The new Flip 2 takes collaboration to the next level
Samsung Electronics America, Inc. has announced the Samsung Flip 2 digital interactive display, the newest addition to the Flip lineup, transforming the traditional pen and paper collaboration into a digital experience. Users’ presentations, notes and visuals are taken to the next level with the touch of an ultra-smooth digital pen and intuitive user interface. Tailored to meet display demands in corporate, education, retail, sports and hospitality, the Flip 2 helps users bring ideas to life by allowing them to write, design and share their ideas dynamically and digitally.
“Today’s workers require more user-friendly, flexible and innovative technologies to create their best work life,” said Harry Patz, Senior Vice President and General Manager, B2B Enterprise Display Division, Samsung Electronics America. “The new Samsung Flip 2 offers enhanced collaboration capabilities to foster creativity and increase productivity for teams, allowing them to work faster, smarter and better.”
Available in two sizes, 55 and 65 inches, both models offer unmatched collaborative features in an ergonomic and aesthetic design. The 55-inch model offers a hinge assembly structure and wheels for an efficient, portable solution that can transform any location into a huddle room, adding flexibility for businesses with limited conference space. With a slim and light stand, the Flip 2 is simple to work with and allows for multiple units to be nested when not in use. The 65-inch model provides a larger screen which can be used as the main display in a meeting room, while the No Gap Wall mount removes unnecessary space between the display and the wall, allowing for easy and clean installation.
The Flip 2 is optimized for many applications, including product and fashion design, sports training and smaller huddle spaces in corporate offices.
Ideal for education, the Flip 2 can be deployed across school campuses as a teaching tool for grades K-12 as well as higher education. By leveraging the Flip 2, teachers can creatively engage students in lessons and encourage participation in the classroom. Teachers can share content and present flexibly, smoothly and freely with the Flip 2’s intuitive user interface, flexible input and output options and advanced mobile compatibility, in turn simplifying learning for their students.
The Flip 2’s intuitive, user-friendly menu simplifies navigation and saves time. With the quick finder feature, users can preview content and make instant changes directly on the screen. By simply clicking the note layer button, users enjoy smooth writing anytime, anywhere on any content displayed without affecting work behind the original layer. Flip users can also access up to 20 pages of writing space with embedded search functionalities available to instantly direct participants to specific content. This continuous, rolling stream eliminates lost time and interruptions that often result from searching through multiple sheets of paper or lines of notes to locate a specific detail.
Pen & Paper Experience Goes Digital
Draw, write and inspire new ideas with Pen mode and Brush mode. The Flip 2 provides smooth and familiar pen-to-paper-like writing in a variety of colors, styles and widths, while Brush mode allows users to create art at the stroke of a brush in watercolor and oil painting modes. Up to four people can write simultaneously and erase drawings with a finger or palm swipe, enabling teams to collaborate in real-time. Each user can customize his or her own writing style, size and color, with each notation made clear and visible by viewer-friendly UHD resolution.
Convenient Compatibility & Management
Samsung Flip 2 gives users the ability to open Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Excel and PDF files directly with a built-in document viewer, ensuring easy access, regardless of the content source. The Flip 2 can also be leveraged as a calendar, scheduler, note or checklist board, enabling simplified meeting scheduling. With its reinforced six-digit lock system, each in-office team is able to safeguard sensitive content, lock the display and remove critical content from view, ensuring meeting information is kept secure.
Each Flip 2 display can configure to portrait or landscape orientations to suit unique meeting needs. When coupled with its height-adjustable stand, the Flip 2 also maximizes available writing space at users’ preferred positions. Should a meeting require more centralized, roundtable-style discussion, users can remove and connect the Flip 2 display to a compatible wall mount.
Users can project content on the Flip 2 to another large digital display in real-time, using a Wi-Fi Direct or HDMI out connection. The Flip 2 display can even be shared while connected to a personal device, ideal for large meeting environments. USB, HDMI, NFC and wireless connection capabilities provide interactive content visibility, notation and sharing. Following any meeting, users can distribute recaps to all attendees and colleagues, removing the time frustration traditionally associated with handwritten meeting notes. Important conversations and content are stored within the Flip 2 in real-time, easily shareable across mobile and digital channels.
Samsung Flip products are available to global professional users to purchase through online and brick-and-mortar furniture retailers, as well as traditional professional B2B display channels.
