 S&L Selected as First Google Jamboard Dealer in the US

 S&L Selected as First Google Jamboard Dealer in the United States

(Thomasville, Ga. September, 2017) In late August S&L Integrated finalized a deal with manufacturer BenQ and Google to be the first AV integrator to offer Jamboard to customers in the United States. The Google Jamboard is a 55-inch 4k whiteboard touch-screen system, incorporating the G-suite cloud-based software and storage solutions. Anything a user creates on the Jamboard will be accessible virtually from anywhere. Google’s approach for creating this solution was to develop a whiteboard solution that is built around the cloud.

The looks of the Jamboard are different from most interactive touch boards. For starters, its chassis is available in a variety of colors: carmine red, slate grey, and cobalt blue. It also comes with two passive, battery-free stylus pens along with an eraser and color-matching single-cable connection. An optional rolling stand is available in white with aesthetics to match the smooth, rounded corners of the screen’s bezel. A wall mount is also available with color-matched accessory tray. Jamboard was named Best In Show at Infocomm 2017 by AV Integrator and Audio Video Integrator magazines.

The Jamboard merges the shareability of Google with the interactivity of a digital whiteboard. G-Suite includes Google’s popular apps: Gmail, Hangouts, Calendar, Google+, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Forms, Slides, Sites, Admin, and Vault. Along with the Jamboard app for desktop, tablet, and mobile, team members can add to the board wherever they are.  All boards are saved directly to Google Drive so you can share and access them anytime.

Features of the Jamboard include an 4K UHD display, 120Hz interactive touch scan rate, 60 Hz video refresh rate, HDMI 2.0, USB Type C , 2 X USB 3.0, SPDIF audio out, WIFI 802.11ac 2×2, NFC, one gigabyte ethernet, Google Cast, built-in wide-angle camera, down-firing speakers, and built-in microphones. The screen features 16 simultaneous touch points, handwriting and shape recognition, two fine tip passive stylus, microfiber cloth, and eraser.

The Jamboard is for any business or educational institution where collaboration is key for success. Contact an S&L sales representative to set up a demo today and learn how the Google Jamboard from BenQ can increase collaboration in your environment.

In this illustration, feedback is represented by the output coming from a ceiling mounted monitor feeding back into a microphone with a cardiod pattern. Although feedback can’t be completely eliminated, it can be managed by using a properly placed loudspeaker designed specifically as a floor monitor or using an in-ear type personal monitor system.

There are multiple factors that contribute to audio feedback. The next Tech Tip issue will address microphones.
