Interactive LCD screens have several advantages over projectors. There is no loss of visibility under shadows and the higher resolution of the LCD screen offers improved clarity. LCD screens, at 10,000 hours, have a longer estimated life than projectors and require less maintenance. Their widescreen format is also more compatible with iPads and modern PCs.
At Smarter Interactive, we offer the 8000 series SMART Boards with pens and erasers and BenQ models with a magnetic stylus.
We would particularly recommend the 8000 series SMART Board, which is fully compatible with all SMART software and a number of third party programmes: the hardened glass display means the boards are durable and have precise touchscreen capabilities, and its intuitive control allows two people to use it simultaneously. Presence detection capabilities allow the board to switch on and off automatically, lengthening the lifespan and reducing your energy consumption.
