Atlantic Devices has released ‘generation 3’ of its ‘e-blackboard’. The unit embeds an LCD embedded in a traditional blackboard and is intended for education use. The centre display supports PCap touch with FullHD (70″/400 cd/m²) or UltraHD (75″/450 cd/m², 86″/480 cd/m²). The company also has ‘compact’ models without sideways extensions, but allowing the glass in front of the display to be marked up.
(The displays look very similar to the ones shown by Jiangsu Odin Electronic Technology at BETT and we suspect that is the origin of these products)
