Ricoh Introduces New Portable Whiteboards Projectors and Video Conferencing System
Ricoh Americas has unveiled a new interactive whiteboard, a digital projector that works with walls and other fixed surfaces, and a video conferencing system as part of a slate of offerings released at the recent InfoComm AV show.
The new whiteboard, the D5500, features a 55-inch diagonal HD screen. Users can also view the information via a virtual private network using PCs, tablets, smartphones, or up to four of the whiteboards connected together across a school.
The ultra short throw digital projector, the PJ WX4141NI, functions almost like a whiteboard itself and features the ability to make walls and fixed physical whiteboards interactive. Presenters can display, underline, highlight, annotate, capture, and share projected image with an electronic markup pen.
By combining the company’s unified communication system, the P3000, with the ultra short throw projector, schools can create their own portable video conferencing system, which can be moved from room to room as needed.
Additional releases included a mobile projector-based digital signage solution that can display larger images than flat screen displays and new 4,500 and 5,000 lumen high-end projectors for larger rooms and lecture halls.
