Flip-Pal mobile scanner Team Attending RootsTech 2012

Wireless SD Card Technology and Sketch Kit Top List of Demonstrations

The Couragent, Inc. Flip-Pal mobile scanner team will be attending the RootsTech Family History and Technology Conference, Feb. 2-4, 2012, at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, UT. This unique conference brings technologists together with genealogists to find solutions to the challenges of genealogy research. The Flip-Pal mobile scanner team will be located in booth #610.

During the three-day conference members of the Flip-Pal mobile scanner team will demonstrate the benefits of using a wireless SD card to transfer scanned images—both documents and photos—to a variety of electronic devices including smart phones, tablets and computers. This technology will be particularly valuable to genealogists during extensive scanning sessions, as it will eliminate the need to physically transfer an SD card to an electronic device in order to check the quality of scanned images. Diane Miller, Flip-Pal mobile scanner genealogy expert, will be presenting "Flip-Pal Mobile Wireless Communication" in the Exhibit Hall Demonstration Area on Thursday, from 3:00–3:20 p.m.

There will also be demonstrations of the Flip-Pal mobile scanner Sketch Kit, an easy-to-use method of annotating scanned photographs and documents. Flip-Pal customer Shaun O’Hara said, “It is great to make notes on the Sketch sheet so that when I scan a photo I also have the notes that go with the photo—the dates, names, places and more. After cropping the photo I then have the scanned image and a separate image with the notes—all saved in a digital format.”

On Friday evening, Thomas MacEntee, the Flip-Pal mobile scanner ambassador, along with members of the Flip-Pal mobile scanner team and co-host DearMYRTLE will be featuring the Flip-Pal mobile scanner on the GeneaBloggers Radio Show.

Family Roots Publishing Company, a Flip-Pal mobile scanner reseller, will be offering a RootsTech Show Special at their booth, #600.

Legacy Family Tree, a Flip-Pal mobile scanner E-tailer, will have the Flip-Pal mobile scanner available for demos and online purchase in booth #104.

The Flip-Pal mobile scanner is for Memory Keepers who want to conveniently and reliably scan photos, documents and artwork—so that they can be stored digitally and then shared with family and friends. Orders of the Flip-Pal mobile scanner and accessories can be placed online at flip-pal.com, familyrootspublishing.com, legacyfamilytree.com and amazon.com.
