stimulating learning environment. Panasonic’s recently-launched LFB70


series of interactive displays caters for the new generation of learners who are completely at home with interactivity, touchscreen technology and immediately-available software. These allow for smooth screen operation with a finger or stylus pen and can detect up to six touchpoints. Built-in whiteboard software means notes can be made on almost anything, from videos and photos to PDFs and presentations. Saved as an image file to internal or external memory and emailed directly from the display to the mobile device, there is no need to connect to a PC or install additional software. The interactive displays are designed


with the next-generation wireless technology, Miracast, allowing seamless high-speed wireless transmission of full HD video files from Miracast compatible devices to the displays. This means students can now project or mirror their laptop, tablet or smartphone display simply by connecting via Wi-Fi. All


displays in the series feature DIGITAL LINK, allowing video, audio and control command transmission via a single LAN cable of up to 100m, a function compatible with all major third-party systems currently available. Interactive screens provide learning


content on high-quality, HD displays requiring minimal set-up time and very low power consumption. With funding challenges within the education sector meaning most projects are subject to tendering and rigorous cost benefit analysis, it is vital companies work closely with education customers to ensure the right solution, as was the case with Panasonic’s PT-RZ670, the world’s first 6,500-lm brightness laser light source

1-chip DLP projector. The projector has a laser light source and is filter-less, meaning maintenance-free operation for 20,000 hours and a low TCO (total cost of ownership) – perfect for education. Many companies, Panasonic included, offer leasing, rental and HP financing to schools and universities to cover capital costs. Larger digital screens coming onto


the market has made for extended applications, according to Daniela Dexheimer, product manager solutions, marketing and business development, NEC Display Solutions Europe. “Previously, when only small screens such as 32” to 46” were available, the main market for interactive large format displays was for signage and way-finding kiosk-type installations. More recently, since screens of 65” and larger have become available, touch displays have become an interesting tool for the education and corporate market. Additionally, new trends like collaboration and interactive table solutions and built-in PCs have boosted interactive flat panel sales.” Interactivity in general is the main
