Video: Sharp 4K BIG PAD, 8K ecosystem and more at ISE 2018
At the largest and busiest Integrated Systems Europe yet, we showed our latest AV products and solutions to more than 80,000 attendees over four days. ISE is the one event a year where the whole AV community gets together and we always enjoy the chance to meet our partners and customers and get inspired by the industry.
Our stand included our two main areas of focus, interactive displays for the meeting room and smart digital signage for corporate signage and retail signage. Half of our stand was dedicated to demonstrating how we can make meetings more productive, with easy-to-use interactive BIG PAD displays that suit many different styles of working.
Another area of our stand showed our new and most flexible range of smart digital signage solutions. They are flexible in how they can be installed and how they handle content, with a wide choice in specifications.
One of the key developments in the market is still the integration of smart interfaces in connected displays. For us, smart means technology doing more of the work for you, and offering you more support and value. Complex functions become much more accessible and easier to use, which should provide us all with more productivity.
Sharp BIG PAD Interactive Displays
As Sid highlights, “At the very top end of our range, we have added a premium 4K BIG PAD for those users that really want the very best in touch experience for their most important meeting rooms.”
The BIG PAD PN-70TH5 is our first ever interactive display with a 4K LCD touch panel and is part of a fifth generation of BIG PAD displays.
Also new for interactive displays is our 50-inch BIG PAD PN50TC1 with Mini OPS PC. Designed for huddle spaces, this display is the perfect blend of collaboration tool and conferencing display intended for use for meetings between two and six users.
Sharp Digital Signage
Also new at ISE 2018 were the Sharp PN-M and Sharp PN-B large format displays. Both models come in 40-inch and 50-inch panel sizes and are designed to meet the needs of mainstream 24/7 applications, such as 24-hour stores or control rooms.
“Very proud of those.” Said Sid. “What they bring to you, our partners, is probably one of the most flexible ranges of specifications out there in the marketplace.” However, as Sid explains it’s not just the displays that are important but also the range of digital signage software partners across the whole of Europe that you can work with, thanks to the open System-on-Chip (SoC) nature of the displays.
To see these highlights, and our 8K camcorder and display, watch our round-up with Sid Stanley.
