As a global edtech provider for the last 25 years, Promethean has continued to innovate to address the needs presented by students, teachers and administrators of all communities. The most recent product, the ActivPanel LX, is a secure, high-quality interactive display designed to meet the demand for schools looking for more budget-friendly edtech. The ActivPanel LX can easily plug into their current technology ecosystem to work seamlessly with the software and applications teachers are already using to increase student engagement and create classroom breakthroughs.
The ActivPanel LX boasts advanced features such as a 4K display using HDMI 2.0 technology, Gigabit ethernet ports for optimal network speeds, LCD bonded glass for superior writing and viewing experiences, and advanced touch technology supporting pen and touch differentiation, palm erase, and 20 points of touch.
A Promethan spokesperson told us that education and the technology that supports equitable and accessible learning became a hot topic throughout the pandemic. Through the forced changes this shift brought, disparities in budget, learning, etc., across the nation came to the forefront. While edtech does provide a number of benefits for both educators and students, including increased engagement, flexibility for teachers, and much more, the reality is that every school or district has different needs and funding, and not every educational community has the same access to it.
IT administrators will find the ActivPanel LX convenient for setup and installation, without the need for enrollment, management, or frequent updates. The panel does not store or retain any personal identifying information and is not part of a network, which means that IT staff can maintain existing security protocols and authentication methods without performing additional security updates.
Promethean aims to make interactive displays accessible for all districts, schools, and classrooms, regardless of geographic location, student demographics, or budget constraints. The company’s focus on creating a user-friendly panel that is easy to maintain enables millions more students worldwide to benefit from this transformative technology.
Promethean has been named the global leader in interactive flat panel displays (IFPDs) for education, according to Futuresource Consulting’s Q4 2022 report on the World IFPD market. The company was named No. 1 by volume in the global K-12 education sector (excluding China) in 2018, and has held the top spot ever since, making this its fifth year in a row to receive this distinction. In the United States, Promethean captured 30.8% of K-12 sector volume in 2022. It took 24.9% in the United Kingdom and Ireland market; and 22.9% in Germany.
