The British Academy is the UK’s national academy for the humanities and social sciences and is committed to using their institution to support and promote equality, diversity, and inclusion in all that it does. To best further this aim, they decided to refurbish dedicated workspaces to include modern technology. They wanted to include large displays that were interactive, simple to use, wireless, and could support Zoom and Microsoft Teams video conferencing.
In partnership with Runtech, Clevertouch furnished the Academy with UX Pro interactive touchscreen displays. These state-of-the-art displays met their requirements and more:
- patented Super Glide Touch technology for a fluid writing experience and can differentiate between palm-erase, fingertouch, and stylus-writing
- infinity whiteboarding with handwriting-to-text recognition
- ability to sync with cloud accounts such as OneDrive, Dropbox, and Google Cloud
- wireless or hardwired connections so users can connect safely using separate networks
Users can wirelessly present to the UX Pro displays using Clevertouch dongles or Windows Connect, along with the inbuilt PC and onboard Clevertouch features. Because the displays are multi-touch, presenters can interact and communicate with the screens while fully utilizing the power of web-based tools for meetings, presentations, and webinars.
