ViewSonic’s Award-Winning Interactive Flat Panel Displays and Projectors to Highlight Collaboration and Sharing Technologies
ORLANDO, FETC, Booth #2123 (Jan. 24, 2017) – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, will highlight the company’s award-winning educational solutions at the FETC (Future of Education Technology Conference), Jan. 24-27, 2017 in Orlando, Fla. ViewSonic’s large format displays, ViewBoard® interactive flat panels, interactive software, and projection solutions provide schools and campuses with the tools that build technologically advanced classrooms. These collaborative learning and teaching products allow students and teachers to create, communicate, and work together.
At the FETC, ViewSonic will highlight products where teamwork is inspired and collaborative sharing is promoted. Using ViewSonic’s ViewBoard interactive flat panel displays, including the 70-inch CDE7061T and 65-inch CDE6561T, the company will demonstrate classroom collaboration using its interactive ViewBoard for Education software and Mersive’s Solstice™ collaboration software. ViewBoard displays can be utilized in Android-, iOS- and Windows-based classroom settings. Also being showcased will be the 55-inch CDE5561T, a 10-point multi-touch ViewBoard with a built-in ARM dual-core CPU and 8GB storage. When mounted on a motorized cart, the CDE5561T can be easily transported, tilted or laid flat to form an interactive table for young learners.
All ViewSonic® ViewBoard interactive flat panel displays, including the CDE7061T and CDE6561T, come with ViewSonic’s exclusive ViewBoard for Education software. The easy-to-use annotation software solution was specifically designed for interactive displays. It allows teachers or students to write, highlight, edit and transform documents and images on-screen in real time, maximizing the capabilities of the interactive display to create more engaging content for collaboration. The software also features many easy-to-use templates for English, Math and Science. By using ViewBoard for Education software, content such as documents and images can be instantly edited and saved in Google drive, then shared in a Google-based classroom.
Solstice Software enables multiple users to easily and simultaneously share content from a range of devices (laptops, tablets, or smartphones) over a Wi-Fi or LAN network. With a Solstice-enabled ViewSonic display or projector in the classroom, a number of students can instantly connect, share, and control content on the display or projector to better facilitate collaboration among students.
The ViewSonic LS830 ultra-short throw laser projector will be at FETC this year. With native 1080p Full HD resolution, 4,500 lumens of brightness and a laser phosphor light source lasting up to 20,000 hours, the LS830 is a great solution for smaller education spaces with big picture needs. Because of its ultra-short throw lens, the LS830 can be placed inches away from a wall or screen to provide a huge image so content can be shared in a big way.
