BenQ Will Display New InstaShow WDC20E Wireless Presentation System, World’s Healthiest Cloud-Based IFP, and Budget-Friendly BlueCore Laser Projectors
COSTA MESA, Calif. — Jan. 21, 2021 — BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display and collaboration solutions, will show how it’s helping schools and educators build the best remote and hybrid-ready classrooms at the Future of Education Technology Conference (FETC) 2021, hosted online Jan. 26-29. During the virtual conference, the company will unveil the latest addition to its InstaShow™ wireless presentation system, the WDC20E — specifically designed and priced for the education market, alongside the classroom-ready, cloud-based RP02 Series interactive flat panel (IFP) and the LU/LH Series BlueCore laser classroom projectors.
“Having the right technology to support teachers and students has never been more vital than it is today,” said Bob Wudeck, senior director of business development at BenQ America Corp. “At FETC, educators will see our broad portfolio of classroom solutions that help overcome today’s challenges while keeping learning front and center. We’ll also introduce the first wireless presentation system purpose-built for the classroom that upholds the rigid security requirements of the most demanding corporate and government applications.”
Tap to Teach with a Wireless Presentation System Made for Education
At a tap of a button, BenQ’s InstaShow WDC20E education wireless presentation system (WPS) enables intuitive classroom-wide screen sharing to the room’s IFP, display, or projector. It features all the security and user benefits of the award-winning InstaShow family in a sleek, affordable design. Retailing for just $699, the network-free, software-free classroom collaboration solution supports video streams up to 4K resolution via the latest wireless 802.11ac standards and is able to split the screen among four devices — whether it’s a Google Chromebook, notebook, phone, tablet, microscope, or any device with an HDMI out port. It’s capable of connecting up to 32 student devices or input sources at a time — the highest of any WPS, creating an immersive, collaborative learning opportunity. It’s also the first all-hardware, plug-and-play WPS designed to ensure data and content privacy using advanced 128-bit algorithms. Teachers simply plug the InstaShow button into their device and tap to teach and share content. Classrooms equipped with IFPs will benefit from the Touch Back feature, which allows users to control and annotate their presentations originating from Windows computers directly from an IFP. In addition, the split-screen mode can be used to control up to four laptops. Annotations made on the touchscreen can be displayed and saved on the laptop too for a seamless content pipeline that students can refer back to later.
Stay Healthy While Collaborating
BenQ’s RP02 Series Education 4K UHD interactive flat panels (IFP) are the world’s only display solution to feature a certified antimicrobial touchscreen to keep in-class use germ-free as well as providing easy-to-use cloud-based collaboration tools that ensure students are engaged and successful. Integrated with EZWrite 5.0, the leading cloud-based annotation solution, the IFPs allow teachers to seamlessly transition to collaboration-rich remote and social distanced lessons that inspire and engage students. The cloud whiteboard capabilities allow teachers as well as students to interact with the screen from their Chromebook, Surface, Mac or any mobile device. They can write on top of any app, video, website, document, or image and save them to their chosen cloud platform, including Google Classroom and Dropbox right from the screen. The screen also includes the InstaShare wireless collaboration solution to smoothly stream visual or audio files and full HD videos as well as wirelessly mirror any user’s laptops, Chromebooks, or mobile devices. It boasts an easy-to-access front I/O port with USB-C and NFC reader, an 8-array microphone with noise cancellation for clear audio pick up and recording, as well as a 15W subwoofer base.
Affordably Embrace the Multiscreen Classroom Trend
As research emerges that remote classrooms require multiple screens in the room to enable successful online learning, BenQ is helping schools do so with projectors that are inexpensive, unceasingly bright, maintenance-free, and easy to install. At the heart of BenQ’s 4,000-ANSI-lumen LU710 (WUXGA) and LH710 (1080p) and the 5,000-ANSI-lumen LU930 (WUXGA) and LH930 (1080p) is the renowned BlueCore IP5X-certified, dustproof, filter-free laser engine. BenQ’s high-output laser source guarantees 20,000 hours of maintenance-free operation, which is equivalent to over 10 lamp replacements (based on the average brightness cutoff of typical long-life lamps). Its hermetically sealed DLP chip resists heat for over 100,000 hours without degradation. In addition, the engine has earned an international dustproof protection rating of IP5X — a certification given to the most popular and rigorously tested mobile and smart watch technology available today — ensuring dust doesn’t damage the projector. Complementing the series’ brightness is Rec. 709 color coverage and BenQ’s new LumiExpert™ technology, which automatically detects the ambient light conditions of the room and adjusts the projector’s brightness to maximize clarity and comfort.
