BenQ Expands Family of Education Smart Boards With New Health-Centric BenQBoard RM03 Series
BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, today announced the release of its new BenQBoard RM03 Series 4K UHD interactive displays for hybrid classrooms and distance learning. The 65″ RM6503, 75″ RM7503, and the 86″ RM8603 smart boards are designed to be an intuitive learning hub that allows teachers to start, manage, and create lessons directly from the display. They feature BenQ’s health-centric ClassroomCare® technology that includes the industry’s only antimicrobial touchscreen and pens to help prevent the spread of germs, EZWrite 6 intuitive collaboration software, InstaShare 2 wireless screen sharing, and IT and administration management tools such as AMS, X-Sign Broadcast digital signage software, and OTA updates.
“We regard the classroom display as the central device in the room where everything should happen — from the access and creation of teacher presentations to student collaboration and sharing to school alerts,” said Bob Wudeck, senior director of business development at BenQ America Corp. “For more than a decade we have built BenQBoards based on the feedback of teachers, IT staff, and administrators with technology that sets them apart from the most expensive interactive displays on the market. The RM03 Series is the result of that continuous commitment, delivering the classroom’s most robust, intuitive, and feature-rich display yet at a price that allows schools to complete upgrades much faster than projected.”
A Display That Protects the Entire Class
The BenQBoard RM03 Series helps to fight disease transmission in the classroom with germ-resistant screens and pens. For years BenQ has prioritized safe screen use. That’s why all BenQBoards have touchscreens as well as pens coated with a nano-ionic silver formula that kills 99.9% of common germs after contact. Also part of ClassroomCare technologies, they come with low blue light and flicker-free technology for reduced eye strain and a comfortable viewing experience. Anti-glare screens additionally ensure that display content is seen clearly, even on hybrid and remote calls.
Built for In-Class, Hybrid, and Distance Learning
Technology should never stand in the way of learning. The BenQBoard RM03 Series fosters collaborative learning with an intuitive smart board utilizing BenQ’s license-free EZWrite 6 annotation and collaboration software. It gives users the freedom to annotate and work directly from the interactive display or a wirelessly connected device. Students are empowered to present their ideas in class, without the hassle of cables, via InstaShare with up to nine screens being shared simultaneously. Where remote students or guests are joining, the display is compatible with all leading videoconferencing software such as Zoom, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams with the optional slot-in PC, which expands the utility of the screen even further. BenQ has also made it possible for two apps to be opened on screen side by side, making lessons more efficient. For example, teachers can explain in detail with a whiteboard on one side and support content on the other, or utilizing InstaShare’s Floating Window mode, share a connected screen alongside another app in use.
Made for Teachers
BenQ’s mission is to eliminate the complexities of using interactive display technology that robs valuable class time or to depend on connected devices to access and manage files and content. The BenQBoard RM03 Series allows teachers to select their personal settings, which are instantly recalled when they log in. In addition, they can securely access lesson materials on Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, or the network. When creating or presenting lessons, EZWrite’s Floating Tool empowers teachers to add text to any app, video, website, document, or image. They can also choose the pen color, erase, open files, or take screenshots. The display’s two built-in 16W speakers and six-microphone array ensure that the entire class can hear and be heard during hybrid and remote lessons. Where connectivity is desired, BenQ has put a range of inputs on the front of the panel, so it’s convenient to charge a notebook or mobile device or connect and display a USB-C-enabled laptop. Plus, they can command the screen and teach lessons from anywhere in the room with the included remote control and voice assistant for increased flexibility.
Respected by IT and Admin Staff
As a central hub for each and every classroom, it’s important IT and admin staff have the tools they need to manage and update the screens. The BenQBoard RM03 Series benefits from BenQ’s X-Sign Broadcast software, which turns any BenQ smart board in the school into signage and allows schools to keep everyone informed and up to date on events, safety protocols, and emergencies. IT staff have access to at-a-glance device analytics for any BenQ display using the included AMS software. They can easily monitor and analyze the status of all the BenQ devices on a single dashboard, including managing displays, apps, and OTA updates remotely for maximum convenience. To assure a greater ROI, the BenQBoard RM03 Series is IP5X-certified to ensure that the panel will deliver consistent operation, even in dust-prone environments.
