Samsung Electronics America introduced the Samsung Flip 2 digital interactive display, the newest addition to the Flip lineup, transforming the traditional pen and paper collaboration into a digital experience. Users’ presentations, notes and visuals are taken to the next level with the touch of a digital pen and intuitive user interface. Tailored to meet display demands in hospitality, corporate, education, retail and sports, the Flip 2 helps users bring ideas to life by allowing them to write, design and share ideas.
“Today’s workers require more user-friendly, flexible and innovative technologies to create their best work life,” Harry Patz, SVP/GM, B2B Enterprise Display Division of Samsung Electronics America, said in a statement. “The new Samsung Flip 2 offers enhanced collaboration capabilities to foster creativity and increase productivity for teams, allowing them to work faster, smarter and better.”
Available in two sizes, 55 and 65 inches, both models offer collaborative features in an ergonomic and aesthetic design. The 55-inch model offers a hinge assembly structure and wheels for an efficient, portable solution that can transform any location into a huddle room, adding flexibility for businesses with limited conference space. With a slim and light stand, the Flip 2 is simple to work with and allows for multiple units to be nested when not in use. The 65-inch model provides a larger screen that can be used as the main display in a meeting room, while the no-gap wall mount removes unnecessary space between the display and the wall.

With the quick-finder feature, users can preview content and make instant changes directly on the screen. By clicking the note layer button, users enjoy smooth writing anytime, anywhere on any content displayed without affecting work behind the original layer. Flip users also can access up to 20 pages of writing space with embedded search functionalities available to instantly direct participants to specific content.
Samsung Flip 2 gives users the ability to open Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Excel and PDF files directly with a built-in document viewer, ensuring easy access regardless of the content source. Each Flip 2 display can configure to portrait or landscape orientations to suit unique meeting needs. When coupled with its height-adjustable stand, the Flip 2 also maximizes available writing space at users’ preferred positions. Should a meeting require more centralized, roundtable-style discussion, users can remove and connect the Flip 2 display to a compatible wall mount.
Users can project content on the Flip 2 to another large digital display in real-time, using a Wi-Fi Direct or HDMI out connection. The Flip 2 display can even be shared while connected to a personal device, ideal for large meeting environments. A variety of connection capabilities provide interactive content visibility, notation and sharing. Following any meeting, users can distribute recaps to all attendees and colleagues, removing the time frustration traditionally associated with handwritten meeting notes. Important conversations and content are stored within the Flip 2 in real time, easily shareable across mobile and digital channels.
