We live in an age where we can communicate with people across continents in seconds. Despite this, many still struggle to connect with people right in front of us, whether it’s in a boardroom, brainstorm session, or client presentation. Technology can clearly make presentations more enticing, but many of us still use tools like slideshows and paper flipcharts, which have become overused and outdated because they lack interactivity, shareability and even scalability.

Enter the Samsung Flip. Samsung managed to retain the basic function of a board but has added convenience, efficiency and an array of digital functionality. While it has the look and feel of a flipchart, it is a large digital screen that helps create interactive presentations.

It features an ultra-high definition LCD mobile display – a flipchart that drives collaboration and expands presentation capabilities, with a touchscreen that allows users to display work, graphics and AV material, as well as write and save notes. 

“Samsung seamlessly integrates business environments and adapts to changing business needs,” says Reginald Nxumalo, Director: B2B, Samsung South Africa. “With its user-centric approach, Samsung has made business technologies simple and easy to use, enabling businesses to adapt to the evolving business environment. ” 

Those with a laptop, tablet or smartphone can mirror their screens to share content. Notes and ideas from a brainstorm can also be recapped and shared, using built-in email, distributed over a network, or saved to USB storage.
