Activeinspire - Would this run on an Epsom EB-475wi Interactive Projector?
We as a school use Pomethean Interactive Whiteboard and ceiling mount projector with Activeinspire, we are looking to getting some Epsom EB-475wi Interactive Projector for a new build, does anyone know if we could install ActiveInspire and use it on the Epsom as opposed to the branded Promenthian IW?
Thanks as always

I might be mistaken here but I seem to recall [from somewhere] that Promethean would have objections about using ActivInspire on non-Promethean hardware.

They do object unless you pay them approx. £500 for the privilege.

To clarify: Is that per board/per site...?

If I remember correctly, it is per licenced user. It was 3 years ago when we hit this problem. We switched to RM Easiteach Next Generation, at the time a site licence for Easiteach was less than £1k

That is per board!

I enquired recently about licensing and apparently if you have an ActiveInspire license you have the right to install this on 2 PCs/devices. We were needing to install ActiveInspire on a PC that just had a projector connected. We have around 80 Promethean boards in our school. I would suggest you double check this though.

I suggest you speak to Promethean. 3 years ago we had 40+ Promethean boards in school with Activinspire licences. We were told we had to use the hardware to qualify for the 'free' licence, ownership of the board is not enough.
We proposed using the Epson Interactive projectors along with the Promethean board switched off & they said that we would still have to pay for additional licences as we were not using their hardware.
