BenQ UK has today (November 26) announced it has enhanced its full line of Interactive Flat Panels (IFPs) targeted specifically at the education market.
The new Mainstream and Premium solutions are optimised with a flexible user interface and classroom-ready solutions to support schools by bringing a truly healthy and collaborative learning experience into their classrooms.
Both the Mainstream and Premium panels include a smart eye-care solution with an intuitive embedded motion sensor and will automatically activate Flicker-Free, Anti-Glare and Low Blue Light features by detecting the movement of users close to the screen.
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. This thoughtful design ensures students can remain highly productive during class, whilst enjoying a much healthier learning environment.
The new IFP panels integrate the repositioned front-facing audio 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 useful place to store the IFP stylus and other tools that help enrich presentations without interruption. Furthermore, the BenQ 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 understands the value of ergonomics and has introduced a new launcher platform for the Premium panels with a spotlight/laser pointer, to help teachers build a dynamic learning environment with ease.
BenQ’s new range of IFPs also feature InstaQShare software, which is designed for wireless presentation and collaboration. It allows for smooth 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.
