Sharp Launches Dynamic, Interactive Touch Screen Display

Addition to AQUOS BOARD® interactive display line fuses flexibility with a compact design to enhance interactivity in small spaces

MONTVALE, N.J., March 1, 2017

MONTVALE, N.J., March 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation (SEC) announces the launch of a new addition to its award-winning AQUOS BOARD interactive display line that takes interactive technology in small spaces to a whole new level.

The new 40″ Class (39.5″ diagonal) PN-L401C AQUOS BOARD interactive display system serves as an information interface to enhance the consumer experience in digital signage retail environments. For offices, it enables interactive collaboration and productivity in the increasingly popular “huddle space” environment.

The PN-L401C makes an impact in virtually any environment, in either landscape, portrait or face-up orientation. Its interactive display shares some great features with other models in the award-winning AQUOS BOARD line including the Sharp Pen-on-Paper™ user experience, which resists fingerprints and scratches, as well as providing an anti-glare surface. Incorporating Sharp’s own capacitive touch technology, which offers extremely precise and smooth operation, its 2 mm-tip touch pen is ideal for writing fine lines and text onscreen. It also offers Full HD (1,920 × 1,080-pixel) resolution, 10-point multi-touch functionality, advanced connectivity, and a detachable tabletop stand. Additionally, an expansion slot compatible with the Intel® Mini Open Pluggable Specification (Mini OPS) supports the addition of an optional wireless or HDBaseT™ receiver board. The PN-C401C comes bundled with SHARP Pen Software, and users can download SHARP Display Connect™ and SHARP Touch Viewer™ at no additional cost.

“The PN-L401C is the first in a new series of interactive displays from Sharp that utilize capacitive touch technology, further expanding our industry leading AQUOS BOARD product line,” said Gary Bailer, Director of Product Planning and Marketing for Pro AV Products at Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “This series targets environments that have limited space requirements for either interactive signage or interactive collaboration applications, and are suitable for virtually any industry and organization size.”

The PN-L401C AQUOS BOARD interactive display will be available for shipping in late March 2017.
