specific requirements.
Deliver rich content and interactivity to the
classroom or meeting room
In addition, the interactivity provided by MagicIWB (Interactive White Board) helps hold audience attention and
increases participation, enhancing the overall learning
and information-sharing experience.
As budgets decrease, the need to find cost-saving
methods of teaching and distributing information increases. MagicIWB (Interactive White Board) boasts a longer
life span and reduced need for maintenance compared
with traditional projectors.
Recent developments in display technology have
opened new avenues of information sharing and presentations for education and business applications. The
expansion of large format display (LFD) usage is leading
to the replacement of traditional projectors. Interactive
e-Boards in meeting rooms and classrooms are enabling
teachers and executives to use creative, collaborative
methods to present and distribute information.
When choosing Samsung’s large 65-inch and 75-inch
LED interactive whiteboard (IWB) displays, customers
enjoy simplified installation and maintenance. Not only
are these benefits superior to traditional projectors, they
also compare favorably with the features of other IWBs
using top- or rear-projection. Samsung’s LED technology provides significantly sharper, smoother and brighter
picture quality without visual distortion.
Touch display technology is becoming commonplace,
providing stimulating new ways to attract and hold the
attention of audiences, whether in a classroom or business environment. These technologies are well suited to
support various learning and business applications.
Educational facilities and businesses are considering
touch display technology to improve student learning
and provide high-quality, effective company presentations. Educators and business executives require enhanced interactivity between facilitators and participants.

technology, enabling interaction between the electronic
whiteboard and attendees’ PCs or tablets. Combined

more with the touch of a finger.

range of lecture room sizes, this choice provides the
flexibility to select the best display size for each location.
Integrated into smart meeting room, Samsung LFDs and
the MagicIWB (Interactive White Board) solution provide
new and different business environments for conferences and meetings.
For added versatility, the LED displays can be transformed into e-Boards with the simplified installation of an
optional overlay touchscreen. The overlay touch option
uses infrared (IR) touch technology and provides a sixpoint simultaneous touch experience. A special antiglare
film covers the surface of the overlay for a smooth writing surface and a real handwriting feel. Included with the
overlay touchscreen are two Touch Pens and Samsung
MagicIWB (Interactive White Board) software. Also included is a pen tray that incorporates one upstream and
two downstream USB ports. The displays can also be
linked together to create an interactive video wall.
The result is productive, distraction-free presentations
that provide:
In addition, multiple learning and presentation modes
are provided for enhanced impact. Choices include:

Once strictly limited to signage, LFDs now take the
place of projectors in a variety of business applications.
With innovative advances in touchscreen technology,
picture quality and energy efficiency, LFDs are a better,
clearer and more cost-effective alternative to projectors.
LFDs deliver high-quality images without the distortion,
blur or glare inherent in traditional projectors.
