X-Sign Broadcast: Creating a Smart Campus

X-Sign Broadcast, a new feature on BenQ ClassroomCare™ IFPs, is the next generation of wireless broadcast systems supporting text, images, videos, Office files, YouTube and more. Educators can deliver lesson content, administrators can send important messages and safety alerts, and students can preview and review class materials in a single class or selected group of classes.

There are two modes of message delivery: “Interrupt” messages are delivered to the class immediately, appearing on the IFP screen during class. “Schedule” content is set beforehand to appear at a certain date and time. When the client is connected to the web, users can schedule messages or content delivery using any computer, smartphone or tablet, smart device, or X-Sign-compatible IFP.

Unique On-site Demonstrations

In line with current STEM and Project Based Learning and real collaborative and smart classrooms, a series of on-site demonstrations will be showcased at BenQ’s booth.

1. Real-time Collaborative Classroom, featuring BenQ’s EZWrite 5’s Cloud Whiteboard with Board-to-Board applications. Cloud Whiteboard allows teachers and students to collect, categorise, edit, and share ideas between IFPs and mobile devices, making it a perfect tool for collaboration and remote learning. With Board-to-Board Applications, students can engage in project-based learning by joining the same online lesson or discussion using different BenQ IFPs. The customised Android OS platform allows schools to develop and install their own learning and teaching suite.

2. Virtual Reality Science Lab using VEYOND Reality’s virtual chemistry and physics software. This brings future proof technology into the classroom by incorporating VR with BenQ’s Interactive Flat Panel, creating a virtual STEM classroom that enhances learning with safe and engaging virtual environments that fulfill real life education needs.

3. Integrated Education Display Solutions for smart classrooms, including BenQ IFP, Dustproof Laser Projector and Wireless Presentation Device InstaShow™ . Presenters can make annotations on their IFP that immediately displays on the projection screen using InstaShow. This solution is designed for lecture halls, auditoriums, interactive classrooms, multimedia rooms and more. More importantly, ClassroomCare™ IFP combines an Air Quality Sensor, TÜV-certified Germ Resistant screen and Low Blue Light and Flicker-free technologies with anti-glare displays, providing a safeguard in the classrooms. Dustguard™ Pro Laser Projectors include a sealed engine that block up to 99% of particles with IP5X-level protection, ensuring long lasting, low maintenance operation.

BenQ Wireless Solutions: InstaShow™ and InstaShare

Schools now are now making the transition into smart campuses.
