BenQ adds to interactive flat panels range for education
BenQ has added to its Interactive Flat Panels (IFPs) range with maintream and premium products for the education market.
Both the Mainstream and Premium panels from BenQ feature an intuitive embedded motion sensor. For a comfortable viewing experience, the IFP’s will automatically activate Flicker-Free, Anti-Glare and Low Blue Light features by detecting the movement of users close to the screen. However, the BenQ Premium panels are also equipped with a Germ-Resistant Screen which is powered by a multi-layer coating of a non-toxic enduring nano, ionic silver agent that kills germs accumulating on screen surfaces. The ionic silver’s antimicrobial feature remains effective even after thorough cleaning or long periods of use. The Premium panels also incorporate an air-quality sensor to help monitor CO2 concentration levels in classrooms and reminds teachers to adopt necessary mechanisms to keep CO2 at an ideal level.
The new IFP panels integrate the repositioned front-facing 16W speakers with a screen-length curved pen tray. The two front-facing 16W speakers create better sound transmission and bring more audio-visual enjoyment to interactive learning. The curved pen tray offers a place to store the IFP stylus. The Premium panels support a personalised multi-account management system (AMS), which allows users to directly access their personal IFP desktop, folders and major cloud storage services.
BenQ’s new range of IFPs also feature InstaQShare software, which is designed for seamless wireless presentation and collaboration. It allows for streaming of both visual and audio files, including HD quality video, plus users can mirror content from mobile devices and invite up to 16 participants. The range also supports multi-touch capability up to 20 points, allowing more students to participate in discussion and engage in activities. The panels are also equipped with EZWrite annotation software, which is designed to illustrate ideas, record notes and brainstorming. It also comes with dual pens that allow users to write or draw in different colours simultaneously, plus intelligent handwriting recognition features.
BenQ’s latest premium line of Interactive Flat Panels will be available from Q1 2019.
