All New 2Touch Plasma Overlay | 17 November 08
It’s an interactive whiteboard – Just with crystal clear detail and no need for a projector
Manzana is pleased to announce that we can now supply New Zealand schools with the very latest in plasma touch overlay technology – the 2Touch plasma overlay. The all new 2Touch plasma overlay combines advance optical touch technology with the clarity and distinctiveness of a plasma display unit. The combination breathes life into a crystal clear and hassle free interactive whiteboard.
How does it work?
The 2Touch Plasma Overlay is the combination of two very distinctive and advanced pieces of technology. On the reverse side you have the plasma screen itself – a high resolution screen specially designed and enhanced for professional displays. Over the top of the plasma is positioned a touch overlay screen, enabling the plasma to become touch enabled.
Using advanced optical touch technology, the touch overlay places a clear glass layer across the plasma screen (so your fingers are kept away from the plasma) which, when touched, allows the user full control over the plasma display.
The plasma screens come in three main sizes 42”, 50”, to 65”.
Panasonic’s advanced range of plasma displays give you the choice of which components you want in the back of your plasma overlay. With their expandability boards (that simply slip into the side of your plasma overlay) you get to choose whether you want an HDMI terminal, DVI-D terminal (for Macs), a second PC terminal, a Scart cable for sky, a conventional tv aerial, RCA and BNC components for video and sound, as well as an IR terminal for all those hard to reach places for your remotes. Panasonic also offer the wireless expandability board which gives you full wireless contact between your pc and the tv – ending any need for annoying cables and re-plugging your pc in.
Why choose a plasma overlay?
The 2Touch Plasma Touch Overlay provides the user with a range of features that set it apart from the interactive whiteboard.
- The clarity of high resolution plasma display images
- Ability to use the plasma screen as both an interactive surface for your computer and a normal plasma television.
- Choose the size you want
- Requires no external projectors meaning:
- o No projector installation
o No projector beaming into teacher and students eyes
o No shadowing effect covering up vital board space
- Touch overlay simply clips on and off of the plasma display
- Your finger never touches the plasma screen
- Because the technology is based around just the hardware you can use any software that you want - leaving the freedom of choice to you.
As an extra feature, when you invest in a 2Touch Plasma Overlay, Manzana will include the latest version of 2Touch workbook. 2Touch Workbook is a versatile and easy to use interactive whiteboarding software.
