INFOCUS LAUNCHES JTOUCH WHITEBOARD
InFocus, recognised as a leader in collaboration and projection tools, has launched the JTouch Whiteboard — a simplified version at a new, affordable price.
With a built-in interactive whiteboard, teachers and presenters can now edit files from display instead of a computer. The JTouch Whiteboard redefines and simplifies the note-taking process for everyone through the ease of display via Windows, Mac, and Chromebook devices. InFocus is offering this version to K-12 schools for a special price to help connect classrooms and introduce tech that can be a replacement for textbooks, homework. They are helping teachers use video as a learning tool and create flipped classrooms to spend more one-on-one time with students all in an affordable way.
“We created the JTouch Whiteboard with simplicity and ease-of-use in mind,” said InFocus product marketing manager, Robert Detwiler. “If you want device casting, built-in browsers, on-board PCs and video conferencing you can find them in our Mondopad, BigTouch and JTouch with LightCast, but if you only need to display and control your notebook or jot down some digital notes for everyone to see on a large, HD screen, you need the JTouch Whiteboard.”
The JTouch Whiteboard (INF6501w) has nearly identical specifications to the JTouch Whiteboard with LightCast (INF6501c) that InFocus released earlier this year but can access a network or the Internet only through a connected computer. The INF6501w supports edge-to-edge touch and Windows 7/8 gestures and offers integrated stereo speakers for 20W stereo sound. It has four front-facing USB ports as well as four HDMI ports, DVI, VGA (HD15 VESA), USB Type-A x 4, 3.5mm stereo audio in, 3.5mm stereo audio out, and a USB Type-B port for touch screen control.
The JTouch Whiteboard will be available for purchase through InFocus resellers and directly from the manufacturer at infocusstore.com for $2,899 USD in Q4 2015. K-12 schools can purchase the device for $1,999 USD.
