Sharp launches new BIG PAD with privacy buttons

Warsaw, 08-06-2017
Sharp Electronics CEE has added two new privacy buttons to its latest BIG PAD interactive displays. The 70” PN-70SC5 and 80” PN-80SC5 include ‘Freeze Frame’ and ‘Blackout’ buttons on the bezel to give a presenter the ability to instantly freeze or blank the display while they work on their connected device, or prepare the content that they will show next. These new features have been added to give presenters more confidence to lead engaging, collaborative meetings.

Sharp has also made technical improvements to the screen of the PN-70SC5 and PN-80SC5. They are the first BIG PAD models to include “direct optical bonding” for an improved touch experience. Direct bonding removes the air gap between the LCD panel and the touch surface so you mark exactly where you point.

Direct optical bonding and other display technologies, including 10-point infrared (IR) touch, combine to offer Sharp’s ‘Pen-on-Paper’ user experience, which describes how writing on a BIG PAD with your finger or pen feels close to using a real pen on writing paper.

Christopher Parker, Senior Product Manager, Visual Solutions, Sharp Europe, said: “Our priority with BIG PAD is always the user experience, we have spent six years making it fast and intuitive and easy to use, building on this with every new device. What users will notice with our latest model is incredibly accurate touch and some shortcut buttons on the bezel to put them in greater control. Being able to freeze or blank the screen means you don’t need to show what you are doing on your desktop, you can be much slicker.”

The PN-70SC5 and PN-80SC5 models can also run Sharp’s Touch Viewing software, a touch-operated onscreen user interface that lets you easily manipulate different types of files, including Microsoft® Office applications, videos, and web pages. Being able to simultaneously open and handle a variety of file types allows you to have more dynamic meetings. 

To make it easier for people to collaborate in meetings, the PN-70SC5 and PN-80SC5 also feature the Sharp Display Connect application. Sharp Display Connect lets up to 50 people connect to the BIG PAD using their own personal devices, make notes and contribute to the meeting or share their own content personal devices to BIG PAD.

The PN-70SC5 and PN-80SC are available from Sharp and its partners now.
