New entry is designed to meet the needs of schools looking for a high-quality, more budget-friendly option
Promethean has launched the ActivPanel LX, a lower-priced panel that provides customers exceptional ease of use and flexibility, along with the quality and longevity the company is known for. With this latest offering, Promethean is well positioned to meet the needs of a growing segment of the education technology market.
“If there’s one thing we’ve learned over our more than 25 years in the edtech business, it’s that every school and district is unique—with different demands when it comes to their classroom technology,” said Lance Solomon, chief product officer at Promethean. “We’re excited to offer the ActivPanel LX to customers who place affordability, simplicity, and versatility at the top of their list of requirements.”
The ActivPanel LX is a simplified, peripheral touchscreen panel that can be easily connected to a laptop with a USB-C cable or paired with a computing module to complement an existing Chrome or Windows environment. It also works seamlessly with the software and apps teachers already use, so they can plug and play with minimal training.
IT administrators will find the ActivPanel LX easy to set up and install, and they won’t have to enroll, manage, or frequently update the panel. Because no personal identifying information is saved to or retained on the panel and it is not part of a network, IT staff can use their existing security protocols and authentication methods and won’t have to perform any security updates.
“Every district, school, and classroom deserves to have access to interactive displays, no matter their geographic location, student demographics, or budget,” said Matt Cole, EVP global sales at Promethean. “By making a panel that’s so easy for teachers to use and IT staff to take care of, we’re making it possible for millions more students around the world to benefit from this transformative technology.”
School leaders who want to ensure they are making a wise investment in education technology that’s built to last far into the future will appreciate the advanced features of the ActivPanel LX, including a crystal clear 4K display that leverages HDMI 2.0 technology; Gigabit ethernet ports that facilitate uncompromised network speeds to a connected OPS device; LCD bonded glass that provides both excellent writing and viewing experiences; and advanced touch technology that provides pen and touch differentiation, palm erase, and 20 points of touch.
