Panasonic displays increase classroom-boardroom collaboration

Thursday, June 13, 2013

The Panasonic Interactive Displays include integrated pen-touch capabilities via an Electronic Pen System that detects and displays the input device’s position from the light emitted by each of the Full HD (1920x1080) pixels. The system allows up to four pens to be used simultaneously for actions such as written annotation, drawing and moving items independently around the screen. What’s more, the system has a remote pointer function that allows users to point, draw and annotate from up to 16 feet away (85/103PB1 is from up to 26 feet away). Only the pen is detected, so there are no false touches caused by contact with clothing or hands. Because the technology is based on fixed location pixels, the device requires no calibration, which decreases total installation time as well as follow up maintenance. In addition, the pen can be used as a mouse without extra software or driver.

In higher education, Panasonic Interactive Displays are ideal for universities looking to encourage collaboration in smaller classrooms or labs and for use by the athletic department for coaching and game analysis. In K-12 applications, Panasonic Interactive Displays encourage in-classroom, hands-on collaboration as well as artistic creativity. In business environments, the displays are the ideal presentation platform to support and encourage information sharing and collaboration as well as video conferencing with real-time document sharing and editing.
