BETT showcase for Samsung17 January 2011
The company exhibited a host of its Display division products at last week’s BETT show, including a 63” Plasma Interactive Whiteboard.
Available now in 63”, the Samsung Plasma Interactive Whiteboard is already in use at selected schools within the Torfaen region of South Wales. The deployment follows a successful pilot scheme, during which teachers found students to be ‘more engaged’ with the learning process and less fearful of being corrected in the event of making a spelling mistake or other error.
Samsung also exhibited a host of other products with relevance to the educational market, including the NC190/NC240 PCoIP monitors, which benefit from ‘raised security’ through important information being stored on the centralised host PC; the Series 20/40 Monitors and F10M Data Projector, both offering reduced total cost of ownership; and the EX Series LED LFS screens, which are available in 40”, 46” and 55”.
Torfaen County Borough, Cornwallis Academy, Brunel University and Manchester Metropolitan University are among the institutions to have worked closely with Samsung Display, which says its products are designed both to reduce energy consumption and minimise waste.
Phil Gaut, Samsung general manager for display, commented: “At Samsung we are proud and excited to introduce our LED Displays and Projectors to schools and colleges. Our roll-out of the Interactive Whiteboard in Torfaen has shown first-hand how students have built their confidence to interact with classmates, present to an audience and explore new ways of learning in their digitally integrated classroom. The expanded capabilities of Samsung technology means teachers benefit too and can use the Interactive Whiteboards in a way that suits them, rather than be restricted in the way they teach.”
