Sharp recently took the wraps off its new high-performance interactive LCD presentation solution, the PN-L601B touchscreen LCD monitor. The 60-inch class model allows users to display and mark-up digital images or scanned documents for presentation purposes via a bright screen. The model's accurate touchscreen response and original pen software gives offices or schools a tool for visually sharing interactive communication during meetings, videoconferencing, presentations, or classroom instruction, company officials said.

Sharp also said the Energy Star-qualified touch panel could be used in a wide array of digital signage applications.

The panel comes with Sharp's UV2A photo alignment and full-array LED backlight technologies for an evenly-lit, energy-efficient screen that's easy to read in most environments, regardless of ambient lighting levels, according to the company. The PN-L601B's accurate touchscreen response is enabled by Sharp's infrared detection system, which uses multiple infrared sensors to pinpoint the location of the user's finger or touch-pen movements.

"The PN-L601B is the result of combining our vast resources and experience in [LCD panel and office products]," said Steve Brauner, senior product planning manager for professional displays, in a statement. "The PN-L601B offers high performance and seamless integration into an organization's presentations and workflow."

Sharp developed pen software specifically for the PN-L601B with a user-friendly interface that enables the selection of pen colors and eraser functions with a click of the touch pen button. Once images are displayed on the screen, users can draw directly on them with a touch pen or their finger to make notes and reference marks. The resulting images, with notations, can then be saved as a file on a PC or printed via a connected Sharp multifunction product, according to the company. Connecting the PN-L601B to a Sharp MFP with color scanning function also enables documents and images to be scanned and displayed on the PN-L601B via the pen software.

The PN-L601B is certified for 24/7 operation, with a three-year onsite parts and labor limited warranty. Company officials said it will be available in November through Sharp's network of dealers, distributors, and VARs for $13,195 MSRP.
