BenQ Puts Teachers Front and Center at TCEA 2023

BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, plans to eliminate digital integration hurdles in the classroom with its teacher-focused smart boards at the TCEA Convention and Expo, Jan. 31-Feb. 2 in San Antonio. In booth 1171, BenQ will demonstrate the ease and intuitiveness of its germ-resistant BenQ Board RM03 and RP03 Series, highlighting its Tap and Teach technology, secure single sign-on, EZWrite software, InstaShare wireless screen sharing features, and more. BenQ will also showcase its family of BlueCore laser education projectors and InstaShow WDC20E education wireless presentation system (WPS).

“Step into the classroom and you’ll see teachers — true heroes — hard at work educating students in a multitude of ways,” said Bob Wudeck, senior director of business development at BenQ America Corp. “At BenQ, we’re doing our part to aid teachers as they shape the future of learning with solutions that resolve challenges and make it even easier for them to teach, manage the classroom, and foster student comprehension, collaboration, and engagement. At TCEA, we will show how any teacher can get started in minutes using our BenQ Boards and feel more confident as technology leaders.”

Simple From the StartEducation technology is only as beneficial as its ability to integrate with the resources and applications that are already being used in the classroom. What’s more, teachers must be able to quickly understand and leverage technology capabilities and features in order to improve student comprehension, collaboration, and engagement. The germ-resistant BenQ Boards are purpose-built for teachers so that they can provide exciting learning opportunities, starting from the moment they sign on. In 2019, BenQ introduced the world’s first classroom display that uses a combination of NFC technology (same as Apple Pay) and cloud-based data to transform how teachers and IT departments use and manage interactive displays. For any district looking to improve classroom efficiency and security, BenQ Board Tap and Teach technology provides instant teacher personalization that redeems lost classroom time, secure and seamless access to cloud-based lessons and content that they’re already using, and effortless integration with Active Directory infrastructure for IT management.

All interactive displays in BenQ’s education portfolio feature a 4K UHD screen with ClassroomCare, a proprietary line of health-centric technologies that includes the industry’s only germ-resistant screens, air-quality sensors, and new Eyesafe® technology for reducing blue light emissions — as well as flicker-free and anti-glare to reduce eye strain and create a comfortable viewing experience. Displays have up to 40 points of simultaneous touch recognition with no lag, InstaShare to wirelessly present to the screen from anywhere, instant and secure access to network files and leading cloud-based applications. Additionally, they feature BenQ’s EZWrite 6 license-free annotation and whiteboard software, front-accessible I/Os including USB-C, built-in speakers and microphones, and centralized management and signage features for technology administrators. With BenQ Boards, educators can be as efficient and effective on the displays as they are on PCs, with features such as the ability to run two applications side by side and an optional slot-in PC to expand onboard functions even further.

Smart Projectors With a Focus on Color AccuracyBenQ will showcase its lineup of projectors, which includes ultra-short-throw, short-throw, and interactive models to suit any classroom need. As research emerges that remote classrooms require multiple screens in the room to enable successful online learning, BenQ is helping schools do so with projectors that are affordable, unceasingly bright, maintenance-free, and easy to install.

Just Tap and TeachWith the InstaShow WDC20E education WPS, teachers simply tap and teach — sharing their screen to the classroom’s smartboards or projectors at the touch of a button. The affordable WDC20E is a smart solution for classroom collaboration. Its network-free, software-free, and app-free design makes it easy to use. It supports video streams up to 4K resolution via the latest wireless 802.11ac standards and can split the screen among four devices — whether it’s a Google Chromebook, notebook, phone, tablet, microscope, or any device with an HDMI out port. Moreover, with the ability to connect up to 32 devices or input sources at a time — the highest of any WPS — no student is left out of collaborative learning opportunities. It’s also the first all-hardware, plug-and-play WPS designed to ensure data and content privacy using advanced 128-bit algorithms. Available in models even for the latest USB-C-enabled laptops and notebooks, teachers simply plug the InstaShow button into their device and tap to share content. Classrooms equipped with interactive displays will benefit from the Touch Back feature, which allows users to control and annotate their presentations originating from Windows computers directly from the display. In addition, the split-screen mode can be used to control up to four laptops. Annotations made on the touch screen can also be displayed and saved on the laptop for a seamless content pipeline that students can refer to later.
