Remember the feeling of chalk dust on your hands after writing on a chalkboard? Later came the less-messy whiteboards with dry-erase markers. However, it didn’t make classrooms or business meetings any more exciting.
Today, interactive display systems are helping teachers and meeting attendees keep everyone’s attention through Internet, video, Microsoft Office applications and more. Interactive display systems motivate and add collaboration. Multiple people can write on the screens at the same time. Students and businesspeople can use laptops, tablets and smartphones to view the same content as on the board.
Sharp has a line of AQUOS BOARD interactive display systems to enhance communication in the classroom or meeting room. One feature that many find particularly fascinating is handwriting recognition. When you write by hand on the board, it gets automatically converted to a typed font! You can also manipulate images on the screen.
When emphasizing an object, it’s more impressive to draw a circle around it than to use a laser pen. Yes, laser pens are passé now, unless you’re a cat. To erase, simply wipe with your hand without any chalk or marker residue. Then save what’s on the screen and send it to your colleagues or students.
Sharp’s original capacitive touch technology makes the interface so responsive that users feel like they are writing on a real whiteboard. Only intentional input from fingers and touch pens appear on the edge-to-edge glass display. This technology also achieves high sensitivity and precision by reducing the noise level to one-eighth that of conventional models.
Up to four people can write on the PN-L803C display at the same time with a finger or touch pen and it recognizes 10 touch points. Each pen boasts a thin 3.5 mm tip that makes it easier to add detailed notes that remain legible when printed.
This model also has multi-board function. Up to three PN-L803C displays can be connected and used to display sequential pages to be navigated by swiping sideways. Up to 50 mobile devices can be wirelessly connected to the PN-L803C display through Touch Display Link 2.0 software for paperless meetings.
When connected to a compatible Sharp MFP (multifunctional printer), scanned documents and color images can be shown on the PN-L803C display. For added convenience, image data shown onscreen, including notations, can be saved to a PC or sent directly to an MFP for printout. Sharp has many AQUOS BOARD display models to choose from, offering you the size and features needed. You can get more information on the line up here.
