World’s thinnest and lightest digital whiteboard launched in Japan

E Ink and Ricoh have introduced what they are claiming is the world’s thinnest and lightest portable digital whiteboard.

The dgital board has applications across medical, construction and corporate applications.

The Ricoh eWhiteboard 4200 is designed to connect remote sites to each other, and to main offices, to promote smarter workplaces through digitising traditional pen-based analog operations. The portable device is useful in settings where a power source is not readily available and can be used in multiple orientations: displayed on an easel, flat on a table or hung on the wall. Updates on the boards can be seen by remote locations through WiFi usage, making meetings collaborative, even across distance.

The Ricoh eWhiteboard 4200 is also waterproof and dust-proof. With a paper-like appearance, the device is readable in bright sunlight, making it suitable for use outdoors, for example, on a construction site. The Ricoh eWhiteboard 4200 weighs about 5.9kg and is 14.5mm thick.

Featuring a 42-in E Ink Carta digital paper display, the Ricoh eWhiteboard 4200 benefits from E Ink’s faster ink, making for a smooth handwriting experience with a sharp, high contrast appearance. Because E Ink technology is reflective rather than light-emissive, there is no light pollution, which can be disruptive, especially in a medical setting for patient communication.

At present the Ricoh eWhiteboard 4200 is only being sold in Japan.
