SHARP Demonstration Centre

North East AV specialists invest in interactive displays

GPS Installations, a Cramlington-based audio visual specialist, has partnered with an international brand to boost its offering to North East businesses.

The company has partnered with SHARP to provide cutting edge interactive displays, which are slowly replacing dated interactive whiteboards and projectors in the education sector. New interactive displays allow students and teachers to interact and engage with information using a bright high definition display.

GPS Installations' partnership with SHARP will mean they hold full demonstration facilities for the latest SHARP interactive products, including their capacitive (P-CAP) touch technology, which gives a precise, accurate user experience. This technology will mean users can write as freely as if they were using a tablet device.

Aside from promoting interactive usability, the SHARP interactive display will also allow businesses to host a paperless meeting by wirelessly linking laptops, smartphones and tablets, plus presentation support tools that will allow for seamless Powerpoint presentations including SHARP inking software with handwriting recognition. Multiple webcam connection ports also offer easy video communications without the expense. 

Gavin Parks, Director of GPS Installations comments “We are delighted to have partnered with global manufacturer SHARP who were recently acquired by Foxconn Technology Group. Foxconn are the world’s largest electronics manufacturer and there is no company more capable of manufacturing this type of technology.

“Our customers' purchasing decisions were becoming confusing, but they now feel reassured by the SHARP brand and the quality of equipment we can offer, including the aftersales care."

The partnership with SHARP will help North East businesses navigate the emerging technology product and source the best interactive displays. Angela Townsend, sales manager for SHARP UK commented on the relationship, "GPS Installations are well known in the interactive display market in the North East with a reputation for service and installation, we look forward to further developing our partnership for the benefit of our customers."
