Big ideas are better in the classroom and the boardroom with Sharp’s new interactive touchscreen conference board

Published: 30 Apr 2014

Sharp Australia is taking workplace collaboration and productivity to the next level with a new and innovative Interactive Touchscreen LCD Monitor. The PN-70TB3 is the newest and smartest addition to Sharp’s impressive B2B and Education portfolio of products, making it easier for people to share ideas and solve problems together.

The touchscreen monitor, ideal for the classroom or boardroom, combined with Sharp’s Pen Software and Touch Display Link 2.0, boasts a range of intuitive features that allow drawings and handwritten notes to be viewed and shared in real time. Up to 50 (Windows 8.0) and 20 (Win7) devices can connect to the interactive screen simultaneously via wireless LAN.

Mark Beard, National Marketing Manager for Sharp Corporation of Australia says the PN-70TB3 technology is the most impressive step forward for Sharp’s business and education portfolio of products.

“With the new age of business operations encouraging employees to work remotely, the interactive touchscreen monitor, combined with Touch Display Link technology, facilitates company collaboration, no matter the boundaries. Meetings are about to become more productive, collaborative and engaging across bigger groups of people, leading to better idea generation and organisation,” he said.

The 70 inch monitor with 10 point touch recognition is manufactured with a low reflective, hardened glass touch surface for improved resistance against glare, fingerprints and scratches. Boardroom and classroom interaction is improved with the screen’s ability for up to four people to write on the screen at the same time using touch pens or fingers.

The wirelessly connected touch pens boast precision pressure sensors at the tip which allow users to write with an effortless uninterrupted flow. This is coupled with a smart handwriting recognition function that converts selected handwriting into standard text.

The cleverly designed, user-friendly pen software interface provides easy access to pen settings and functions including page forward and back buttons, font colour and line thickness to easily identify different users and comments.

The Interactive Touchscreen Monitor is ideal for impromptu meetings and brainstorming sessions. Getting the ideas flowing is equally speedy, with the touch-operated onscreen menu on the front bezel allowing easy navigation to switch input sources and change volume levels.

The new front facing speakers, mounted low on the front of the LCD monitor are an added bonus for greater sound clarity.Excellent connectivity is also provided by a wealth of input/output terminals on the side and bottom of the monitor, including three HDMI ports, two D-sub ports, two DisplayPortTM terminals (one input, one output), and two touchscreen-supporting USB ports.

The Sharp PN-70TB3 (1,647 x 94 x 1,010mm), RRP $10,995.00, weighs about 59kg and is available via specialist resellers.
