Panaboard Interactive Whiteboards Integrate Stereo Audio Systems

Panasonic has released three new models in its Panaboard line of interactive audio and video whiteboards.

The three new models--the Elite Panaboard UB-T81W, UB-T81, and UB-T761--are electronic whiteboards that include an integrated stereo sound system, enhanced text and graphics, and onboard streaming media playback compatibility, including SWF, AVI, WMV, MPEG-2, and other formats.

Other features common to all of the new models include:

  • Built-in screen capture that includes the ability to record all operations performed on the board, along with audio (using a separate mic or computer);
  • Compatibility with Mac OS X- and Windows-based computers;
  • Computer control via the whiteboard through an onscreen keyboard;
  • Integrated drawing tools;
  • Panasonic's Fine Enamel anti-reflective screen;
  • Automatic saving of text and graphics; and
  • Spotlight mode for highlighting a specific portion of the screen.

The UB-T761 offers a 64-inch (diagonal) screen size, the UB-T81 a 77-inch screen size, and the UB-T81W an 83-inch screen size.

The new Panaboards are available now. Pricing information was not available at press time. Further details can be found here.
