Collaboration, corporate and digital signage: BenQ has brought to ISE 2019 confirmations and news for different product lines and different applications.
Exploring BenQ’s stand at ISE 2019 with Alessandra Ollano, BenQ Italy’s B2B Key Account Manager, we started from the news. So, here are the upgrades of InstaShow WDC10, a plug-and-play solution without software that allows you to make presentations with any device, compatible with any operating system or hardware platform. The new version is called WDC 10C (available from April) and, in the words of Alessandra Ollano, “has the same receiver as the WDC 10 but instead of HDMI and USB will have only one USB-C connector, which carries data, video, audio and power.
The new WDC 20 is expected to be released by the end of 2019, “a receiver that will allow the division of the screen into four images, thus opening a real collaboration, no more conversations only between two people. It will also be possible to connect via Airplay or QR Code. But” – specifies Alessandra Ollano – “these are not products that exclude their previous versions. They will all remain in our list, covering different needs.”
Among the other innovations presented in Amsterdam, the most interesting is the line of stretch monitors for retail. The series had just two models: with the addition of two more, and a fifth that will come soon, this category of products now offers formats ranging from 24” to 38”, for very thin monitors that come up at 1000 nits of brightness.
Less bright, but equally fascinating models for digital signage in interiors, including the colossal 86” 4K non-touch, currently the top of the range. “We are inserting this monitor into many projects”, confirms Alessandra Ollano. “This is an indoor model, with a brightness of 450 nits, which makes it perfectly suitable even in very bright environments.” BenQ’s stretch and smart signage displays are also equipped with CMS X-Sign which can be used on multiple screens, broadcast 4K content and include details such as product information, interactive content, catalogs and menus.
Finally, also deserves a mention the new interactive whiteboard, more focused on the university or corporate world than the previous model, which was more purely educational. Equipped with a CO2 sensor and proximity sensor, as well as a more elaborate software, it’s a more complete product. The CO2 sensor is particularly useful for small rooms, such as the company meeting rooms, where it is able to indicate, with the simple coloring from green to red of four lights, the CO2 concentration. Too high, it can be an objective impediment to work, which can be eliminated by simply ventilating the room.
The stand, very rich, was then completed by the whole range of laser projectors with fixed and interchangeable optics, with brightness up to 10.000 lumens.
So many adaptations, so many news by BenQ, with a final surprise: designed for G Suite customers, the new Google Jamboard (currently not available in Italy), a 55-inch digital collaborative blackboard that works connected to the cloud and which BenQ is an exclusive channel partner.
