Polycom and Crestron Use Sharp BOARD to Compete with Cisco

PN-L802B_front_brain-0814The recent success of the new MX Series from Cisco is driving Sharp Imaging, a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, and its 80-inch (diagonal) AQUOS BOARD (PN-L802B) to partner with Crestron (for the RL) and the Polycom (for the CX8000) group collaboration solutions. The interactive display comes as part of Crestron and Polycom’s Lync Room System that is primarily geared toward enterprise solutions. So, obviously, the SHARP 80-inch AQUOS BOARD has been qualified as part of Crestron RL and Polycom CX8000’s Lync Room Systems.

Sharp’s PN-L802B system is a native resolution 1920×1080 LCD that’s LED backlit and can be used as a digital whiteboard. The 80-inch display is one of the larger models to operate with this particular meeting room solution by Crestron RL and the Polycom CX8000 for Microsoft Lync, which other models includes the 55-inch class and 65-inch class displays.

Here is the Sharp display by itself.
