BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, has won six 2022 New Product Awards from THE Journal and Campus Technology. Both publications honored BenQ's RP03 Series BenQ Board with four Platinum New Product Awards in the classroom presentation tool hardware and interactive whiteboard, display, flat panel, or kiosk categories. In addition, the company's DVY32 Smart 4K Conference Camera was bestowed with a Platinum award from THE Journal and a Gold award from Campus Technology in the video/web conferencing hardware category. The awards honor the outstanding product development achievements of manufacturers and suppliers whose products or services are considered to be particularly noteworthy in the transformation of education technology.
"Technology in education must ensure that every feature and capability addresses the challenges and needs of staff and students with intuitiveness and innovation," said Bob Wudeck, senior director of business development at BenQ America Corp. "Both our BenQ Boards and our video cameras were built utilizing feedback from educators so they would have the best possible and most comfortable tools to truly reshape the future of learning. We're incredibly honored to be at the top of THE Journal's and Campus Technology's best new product lists."
Teach with Ease, Boost Engagement and Comprehension
Educational technology is only as beneficial as its ability to integrate into the resources and applications already being used in the classroom. What's more, teachers have a heavy burden to quickly understand and leverage technology capabilities 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. Encouraging active participation in class while protecting student and teacher health, the 65", 75", and 86" RP03 BenQ Boards feature one-tap NFC log-in to instantly load lesson materials; interactive teaching tools for more hands-on lessons; germ-resistant screen, pen, and remote; split windows for multitasking; array microphones, 16W speakers, and 16W Dolby Digital Plus surround sound for lesson clarity in class and online; InstaShare wireless screen sharing; and new Eyesafe® technology for reducing blue light emissions. It's also the first display from BenQ to include an air ionizer.
Teachers can use their RP03 smart boards like a whiteboard, display, computer, and wireless screen-sharing system thanks to BenQ's license-free EZWrite 6 software. It's packed with classroom tools for all subjects, including timers, rulers, protractors, compasses, and more. EZWrite 6 also lets educators save whiteboard sessions on the cloud, allowing them to continue giving lessons at a later time or for students to access on any device and refer to later. They can also open documents and image files directly on the whiteboard to facilitate discussions. To complement the experience, the split-screen windows function enables multiple applications to be opened side by side — with no need to tap between content — making it even easier to conduct lessons and further comprehension.
Virtual Learning That Sounds and Looks Amazing
The BenQ DVY32 video camera produces vivid 4K UHD video with a 120-degree field of view that lets remote students see everyone clearly and in rich detail, making it the perfect video conference camera for distance and hybrid learning. BenQ's enhanced low-light performance makes subjects stand out from the dark. With digital pan, tilt, and zoom, educators can keep students focused on what's important while the AI-powered auto framing adjusts the shot so whoever is speaking always appears on the screen. In addition, the smart video camera automatically corrects distortion to stream accurate videos and utilizes the latest compression standard, H.265, which requires less bandwidth and ensures smooth streaming even with suboptimal network conditions. The camera's two omnidirectional microphones pick up audio from up to 26 feet (8m) away and using advanced noise-suppressing technology, they tune out background noise, so students don't miss any information. The DVY32 passes Zoom standards for optimal video conferencing, but it's also compatible with all leading video conferencing apps, including TeamViewer Meeting. It can be mounted to a computer, smart display, table, or wall mount. Just mount it, connect it, and start class right away.
