Samsung Unveils Latest Interactive Whiteboard 650TS
Just forget about your childhood blackboard or your actual whiteboard, here you are the 650TS interactive Whiteboard from Samsung. Based on your average 65” LCDTV our new interactive Whiteboard features a touch sensitive panel allowing you to write anything you want on it like you would do on your good old whiteboard.
“Samsung’s LFDs and interactive whiteboards are designed to be environmentally friendly, while offering a wide variety of options to meet various display needs,” said JinHwan Kim, vice president of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “The LED LFDs and LCD whiteboard offer amazing viewing clarity making them ideal large display options for students as an educational tool, or for promotional use in venues.”
Touch-Sensitive Large Format Display/Interactive Whiteboard
The 650TS interactive whiteboard’s 65-inch display is touch-sensitive with a variety of features expected of a high quality interactive whiteboard, such as a tactile and responsive screen and state-of-the-art “drag and drop” functionality. The 650TS also has built-in speakers, enabling users to play video and music files without additional sound devices, and the option to install a built-in computer.
In a traditional teaching environment, where the use of blackboards is the norm, students sitting on either side or at the rear of a classroom often find it difficult to read what is written due to sunlight or reflective lighting. The 650TS combats this with a wide viewing angle and a high definition LCD panel, giving viewers crystal clear picture quality regardless of their position in the room. Furthermore, the 650TS uses less reflective glass to reduce eye fatigue making content more legible.
The 650TS’ touch screen produces an upgraded learning environment and enjoyable learning interface for students. Rather than using a traditional PC and mouse interface, teachers can control their presentations directly, maintaining a continuous flow of information, which improves concentration.
Using the 650TS’ exclusive stylus pen and optional webcam, teachers can establish more interactive, two-way communication with students, cultivating a more exciting learning environment with higher participation. With the cutting-edge drag-and-drop facility, users can open images, maps, PowerPoint presentation files and electronic books, and also partially zoom and reposition. This whiteboard also offers an advanced handwriting function that facilitates users making notes directly onto Flash components or images.
The slim and sleek design of the 650TS allows easy installation, reducing the obstruction of classroom space. While a traditional DLP type interactive whiteboard requires a 60 centimeter space at both front and rear, the 650TS requires less than 20 centimeters.
