Goodbye, whiteboard. At least the analogue type we scribble on with non-permanent markers, or chalkboards. Unveiled earlier in the year at CES 2018, the Samsung Flip – a 55-inch interactive whiteboard is set to transform the meeting room and how people collaborate in Malaysia.
The aptly-named Samsung Flip is the modern day collaborative tool that’s designed for meeting/board meetings, and it can be flipped between portrait and horizontal orientations.
The 55-inch 4K UHD E-LED display also comes with a height-adjustable stand that enables it to be wheeled around the room freely.
In essence, the Samsung Flip doesn’t take away the standard paper flip charts, sticky notes, marker pens and analogue boards. Instead, it takes the concept, digitises it, makes it easy to multi-task in a multi-user environment, as well as offering flexibility and connectivity.
The screen itself is a 55-inch 60Hz E-LED with a 4K UHD resolution (3840×2160) and offers up to 300 nits of brightness. It comes with dual 10W speakers and offers HDMI 1, USB 2, RJ-45 port and NFC for connectivity.
So, it’s easy to connect a PC or notebook PC, smartphones and tablets to the display. It also has integrated screen-sharing functionality which makes it easy to share content from device to screen.
The display itself can be mounted on a moving stand or mounted on the wall via a VESA mount.
Under the hood, it uses a quad-core CPU mated to 3GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. The Flip runs the proprietary Kant-M platform based on Tizen OS 3.0.
With the Flip, up to four different people can introduce content or annotate directly on the screen simultaneously, using either their fingers or a passive dual-sided pen.
It’s easy to write, draw, annotate on the screen, and erasing is as easy as doing a palm swipe. You can access up to 20 pages of writing space, and it also comes with a handy embedded search functionality.
In terms of security, the Flip securely stores content within a central database when your meeting is done. There’s a password-based protection system that safeguards meeting details and ensures only authorised users can access the content.
When you’re logged in, you can download and share content through email, or get it printed to a connected printer. Alternatively, you can save meeting notes into a USB drive or any other external storage sources.
