A Smart New Partner in Innovation

Maximise the Value of Small Meetings to Achieve a Big Change

Sharp’s BIG PAD series makes meetings and communications smoother and more productive. Reinforcing the line-up is the 40-inch PN-40TC1, which offers a fresh approach to boosting the dynamism of business and educational organisations. It’s ideal for meetings of two to six people held in small spaces—the so-called “huddle spaces” where a high proportion of meetings take place in the modern world. Making the most of huddle meetings can transform communications and accelerate business to a whole new level.

Get the Most Out of Your Face-to-Face Interactions

There are times in every day when you need to have some quick face time with a few of your colleagues or clients. It could be for a project update, a brainstorming session, or a business meeting. Every one of these impromptu gatherings can be transformed into a genuinely productive and creative session. All it takes is a little help from the PN-40TC1.

Huddle Spaces

With the PN-40TC1, everyone can engage meaningfully in such small-group meetings by sharing onscreen information. Intuitive touchscreen operation, whether with a finger or pen, facilitates active collaborations and a lively exchange of opinions. And with the optional wireless board, you can also have BYOD meetings. Speedy, productive collaborations become a reality.

Meeting Booths

Set up a PN-40TC1 in your company’s visitor meeting space to transform your interactions with clients and other visitors. Touchscreen functionality helps to bring greater focus and productivity to your interactions. And the PN-40TC1 never has to sit idly by. When not being used in a meeting, it can be used as appealing touchscreen signage displaying corporate ads, notices, and other information.

Learning Areas

In both business and educational settings, the PN-40TC1 enhances collaborations and group learning sessions. SHARP Pen Software works with the PN-40TC1 in both landscape and portrait orientations. This expands the product’s range of usage to cover a variety of settings. For example, the PN-40TC1 can work as a sophisticated bulletin board or flip chart. You can import data to display, write on it freely by hand, and save your handwritten notes digitally for later reuse.

Plug into Convenience and Collaboration

As well as coming standard-equipped with a range of interface terminals such as HDMI and DisplayPort 1.2, the PN-40TC1 includes an expansion slot compatible with the Intel® Mini Open Pluggable Specification (Mini OPS). This slot supports the addition of an optional wireless or HDBaseT receiver board. making more effective use of the PN-40TC1, you get greater convenience and an expanded range of functionality.
