ViewSonic Launches New Corporate Collaboration ViewBoard for the Workplace

The IFP70 Series enhances collaboration and communications for optimised productivity and is Microsoft Azure IoT certified

London, United Kingdom (September 9, 2019)ViewSonic Corp, a leading global provider of visual solutions, today announces the launch of new corporate collaboration ViewBoards for the workplace. The new ViewBoard IFP70 series is a further expansion of ViewSonic’s line of collaboration solutions, which are specially designed for enterprises to provide easy-to-use and next-generation conferencing capabilities that facilitate seamless collaboration and communications within modern and globalised workplaces. ViewBoard IFP70 displays have also been developed with smart-IoT-connected space in mind and are Microsoft Azure IoT certified.

“With our know-how and experience from our ViewBoard platform, we have developed a solution that will revolutionise how people work, communicate, and collaborate and help bring organisations up to speed with the fast-paced business world of today,” said Monica Sun, Director of Large Format Display Business Unit at ViewSonic. “Combining the advancements of hardware, software, and the Internet of Things, we strive to make the workplace an environment where teamwork can reach its full potential, enhancing the efficiency and productivity of employees, even when those team members span globally.”

Designed for modern workplaces- walk in, plug in, and get down to business

As anyone who has used video or web conferencing solutions can attest to, trying to figure out cumbersome cables and connectivity issues can delay meetings and get things off on the wrong foot. Luckily, ViewBoard IFP70 displays help alleviate these problems with one-cable connectivity via USB-C. With just one cable to worry about, starting a meeting or presentation is easy, fast, and without that awkward moment as team members scramble to get things started. With support for A/V, data, Ethernet and power delivery, one cable is all you need.

Once the presentation or conference is underway, collaboration among participants is seamless with support for Windows 10, Office 365, and Team Rooms. With ViewSonic’s ViewBoard Cast content sharing app for mobile devices, participants can stream 1080p content from their device onto the ViewBoard wirelessly. Presenters can also control displayed content from a phone, tablet, or laptop. Multimedia, documents, cloud files, and almost any content can be used by on the display at the same time by multiple users simultaneously, enabling real-time annotations. A premium bezel-less PCAP (projected capacitive) touchscreen with smart pen provides an incredibly natural and responsive writing experience, using fingers, styluses, or a mixture of both.

Bring your workplace into the future - IoT Ready

With the growing presence of IoT, ViewBoard IFP70 displays are ready to bring your workplace into the future. Microsoft Azure IoT certified ViewBoard IFP70 displays will enable smarter workspaces through a myriad of capabilities. They include built-in sensors that detect and measure presence, room temperature, humidity levels, and ambient light, all tied in with the new Microsoft Azure Digital Twins (Note 1) service to provide office managers with the data they need to optimise workspaces for employees and improve energy efficiency, consumption and cost breakdown.
