Westinghouse to Enter the Interactive Whiteboard Market at InfoComm

windows-0613Westinghouse Digital will announce a lineup of digital LED-based whiteboards at InfoComm in a plan that the company hopes will displace SMART Technologies. The Westinghouse WhiteBoard line consists of four models, ranging in size from 55-inch high-definition units through a massive 84-inch 4K (UltraHD) model and are aimed at classrooms to broad-scale auditoriums. They are compatible with Windows 8 and 7 operating systems with available optional PC module in the provided slot or user-supplied PC.

The Westinghouse Digital Whiteboards claim to feature the proprietary CVT Touch 6 point Infrared Touch system. The CVT Touch 6 point Infrared Touch system provides a new dimension in interactive control and detects touch points quickly, at less than 5 milliseconds, and with high accuracy. The display surface has a Mohs level 7 rating and has available optional anti-glare coating.

Each of the four models include a standard, on-site, three-year warranty. The flagship product is the 84-inch WB84KH1 with a resolution of 3840×2160 (4K). Connectivity includes two HDMI ports, two VGA and component video and it’s integrated with RS232 control.

The rest of the lineup includes the WB55FH1, a 55-inch widescreen (1920×1080) resolution, the WB65FH1 and WB70FH1 at 65 and 70 inches, respectively. The 55, 60 and 70-inch models all are specified at nominal brightness of 500 cd/m2, a contrast ratio of 5,000:1, a 120 Hz refresh rate and full 10-bit color space.

Here are all the specs.
