The PS750W Interactive, Ultra-Short Throw Projector Offers a Complete Solution for an Integrated and Collaborative Teaching Environment
ORLANDO (June 14, 2017), Booth #1319 – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, expands its line of award-winning interactive learning solutions with the launch of its new PS750W ultra-short throw, interactive projector. The ViewSonic® PS750W projector and included vBoard™ interactive software solution provides the tools to build technologically advanced classrooms where students can create, communicate, and collaborate more effectively.
The PS750W provides for a complete out-of-the-box interactive experience: it includes an embedded camera, dual interactive pens, a laser curtain for 10-point interactive touch, vBoard interactive software for content creation and collaboration, and an ultra-adjustable wall mount kit. With native WXGA (1280x800) resolution, brightness of 3300 lumens and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, this projector shines in any environment. The PS750W also features H/V keystone and four-corner adjustment for easier installation and eliminates distortion for perfectly proportioned images.
The ultra-short throw lens projects large images without shadowing effects, and the PS750W can be placed inches away from a wall or screen to provide a huge image so content can be shared in a big way. It even has the flexibility to be mounted vertically, allowing the possibility to create an interactive table solution where multiple students can draw and write on the same surface.
“We’ve leveraged the best features from our Interactive Flat Panel line to create the PS750W interactive projector solution with large screen size and content-sharing capabilities” said Sean Liu, product marketing manager for ViewSonic Americas. “ViewSonic is committed to delivering presentation solutions for collaboration and sharing, and for promoting critical thinking to students at all levels. With the PS750W, we are helping teachers enhance learning in their classrooms.”
Included with this solution is the ViewSonic vBoard software, allowing users to write, highlight, edit and transform documents and images on the screen in real-time. With 10-point multi-touch capabilities, multiple users can simultaneously work with their fingers or styluses – or both at the same time. vBoard software also provides many advanced features including a built-in Screen Camera function which provides for the recording of every interaction, including the presenter’s voice and camera input if desired. In addition, a screen cast feature is provided allowing for students to share their work with teacher moderation. A proprietary Google Drive™ save feature also lets teachers save content, such as documents and images, directly to a shared Google Cloud Drive.
In addition to the advanced vBoard software, ViewSonic also helps schools ulitlize their legacy content with optional OKTOPUS™ software from Qwizdom™. With OKTOPUS, users can easily import any native SMART or Promethean lessons and utilize that content directly on the ViewSonic PS750W projector. With the freedom to move away from legacy platforms, educators can easily advance their curriculum to the next level.
ViewSonic PS750W comes with multiple connectivity options, including: HDMI, HDMI/MHL, dual VGA, VGA-out, LAN, S-Video, Composite and RJ45. The projector is also Crestron® and AMX® certified, providing for remote control and monitoring caapbilities, as well as the ability to receive projector status alerts, with the integrated Crestron® e-Control™ system and RoomView Express™ management software.
The ViewSonic PS750W projector will be available in July 2017 at an estimated street price of $1,499.00 (USD).
