As the COVID-19 pandemic breaks out, many schools have to close campus and change the teaching way from face-to-face teaching to online classes. It is reported that thousands of schools across the countries are starting a mixed way for teaching and learning , in which teachers will teach students in the classroom and at home at the same time, thus putting forward new demands for students' participation across multiple modes.
As teachers start a new mode across virtual, hybrid and face-to-face teaching, SMART Technologies-the world's most popular supplier of collaborative learning software and hardware-announced new software and integrations to make it easier for teachers to create active learning atmosphere that attract students anytime and make they engaged in class. New integrations with widely used platforms such as Google and Microsoft enable teachers to use without relying on interactive flat panels, which directly enhances teaching in the platforms and workflows they already use. It makes easier for teachers to manage the classroom and for students to focus on tasks. In addition, two new features allow teachers to personalize teaching and feedback through recording, and obtain more information about the work of individual students in a group environment. “It’s really powerful to be able to send something to students and let them do it themselves, and the teacher can see what they’re doing in real time,” said Drew Morgan, Coordinator of Secondary Curriculum and Professional Development at Auburn City Schools in Alabama. "Especially now with distance learning, I love that there's no context change. The more you ask learners, especially younger ones, to navigate to different browsers or windows, the more you can lose kids."

Touch screen technology appears everywhere in our lives. Smart phones, ipads and other display devices are based on this technology for our daily use. Besides, touch screen is applied to laptop, digital signage and interactive flat panel like our IQTouch interactive flat panel series which includes L900 series, T1000 series and newly launched HC900Pro. All sizes are available and you can choose the right one according to specifications such as RAM/ROM, CPU, touch point, Android version, screen sharing, WiFi module, built in camera, 4K resolution and so on. And you can also use it with professional stylus. Many devices are inseparable from touch screen technology to realize the ideal functions.
Touch screen technology is the core of intelligent interaction, which is mainly used for commercial display areas, such as automatic machines, KTV Car display , the bank's ATM, and so on. And we strive for achieving the interconnection of everything. In the industrial chain of intelligent electronic devices, touch screen technology will run through the next generation of intelligent devices.
There is a trend that touch screen gradually becomes necessary technology to the display devices. More and more classrooms and conference rooms replace the touch screen as the their main display device. Presenters can directly operate on the screen and so that they can save the time of running between the display device and computer. They also can use tool combined with touch technology to do better presentation. In a word, touch screen technology brings us convenient operation and brainstorming atmosphere, which enhances our productivity.
As we have talked about the humanized design of HC900Pro in last article. In terms of hardware, it has powerful inside which supports dual systems of Android 8.0 and windows 10 with strong performance and reliability of CPU and GPU. 4GB RAM (random access memory) plus 32GB ROM (Read-Only Memory )makes you feel faster speed and more stable performance.
HC900PRO adopts IQ Android OS, which brings you seamless experience and simple operation. Two sidebars place on the left and right of the touchscreen and the floating bar is at your fingertip that you can move it as you want. Ours IQ OS also supports free annotation. You can annotate whatever you want under Android or windows system, such as annotating on the excel file , web page even the video. These annotations can be shared by QR code. Just scan the QR code and take them away. Besides, multiple themes are provides for your choice and you can download many kinds of apps you need. It also has OTA online upgrade support. The previous interactive flat panel was updated with a U disk, we need to insert USB one by one. But HC900 only need to one click the button on the interface to upgrade.
There is still important feature that IQ OS supports wireless screen sharing, no need to connect complicated cable, just scan QR code or use share button, content sharing can be achieved.
Except optical bonding, HC900Pro adopts many other humanized design.
We used to adopt Tempered glass and anti glare glass on the screen. But for HC900Pro, we not only use anti glare glass but also anti fingerprint technology. Anti fingerprint coating can prevent the screen from being blurred by fingerprints or grease. Anti-glare glass with optical bonding allows you to see the screen clearly even in the environment where there is strong light reflection. Besides, HC900Pro embraces ambient light sensor which can automatically adjust the screen brightness to the surroundings, which protects audience’s eyes when they keep watching the screen.
About Microphone, it has 4 built in array microphones, which adopts smart ambient filtration technology to reduce noise. So in the process of voice pickup, the human voice can be preserved and the surrounding noise can be eliminated to the greatest extent. The pick up range is 10 meters so that the voice can be picked up even in large classrooms or spacious places.
In addition, there are two built in cameras in HC900Pro. The first built-in camera has 13 million pixels and auto focus function. It can be worked as document camera which is mainly for scanning QR code and capturing the objects. It can clearly shoot A3 format range. The second 4K camera is for video conferencing with 8 million pixels which has wide 110 degrees of view field and auto focus function. It also can locate sound source and trace intelligently. Combining microphone with camera, a video conferencing system can be built.
HC900Pro is compatible with Windows Ink. You don’t need to use third party annotation software to annotate, just directly annotate on Word, Excel, and PowerPoint of Microsoft. And it also supports hand gesture recognition. One finger to select, two fingers to zoom in and out. Full palm to erase. These are the main features of HC900Pro.

In our newly released IQTouch HC900Pro all-in-one display，there is a new technology supported - Optical Bonding. The common bonding technology of interactive flat panel includes optical bonding, zero bonding and air bonding. Both air bonding and zero bonding have a gap which is full of air between LCD panel and touch screen. Along with dust entering the gap, it may cause blurred screen. However, optical bonding is the use of an optical-grade adhesive to glue a glass to the top surface of a display, which makes sure absolute vacuum and no air left between the LCD panel and the touch screen. It not only brings unparalleled readability, but also extreme smoothness of writing.
On the basic of 4K resolution, the screen with optical bonding has higher brightness, contrast and range, which presents you high quality video and gives you immersive visual experience than before. Besides, the content on the screen is still clear when viewed from the side with optical bonding. It supports real 178 view angle to deal with the users unable to see the content of screen when they are sitting at front sides or at the corner of meeting room. No matter where you sit in the classroom, you can clearly see the screen.
In terms of writing experience, optical bonding makes more accurate touch response with zero deviation. Almost like you are writing on the paper. With 0.5 mm accuracy, and 1.5mm touch height, brings writing experience smoother than ever. It also has intelligent gesture recognition such as single finger to drag and drop, two fingers to zoom, five fingers to roam and full palm to erase. What can't be ignored is that optical bonding has greater physical durability and impact resistance. It protects the screen from damage by rough transportation and violent damage, which avoid the situation of fragile screen.
What I mentioned above is all the benefits optical bonding brings to HC900Pro. However, the advantages of HC900Pro are not just these. For more details, please see the next article or view our website https://www.iqboard.net/.
The vision of Senses Electronics was to change the traditional teaching methods of educational institutions. Prashant Peethambaran, co-founder and CTO of Senses Electronic, talked about their focus on developing the Indian education sector through their new technology. “The company intends to let every teacher teach concepts accurately and effectively, every student experience interesting learning easily, and ensure that parent has confidence in their children’s learning,” he said. Therefore, they established the Intelligent Interactive Panel (IIP), which has successfully installed more than 8,000 devices in more than 700 schools in India. In fact, Senses Electronics holds up to 70% of the interactive panel market in the Indian education industry.
The company aims to provide state-of-the-art classroom solutions for the growing education sector in India. "Our interactive smart panel can meet all the teaching needs in the classroom. This is a solution based on an integrated LED panel, where the IIP can be used as an automatic whiteboard and run a piece of electronic content in the classroom. When we say integration, it is a system with high-resolution LED display, 20-point touch, powerful i7 CPU, audio amplifier and USB, Bluetooth, Ethernet and Wifi connections," Peethambaran said, adding that it is a Windows-based The open system supports any online and offline electronic content. The easy-to-use built-in whiteboard application supports free writing, image/video annotation, text and shape recognition, gesture control on unlimited canvas, artificial intelligence-based voice recognition, and more importantly, saving and sharing whiteboard sessions on email and cloud.
The benefits to students are obvious-they get a better viewing experience than traditional smart boards. Because it is zero radiation certification and low luminous level, it is completely safe in the classroom. "Students can easily collaborate on important whiteboard sessions shared via email or cloud. Classroom lectures can be recorded in static and standard video formats, and students can use these formats for effective learning," Peethambaran explained.
