Promethean announced the launch of its new ActivBoard 387 Pro interactive whiteboard Mobile System today. Essentially it’s a stand that can move your IWB and projector between rooms. It is the first in a new line of modular, upgradable stands from Promethean designed for the education market and it will be introduced towards the end of this year.
The reason this is now more possible before is due to advances in technology with projectors. The Promethean system incorporates an EST (extreme short throw) projector, which is positioned approximately 41.8cm from the board which significantly reduces shadow and improves a class’ view of the board.
The best news about this system is that the design team has also incorporated a double sided dry-erase whiteboard offering extra writing and display space. That’s fairly clever and gives this system some extra brownie points.
