New Commercial-Grade Public Information Display Introduces Industry-Leading Six-Point Multitouch Technology
IRVINE, Calif. — July 31, 2013 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of digital lifestyle innovations, today announced that it is now shipping its interactive IL420 touch-screen public information display (PID) to customers nationwide. Featuring industry-leading six-point multitouch technology on a 42-inch screen, the interactive display has been deliberately designed for public venues that demand longer service life, increased interactivity, higher dependability, and better environmental considerations.
With six-point multitouch capabilities — the highest number of touch points in the industry — the IL420 augments the customer experience with interactive content, facilitates information finding, and provides corporate settings with a flat-panel solution geared toward increased collaboration. Featuring ambient light sensors to adjust screen brightness automatically according to environmental lighting conditions and LAN control for remote management and maintenance, the IL420 also provides both enhanced energy savings and more efficient overall 24/7 signage operation.
“With the release of our new IL420 multitouch display, BenQ has positioned itself at the forefront of the digital signage sector,” said Kristin Kennedy, Associate Vice President, U.S. Sales at BenQ America Corp. “In the realm of commercial signage, such a high number of touch points on an interactive panel translates into smoother screen navigation, providing a better overall experience for users whether in retail, hospitality, corporate, or even education applications. When coupled with full-HD resolution, a 4000:1 contrast ratio, and latency-free response times, the IL420 distinguishes itself as a highly advanced, commercial-grade interactive flat-panel display.”
Producing smooth, rich images with no visible color banding, the IL420 interactive touch display also provides scheduling management functions, is optimized for portrait mode scenarios, and delivers rich connectivity options for added flexibility. These include two built-in 12-W speakers, PIP / PBP capabilities, DisplayPort connectivity, and RS232 / LAN control. The screen provides ultra-high brightness of up to 1.07 billion colors and features anti-image retention to prevent the burned-in effect after extended periods of usage in commercial displays. For larger signage installations, the device’s Multiple Display Administrator (MDA) application enables the control of up to 98 displays simultaneously through the local network.
Available now, the IL420 retails at a price of $2,499. More information on the full line of BenQ products is available at www.BenQ.us.
