Frequently Asked Questions

How do users ensure they do not suffer from “finger burn” when using an ActivPanel Touch?

“Finger burn” is the term used to describe the sensation that some users of non-Promethean interactive flat panels have experienced when moving their fingers repeatedly across the screen surface. Promethean has invested in specialized acid-etched glass for the ActivPanel Touch, producing a low level of friction, which means that users can interact using touch for extended periods without any discomfort.

How can the ActivPanel Touch provide a walk-up-and-use experience?

The Promethean ActivPanel Touch includes a recess on the back that will accept a SMALL COMPUTER that complies with the Open Pluggable Specification (OPS) definition. OPS computers can be purchased from a range of computer hardware manufacturers. With an OPS unit installed and appropriate software (such as ActivInspire, which is included with the ActivPanel Touch), a user can walk up to the panel, switch it on, and get started without the need to connect a separate computer.
