TDMaverick announces introduction of Promethean ActivPanel and ActivBoard Touch; The touch-sensitive panel adds a new dimension to Promethean product range
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Basingstoke - TDMaverick, the exclusive distributor of Promethean solutions in the UK and Ireland, has announced the launch of the companys new touch-sensitive solutions, the much anticipated ActivPanel and ActivBoard Touch.
The ActivPanel six-point touch interactive flat-panel, backlit LED display is available in 65-inch and 70-inch options, both shipping with the companys ActivInspire classroom software. It offers full 1080p HD resolution for crystal clear images while the built-in amplifier and stereo speakers deliver superb sound quality. The use of acid-etched glass ensures a smooth and natural writing experience, while infra-red technology provides precise pen and touch control, even in bright sunlight.
The ActivBoard Touch brings together intuitive touch interactivity and Prometheans award-winning software to offer an innovative dual-user interactive whiteboard solution, at a price that will suit even the most cost-conscious schools. Available as a 78-inch or 88-inch mount system with an extreme-short, ultra-short or short-throw projector, it provides teachers with a fast and precise interactive environment that makes the very best use of the touch capabilities of Microsoft Windows 8.
Wayne Perkins, Promethean Business Manager at Maverick, says: These exciting and innovative new Promethean solutions show their commitment to producing quality technology for the classroom. The precision and responsiveness offered by the ActivPanel combined with Prometheans award-winning software will be a huge draw for schools looking for an interactive panel solution.
Perkins notes that, the ActivPanel is the only interactive display on the market to come complete with Prometheans award-winning software AcitvInspire. ActivInspire enables teachers to bring lessons to life with rich, powerful activities that grab the attention of the whole class, blending real-time assessment and real-world experience into the learning process.
