Wall is one or more touch screen monitors that are configured to run Bluescape via a connected computer. This connected computer is referred to as a controller. It enables you to interactively create, collaborate, and present on the monitors.
You can send your workspace to a Wall from your web browser or mobile device. This is different from screen sharing. The Wall becomes another participant in the workspace, and members can interact independently from the device that sent the workspace to the wall. On a Wall, touch actions are used to interact with workspace assets.
Whether accessing Bluescape via a web browser or a Wall, the overall experience is similar. However, each medium provides its own unique benefits. One might be preferable over the other, depending on your goal.
For example, if your work is drawing-intensive, a Wall might be better than a non-touch device.
If you need to enter text, the Web version might be the best option since you can use a keyboard.
In general, accessing a workspace via a Wall is better suited to tasks like whiteboarding, group presentations, and team-based work. The Web version is well suited for adding, organizing, and reviewing content.
Mobile devices such as iPhones and Android smartphones can be used to access Bluescape through a web browser. However, these devices are not officially supported, so some functionality is lost. Additionally, the smaller screen does not allow for optimal visibility.
For mobile devices, we recommend using the Bluescape mobile app. Learn more about Bluescape Mobile.
