PortraitBoard™ is mission control for your home. It combines digital art and photography with a twist of technology, and it's the smartest thing you'll ever hang on your wall.
Stacks Image 295729

Just because technology is becoming more personal doesn't mean it has to be limited to a small screen.

Our smartphones and tablets are awesome; but let's face it, they're not for the living room. Our living space is about interaction and sharing. That's where PortraitBoard™ comes in.

PortraitBoard™ starts with a 42" or larger HD touch display that is embedded flush into the wall or mounted like framed art.

From there, your images are displayed the way they should be: life size.

The content is layered on - realtime, self-updating information that will save you from wearing out your phone's power button.

Lastly, PortraitBoard™ can integrate with your home's systems to make it easier to monitor and control aspects of your world.
It's All About Content, Control & Beauty

  • Features & Content
    Yes, many social media sites offer users the ability to view their feeds and images on PortraitBoard™. Available content varies by social media outlet.
    Yes and no. PortraitBoard™ does a lot of things. With its ability to customize content and visuals using standards-based technologies, you are only limited by your imagination. With that said, PortraitBoard™ is not a “gadget” that requires individual apps in order to add functionality; it’s a piece of technology designed to enhance your living environment.
    The technical answer is yes. However, since most people already have a better way of doing those activities through their televisions and smart devices, we have chosen to focus features where those devices fall short.
    You decide what you want PortraitBoard™ to display, when to display it, and when to update content. Want to add a new calendar? Easy. Want to display your social media feed? Easy. Want to change when PortraitBoard™ turns on and shuts down each day? Easy. Want to display a special message on a birthday or anniversary? Easy. You are in control.
    Most IP-based cameras will work just fine. Some cloud-based cameras require additional setup to work with PortraitBoard™. You can use local cameras or remote cameras from a vacation home or office.
  • Hardware & Installation
    PortraitBoard™ can either be embedded into the wall for a flush look, or mounted to a wall, like a picture frame. We offer several finishing options to complement your particular space.
    PortraitBoard™ only requires standard electrical and an internet connection. Depending on your Wi-Fi signal and content requirements, a wired network connection may be required.
    PortraitBoard™ fits in very well where it is seen most throughout the day. In most homes, that would be in a family or great room or in or near the kitchen.
    Absolutely! In fact, the possibilities are endless how PortraitBoard™ can be used to enhance your operation or promote your products and services.
  • Privacy & Security
    No, and we consider this a feature. No microphones or cameras = no possibility of spying.
    We do not track usage nor collect any data on your PortraitBoard™. We consider ourselves a fiduciary to our PortraitBoard™ owners. We do not share anything about our customers with any third party. We only monitor performance metrics to make sure your PortraitBoard™ is always running smoothly.
    Yes, all incoming and outgoing traffic is encrypted. Much of the most-sensitive data, such as personal images, environmental status, and custom content is stored locally - not in a cloud server.
    Sadly, we live in a world where it appears nothing is 100% hack-free. With that said, we do our best to keep your PortraitBoard™ secure using the latest software libraries, security technologies, and simple common sense.
  • Other
    No, all standard features are included for life. There are optional services available, which may require additional monthly or annual fees.
    If your home or office is portable, then yes!
    Yes, PortraitBoard™ comes with a full-year warranty.
    No, in fact if you do nothing to it, it will continue to deliver your content without any need to manage it. Everything is self-updating, so you will never have to deal with those pestering “Updates are available, click to install” type messages.

    However, the fun with PortraitBoard™ comes with interacting with it. We have made this as easy as possible with a simple and clean interface. Best part? There is virtually no way to “break it” by interacting with it.* (*Yes, you can still break it physically. This is NOT recommended as it will certainly void your warranty!)
About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things.
