BenQ has launched the next generation of RM Series Interactive Flat Panels for primary, secondary and further education institutions.
Available in four sizes: 55in (RM5502K), 65in (RM6502K), 75in (RM7502K) and 86in (RM8602K); new features include BenQ’s exclusive EZWrite 5.0 software, AMS Cloud Storage, Instashare collaboration software, 4K Android OS, voice control and compatibility with BenQ’s collaboration InstaShow WDC20 device.
Key to the first RM Series was its combination of durable hardware with intuitive user-friendly software, while putting the user’s well-being at the forefront of its design, which BenQ claims it has continued into its latest offering.
Dedicated to encouraging the well-being of its users and providing a more comfortable viewing experience, BenQ incorporates its TÜV-certified Low Blue Light and Flicker-Free technologies into the screens, protecting students’ eyes from blue light emissions and flicker that may cause adverse health effects.
Enabling a variety of teaching styles and users of all levels of technology competency, the inclusivity of the BenQ’s own EZWrite 5.0 software and floating toolbar aids teachers with quick access to annotation tools, capture screen grabs, and save and share notes.
Chris Goff, head of education technology and Pro AV, commented: “The latest advancement to our RM Series demonstrates BenQ’s commitment to developing technology specifically designed for education. Many of the new features in this latest version are in response to what our users have requested. We’re listening to what requirements teachers need in order to complement teaching styles and classroom necessities, while also supporting school IT infrastructure with future-proofed technology.”
Designed to be intuitive and flexible, the cloud features make it easy for teachers to save files to their personal cloud storage and access for future lessons from any device. A cross-platform solution, personal devices on different operating systems are compatible without excluding individuals from contributing in group sessions.
Compatibility with BenQ’s collaboration tools, the Instashare app and InstaShow WDC20, a plug-and-play device, enables up to nine devices to be sharing content directly to the screen at once. Voice and remote controls provide extra flexibility for teachers to operate the display from a distance.
