The new models of the Panaboard UB-T880 Series of interactive whiteboards with embedded PC come in two sizes – a widescreen 86-inch diagonal viewing surface and a 77-inch surface with 3:4 aspect ratio. The embedded PC includes HD audio, HDMI and Ethernet outputs, and features Wi-Fi capabilities and MS Windows 7.These UB-T880 Series whiteboards with embedded PCs have their own IP address so presenters can email content directly to the board, further minimizing setup time and maximizing collaboration time.
“We’re constantly looking for ways to simplify technology for our customers. For classrooms or meeting rooms that don’t already have personal computers, the UB-T880 Series with embedded PC offers the functionality of a PC while reducing the expense of purchasing one for every location,” said Joseph Odore, product manager for Imaging Products at Panasonic System Communications Company of North America. “For instances when end users already have a laptop or personal computer, the Panaboard with embedded PC frees up the use of their computer during group presentations or lectures to take notes or provide real-time student assessment.”
The Panaboards have the ability to deploy software prior to delivery. Their plug-and-play solution offers fewer wires and a simple setup. The optional mobile cart allows users to roll the board into the next room so that the PC moves with it, eliminating the need to unplug and carry a separate computer or install software on multiple PCs.
The multi-touch surface and simultaneous operation promotes collaboration. Image control allows users to easily move, scale and rotate content on the board and the Presenter Pen enables users to switch between four marker and three highlighter colors, use the eraser tool, as well as advance slides on a presentation from anywhere in the room. The Panaboards also have built-in stereo speakers which make it possible for presenters to share audio along with their presentations.
The UB-T880 Series with embedded PC will be available through authorized Panasonic retailers beginning February 1, 2013, with a standard 3-year on-site warranty.
