SHARP LAUNCHES NEW 65” BIG PAD WITH WIRELESS OPTION
London, 7 August 2017 – Sharp today launches the BIG PAD PN-65SC1, its latest large format interactive display with a Mini Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) Expansion Slot. The new 65-inch entry-level model combines flexibility and connectivity with the functionality of the BIG PAD range to make collaboration in classrooms and meetings easier.
Developed with Intel, the Mini OPS slot means the PN-65SC1 has the capability to be upgraded by simply inserting an optional module into the back of the monitor. For example, the Wireless module allows up to four users to simultaneously display content from a computer, smartphone or tablet, without the hassle of additional cables.
Sharp’s range of BIG PAD interactive displays are designed to be easy to use, lesson-ready within seconds, and feel natural to write on. Using a variety of screen technologies Sharp has created a Pen-on-Paper feeling when using its displays, to offer a comfortable, familiar experience that inspires confidence and encourages teachers and presenters to make the most of the technology.
Sharp’s 10-point multi-touch technology gives users a highly-responsive touch experience and lets up to four people write on the screen and contribute ideas at the same time. A handwriting recognition function, which converts onscreen handwriting into standard text, also makes it easier to use and share notes from a lesson or brainstorm.
A popular feature available on the PN-65SC1 is the addition of a privacy button on the bezel, which mean users can immediately freeze or hide content on a display. In a classroom environment this can help teachers to deliver lessons without interruptions, so they can freeze their display while they continue to work on a connected device or prepare the content they plan to show next.
Christopher Parker, Senior Product Manager, Visual Solutions, Sharp Europe, said: “Our BIG PAD interactive displays are known for their best in class touch performance and unparalleled reliability. The addition of the Mini OPS expansion slot means the PN-65SC1 can offer all of the collaboration benefits of an interactive display, plus the flexibility to keep pace with future changes to the teaching or working environment.”
65” is a new size option for BIG PAD and has been added to the range to meet demand from schools, education establishments and corporate training organisations who are moving towards larger screens for better engagement.
The BIG PAD PN-65SC1 is available to purchase through Sharp and its partners now. For more information please visit www.sharp.no/visualsolutions
