InFocus Releases Interactive JTouch Whiteboard and Touch Display to Simplify Group Work

infocus-jtouch-1015InFocus Corporation just unveiled a 65” version of the JTouch Whiteboard (INF6501w) interactive touchscreen display. The 65-inch, 1080p-resolution, multi-point touchscreen INF6501w lets users display and control their Windows, Mac and Chromebook devices, allowing teachers and presenters to show and edit files from the display rather than behind their computers. It has a built-in interactive whiteboard that features digital pens, highlighters, shapes and a variety of colors to choose from, ensuring note-takers have all they need to capture ideas.

Aimed at people who want the Microsoft Surface Hub (but, a lot less expensive), the JTouch Whiteboard (INF6501w) has nearly identical specifications to the JTouch Whiteboard with LightCast (INF6501c) that InFocus released earlier this year but can access a network or the Internet only through a connected computer. The INF6501w supports edge-to-edge touch and Windows 7/8 gestures and offers integrated stereo speakers for 20W stereo sound. It has four front-facing USB ports as well as four HDMI ports, DVI, VGA (HD15 VESA), USB Type-A x 4, 3.5mm stereo audio in, 3.5mm stereo audio out and a USB Type-B port for touch screen control.

The JTouch Whiteboard will list for $2,899 and ship in Q4 2015. K-12 schools can purchase the device for $1,999. All the details are here.
