Anoto and Ingram Micro Seal Distribution Agreement for Anoto Live Displays and Other Collaboration Solutions

LUND, Sweden and SAN JOSE, Calif. – March 9, 2016 – Anoto Group AB, a global leader in digital writing and drawing solutions, today announced that it has signed an agreement with Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM), a Fortune 100 company that delivers a full spectrum of global technology and supply chain services to businesses around the world, to distribute the Anoto Live Display and other enterprise collaboration solutions. Recently unveiled at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2016, the Anoto Live 55” 4K Display offers support for the company’s high-precision digital pens alongside interactive ultra-responsive multi-touch capabilities. The agreement with Ingram Micro provides access to a global market of technology buyers within the SMB and enterprise channels, creating significant growth opportunities as more businesses use technology to add scale, enhance services, and improve productivity. Ingram Micro will serve as the first distribution partner authorized to market, sell and support Anoto’s Collaboration Solutions.

“We recently introduced our Anoto Live Displays at ISE 2016 in response to market demand for interactive 4K display technologies that enhance business collaboration in Unified Communications & Collaboration (UCC) environments. The feedback thus far has been very strong,” said Stein Revelsby, CEO of Anoto. “Our distribution alignment with Ingram Micro is a testament to this market response, and we look forward to building momentum together with our full suite of multi-surface digital writing and drawing solutions.”

Anoto Live Display integrates support for the company’s high-precision digital pens with Cima NanoTech’s SANTE ProTouch module for ultra-responsive projected capacitive touch screens. Anoto Live Displays also feature ultra-responsive multi-touch technology, a scratch resistant 4K resolution screen, a UC-agnostic modular design to allow custom camera and audio solutions (Lync®, Cisco®, Zoom, etc.), and the flexibility to work with any standard enterprise and office productivity software application. The first model in the line, the 55-inch screen, will open for pre-orders soon, with initial shipments to customers projected for Q2 2016.

“The capabilities and flexible nature of the Anoto Live Display and Anoto’s other collaboration form factors make this a compelling addition to our display and UCC’s offerings,” said Kevin Prewett, senior director, Advanced Solutions, Ingram Micro. “Anoto’s integrated software and the ability to bring pen-and-paper into the digital collaboration experience showcases thought leadership and innovation. These advances, in conjunction with Ingram Micro’s growing channel partner reach, will ensure that businesses can implement a variety of technologies that help increase efficiency, productivity and profitability.”
