The essential mainstay of group huddles and official boardrooms, the quintessential whiteboard hasn’t evolved for aeons since its inception with a decades long legacy of ink-stained fingers to show for it across generations of office desk jockeys. Fortunately, Samsung has offered a novel tech twist to the age-old office mainstay and have come up with the Samsung Flip, a teched up digital whiteboard that takes work meetings and huddles to the next level.
First revealed earlier this year at CES 2018, the Samsung Flip WM55H digital board consists of a massive 55-inch touchscreen with 3,840 x 2,160 pixels that enables you to do everything you can do on a traditional digital whiteboard – draw, doodle and write, you name it – be it via your fingers or a stylus.
Up to four users can doodle away simultaneously oncreen. Rather than a whiteboard eraser, you can simply use your palm to swipe away typos oncreen. The board is responsive enough that an artist was able to draw a surprisingly good portrait freehand which makes it a proposition for more creative types as a digital easel for. The best part? No ink-stained fingers and not having to hunt for the whiteboard eraser and having to contend with markers that have run out of ink midway through a presentation.
The Flip digital whiteboard is emplaced on a sturdy stand that lets you use it horizontally or vertically with the option to adjust the height as needed while a set of rollers lets you easily move it around and about the office.
The Samsung Flip runs their Tizen 3.0 OS under the hood and has the ability to save up to 20 pages of notes and doodles with the option to share them to other users via wi-fi, print it out through the office printer or save them to offline storage via a a pair of USB 2.0 ports and an integrated HDMI port. You’re also able to mirror content off a phone, notebook or slate, which makes presentations heaps easier. The Samsung Flip is available nationwide in Malaysia for RM12,999.
