Back To Work In Style With Montblanc Augmented Paper: A Fine Writing Experience For The Digital World
Montblanc introduces new colours and assortments, and adds a new Live Mode feature to its digital writing innovation
Start on Paper. Continue Anywhere. With Montblanc Augmented Paper, Montblanc pairs the enjoyment of a natural Montblanc writing experience on real paper with the efficiency of digitizing work so that it can be organized and shared from everywhere. By integrating traditional writing into the digital workflow, written notes and sketches can be seamlessly transferred from paper to a mobile device with the simple press of a button so that the content can be edited, shared with others and translated into digital text. With the introduction of the Sartorial Core Collection and the Sartorial Capsule Collection, Augmented Paper is now available in eye-popping new colours to match the style and personality of its owner.
Just in time for the return to work or school after the holidays, the new colours of the Sartorial Core Collection bring a touch of sophistication and style to the work place. The elegant leather envelope that holds the Augmented Paper notebook and special StarWalker writing instrument is crafted from Sartorial Black, Indigo or Red leather. For the creative users of Augmented Paper who like to express their style in bold colours, the all-in-one writing companion is also available in a playful line up of bright trendy new colours. The Sartorial Capsule Collection sees the arrival of rainbow-like shades including Electric Blue, Light Blue, Pink and Lucky Orange. More than an innovative writing and work solution that brings together the best of both analogue and digital worlds, Augmented Paper becomes a sleek and stylish object that displays the highest level of craftsmanship nurtured at the Montblanc Pelletteria in Florence.
The innovative technology offers best-in-class handwriting recognition in 12 languages including English, German, Russian, Spanish, Italian and Chinese, so that notes written by hand can be seamlessly transferred to a mobile device and translated into digital text for searching, editing and sharing. In addition to the enhanced productivity that comes from digitizing handwritten notes, the Augmented Paper allows for the easy organization of each document at one place without having to collect notebooks. Thousands of notes can be tagged and searched for when using the Montblanc Hub, an application that also features a note-taking function which can be used independently from the Augmented Paper and digitally integrates the writing feeling of a Montblanc pen. Files can be transferred and notes edited when the Augmented Paper is connected, the app can also be used to create digital notes when it is not connected. With the new Live Mode, it becomes possible to visualise in the app what is being written or sketched on Augmented Paper, simultaneously while sketching or writing. This can be particularly useful when connecting the smartphone or tablet to a beamer and sketch live in front of an audience on a large screen. Additionally, Ink Color gives the possibility to digitise text or sketches in different colours, regardless of the colour used on paper.
Augmented Paper bridges the online and offline worlds with a simple and highly functional product that gives its owners the freedom to unleash their creativity by using a writing instrument and paper, rather than being constrained to only express thoughts and ideas with mouse and keyboard. Independence is one of the key benefits of the organizer thanks to the long battery life that allows up to 8 hours of continuous use and up to a week of regular work use offering the ability to store of up to 100 pages in its internal storage. Unlike a tablet or laptop that can only be accessed when the battery is charged, the digital note serves as a backup to the paper and vice versa. It makes an ideal travel companion as the small form factor makes work easy in more constrained spaces whether on a plane or on a train, without the sounds and distractions of constant notifications.
Independence, performance and organization: through the addition of technology, this high performance work companion delivers a distinctive Montblanc writing experience while giving any professional or creative access to all of his or her notes and sketches, easily and conveniently stored within one mobile app. Montblanc Augmented Paper features a leather envelope in different colours and textures that includes the electronic digitizer, a StarWalker writing instrument, a notebook with lined paper, a USB cable to charge the device, 3 ballpoint refills and tweezers to exchange the refills.
Montblanc Augmented Paper Sartorial Core and Sartorial Capsule Collection are available from September 2017 in Montblanc boutiques worldwide and online.
