On-screen Menu Bar Keeps You In Control

With the BF1 Series, everything is to hand in a discreet menu bar at the bottom of the screen that offers instant access to source inputs, whiteboard tools, and other controls you use most frequently. Even when the pressure's on, you'll look like a pro.

Makes Notes Fast

Easy to Save and Share

Produce up to 100 pages*1 of work on the whiteboard and save them to the built-in memory*2 or USB thumb drive as JPEG image files. You can also copy data stored on internal memory to a USB drive, or send your pages as image files directly from the screen via email*3. Keeping everyone in the loop is simple.

*1: With built-in memory setting to ON. When individual file data size is large, the number of pages that can be saved may decrease.
