EMERYVILLE, Calif. —NextWindow has announced a next generation Interactive Whiteboard solution for plasmas and LCDs, which will be on display at NextWindow’s booth at InfoComm ’08 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 18-20, 2008.
“By combining a large format display with a NextWindow optical touch overlay and leading annotation software, the user can create an Interactive Whiteboard which seamlessly integrates computer applications and multi-media sources for an enhanced presentation experience,” said Anthony Uhrick, VP of sales, NextWindow. “It’s an excellent alternative to a projector and whiteboard solution.” The technology collaboration combines industry-leading annotation software and NextWindow’s 2400 Series high-resolution optical touch overlay to provide a superior tool for training, courtrooms, museums, command and control, electronic signage and collaboration scenarios.
The solution allows the end user to set up an Interactive Whiteboard within minutes, using large format displays with all the functionality of a traditional Interactive Whiteboard, but without the need for a dedicated stylus or pen — since the overlays can be activated with any pointing device or just a finger. And, since there are no proprietary drivers to install, the user is assured of compatibility with most other software applications using a standard mouse interface. Because the NextWindow screen is an overlay, installation is easy, and the optics of the display are preserved while providing a protective layer to guard against damage or abuse. The screens are being sold through AV and education resellers.
