Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, today announces its high performance interactive LCD presentation solution, the PN-L601B touch-screen LCD monitor. The innovative 60-inch (diagonal) class model allows users to display and mark digital images or scanned documents for presentation purposes via a bright and attractive screen. The model’s accurate touch-screen response and easy-to-use original pen software gives any office, business or school the ideal tool for visually sharing interactive communication during meetings, video conferencing, presentations or classroom instruction. Energy efficient and ENERGY STAR® qualified, this model is also ideal for a wide array of high impact digital signage applications.

The 60-inch class LCD panel is equipped with Sharp’s UV2A photo alignment and Full Array LED backlight technologies to create an evenly-lit bright and energy-efficient screen that is easy to read in most environments regardless of ambient lighting levels. The PN-L601B’s accurate touch-screen response is made possible by Sharp’s infrared detection system, which uses multiple infrared sensors to pinpoint the location of the user’s onscreen finger or touch pen movements to virtually eliminate the perception of misalignment.

“Sharp is a recognized leader in both the LCD panel and office product categories, and the PN-L601B is the innovative result of combining our vast resources and experience in each area,” said Steve Brauner, senior product planning manager for professional displays. “The PN-L601B offers high performance and seamless integration into an organization’s presentations and workflow.”

Sharp developed intuitive pen software specifically for the PN-L601B with a user-friendly interface that enables the selection of pen colors and eraser functions with a click of the touch pen button. Once images are displayed on the screen, users can draw directly on them with a touch pen or their finger to quickly make notes and reference marks. These images, with notations, can then be saved as a file on a PC or printed via a connected Sharp multifunction product (MFP). Connecting the PN-L601B to a Sharp MFP with color scanning function also enables documents and images to be easily scanned and displayed on the PN-L601B via the pen software.

The PN-L601B is certified for 24/7 operation, with a three year onsite parts and labor limited warranty. ENERGY STAR®qualified, this model is designed to be both exceptionally reliable and environmentally friendly.

The PN-L601B will be available in November through Sharp’s network of dealers, distributors and VARs for $13,195 MSRP.
