What does multi-touch and multi-user mean?

Touchboards sells many different brands of interactive LED and LCD screens for a wide ranges of needs and budgets. We find that Promethean screens offer some key advantages over the competition. There is a lot more than meets the eye when choosing the right flat panel display and we would like to showcase some features that set this screen apart from the rest:
  • Software that simply works!  It may sound trivial but the software is the “brain” behind the screen.  Promethean ActivInspire is an award winning software suite that brings your presentations to life. It is easy to use, intuitive and allows multi touch capabilities for windows 8
  • Promethean onsite training:  This is a great way to ensure that you get your money's worth out of this amazing interactive display. While easy to use, Promethean has a trained staff that offer the best training in the industry to help you use the more advanced features.  We highly recommend personalized training available anywhere in the US. Ipad/Android/Chromebook integration can be taught as well.
  • ActivOffice plugin is free and allows you to seamlessly integrate your annotation notes into PowerPoint
  • BYOD software: Promethean now has some incredible new software that lets you present on your Promethean ActivPanel and incorporate all of your mobile devices.  It works with Apple ipad, Android and google chromebooks (it’s universal.)  Best of all, they don’t have to be in the same room as the ActivPanel, you can collaborate from anywhere in the world, you just need an internet connection.
  • No overpriced PC built in. You can simply attach your computer or contact us for details on the selection of slim computers can can attach to the back of the screen (see Q&A section on this page for more details)
  • Lessons/Content: Built-in lesson resources and 90,000+ resources on Promethean Planet give teachers a head start on the creation of innovative, engaging lessons.
  • HD resolution: Full high definition 1080P display with HDMI connectivity
  • Rugged Gorilla Glass: surface stands up to the abuse of high traffic environments: 4mm acid-etched tempered glass
  • Non-glare screen with super smooth surface designed to give you the most vibrant colors and smoothest finger touch with reduced finger residue. This special low friction surface, dubbed “ActivGlide” can be seen at virtually any angle and lighting condition.
  • Response: the APT screen is designed to be fast so you can pinch, zoom, access apps and swipe just like you do on your tablet/ipad
  • Touch sensitive with finger or pen:  the very responsive pen is great for people who are more comfortable with using a stylus. When writing quite a bit of words most people prefer the pen over finger we have seen but you have your choice.
  • Standard Vesa mounting: 600x400 pattern for a host of mounting options (static, tilt, articulating etc)

Q & A

Does the ActivPanel come with a computer?

No, but you can use your own computer or attach one to the rear of the screen. 

Each ActivPanel Touch is equipped with a slot to the rear of the unit that can accommodate a small computer that conforms to the Intel Open Pluggable Specification (OPS).

The objective of the OPS is to provide the ability for a wide range of computing units to be integrated into display units such as the ActivPanel Touch based on standardised dimensions and the use of a common 80-pin JEA socket and other connectors.

The are many manufacturers - large and small - of OPS computers, and individual units vary in terms of chipset and features offered. Some units are designed primarily for use with a manufacturer's own digital signage solutions, whereas others are produced for use on a wider range of equipment.

In theory, all OPS computers should comply with Intel's OPS specification. For technical clarity, the Intel OPS Specification (Electrical, Mechanical and Thermal) Document is available for download from the ActivPanel Touch page.

Promethean's ActivPanel Touch has implemented the OPS specification as closely as possible to the basic definition with the intention that any computer fully compliant with the OPS spec will operate correctly. Promethean's testing of the ActivPanel Touch has demonstrated that fully-compliant OPS units will power on and operate correctly when inserted into the OPS slot on the rear of the panel.

In practice some manufacturers apply certain elements of the OPS spec (often dimensions and connectors) and adjust the core operation of their units for particular purposes. The result of these particular adjustments may mean that individual OPS units may not operate in full or in part with the ActivPanel Touch. 

As manufacturers of OPS units may change their unit specifications without notice, and individual unit specifications may vary by geography, Promethean is unable to make formal recommendations of OPS units that can be used with the ActivPanel Touch.

However, we can state that the APT-65 and APT-70 tests carried out by Promethean used the AxiomTek range of OPS computers (the OPS 83, 860, 870 and 880) which operated satisfactorily. AxiomTek units are available from many distributors worldwide.

Is the ActivPanel mac / apple compatible?
A question asked frquently about the ActivPanel Touch is regarding support for connections to a Mac computer.

At the launch of the ActivPanel Touch, Promethean stated that Windows was supported (from XP onwards), but made no mention of Mac OSX. Since then there has been some confusion amongst our partners and in the market.

To be clear:

The ActivPanel Touch can be connected to and will operate with a Mac computer running OSX (Snow Leopard / Lion / Mountain Lion). This includes operating with ActivInspire. 

The limitation that applies to the use of the current ActivPanel Touch with OSX is in fact the same as that when it is used with Windows XP - the operating system will only recognise a single touch (whether that is a finger or the stylus).
