Advanced Teams Up with Google and BenQ to Launch New Google Jamboard in Canada

A demonstration of Google Jamboard will be held at the Advanced Experience Center’s Technology Day on September 20th, 2017.

ONTARIO, CANADA, August 28, 2017 — Continuing its efforts to promote the integration of innovative collaborative technologies into corporate and educational spaces, North America’s leading AV and collaboration technology solution provider Advanced today announced a new collaboration with Google and BenQ to distribute Google Jamboard throughout Canada.

“We are honored to have been selected to bring the cutting-edge Google Jamboard to Canadian schools and corporate facilities,” Advanced Executive Vice President Mark McPherson said today. “Basic whiteboards are used in schools and offices everywhere, but whiteboards don’t store progress. They don’t bring the entire classroom, or team, into the conversation. Jamboard brings whiteboards into the future with cloud storage, real-time collaboration tools like those in G Suite, as well as access to the endless information available through Google Search. It makes collaboration easier and more productive than ever before.”

Google Jamboard is a 55-inch, 4K display on which users can write, explore and import content on the web, and save their sketches and brainstorms to the cloud. Users can draw on the board with a stylus that requires no batteries or pairing, and they can erase either with the eraser or with their fingers, the same way they could on a whiteboard. Jamboard has the same real-time collaboration tools as G Suite, allowing multiple people to access the board through touch, additional Jamboards, or simply through the Jamboard app for phone or tablet.

“Advanced is committed to making unique collaboration technology tools available to users at every level, and this cooperation with Google and BenQ is a testament to our commitment to make this a reality,” concluded McPherson. “Anyone interested in how Google Jamboard can benefit their operations can experience a live demonstration at Advanced’s Open House taking place on September 20th. Customers will be able to see firsthand just how much Jamboard can revolutionize and increase collaboration and productivity in the workplace or educational spaces.”
