A service is a common name for the type of interaction you wish to establish.
Some examples: Ask questions, Give Feedback, Participate in a poll, Open a web page, Send an email, etc
You need an iPhone or an iPad with the BeamWriter app installed.
After you have set up a service, you need tokens to start beaming it. You can buy tokens in various ways. Please see separate FAQ further down this page or go to the home page and click “Buy Beaming”.
Yes, as an event participant you can pick up and respond to BeamWriter services free of charge, any time.
You need an installation of BeamWriter or BeamReader on your device. Alternatively you may use a web browser in combination with a unique event code issued by the organizer.
The audience can read and respond to beams using iOS or Android mobile phones or tablets, or a PC with a standard browser.
To set up and beam a service, you need an iPhone or iPad.
You can buy tokens through in-app purchase or through our web site. Each beam has a start-up and time-on-air cost, whereby tokens will be deducted from your balance. This “pay-as-go-go” model is suitable for small events and less frequent use of BeamWriter.
Organizers of large scale conferences and event managers who run frequent events, will typically buy vouchers which give access to unlimited beaming within a given time period, (e.g. 1, 2 or 3 days).
Hotels, conference centers and other venue owners or operators may establish a reseller contract, (see next FAQ).
If you host several events per year, we recommend you establish a reseller contract. This means you can buy vouchers from Verbatim Interactive at a discounted rate, and sell them to your customers at RRP. A voucher will typically give your customer access to unlimited beaming for one or more days.
Verbatim Interactive can also provide an infrastructure of beacons in your conference halls, meeting rooms, exhibition areas etc.
Yes, we do.
BeamWriter is intuitive and easy to use on your own. However, to make your first event a success, more than a test, you can benefit from professional assistance in planning and execution. The Verbatim Interactive Team has years of relevant experience in arranging small and large scale events. Together with you we can identify the best opportunities to employ BeamWriter in your setup, e.g.:
- How to inform and motivate participants in advance
- How to trigger their interest in using interactive services
- How to motivate speakers to beam additional information, before, during or after their presentations, run polls and Q & A
- Which beamtypes should you use at different phases of the event
- … and more
We can assist you in hands-on operation during the event and we can train your personnel to take care of this for future events.
We can produce “after action reports” presenting the highlights from collected BeamWriter statistics during the event.
All services are priced at affordable hourly rates.

“Our goal was to boost the interaction between organizers, speakers and conference delegates”
-The Norwegian Defence and Security Industries Association («FSi») is hosting the annual INFO/ERFA-conference.
The conference attracts government and military representatives, as well as national and international defence industry professionals. The agenda focuses on information exchange, updates on current and future acquisition programs and collaboration opportunities.
The 2018 conference gathered some 300 attendees. FSi chose to use «BeamWriter» to boost the interaction between organizers, speakers and conference delegates.
Our experience is exclusively positive:
BeamWriter is easy to use for all involved and has a good range of relevant services to choose from. Already prior to conference kick-off, more than 100 participants had taken to BeamWriter to indicate their expectations and tell us why they chose to attend this year’s INFO/ERFA.
During the conference we logged 1.180 interactions in BeamWriter. These were a mixture of questions, discussion, evaluations, polls and distribution of exclusive content from some of the speakers.
Additionally, FSi used BeamWriter to distribute event information, including list of participants, agenda, booking of meeting rooms, menus and social event program.
FSi has significant previous experience from using various tools for audience interaction during our events. BeamWriter enables two ways communication, has an intuitive user interface and high stability.
The solution contributed to commitment and enthusiasm during this year’s conference, and we recommend BeamWriter for other event managers.
