Korea based consumer electronics giant Samsung has showcased the latest version of its Flip interactive design. The company said that it has improved the writing recognition technology in its Flip 2019 interactive white boards.

Jae-gwang Lee from Samsung Visual Display, the developer of this product, said, “Similar to the previous model, the 2019 Samsung Flip has light colors to make sure it feels accessible and usable for people. The product uses light colors, particularly a light gray color to be well harmonized not only in offices and meeting rooms but also in trendy meeting spaces.”

Viewsonic currently offers interactive screens in India in various sizes. The market for these digital white boards seems to be increasing as more educational instituions and corporate business houses have started adopting to these.

Normal pens can be used to write on Samsung Flip

Though Samsung provides a passive pen without electronic components inside, rather than an active pen with electric circuits, to write on the borad, it also claims that users can replace it with other objects such as a pen, pencil or even small sticks instead. Samsung’s official statement read, “The 2019 Samsung Flip has an enhanced ability to recognize the thickness of writing objects and reflect the thickness on the display.”

It continued, “Additionally, the new brush mode of the 2019 Samsung Flip is another fresh and innovative concept. It emphasizes more detail by allowing recognition touch on the display in 1,024 detailed levels. It even recognizes the most delicate touch of a brush.”

Screen share feature

The 2019 Samsung Flip, as per the company, can be connected to a bigger display through the screen share function. Consumers can use a wireless connection or the screen share terminal of the connected tray in front of the 2019 Samsung Flip to connect the two displays using a HDMI cable.

Samsung said that Flip was originally targeted to architectural design offices and design companies where small-scale face to face idea meetings are frequent. And as they wanted to use the product in more diverse areas, the 2019 Samsung Flip’s target has expanded to conglomerate conference halls, large seminar rooms, schools and hotel conference rooms with a larger 65-inch screen and various features.

Company’s official statement read, “The Flip also has the Remote PC function to follow the recent office trend of working on remote desktop computers. The users can access their own desktop or laptop computers from the Flip to view or edit data, which can be seamlessly used in a meeting environment. Also, you can load documents from your personal cloud space using Microsoft OneDrive, Office 365 and Web Browser that are going to be serviced in the Flip from September. The 2019 Samsung Flip is a reassuring partner in a digital meeting environment.”

Jae-young Kim, product planner at Samsung Visual Display, said, “The 2019 Samsung Flip offers a smart office and modern work environment where users can rapidly capture ideas, share them with other people and save them without any difficulties.”
