TAMPA BAY, Fla. November 20, 2018 — TeamViewer®, a global leader in secure remote connectivity solutions, today announced its cooperation with BenQ, a leading technology and solutions provider, in order to provide better support, control and collaboration on displays and flat panels from BenQ’s product portfolio.
With this partnership, both TeamViewer and Blizz by TeamViewer will become listed as recommended software on BenQ’s website, and be available pre-installed in BenQ devices through product bundling. In addition, the TeamViewer QuickSupport App can be downloaded onto the devices from the TeamViewer website.
Remote access, control and support on digital signage via TeamViewer
BenQ’s line of digital signage will now be pre-installed with TeamViewer’s QuickSupport agent for Android, enabling the administrator to remotely access the functionality of the displays from his or her workstation anywhere, at any time. Whether the displays are used for advertising messages, menus or signposts in restaurants or hotels, for special offers in retail, or as an information board in a corporate environment – with TeamViewer, admins get access to an easy-to-use solution for monitoring, control and support of BenQ displays from afar to swiftly resolve issues on the devices in a time and cost-effective manner, saving them a trip to the physical machine.
Conferencing & Collaboration on interactive flat panels with Blizz by TeamViewer
In addition, BenQ’s interactive flat panels will come equipped with TeamViewer’s Blizz Collaboration Companion, giving users access to Blizz’ logged and indexed team messaging, face-to-face HD VoIP video and audio calling, instant or scheduled group meetings (for up to 300 people), and screen sharing capabilities — essential meeting tools needed to communicate and collaborate better with teams and clients, from anywhere, at any time. (Please note: The use of Blizz audiovisual features requires the use of a special camera with microphone, and a USB cable for connecting to your BenQ interactive flat panel.)
“We are excited to enter this partnership with BenQ, as this will enable our customers to remotely manage and reduce the downtime of their digital signage and help improve communication and collaboration through interactive flat panels – regardless if they are being used in a commercial, corporate or even educational environment,” says Oliver Steil, CEO at TeamViewer.
“Today’s evolving presentation and collaboration needs require visual tools that make participation simple and effective,” says Conway Lee, president of BenQ Corporation. “We are happy to combine our cutting-edge display expertise with TeamViewer’s remote support and collaboration capabilities in order to provide presentation and collaboration experiences that are fun, reliable and productive right out of the box.”
