Get the classroom involved with finger-touch interactive projection

At GITEX 2016, Hall E4 10 of The Dubai World Trade Centre, visitors will discover Epson’s interactive solutions that allow teachers and students to get hands-on and take control, making lessons and lectures more engaging; just what you’d expect from the world’s number one interactive projector manufacturer[1]..

The EB-595Wi enables teachers, lecturers and students to use up to six points of finger-touch, or either of its two interactive pens, to annotate directly onto the projected image, making it easier than ever to write notes, draw diagrams or illustrate over videos. It’s easy to use the on-screen controls to change slides, choose inputs, or even save an illustration, all with the touch of a finger. The ultra-short-throw design allows users to interact with their presentations directly while minimising shadows and glare.

Jason Whiley, director of sales, Epson Middle East, says: “Finger-touch is all about instant interactivity using natural gestures, and with no learning curve. Teachers will find finger-touch incredibly useful for quickly emphasising a point or providing additional notes during class, crucially without having to find an interactive pen first, and students can head straight to the projected image to contribute. However, the beauty of this product is that you can still use the two interactive pens if you would prefer to do so.”

The interactive pens are now even more responsive and easy to use, with an improved, lightweight design. They allow teachers and students to write on the screen at the same time, with separate attributes, making collaborative work easier. The EB-595Wi’s unique design means that it’s possible to write, draw and annotate right to the corners of the screen, and with driverless installation and auto calibration it’s easy to get up and running. The PC-free annotation whiteboard mode means that teachers don’t even need to power up their computers.
