Panasonic Releases Four Interactive Audio-Video Whiteboards

New UB-T781/61 Elite Panaboards Feature Onboard Stereo & Enterprise-Tough Display Panels

SECAUCUS, NJ--(Marketwire - September 22, 2009) - Panasonic Communications Company of North America today announced the release of three new-generation Elite Panaboard® electronic whiteboards merging an integrated stereo sound system, advanced text and graphic capabilities, and a rugged Fine Enamel hard-surface anti-reflective screen with best-in-class scratch and shock resistance.

Separately, Panasonic also announced that the Panaboard UB-T780BP, a new-generation, USB-powered version of its industry-leading UB-T780, with integrated PowerPoint mode for invoking and annotating PowerPoint presentations without the use of a secondary PC, is expected to ship in November.

Available in three panel sizes (diagonal) ranging from 83 inches (UB-T81W), to 77 inches (UB-T81), to 64 inches (UB-T761), the new Elite Panaboard whiteboards boast seamless PC/projector integration(1), onboard avi/wmv/mpg/mpeg/swf-compatible streaming media playback(1), spotlight mode for highlighting a specific part of the screen, and a screen capture utility that automatically records every operation performed on the board along with accompanying audio commentary.(2)

"I strongly believe that Panasonic giving 'voice' to these Panaboards will prove tremendously beneficial to sales executives, teachers and all other interactive-audio video presenters," Panaboard Product Manager Bob Curci said. "For the first time they can integrate 'talking heads,' sound effects, and video/audio files into their presentations without needing access to an external sound system to play them in rich, conference-room filling stereo sound.

"Coupled with a robust software bundle including RM Education's award-winning Easitech interactive curriculum focused math, science, English language arts, and geography education modules for Windows or Mac and tools like Panasonic's innovative Spotlight electronic highlighter, these new Elite Panaboard whiteboards take creating and displaying engaging, dynamic classroom and enterprise presentations to a new level of simplicity and sophistication."

Other advanced features of the UB-T781/61 Elite Panaboards include simplified, no-computer-geek-required driver and software setup, an ergonomically optimized electronic pen for easy, mouse-like operation, from-the-whiteboard PC control with onscreen keyboard input, auto saving of text and graphics written on the board, and integrated drawing tools.
