ScreenBeam Touch 90
Actiontec Electronics has introduced the ScreenBeam Touch 90, a 90-inch whiteboard that can be accessed simultaneously by both teachers and students from anywhere in the classroom, using virtually any device with Windows 10 capabilities.
"The ScreenBeam Touch 90 reinvents the paradigm for whiteboard use in schools and other shared environments," said Mike Ehlenberger, Actiontec's vice president for global channels, in a prepared statement. "When everyone in the room has direct access to the whiteboard — instead of just the people standing in front of it — you create a more interactive and distributed environment for collaboration. Then, when you eliminate the wires, you remove the hurdles of joining that conversation."
While the ScreenBeam Touch 90 is an interactive digital whiteboard with wireless display technology, it can be purchased in conjunction with the ScreenBeam Enterprise 950, which enables users to view content on the whiteboard on their own screens as well as the whiteboard itself.
Other features of the ScreenBeam Touch 90 include:
- 16:9 aspect ratio;
- USB power supply;
- The ability to use a dry eraser; and
- Software that allows remote writing erasing, dragging, screen shooting and recording and handwriting recognition.
The ScreenBeam Enterprise 950 features:
- 1080p30 resolution;
- Surround sound;
- HDMI and VGA connections; and
- Supports Windows 7, 8.1 and 10.
ScreenBeam Touch 90 and ScreenBeam Enterprise 950 are available from Actiontec's authorized dealers. Actiontec is exhibiting at the ISTE 2016 conference in Denver this week in booth 1123. For more information, go to the Actiontec site.
