NEC and DisplayNote Join Forces to Deepen Integration, Expand Features and Reach Corporate Audiences

NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the introduction of NEC DisplayNote Software, a tool that lets educators, students, professionals and others present and share content, and collaborate across any device and platform.

NEC and DisplayNote, a provider of interactive software solutions to integrate PCs, tablet devices and projectors, have expanded their partnership to the U.S. and are now jointly developing deeper integration with the NEC product portfolio.  

Users can annotate, underline, highlight and add notes to a presentation with DisplayNote Software.  They also can send private messages to participants, build work groups, make any participant a presenter, and view a participant’s screen.  The tool works with existing projectors and screens, negating the need to purchase new equipment.  It also works with any education software platform, and the built-in projector control eliminates the need for costly external hardware.

“Our partnership with NEC Display Solutions enables a new wave of multi-user collaboration, one that enhances interaction and convenience,” said Eddie Morgan, Head of Marketing at DisplayNote.  “This solution will not only improve learning outcomes, but also improve the whole learning experience as well as foster new levels of collaborative working.” 

Among the other benefits of DisplayNote Software, audience members can connect to a presenter’s session, capture the displayed content, and save it for future reference.  Participants not only receive the presenter’s annotations, but also can create their own personalized annotations and notes, and save them for future reference.

“DisplayNote Software lets people work on the devices with which they already are familiar and which are driving the mobile revolution,” said Richard McPherson, Sr. Product Manager of projectors for NEC Display Solutions.  “The DisplayNote platform is another example of NEC ingenuity to drive productivity efficiencies in the markets we serve.”

With DisplayNote Software, users can begin a session and open any type of content, be it video, an image, or PowerPoint.  Through the Collaboration Mode feature, groups of devices can work together to share presentations, annotations and images.

In the classroom or training facility, DisplayNote Software allows educators to always be facing students while teaching, and their devices can be passed around the classroom, increasing student interactivity.

NEC DisplayNote Software includes the ability for users to do the following:

  • Present, share and collaborate across any device and platform
  • Annotate, underline, highlight and add notes to a presentation
  • Annotate in real-time over a computer desktop using images on the iPad
  • Send private messages to participants, build work groups, make any participant a presenter and view a participant’s screen
  • Let audience members connect to a presenter’s session, capture the displayed content and save it for future reference
  • Let participants not only receive the presenter’s annotations, but also create their own and save for future reference

NEC DisplayNote Software is compatible across platforms (Windows, Mac and Linux) and compatible with any device (iTunes App Store, Google Play for Android tablets, laptops and smartphones).
