According to a recent NEI-funded study, children’s eyes absorb more blue light than adults from digital device screens. Over time, this can cause digital eyestrain which leads to sore or irritated eyes and difficulty focusing—bad for classroom settings.
To minimize this and other health effects, BenQ has developed a line of interactive flat panels (IFPs). The company’s premium RP Series IFPs prioritize healthy technology use with innovative capabilities that minimize the risks that are associated with increased use of other screen technology along with features that allow educators to create easily a personalized and engaging collaboration experience. The 4K UHD IFP lineup includes the 65″ RP6501K, 75″ RP7501K and 86″ RP8601K.
“Schools need purpose-built tools that will support students in new innovative ways and help them achieve their learning objectives,” says Bob Wudeck, senior director, business, education, and Cinepro solutions at BenQ America Corp.
Putting health first, the IFPs include an anti-glare, bacteria-resistant screen that kills most germs accumulating on screen surfaces and prevent cross-infection or epidemic in classrooms; a CO2 air-quality sensor that monitors the CO2 concentration level in classrooms; and BenQ’s Smart Eye-Care technology, which is certified to remove the blue light and flicker that can cause eye strain and CVS-related eye problems. Capable of being voice and remote controlled, the cloud-enabled IFPs are built around a thoughtful platform that makes the screen an intuitive hub where teachers and students can share ideas, notes and opinions; make annotations on screen captures from any app, video, website, document or image and from any device; and more.
Also designed for classroom’s BenQ’s new InstaShow WDC20 wireless presentation system allows multiple presenters to lead from any device. The plug-and-play operation requires no driver installation and is compatible with any OS or hardware platform, making it simple to use. Furthering support, BenQ features Open Pluggable Specification (OPS), which helps schools standardize the design and development of their devices and pluggable media players. Intel created OPS to simplify device installation, usage, maintenance and upgrades with a scalable architecture that allows any display to network easily with other equipment.
