    Whiteboard Recommendations

    I have been tasked with selecting an Interactive Whiteboard solution, but there is the catch.

    Its for a Pre-School Nursery (Under 5's)
    Needs to be Height Adjustable (obviously) as a result Ultra Short Throw.
    Mobile? (possibly but not essential)
    If wall mounted (adjustable up/down) it would have to have a floor/wall mount as the candidate wall is a stud partition

    I'm looking at around 60"

    I'm already considering the Clever LCD solution anyway, so any one with Pre-School or KS1 experience who can offer some sensible recommendations regarding the more conventional whiteboard/all in one I would appreciate your input as my own experience with AV solutions such as this extends only to brick throwing teenagers and footballers.

    Effectively it needs to be usable by a 5 year old without the teacher suffering 3rd degree facial projector burns every day!

    TIA

    Smartboards at least have easy to deploy drivers that mostly work, unlike clevertouch

    Surely an interactive LCD is a better bet than an interactive whiteboard? Much better display technology, easy for the children to use and no chance of an adult banging their head on the projector when at a low height! For nursery school children I would have thought a 55" LCD solution would be sufficient, unless the room is particularly big. Loxit supply a very good wall lift that can take the weight to the floor on a stud wall.

    Are there any interactive TVs that don't have a glossy screen?

    Depending on how tough you want it clever touch Whiteboard are not expencive and you could use a sahara lift mount and it will fit to a stud wall as it has legs to take the weight, then i would use a hitachi 220 projector for above board mounting.

    or if you have the cash, a unicol one... Powalift Trolley

    I know the picture just shows an LCD, but you get one with a projector stand build in, and it will take up to an 80" smartboard

    PS, I'm with marc on the hitachi 220.

    I have been speaking to Loxit - unit will take the NEC 55 or the Samsung 55". we are providing them for a uni and another primary now.
