BenQ animates meetings with new interactive panels
The RP Series now features 65”, 70” and 75” screen models
BenQ has expanded its RP Series of Interactive Flat Panels (IFP) for schools and offices.
The new additions to the RP series introduces BenQ’s 20-point multi-touch support, allowing more people to participate at one time.
The panels are SGS-certified, anti-glare/anti-microbial and also include an ionic silver agent that can kill most bacteria on contact, the company says. BenQ refers to this feature as “anti-germ (AG+) coating”, ideal for a meeting room environment. Also included in the new RP Series is EZwrite 3.0, BenQ’s annotation app designed to facilitate interactive sessions. When combined with the NFC Pen – an NFC-enabled stylus – annotations turn into a simple affair.
“BenQ’s new RP Series is designed to tap into dynamic possibilities for idea sharing, whether in the classroom or meeting room,” said Manish Bakshi, managing director Middle East & Turkey, BenQ. “With the new RP Series, true collaborative teamwork is created. BenQ has combined its leading-edge display technology with robust, intuitive software to achieve a touch-enhanced, smooth, interactive experience,” he added.
EZWrite 3.0, QTouch, NFCPen and InstaShow
Tapping the NFCPen on the screen’s NFC sensor activates EZwrite 3.0 to begin writing process. Participants can make notes with a variety of coloured pencils, highlighters and backgrounds. EZwrite’s floating on-screen toolbar allows a change to the pen colour or an instant capture of a screenshot.
Users can also add BenQ’s optional QTouch software to enhance the interactive experience. QTouch has an expanded interface that allows more input options. QTouch is Windows-compatible and supports all major video file formats, as well as web page inputs.
InstaShow is BenQ’s presentation system that connects a user’s computer to a central display or projector wirelessly. With the touch of a button, the meeting collaboration system allows up to eight participants to share their laptop on a connected projector. It is an all-hardware solution that plugs into the source laptop and starts working. It bypasses the steps of configuring IP addresses, driver installation, app execution, setting selection, and so forth, to enable teams to collaborate faster.
Other product features include:
- All new models support Full HD resolution. (4K Ultra-High-Definition resolution available on model RP750K)
- Front I/O port, USB 3.0, HDMI and microphone ports are all located on the front panel, making it easy for speakers to plug in peripheral devices.
- Hot keys are provided for volume and input source control, as well as functions that can help direct participants’ attention back to the speaker, such as Blank & Freeze.
