Exertis and Samsung partner to grow ‘out-of-the-box’ interactive display solution business in the corporate and education markets.
9 May 2016, Basingstoke: Exertis, a leading distributor of technology products for the B2B, mobile and retail markets, has been appointed as Samsung’s exclusive distribution partner for their innovative interactive large format displays. The agreement sees Exertis and Samsung partner in a major initiative to grow the corporate and education markets, and Exertis spearhead a dedicated UK wide demonstration team.
Ian Neale, Exertis’ business manager for visual products, stated “Samsung’s interactive large format display is a real game-changer. It’s a complete, PC free, ‘out-of-the-box’ interactive solution that requires no extra hardware or cables, allows full on-screen wireless collaboration and opens up a world of new possibilities in the corporate market for more efficient and productive meetings. This is a key opportunity for reseller partners to gain an advantage in the rapidly growing corporate and public sector markets, whilst not forgetting the considerable replacement interactive whiteboard opportunity in education.”
The product transforms meetings by allowing attendees to browse the web, show documents, share ideas and collaborate through a ‘large touchscreen’ experience, and all straight out of the box without the need for any extra PCs or cables. Samsung’s new MagicIWB S2 interactive content management software enables on-screen browsing, hand-gesture screen manipulation, Microsoft Office application editing, finger or pen stylus control and content sharing on iOS, Windows, Android, Mac and Chrome devices. Up to four Windows devices can, via Airscreen technology, wirelessly connect to, and be controlled from, the interactive board, to share documents, content and screens with the room, where presenters can control connected devices on-screen to annotate, comment and save. Plus, a pre-installed, quad-core Android player delivers a truly intuitive ‘large touchscreen’ experience and touch screen browser access to external content.
The range comprises three models (65”, 75” and 82”) all delivering fast, high definition, crisp, clear and colour rich presentation, and are available for reseller and end-customers nationwide to experience via the Exertis nationwide demonstration programme. Interested resellers should contact their Exertis account manager for details.
