Samsung Electronics America announced the Samsung Flip 2 digital interactive display, the newest addition to the Flip lineup. It’s available in two sizes, 55 inch and 65 inch, both 4K resolution (3840×2160). According to Samsung, the models are widely considered to be ergonomic and have an aesthetically pleasing design. The 55-inch model offers a hinge assembly structure and wheels for an efficient, portable solution that can transform any location into a huddle room, adding flexibility for businesses with limited conference space. With a light/slim stand, the Flip 2 is simple to work with and allows for multiple units to nest when not in use. The 65-inch model has a larger screen that can be used as the primary display in a meeting room, while the no-gap wall mount removes space between the display and the wall, allowing for easy and clean installation.
The Flip 2’s menu simplifies navigation and has a quick finder feature (think: Apple Finder). Users can preview content and make instant changes directly on the screen. By clicking the note layer button, users can write anywhere on any content displayed without affecting work behind the original layer. Flip users can also access up to 20 pages of writing space with embedded search functionalities available to instantly direct participants to specific content. This continuous, rolling stream eliminates lost time and interruptions that often result from searching through multiple sheets of paper or lines of notes to locate a specific detail.
The Flip 2 claims smooth/familiar pen-to-paper-like writing in a variety of colors, styles and widths, while “brush mode” allows users to create art at the stroke of a brush in watercolor and oil painting modes. Up to four people can write simultaneously and erase drawings with a finger or palm swipe, enabling teams to collaborate in real-time. Each user can customize his or her writing style, size and color.
Samsung Flip 2 gives users the ability to open Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Excel and PDF files directly with a built-in document viewer. The Samsung Flip 2 can also be a calendar, scheduler, note or checklist board. Each Flip 2 display can configure to portrait or landscape orientations and with its height-adjustable stand, the Flip 2 is ADA compliant. Users can project content on the Flip 2 to another sizeable digital display in real-time, using a Wi-Fi Direct or HDMI out connection. USB, HDMI, NFC and wireless connection capabilities provide interactive content visibility, notation and sharing. Following any meeting, users can distribute recaps to all attendees and colleagues, removing the time frustration traditionally associated with handwritten meeting notes. The Flip 2 stores conversations and content in real-time, and they’re easily shareable across mobile and digital channels.
