COSTA MESA, Calif. -- June 26, 2017 --

BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions and the exclusive enterprise partner for Google Jamboard, today announced that Jamboard was recognized with two show awards at InfoComm 2017 in Orlando, Florida. Google and BenQ demonstrated the unique capabilities of the 55", 4K collaborative whiteboard at the show, earning NewBay's Best of Show InfoComm Awards for Sound & Video Contractor and AV Technology magazines.

"These awards reflect not only the design ingenuity of Google Jamboard, but also the incredible attention and dedication to solve performance, productivity and ease-of-use challenges that hinder collaboration today," said Lars Yoder, president at BenQ America Corp.

Google Jamboard is a complete solution for the modern digital workplace. An exclusive headliner of BenQ's interactive flat panel portfolio, Jamboard makes it easy for teams to engage and share ideas. Ideal for the conference room or huddle space or for collaborating with a remote team via the integrated videoconferencing features, Jamboard transforms meetings into an engaging and effective experience, boosting productivity and ultimately improving the bottom line.

Jamboard integrates with G Suite, putting popular Google apps and a whole host of interactive capabilities at users' fingertips during a "jam" session. They can draw, annotate, import and scribble on images and Google Docs, search the web, communicate with colleagues via Hangouts, and it's all saved in the cloud. Users can sketch out plans in real time with teammates from across the globe via other Jamboards or the mobile and tablet apps.

The fully integrated Jamboard comes in three colors -- Carmine Red, Graphite Gray and Cobalt Blue -- with an MSRP of $4,999, which includes a wall mount, two styluses and an eraser. End users can purchase the optional rolling stand for an introductory price of $1,199 (MSRP 1,349) so they can jam on the go between huddle spaces, meeting rooms or offices. An annual $600 management and support fee will be reduced to $300 for purchases made before Sept. 30, 2017.

The Sound & Video Contractor and AV Technology Best of Show InfoComm Awards recognize the most noteworthy and outstanding solutions of the show. They were presented on the InfoComm show floor and were selected by panels of industry experts and editors, as well as by judges' inspection at the convention.
