InFocus DigiEasel Whiteboard Aimed at Huddle Spaces

infocus-digieasel-0909InFocus Corporation has unveiled something they are calling DigiEasel – a line of interactive touchscreen displays designed for smaller meeting rooms and huddle spaces. The 40-inch, 1080p-resolution, 10-point touch DigiEasel has two models, which both feature built-in digital whiteboarding tools and give users display and touch control of their Windows, Mac and Chromebook devices. InFocus’ DigiEasel with LightCast technology has wireless casting abilities of another device’s screen, the ability to save and email notes and Internet browsing capabilities. InFocus is also launching DigiEasel Sign Manager, which enables DigiEasel to display an organization’s HTML5 interactive signage and stories.

InFocus is introducing two models, the DigiEasel with LightCast (INF4032) and DigiEasel (INF4030). The DigiEasel with LightCast supports casting content from Android, Windows, and Apple iOS and OSX wirelessly and has a built-in Internet Browser and can connect to a corporate network. Both models allow notebook display and control via HDMI or VGA and USB and have built-in digital whiteboarding software. Additionally, both models are edge-to-edge capacitive touchscreens that don’t require calibration, have 20-watt stereo speakers, a stylus and a tray.

When not being used for collaboration, DigiEasel owners can leverage the device as a digital interactive portrait or landscape sign (when using DigiEasel Sign Manager). The software enables customers to load and display their own customized HTML5-based content on either DigiEasel model.

DigiEasel will list for $999 and Sign Manager is $899. Here are all the details.
