BenQ’s Interactive Displays and InstaShow Wireless Presentation System Prioritize Health and Safety Along With Intuitive Collaboration, Even When Social Distancing
COSTA MESA, Calif. — Aug. 31, 2021 — BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, is focused on helping schools and businesses to safely reopen with a lineup of interactive displays and wireless presentation systems (WPS) with built-in health and collaboration features. The company’s interactive displays boast the world’s most germ-resistant screen; low-blue-light, flicker-free, and anti-glare features to protect eyes during prolonged screen use; air quality sensors that automatically detect and inform users whenever air quality becomes a problem; and InstaShare screen mirroring capabilities that encourage social distancing. The affordable and cyber-secure InstaShow WPS allows organizations to utilize the existing display or projector in the room for collaboration while supporting social distancing measures.
“BenQ is a leading medical technology solutions manufacturer, and for years, we’ve leveraged the research that has gone into developing those solutions within our education and business products,” said Bob Wudeck, senior director of business development at BenQ America Corp. “When we first created our interactive displays over nine years ago, limiting the spread of germs, protecting eyes from digital strain, and ensuring good air quality were all part of our mission to create healthy learning and work environments. While we never could have predicted the need for social distancing, our screen presentation systems — InstaShow and InstaShare — were built to optimize seamless collaboration from anywhere in the room, freeing organizations from the restraints of complex and expensive cabling systems.”
Healthy, Touch-Based Collaboration
BenQ’s interactive displays were designed to provide users with a worry-free, healthy, and intuitive presentation and collaboration experience with a combination of touch, eye, and air features. The displays’ TÜV- and SIAA-certified, germ-resistant, 20-point multitouch screen kills most germs accumulating on the screen and prevents cross-infection, even after prolonged use. They also feature BenQ’s Smart EyeCare technology, which is a combination of innovations that includes flicker-free, low-blue-light, and anti-glare features that protect users’ eyes without glasses or other aids. Because poor air quality and high CO2 levels can hamper learning and productivity, BenQ engineered these features right into the display. The built-in air sensor eliminates the need to purchase or install expensive stand-alone air sensors that are now widely available. Leveraging BenQ’s leadership in WPS, the series comes integrated with InstaShare software so users can collaborate and stream full-HD videos, audio, images, and text as well as mirror and control content from different devices and platforms, including PCs and mobile devices, while maintaining social distancing protocols in the room. In addition to these health and safety features, the displays include BenQ’s EZWrite, the company’s leading annotation solution. Teachers, students, and meeting participants can interact in real time, regardless of location. It promotes individual creativity, teamwork, and flexibility, all while enabling hybrid learning and work-from-home structures. Teachers can even swipe a key card or ID badge to quickly access their settings and cloud accounts from any IFP.
Tap to Safely Present From Anywhere in the Room
BenQ’s InstaShow wireless presentation family allows organizations to affordably equip classrooms and meeting rooms with wireless collaboration and screen sharing capabilities without any wiring. At the click of a button, users can present from anywhere in the room. Unlike traditional HDMI-based cabling systems — which cost organizations thousands per room to install and configure — users don’t have to share or disinfect a single cable. Instead, they plug the InstaShow button device into their laptop and tap to present. There’s no software to install or configure and no network logins, adhering to best practices for preventing the increasing cybersecurity threats to schools and businesses. It supports video streams up to 4K resolution via the latest wireless 802.11ac standards and can split the screen among four devices — whether it’s a Google Chromebook, notebook, phone, tablet, microscope, or any other device with an HDMI out port. What’s more, with the ability to connect up to 32 devices or input sources at a time — the highest of any WPS — no student is left out of collaborative learning opportunities. It’s also the first all-hardware, plug-and-play WPS designed to ensure data and content privacy using advanced 128-bit algorithms. For rooms equipped with interactive displays, the Touch Back feature allows users to control and annotate their presentations originating from Windows computers directly from the display. In addition, the split-screen mode can be used to control up to four laptops. The InstaShow family includes WDC20E, which is affordably priced for education, and the InstaShow S WDC20 for corporate applications.
