Ricoh Malaysia rolls out ‘Huddle Room’
By Digital News Asia July 7, 2015
- Integrates its Interactive Whiteboard, UCS and Projector series
- Claims employees within or outside the workplace can share ideas virtually
RICOH (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd has unveiled its Huddle Room concept, which integrates its latest range of high-end visual communications products to allow ‘anytime, anywhere’ work.
The Ricoh Huddle Room enables employees within or outside the workplace to share ideas virtually, quickly, and conveniently with enhanced and seamless communication, the company said in a statement.
The products it encompasses are its Interactive Whiteboard (IWB), Unified Communication Systems (UCS) and Projector series.
“The trend we see today is an increasingly mobile workforce that will minimise cost and unnecessary exhaustion of resources in order to meet the demands of an evolving work style,” said Nick Tan, general manager of marketing at Ricoh Malaysia.
“The need to identify a solution has therefore never been more prominent,” he added.
The IWB D5510 is the new and improved interactive 55-inch full HD 1080p LCD display, Ricoh Malaysia said in its statement.
It has the ability to display the faintest of handwriting and the nuances of detailed drawings, enabling remote sharing with up to eight D5510 units connected via intranet, and easy browsing of up to 20 computer or tablet users, creating an extra dimension for business meetings, presentations and teleconferences, the company claimed.
The ultra-short throw desk projector, the PJ WX4141 series, has a lightweight and compact design, and comes equipped with wired and wireless connectivity.
This allows it to be placed just 11.7cm from the screen and still display vivid images of up to 80 inches in size, transforming the smallest spaces into convenient ad hoc meeting rooms, Ricoh Malaysia said.
Finally, the UCS P3500 (pic) is a dedicated cloud-based portable device ideal for casual or regular meetings, and is designed for high resolution, user-friendly video conferencing, the company said.
It is independently capable of connecting up to 20 sites with nine simultaneous displays. Aside from offering secure screen sharing, the P3500’s easily changeable camera orientation allows the screening of real objects while communicating at the same time, and is inter-connectable with other Ricoh display devices including the IWB and the PJ WX4141 series.
“With an intelligent communications suite, we are able to reduce the cost of communication to extend our customers’ reach without stretching them thin,” said Tan.
“It is the ideal solution for entrepreneurs and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) working off small office units,” he added.
The IWB D5510 starts from RM19,000 onwards, while the UCS P3500 and PJ WX4141 series starts from RM7,000 onwards. [RM1 = US$0.27]
