Sharp announces the PN-C series Aquos Board interactive display systems-- the 80-inch PN-C805B and 70-inch PN-C705B, both aimed at businesses and schools.
Both models recognise up to 10 touch points with 4-person simultaneous use, up from the 6 touch points and 2-person use offered by the previous PN-C series. The new models use direct bonding technology for a more ergonomic touch and feel, as well as a user experience as close to pen on paper as possible. This is due to the protective glass being bonded directly to the LCD panel without air gaps, minimising parallax difference.
Other intuitive features include the placement of the power on/off and input switching, backlight and freeze controls to the front bezel. A freeze frame function allows users to capture a freeze frame from a video to enable on-screen annotation, and customers can connect webcams at multiple locations for more flexible videoconferencing.
An overlay mode allows users to write onscreen annotations or graphics directly on photos, videos, PDF documents and Microsoft files. Downloadable Display Connect software allows the PN-C805B/C705B displays to share onscreen content with up to 50 devices, helping facilitate discussions and paperless meetings in both business and educational settings.
The PN-C805B and C705B ship from late January 2017.
