BenQ Wins Two TCEA 2020 Best of Show Awards From Tech & Learning
EW800ST Smart Interactive Projector and InstaShow S Wireless Screen-Mirroring System Singled Out as Top Innovations for Future-Ready Classrooms
COSTA MESA, Calif. — Feb. 11, 2020 — BenQ, an internationally renowned provider of visual display and collaboration solutions, today announced that a panel of educator judges from Tech & Learning magazine honored BenQ's EW800ST smart interactive classroom projector and InstaShow S WDC20 classroom screen-mirroring system with TCEA 2020 Best of Show Awards. The EW800ST is the first education projector to feature cloud account integration, screen-mirroring capabilities, smart app capability, and internet and wireless connectivity to promote diversified teaching and blended learning in K-12 classrooms. InstaShow S WDC20 supports BYOD classrooms by allowing multiple presenters to lead from any device without the awkwardness of passing a single cable between multiple presenters, running risky third-party software, or acquiring network access.
"The classroom is the foundation for students' future success, which is why it must feature technology that they'll later depend on in their careers," said Carly Burton-Sallay, digital marketing manager at BenQ America Corp. "For decades, BenQ has been committed to helping schools build future-ready classrooms that keep pace with the rapid evolution of technology and create new pathways to learning. We are thrilled to be selected by Tech & Learning's esteemed judges for recognizing all the thoughtfulness and expertise our team of engineering and education specialists has poured into creating these new classroom innovations."
BenQ's EW800ST Smart Interactive Classroom Projector is an Android-based, high-resolution, high-brightness smart projector that transforms traditional classrooms into blended learning spaces — an approach half of all schools have adopted. Providing long-lasting, uninterrupted instruction with Dust Guard technology and Lamp Save mode, the short-throw projector lets teachers and students break away from one-way lecturing mode and overcome challenges posed by location, tools, and course content. Students can explore lessons on devices they're familiar with, communicate and share freely, as well as collaborate with others. A new concept for classroom projection, EW800ST offers personal account control and cloud services integration via the BenQ Account Management System (AMS), allowing teachers individualized access to lesson plans and educational materials in cloud storage. It also includes X-Sign Broadcast, a centralized messaging and display scheduling system, and BenQ's Device Management Solution (DMS), which permits IT and tech staff to easily manage districtwide deployments with over-the-air firmware updates from a centralized location.
BenQ's unique InstaShow S WDC20 screen-mirroring system is the only classroom presentation system of its kind to make collaboration truly intuitive, simple, and secure. Educators and students simply plug the InstaShow transmitter into their device and tap to share content. There is no software requirement or network connection, preventing a potential threat to an organization's network or laptops. InstaShow safeguards content and the network by encrypting the signals using advanced 128-bit algorithms and featuring protection that prevents hackers from using the LAN connection to break into the network. Not only was the system rigorously tested by Onward Security — a leading cybersecurity provider — and certified as having no critical and high-risk security vulnerabilities as based on the Common Vulnerability Scoring System, version 3.0, it also meets the requirements for emerging U.S. data privacy regulations. InstaShow differentiates itself with affordability, completely app-free design, 4K resolution, and the ability to present up to four devices (computers, phones, and tablets) simultaneously on the display. It supports up to 32 different input sources or users — the highest on the market — making it the ideal collaboration solution for the entire class as well as a cost-efficient and wireless alternative to traditional wired HDMI switching that many classrooms now require.
