Classroom and presentation applications at the heart of their target audience, uWrite Touch’s new Engage WirelessLCD wants to bust out of the digital whiteboard box. Controlling a PC with a full fledged monitor couldn’t be more intuitive. With a battery life of 3.5 hours, you can complete 3 classroom courses or 4 client pitches. An extended battery will be available for purchase if your needs require more endurance. The touchscreen display only has a 1024×600 resolution but this can be augmented by a second display device attached to the host computer.
The Certified Wireless USB connection is handled by a small USB transmitter. Not a native plug-n-play device, you will need to use the included driver CD to install the LCD as a display. Effective range should be between 20 and 30 feet depending on physical and wireless interference. This relatively short range will limit its applications to smaller venues. Automatic pairing with the USB transmitter make this device much easier to support than ones that require wireless network connections. Pricing hasn’t been released but this will likely be need to be negotiated in bulk and not be a consumer solution just yet.
