Sharp® Introduces Complete Interactive Whiteboard Solution for Meetings, Workgroup Collaboration, Video Conferencing, Interactive Digital Signage and More

PN-L601B-PKG Bundle Includes 60-Inch Class Full-Array LED Backlit Touch-Panel Display, Compact Whiteboard PC and Rolling Floor Stand

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - February 23, 2011) - Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, today unveils its PN-L601B-PKG, a complete interactive whiteboard solution for meeting collaboration, video conferencing, interactive digital signage, presentations and higher-education applications. The bundle includes the PN-L601B 60-inch (60-inch diagonal) class full-array LED backlit touch-panel display, the PN-TPC1W compact whiteboard PC and SR-560M rolling cart floor stand. The whiteboard PC connects easily to the back of the display via a provided HDMI cable.

"The PN-L601B-PKG allows those seeking a well-designed, comprehensive and highly performing interactive whiteboard solution the opportunity to acquire one in a single purchase," said Steve Brauner, senior product planning manager for professional displays, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. "The convenience of this cannot be overstated, especially in busy workplaces where decision-makers may not have the time or expertise to effectively research the separate components necessary to build this kind of system."

PN-L601B Touch-Panel Display
The PN-L601B 60-inch class LCD touch-panel offers full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution and is equipped with Sharp's UV2A photo alignment and Full Array LED backlight technologies to create an evenly-lit bright and energy-efficient screen that is easy to read in most environments, regardless of ambient lighting levels. The PN-L601B's accurate touch-screen response is made possible by Sharp's infrared detection system, which uses multiple infrared sensors to pinpoint the location of the user's onscreen finger or touch pen movements to virtually eliminate the perception of misalignment.

Sharp developed intuitive pen software specifically for the PN-L601B with a user-friendly interface that enables the selection of pen colors and eraser functions with a click of the touch pen button. Once images are displayed on the screen, users can draw directly on them with a touch pen or their finger to quickly make notes and reference marks. These images, with notations, can then be saved as a file on a PC or printed via a connected Sharp Multifunction Product (MFP). Connecting the PN-L601B to a Sharp MFP with color scanning function also enables documents and images to be easily scanned and displayed on the PN-L601B via the pen software.

The PN-L601B is ideal for 24/7 operation, with a three-year onsite parts and labor limited warranty. ENERGY STAR® qualified, this model is designed to be both exceptionally reliable and environmentally friendly.

With the introduction of the PN-L601B-PKG bundle, the PN-L601B is now available both as a stand-alone interactive whiteboard display as well as a component of a complete, bundled and ready-to-go electronic whiteboard solution. When not being used as an interactive whiteboard, the PN-L601B doubles as an extremely versatile LCD presentation monitor.

PN-TPC1W Compact Whiteboard PC
The PN-TPC1W is a compact whiteboard PC that easily attaches to the rear of the PN-L601B display permitting an "all-in-one" electronic whiteboard solution. The PN-TPC1W utilizes a powerful dual core Intel® Atom™ N330 CPU and comes pre-loaded with Sharp Pen Software™ and touch screen drivers. It is sold with an HDMI® connecting cable for easy system set-up.

The SR-560M is a high quality rolling cart floor stand ideally suited for supporting the 60-inch class PN-L601B display. Manufactured by Peerless Industries, it includes a metal shelf, 4" swivel casters, and a specially designed retaining nut for increased safety.

Pricing and Availability
The PN-L601B-PKG is currently available through Sharp's network of dealers, distributors and VARs for $14,795 MSRP.
