While teaching and learning styles have moved on from traditional ‘chalk and talk’ to more participatory student involvement, it’s still the case that the display board – nowadays generally interactive – remains the main focus of most education settings. This needs to combine high levels of functionality with ease of use – and the latest models will be on display at ISE 2022.
For example, new for 2022 from Hisense is the WR6BE interactive display with 4K UHD picture quality and enhanced IR software that now recognises touch points as small as 2mm for an enhanced writing experience. WR series boards can connect wirelessly with two or more auxiliary screen devices.
StarBoard’s TE-XP1 multifunctional touch display is designed to deliver simplicity and effectiveness to the learning environment. StarBoard Interactive Software, SBS Note Software and StarClass Classroom Management Software all assist in the creation of digital lessons.
DisplayNote will be exhibiting its range of presentation and content sharing solutions, including its Montage software (pictured), which offers easy wireless screen sharing from personal devices. With the DisplayNote app installed on their tablets, teachers can share content to a central screen at the touch of a button without physically having to connect to a PC or set up cables. Teachers can also open apps on their desktops from the interactive touchscreen.

Making its show debut is the Cynap Pro wireless presentation, web conferencing and collaboration system from WolfVision. The company calls the all-in-one AV appliance “the ideal centrepiece” for modern classrooms. Multi-screen content from Microsoft 365, the built-in media player, web browser, or whiteboard can be included in Zoom, Microsoft Teams and other sessions. Recording, webcasting and streaming functionality is also included, and Cynap Pro can also act as a capture appliance for Panopto, Kaltura and other video management platforms.
Finally, audio clarity is vital both in traditional and hybrid classroom and lecture settings. Nureva will be demonstrating its new Voice Amplification Mode for the HDL300 and Dual HDL300 audio conferencing systems. Designed to support in-room amplification of an instructor or presenter’s voice while simultaneously providing full-room microphone pickup of in-room voices, it ensures that everyone can be heard by remote participants.
The company will also be showing the newly released Nureva XT, which combines a Nureva audio system with the new CV30 classroom camera kit and a three- or five-year subscription to Nureva Pro.
