BenQ Enables K-12 Schools to Deliver Engaging, Collaborative Classes With World’s Healthiest Cloud-Based IFPs
COSTA MESA, Calif. — Nov. 19, 2020 — BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display and collaboration solutions, is helping schools worldwide solve the barriers to in-class, hybrid, and full-remote learning. The chosen solution of private and public schools, 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 safe as well as easy-to-use cloud-based collaboration tools that ensure students are engaged and successful.
“Hybrid and remote learning during COVID-19 has sped up technological evolution and adaptation — almost overnight,” said Bob Wudeck, senior director of business development at BenQ America Corp. “For almost 10 years, schools all over the world have adopted our germ-resistant IFPs to solve challenges and prepare for the future of learning. Now, as they transition to new learning approaches, these same displays can serve all students.”
Preferred IFP By Public and Private Schools
BenQ’s award-winning education IFPs have been selected by K-12 private and public schools around the globe, including Dubai English Speaking School in Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School in Australia; British International School Riyadh (BISR) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Menahga Public School District in Minnesota, U.S; Kankakee and Benjamin School Districts in Illinois, U.S; Our Lady of Mount Carmel and St. Stephen Schools in Maryland, U.S; Castleberry and Del Valle Independent School Districts in Texas, U.S; and Wawasee and Lafayette Public School Districts in Indiana, U.S; among many others.
Engineered with healthy collaboration in mind, the IFPs’ TÜV- and SIAA-certified germ-resistant 20-point multitouch screen kills most germs accumulating on the screen and prevents cross-infection even after prolonged use. The IFPs also feature BenQ’s Smart EyeCare solution, which is a combination of innovations that includes Flicker-Free, Low Blue Light, and antiglare features that protect users’ eyes without glasses or other aids. Because high-quality audio is essential to remote learning, the RP02 is also equipped with two15W subwoofers and eight-array microphones with embedded noise cancellation to clearly capture instruction for live and recorded sessions. For ease of connectivity, there are convenient front I/O ports with USB-C as well as an NFC reader, which allows instructors to swipe a key card or ID badge to quickly access their settings and cloud accounts from any IFP.
Remote-Ready Instruction and Collaboration
BenQ education IFPs’ built-in, user-friendly tools are designed to foster endless class collaboration for remote, STEAM, and project-based learning models. 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. From EZWrite’s built-in Floating Tool, teachers can quickly select from versatile options to make presentations and content more interesting. They can write on top of any app, video, website, document, or image. Whether using Windows, Mac, Chrome, or Android, a teacher can take notes on top of any content and save them to their chosen cloud platform, including Google Classroom and Dropbox. The screen capture capability lets users capture all — or just part — of the screen.
In addition, the InstaShare wireless collaboration solution smoothly streams visual or audio files and full HD videos as well as wirelessly mirrors any users’ laptops, Chromebooks, or mobile devices. With InstaShare, teachers can present without connecting to HDMI video cables, giving them the opportunity to work from anywhere in the room or even remotely. Up to 16 users can connect to InstaShare at a time, with up to four sharing the screen simultaneously and helping to adhere to social distance best practices. When used in conjunction with the BenQ IFP, they can also access and control their laptops directly from the IFP screen with two-way touch control.
