K12 presentation systems
Educators and school administrators want touchscreen panels and projectors that not only display content, but support audience participation during presentations. Multiple users can now mirror their device’s screen onto displays and stream presented content onto their phones, tablets or computers.
Routers allow the transfer of content from a presentation system to multiple devices within a secured network.
Meanwhile, more sound systems, microphones and remotes feature wireless technology that allows presenters to move around freely.
