LG unlocked new levels of awesomeness by exhibiting the world’s first 84″ Ultra Definition (UD) LCD interactive whiteboard, which will equip schools with a better teaching tool for students, and even teachers could up the interest quotient of a subject by coloring their syllabus in this white slate- in a quicker and smarter way.
The panel perimeter reads a big number, with side dimensions themselves measuring 1.9 x 1.1 meters (74.8 x 43.3 inches), just as much as regular whiteboards. The brightness goes to 350 nit, which is three-and-a-half times more brighter than the present projector-responding whiteboards. So even the back-benchers have the
unlucky advantage to see and interact with the whiteboard at ease. Also, the class-lights need not be switched off to read stuff, like you do at present in the projector-beamed boards. The screen-resolution is honeymoonish- at 3840 x 2160 pixels, this has 8 times more resolution-love than the current HD projectors that most classrooms have, or even the Full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel TVs that we usually encounter.
The interactive play comes in touchscreen support, where students and teachers can add notes/diagrams etc. directly on-screen. On-request, the screen could be equipped with Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) 3D technology, which welcomes wide viewing angles and pairs of supercool 3D glasses. And yes, if an entire classroom is considered (for the screen and the 3D-glasses), the price will have to be somewhere near reasonable, and LG sure is working upon that we believe. South Korea and China shall celebrate its launch by the end of the year, while others may expect this in Q1 of 2013. Would love to see how a device as awesome as this transforms education, or the style of teaching, in Indian schools. The human-machine interaction may add to more creativity I believe, what do you say?
