Samsung exhibits new interactive display with software solution for the education sector with enhanced usability and connectivity features
Samsung Electronics today unveiled a new interactive display with upgraded features and a powerful software solution at Bett (British Educational Training and Technology) 2023, the world’s largest education technology exhibition, in London. The more than 30,000 attendees at Bett can explore the future of education with the cutting-edge Samsung Interactive Display and the Samsung Whiteboard App.
Technology plays a critical role in the classroom today, and the classroom of tomorrow requires a full suite of tools to help teachers and students deepen connections and increase collaboration in a familiar and convenient way. To meet the evolving needs of educators, classroom technology is becoming increasingly customizable, feature-rich and interconnected across device ecosystems and operating systems (OS). Samsung is expanding its technology, services and support for education to set teachers up for success.
“Our education technology is designed to equip educators with the tools they need to fully engage students and enrich the learning experience in any environment,” said Hoon Chung, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “At Bett, we are excited to showcase our interactive display solutions, demonstrating the level of advanced usability and interactivity required for the tech-enabled future of education.”
Introducing the New Interactive Display and Software Powering the Classroom of the Future
The new Samsung Interactive Display (Model name: WAC) is available for Bett attendees to experience in person. Expanding the offerings beyond the Flip and Flip Pro models operating on Tizen OS, the new WAC model leverages Android OS to provide intuitive usability. The easy-to-use display helps teachers customize their home screen user interface (UI), activate multiple screens, share up to nine displays at once regardless of OS or device and utilize intelligent education apps to enrich student learning. Users can also take advantage of the integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
Unveiled in 65-, 75- and 86-inch models,1 the WAC series is built to integrate into any classroom setting. Its connectivity is enhanced with a 3-in-1 USB-C port, which enables hassle-free screen connection, touch control and external device charging (max. 65W). In addition, the HDMI output function allows teachers to share content on a bigger screen, particularly useful in a lecture theater.
Featuring a slim and user-friendly design, the WAC model takes into consideration the importance of both convenience and interactivity. With IR touch, users can enjoy a natural writing experience, 20 multi-touch drawing and a dual-sided pen to write with a different color on each end without changing the settings. The front stereo speaker, penholder and handle on the display boost convenience for a seamless education environment.
The Device Management Solution (DMS) for WAC series allows users to monitor and control the display in the classroom remotely at the same time. The DMS also provides an alert function that sends warning messages to the screen collectively in case of an emergency.
Originally available on the Samsung Flip (Model name: WMB, WMA, WMR), the Samsung Whiteboard App will also be compatible with the WAC model. The software solution helps educators connect to Windows OS devices, so that even after connecting a PC to the display, seamless writing on top of the content on the PC can be experienced in real-time, creating a dynamic classroom experience. In addition, it is easy to store and share content and documents, as well as annotate on top of whatever is being displayed in real-time, even during a video conference.
At Bett, the Samsung stand will be located at NE31 in the ExCeL London from March 29 – 31, 2023.
1 65- and 75-inch models will launch during 1H. 86-inch model will launch during 2H.
