Midwich launches BenQ InstaShow into UK and Ireland channel

Leading trade-only distributor of technology solutions, Midwich, is delighted to announce that it is exclusively handling the new BenQ InstaShow – a unique no-software device that allows multiple presenters to share and project their screens immediately, whether they have brought a laptop, tablet or phone.

With Midwich holding consistently over 30% of BenQ projector sales market share in 20161, the distributor has a long standing and successful relationship with the technology provider, and has already experienced successful market growth with BenQ’s innovative range of home and business products.

Standing for “Bringing Enjoyment ‘N’ Quality to Life”, the BenQ brand makes meetings easier than ever before. Through the new agreement, Midwich corporate and education sector channel partners now have access to a new solution that enables end-users to benefit from the BYOD revolution.

BenQ InstaShow solves a well-known and age-old issue of collaborative presentations. With the touch of a button, the meeting collaboration system allows up to eight participants to instantly share their laptop or device screen in full HD quality. 

Ross Floyd, divisional manager responsible for projection technologies commented: “The addition of BenQ InstaShow to our portfolio is another step in helping our partners to bring exciting and innovative products to their customers. We are always eager for the opportunity to introduce new products from such a forward-thinking vendor. 

“Our existing relationship with BenQ and this new product development is a positive progression for the AV channel, and we believe will help strengthen the BYOD movement currently in place across workplaces in the UK.” 

First showings of BenQ InstaShow were at Midwich’s Technology Exposed event this September, and attracted the attention of over a thousand visitors, both at the show and those who engaged with the live streaming facility.

“BenQ InstaShow is a straight out of the box solution, with no software to download; meaning that it’s easy and quick to set up. Just plug and play,” added Lee Dent, Midwich product management. 

“Working in a busy office environment we know how precious employee time is, which is why we were so keen to be able to provide the channel with BenQ InstaShow. There are so many businesses out there, like us, who don’t have the time to worry about setting up presentations etc. and want a quick and simple to use solution.”

The features which set BenQ InstaShow apart from the competition include:

True Plug and Play: Simply connect BenQ InstaShow into your USB and HDMI ports then push the button to start presenting immediately.

No Software: BenQ InstaShow doesn't need any software installation or execution. There’s no setup, configuration, or waiting for pop-ups to launch. Just plug into your PC or Mac and start presenting immediately.

InstaVideo: A simple push of the side button switches from clear presentation mode to smooth 1080p video mode to quickly customize the viewing experience for precise productivity or seamless streaming video. Exclusively from BenQ, InstaVideo isn’t available anywhere else.
