Ricoh’s New A-Series Interactive Whiteboards Provide Compelling Interactive Collaborative Experience for Classrooms, Training Rooms, and Corporate Meetings

18 Nov 2022

Sydney, November 17, 2022 – RICOH, a leading provider of smart workplace technology, has announced the Australian launch of the company’s new Android-based A-Series Interactive Whiteboards (IWB) also known as Interactive Flat Panel Displays (IFPD). The new series of IWBs provide all the basic requirements for interactive learning and collaborative experiences for classrooms, training rooms, and corporate meeting spaces.

RICOH’s A-Series range can accommodate the ever-changing needs of educational and corporate environments at an affordable price point. With the addition of the optional Windows controller and compatible USB conference cameras, customers receive a robust solution that increases the capability of these boards.

Offering built-in Android-based apps with a simple UI, the new A-Series IWBs feature an easy-to-use whiteboard application enabling up to 16 simultaneous touch points with either the included dual-tip passive pen or a finger, bringing collaboration and creativity to life. 

In particular, the education/training sector will appreciate the multiscreen annotation mode which divides the screen into two or three sections assigning different pen functions, colours, and styles to each section to build fun exercises for students. Meeting organisers will also benefit from several custom templates available to guide group discussions, workshops, and run interactive socials to break up the workday. 

Wireless connectivity to the panel is simple and quick with the EShare app which enables wireless bi-directional communication between mobile devices and the panel. No need to fumble around with cables or settings, simply launch the app and connect to an A-Series IWB on the same network. The panel is displayed on an unlimited number of mobile devices so remote users can see the content from the comfort of their own location. This may be a student seated at the back of the classroom, or a remote meeting participant working from home while connected to the corporate LAN. 

"At RICOH Australia we want to continue to promote interactive learning and collaboration, whether in-person or remote. The RICOH A-Series Interactive Whiteboards will provide this to educators and business professionals at a competitive price with essential features and functionality. The new interactive whiteboards, embedded with Android OS, were designed based on customer feedback and simplicity in mind. We wanted a product set that specifically caters to education and SMB markets. We are delighted to launch the A-Series Interactive Whiteboards in Australia at such a critical time in this post-pandemic era," said Tina Economou, GM Sales & Marketing at RICOH Australia.

Customers wanting a premium experience with advanced features can also easily upgrade to the existing RICOH D-Series collaboration boards for a complete meeting room solution.
