BenQ Launches a Smart Meeting Room Projector with Built in Windows 11

BenQ just launched the EH620 as a smart meeting room projector that includes built-in Windows 11. The EH620 has built-in Edge and Chrome web browsers and a wireless presentation system with four-way split windows for sharing multiple screens simultaneously. This is a good example and sneak peek at what a hardware-less room could look like, or, an AVaaS model where all the hardware is in the cloud.

Featuring the built-in Windows 11 platform, the EH620 allows users to log in to the projector just as they would a Windows PC. Users will not need to learn how to operate a new device while collaborating. They can access their cloud account files on Google Drive, OneDrive and Microsoft Teams without using laptops. Additionally, a Launcher interface organizes apps into three groups, saving users time spent downloading, searching or logging into apps. They just click the apps and start the meeting.

The BenQ EH620 also supports all BYOD devices. Without installing any additional software or using Wi-Fi dongles, users can wirelessly present by either casting their devices directly to the projector with Miracast, AirPlay, Google Cast (available in December 2022) or by utilizing BenQ’s InstaShare application. Up to four presenters can share their screens simultaneously with a four-way split-screen. Plus, the projector supports hybrid meetings. When running a video conferencing app directly from the EH620 and wirelessly casting, both remote and in-room attendees can view the casted presentations.

Since the EH620 is preloaded with meeting apps including Google Meet, Skype for Business and TeamViewer Meeting, users can launch and join video conferences directly from the projector to free up personal devices from public use. The projector detects plug-and-play web cameras automatically and will switch to the optimal Vocal Audio Mode when the app launches.

Here are all the specs:
