Sharp Unveils Newest Large-Format 4K Ultra-HD Collaboration Display to Meet Evolving Classroom and Meeting Room Needs

MONTVALE, N.J., Nov. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation (SEC), introduced today the 4K Ultra-HD Sharp 4T-B80CT1U AQUOS BOARD® interactive display, Sharp's newest solution for more collaborative and interactive classrooms and meeting rooms.

With a similar design and features as the 70" Class (69.5" diagonal) 4T-B70CT1U AQUOS BOARD interactive display released late last year, this latest 80" Class (80.5" diagonal) collaboration device offers the perfect solution for those in search of a large-format display for interactivity and all the essentials for collaborative learning. The display captures fine textures of still video and images, while reproducing precise details of small text and complex graphics in pristine and stunning 4K Ultra-HD quality resolution.  

Completing a display series that offers affordable pricing for 4K Ultra-HD resolution, this new model also comes with key features such as 20-point multi-touch functionality, a Plug and Play feature so that the display is automatically recognized when connected to a computer without installing a driver, built-in speakers with crystal clear audio and a RS-232C and LAN command set for flexible remote control from connected devices.

Additionally, Sharp Pen Software features a handwriting recognition function that can convert selected onscreen handwriting into standard text. It can also recognize handwritten shapes—such as circles, triangles, and straight lines—and automatically convert them into objects. This smart and convenient function makes it easy to utilize onscreen content to make a legible record of a lesson or meeting.

"As students continue to return to the classroom for face-to-face learning and employees trickle back into the office, the interactivity and connectivity of classroom and meeting room technology becomes even more important," said Gary Bailer, director of Product Planning & Marketing, Pro AV Products, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. "With so much adjustment in this new normal, we are pleased to offer this latest product with features that make interactive learning and collaboration even easier for teachers and employees."

The 4T-B80CT1U AQUOS BOARD interactive display is expected to ship this month and orders may be placed immediately. Click here to learn more.
