Sharp unveils new 80 inch touch screen LCD
Dubai, March 27, 2012
Sharp Middle East has announced the expansion of its broad line-up of large touch screen LCDs with introduction of its new 80-inch touch-panel display, IILED-80 in the region.
The screen was unveiled to partners during Sharp’s 'Bigger is Better' partner conference held recently in Dubai.
The 80-inch panel combines a high-performance interactive display with a well-designed, comprehensive system for uniquely collaborative sessions – and continues to set a new standard in price-performance for touch-screen displays, said a statement from Sharp.
This latest addition to Sharp’s evolving family of hitech large panel touch-screen displays compliments the existing 60-inch (60 1/32” diagonal) and 70-inch (69-1/2" diagonal) models, allowing organizations to operate in a visual and truly collaborative way, creating a dynamic and interactive workplace experience, it added.
The launch further enhances Sharp’s reputation as a world leader in large-screen interactive touch-panel display systems, said a senior official.
“Similar to what our innovative and industry-leading large-screen TVs are doing for the home, Sharp’s large-screen interactive touch-panel display systems are revolutionizing the workplace,” remarked Tomoo Shimizu, the director of Business Solutions Division, Sharp Middle East.
“The 80-inch unit provides endless collaboration, information and entertainment options and is a welcome addition to Sharp’s family of solutions designed to improve our workplace lives,” he added.
Designed to optimize and integrate a wide range of applications companies need in order to think big and disseminate information on a global scale – such as work group collaboration, video conferencing, interactive signage and video walls – the 80-inch panel delivers more than double the screen area of a 55-inch class display.
It is ideal for any setting that requires large-scale collaboration, information and/or entertainment options, including meeting rooms, office lobbies, schools, airports, malls, exhibit halls and hotels, said Shimizu.
Further facilitating global collaboration, the IILED-80 offers business users seamless integration with presentation and video conferencing technologies, including WebEx, GoToMeeting and Skype, said the official.
Additionally, the system will be fully compatible with a full array of familiar Microsoft products (Microsoft Office Suite, Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft touch Pack for Windows 7, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
