Oxford, United Kingdom, November 10th 2016 – BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, today announced it will exclusively bring to market Jamboard, a 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) touch-enabled device aimed at enhancing collaboration in the enterprise workplace.
Headlining BenQ’s portfolio of corporate interactive flat panels (IFPs), the 55-inch Jamboard benefits from the power of G Suite, supporting how people work — whether in the conference room or huddle space or with a remote team via the integrated videoconferencing features. The panel fits right into today’s new digital workplace, transforming meetings into an engaging and effective experience, boosting productivity and ultimately improving the bottom line.
“Jamboard is the answer to companies’ constant need to search for better means of communication to foster productive collaboration between people, thereby resulting in a more team-oriented working environment.” said Conway Lee, president of BenQ Corporation.
As a globally recognized pioneer in display solutions with a long history of award-winning visual technology innovations, BenQ is a natural fit to partner with Google Cloud on this enterprise device. “Jamboard is the physical realization of combining all the best features from G Suite, backed by the support of BenQ,” Lee said.
The fully integrated Jamboard will retail at a very competitive price point under $6,000 USD in both US and Canada and will be available from select BenQ partners in Q1 2017. For the UK region, Jamboard is also scheduled for release in March 2017.
