Sharp adds 65-in Big Pad with wireless option
Sharp has launched the BIG PAD PN-65SC1, its latest large format interactive display with a Mini Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) Expansion Slot.
Developed with Intel, the Mini OPS slot means the PN-65SC1 has the capability to be upgraded by 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 additional cables.
Sharp’s 10-point multi-touch technology gives users a highly-responsive touch experience and lets up to four people write on the screen. 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 new feature 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.
65-in 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.
