Elo today announced the launch of its 6553L touchscreen and fourth-generation Elo computer module (ECMG4). The 6553L touchscreen provides a platform for what the company says is captivating digital signage experiences in public spaces, as well as engaging and collaborative communication within enterprises.
The 6553L touchscreen is part of Elo’s new IDS 3 Series, which expands Elo’s reach into a new class of applications. In addition to interactive signage, the IDS 3 Series’ use cases include presentations, whiteboarding, device connection, conferencing and meeting management and anywhere a wall tablet enhances the aesthetic and experience.
The 65-inch touchscreen is Energy Star 7.0 certified, featuring thin borders and built-in, high-powered speakers that are down-firing to enhance aesthetics and audio quality. As well, the 500 NITs 6553L is a new addition to Elo’s 4K Ultra HD product portfolio, with both PCAP and IR touch technologies at a competitive price. The touchscreen is compatible with a new, more compact and powerful ECM. The new Windows-based ECMG4, designed specifically for the IDS 3 Series, features continued use of embedded desktop CPU/GPUs to enable media-rich, interactive content, and a modular design that allows for CPU/MB updates without affecting the monitor’s performance.
With the 6553L touchscreen and ECMG4, Elo customers instantly gain access to Elo’s Whiteboarding Software solution, powered by Elo and Qwizdom’s OKTOPUS. The whiteboarding software fosters an environment of collaboration, giving customers key features such as an active stylus for hands-on collaboration, handwriting recognition and text entry via a soft keyboard, as well as media integration, screen recording and audio input and recording. Customers can also choose to add on the DisplayNote Montage software with the Elo Computer Module bundle to further enhance collaboration through file sharing and cloud connectivity.
Each 6553L includes two styli. The active styli, shipped with the PCAP versions, have unique IDs, allowing them to be assigned specific on-screen colors — a good fit for whiteboarding and collaboration applications.
Elo’s 6553L touchscreen gives users the ability to configure the solution to fit their application, and to connect and collaborate through an open modular platform for ISVs and SIs (system integrators). Users can also install the software of their choosing. The new 65-inch 6553L can be configured with any Elo Edge Connect peripheral. Monitor I/O ports on the 6553L screen span the range of ProAV installations, with the addition of side-accessible HDMI, USB, display and video source touchpoints.
Elo’s partnership with Crestron Electronics includes Crestron Connected compatibility in Elo’s Windows-powered displays, giving Elo customers and partners the capability to control devices with Crestron software. Elo plans to have displays certified by Crestron available in early 2020. As well, Elo will soon release additional add-on accessories, including a configurable conferencing webcam that Elo customers will be able to add to their 6553L displays for added user engagement.
All of them are here.
