Multiple point touch-sensitive interfaces, new education content solutions and hardware, plus immersive 3D education content demos that bring learning to life – all showcased this year at BETT 2011.
Panasonic will be showcasing its commitment to education at this year’s BETT education technology show, demonstrating a range of technology designed to help teachers and other education professionals create effective educational content and deliver engaging education programmes. Among the technology on show will be applications that demonstrate potential 3D technology for teaching, as well as wireless audio systems, voting terminals for students and third-party applications that run on Panasonic’s flagship UB-T880 interactive whiteboard.
3D Technology and Applications
The professional 3D technology on display will enable visitors to the stand to see pictures of themselves captured and displayed live on a Full-HD 3D display. There will be demonstrations of 3D content showing ideas that could become part of lessons in the future, for example a biology class demo of the human respiratory system, plus examples of 3D gaming.
The 3D demonstration will be shown thanks to the latest AV innovation from Panasonic, including 1080p Full-HD professional 3D plasma display TH-85VX200W and the world’s first fully-integrated professional 3D broadcast camera, the AG-3DA1. This comes at a time when news reports suggest 3D could have a real future in education and help breath new life into the curriculum.
“3D technology is a hot topic at the moment, and we believe 3D has a strong future,” said Brennan Peyton, General Manager, Panasonic System Networks Imaging Group. “The technology also offers new potential for teachers to create exciting lessons, particularly in the fields of science and media studies, and we will be demonstrating some of these concepts at BETT 2011.”
