New FX Duo Wireless Kit Offers Freedom and Mobility for Hitachi StarBoard X Duo Interactive Whiteboard Integrators and End-Users

Hitachi Software Engineering America, Ltd. today introduced a new FX Duo Wireless Kit for its StarBoard FX Duo-series interactive whiteboards at InfoComm 08 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The unit is an add-on wireless device that enables the boards to wirelessly connect with users’ PCs.

The FX Duo Wireless Kit is a compact unit weighing less than a pound with about the same footprint as a small DSL cable modem. When plugged into the FX Duo’s USB port, the wireless kit emits a WIFI 802.11g signal, which the PC can then pick up and use to connect to the board. This enables complete control of content on the board as usual, without any wires running between the PC and the board.

“At Hitachi, we’re always looking for ways to expand the usage of our interactive whiteboards,? explained John Glad, Product Manager for Hitachi Business Group. “The FX Duo Wireless Kit opens up a whole new world of freedom for our users. They can connect with their boards across large rooms or lecture halls, and set up their PC wherever they please.?

The FX Duo Wireless Kit can easily be installed using instructions provided along with Windows Connect Now Support. StarBoard FX Duo users simply install the new software, plug the wireless kit into a wall outlet, and connect the FX Duo to the unit via USB cable. They can then locate the board wirelessly using the installed software on their PC.

Using the FX Duo Wireless Kit, presenters and educators have the freedom to place their laptops anywhere in the room. The unit increases the range of connection for rooms where there is significant space between the PC and FX Duo Board.

Additionally, the FX Duo Wireless Kit increases the functionality of the boards. The wireless kit simplifies setup, allowing for a neat and flexible installation that decreases the need for wires and frees USB ports in the PC. In addition, a board equipped with a wireless kit and a rolling stand can be made mobile—perfect for schools or offices that want to be able to use a single board in multiple places.
