After long anticipation, Sharp Commercial has finally released its next generation of the Aquosboard. It has been 3 years since the current models hit the market. Sharp Aquosboards have made a great impact on the market, taking market share away from similar products, due to its features and versatility in different applications. The next generation builds upon the same open architecture as the previous version (60” PN-L603B and 70” PN-L703B), which makes them agnostic to most software applications out there. Plus, Sharp does not require a software product key to use it like many other manufacturers.

With 3 HDMI inputs, input cards are no longer needed for additional AV connections (unlike the previous models). Along with all these great features of these boards there is also a new version of Sharps free Pen software 3.0. A more streamlined and enhanced version of the free pen software 3.0 increases the capability to support multi touch, search & import images from the web and use of MS Office (without licensing fees).
These Aquosboards have gained a lot of popularity in the education market, along with teaching hospitals. They have become more and more popular in the corporate board rooms for video conferencing and collaboration. With the pen software, you can jot down ideas, save the file as a PDF and email it to colleagues or customers working on the same project. Sharp is primarily known for it’s display hardware and technology. However, Sharp also excels in software development that compliments hardware products. This is something to take note when specifying a project, do you want your hardware from a company that specializes in software or an Aquosboard which is made by Sharp a company that specializes in hardware.
