Promethean Releases Newest Version of ActivWall System

Promethean has unveiled the newest version of its ActivWall classroom display system.

"Advanced surface technology for the modern classroom, the widescreen surface of the new ActivWall product line is designed as a comprehensive collaborative learning solution, offering multi-touch interactivity, HD viewing and dry-erase writing," according to a news release. "Directly from the home screen, teachers can browse the Web, start a white-boarding session and wirelessly connect to mirror their devices, including smartphones, tablets and laptops to the surface."

Features of the system include:

  • A DLP solid-state projector;
  • Support for 20 touch points and four digital pens;
  • A built-in Web browser;
  • The ability to capture all annotations, slides and notes;
  • Built-in speakers;
  • Wireless mirroring; and
  • Interactive software.

ActivWall's "Surface Segmentation" technology allows the instructor to divide the projection surface into separate work spaces for individuals or small groups to use independent of one another.

"The ActivWall System presents a theatre-like viewing experience in the classroom," said Vincent Young, chief marketing officer for Promethean, in a prepared statement. "This new product line transforms the traditional classroom display into a captivating viewing experience with best-in-class picture performance and full HD resolution. Students are accustomed to this level of technology in their daily lives, and achieving the same level of engagement in the classroom with technology involves meeting students where they are."
