WEST CALDWELL, N.J., June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ricoh Americas Corporation is demonstrating a brand new line of AV solutions that enable anywhere, anytime data sharing at InfoComm 2012 on June 13-15 in Las Vegas at booth #C5735. This year, Ricoh is demonstrating to the AV industry a host of new products that are portable, cost-efficient solutions for the corporate and education settings.

"Ricoh is developing new ways to manage and share data in the business and classroom environments with new advancements in video communications and projector technologies," says Yuki Uchida, Vice President, New Business Development, Ricoh Americas Corporation. "The new line of AV products has been designed to provide solutions to problems that have slowed down communications and data sharing in the work place. New products like our portable video conferencing system and ultra short throw projector are focused on improving workflow and productivity from the home office, to the conference room, to the classroom."

These AV products support Ricoh's overall mission to provide a comprehensive portfolio of business information services to its customers. The products provide innovative ways to capture information, process it (via the cloud or on the premises), and distribute it to the right people at the right time, whether through video projection, wireless transmission, or another format.   

InfoComm 2012 boasts more than 925 exhibitors showcasing thousands of products, over 300 education sessions taught by the industry's most respected experts and over 34,000 AV pros from all around the world.  

Located at booth #C5735, Ricoh will feature the following technologies which are designed to work together to provide an integrated, connected work environment:

Video Conferencing
Connecting up to 20 participants at once with the push of a button, the P3000 Unified Communication System device provides a secure and easy-to-use portable video conferencing solution at a fraction of the cost of fixed-room videoconferencing systems. It allows users to create a video conference room wherever they are, and puts secure, encrypted, high-end conferencing in the hands of small and medium-sized businesses. It offers far more flexibility than large, permanently installed videoconferencing systems that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and can be complicated to operate. The P3000 only takes about 30 seconds to start a video conference. Just select participants from the address book, push connect and begin conferencing. It offers secure video, voice and data communication capabilities that surpass what most consumer conferencing systems offer.

Digital Interactive Cloud Board
Also on display in the Ricoh booth will be its digital interactive Cloud Board, ideal for use in schools and businesses. Users can write on the board and then immediately share the captured information by sending it to a printer or the cloud for other users to access. Instead of regular paper flip charts and traditional whiteboards that require the manual transfer of notes to an electronic format, the information on the board is now connected to the cloud, helping to unify and streamline the data sharing process.

Ultra Short Throw Projector
Designed to be more portable and take up less space than typical projectors, the new PJ WX4130/PJ WX4130N short throw projector is a perfect example of Ricoh's innovative technology. The projector can be positioned only inches from the wall and project up to an 80" diagonal image, making it the perfect solution for small meeting spaces. Ricoh has developed several interesting applications which take advantage of this short throw feature. Combined with Luidia's eBeam, the PJ WX4130/PJ WX4130N creates an interactive white board solution, and when combined with Scalable Display Technology's edge blending software, it can blend one image across two projectors creating a 12' wide image for digital signage solutions or full interactive white board displays.   

Ricoh Presenter iPad® App
In addition to sharing information via video conferencing and the interactive digital Cloud Board, Ricoh has developed an iPad app that allows a presenter to share an electronic presentation from one iPad to another. Called Ricoh Presenter, the app lets the presenter control the presentation while others follow along on their iPads. Or, if the presenter prefers to project the presentation, he can do so wirelessly by connecting the iPad to a Ricoh network projector. The app will allow the presenter and those viewing the presentation to make notations directly on the iPad, making the changes visable to everyone.
