A cursory search for interactive whiteboards fast reveals that the competition is simply no match for Sharp’s 70” PN-L702B interactive display. Traditional whiteboards are static, requiring dry erase markers, which dry out and eventually discolor the board. Although more advanced whiteboards allow for the printing of notes and diagrams, they lack fluidity and interactive interplay. For true interactive whiteboards, most competitors use projection systems, which cast shadows and often shine in the eyes of presenters. Naturally, this impedes the speaker’s ability to read to their audience. Sharp’s whiteboard is the perfect solution for digital presentations as you’ll see in the demo video below.

Sharp’s new PN-L702B Interactive Whiteboard overcomes these traditional pitfalls and adds heretofore-unprecedented capabilities and flexibility. Measuring in at 69-1/2″ on the diagonal, the 70″ class interactive whiteboard provides the perfect medium to communicate… collaborate, and… disseminate.
At the heart of the PN-L702B is a full HD (1920 x 1080) color LED-LCD panel. Full-array LED backlighting provides uniform brightness, enhanced reliability and greater legibility of text. Sharp’s UV2A photo alignment technology further enhances the whiteboard’s ability to render brilliant color images for maximum impact. The energy-efficient screen also boasts a dual-touch interface, which makes the 70” interactive display a true multipurpose business tool.
Sharp’s “Pen Software™ Application” enables the PN-L702B to be used as a digital whiteboard. For the purposes of accuracy, usability and precision, the PN-L702B boasts multiple infrared sensor detection touch points. With a simple touch pen, or the tip of your finger, you can open and close documents or make hard copy printouts. With two fingers you can enlarge, reduce or rotate an image. Compatible with Windows® 7, Sharp’s intuitive “Pen Software™ Application” enables the importation of Microsoft® Office® documents, including PowerPoint® presentations.
By connecting the PN-L702B to a Sharp network-connected MFP (multifunction product), documents may be scanned from the MFP and imported directly to the “Pen Software” for display on the PN-L702B. Image data can also be saved to a PC or sent to an MFP for printout. For full-scale compatibility, the following standard interfaces are incorporated into the PN-L702B:
- HDMI® Input D-Sub 15-Pin RGB Input
- Stereo Audio Input
- Stereo Audio Line-Output
- RS-232C Input/Output
For maximum versatility, purchasers may also want to consider the purchase of the optional input/output expansion board (PN-ZB01). The PN-ZB01 Expansion Board enables the PN-L702B Whiteboard to connect with audio/video devices equipped with the following interfaces:
- DVI-D Input/Output
- 5-BNC Analog RGB Input
- Component Video Input
- S-Video Input
- Composite Video
Finally, to orchestrate the entire system, customers may also want to consider either of Sharp’s optional “Whiteboard Personal Computers” (PCs). Both PCs easily attach to the rear of the display for an all-in-one interactive display solution. You can choose one or both of Sharp’s “Whiteboard Personal Computers”:
- The PN-TPC1W7: Atom™ 330 dual-core whiteboard PC with Windows® 7 Pro
- The PN-TPC2W7: Pentium® dual-core whiteboard PC with Windows® 7 Pro
For convenience and savings, Sharp has made the entire system available as a bundle, the PN-L702B-PKG. The PN-L702B-PKG includes all of the following:
- PN-L702B Display
- PN-TPC1W7 Whiteboard PC, and
- PN-SR760M Rolling Cart Floor Stand
Perfect for collaborative projects, the high-definition PN-L702B Whiteboard allows information to be shared, displayed, annotated and stored, all with the convenience of a touch-screen. For sketching, a user-friendly tool bar allows the user to select a variety of drawing options with a simple tap of an icon. Sharp’s 70” Interactive Whiteboard also features a built-in library of backgrounds for use during presentations. The helpful backgrounds include a calendar, meeting log, to-do list, action plan and graph paper. The backgrounds help bolster whiteboard presentations because they eliminate the need to create hand-written forms and/or data templates. In short, the PN-L702B Interactive Whiteboard provides the perfect platform to create work plans, highlight key topics, annotate files and more. When finished, you can share marked-up documents and/or print hard copies for future reference.
Sharp’s brilliant, big screen displays also provide you with the reliability and durability needed for your round-the-clock business or in a classroom environment. With their commercial design, these displays are certified for 24/7 use. The attention grabbing displays are perfect for digital signage in public areas like trade show exhibit halls, hotel lobbies and conference areas, airport corridors and retail locations. You can even use the PN-L702B display as an interactive signage monitor to help people find their way.
The versatility of the PN-L702B interactive display doesn’t end there. It can be used for command and control, data viewing and a data display for presentations. Use it as a remote collaboration tool to conduct online webinars and video conferences. In short, Sharp’s 70” Interactive Whiteboard is perfect for any and all interactive applications. For versatility and performance in business meetings, teleconferences, whiteboard presentations, training/classroom instruction and high-impact signage, there’s never been a better time to think BIG – and think Sharp.
