Hitachi release interactive learning tools for students

Hitachi Australia have announced a partnership with the Powerhouse Museum, installing four Hitachi Starboard FX DUO-77 interactive whiteboards and CP-A100 ultra-short throw projectors in the Museum’s digital workshops.

The Starboards are designed to facilitate creative learning and allow students to become more interactive when developing sound, video and image projects.

The projectors, when used in conjunction with an interactive whiteboard, allow images to be projected onto the board without obstruction, and allow for interactivity between students and teachers through a touch screen and interactive tools such as Google Maps.

Peter Mahony, digital media workshops manager at the Powerhouse Museum, said, “The Hitachi technologies allow us to place learners at the centre of the learning process by creating a more collaborative and hands-on experience for our diverse range of visitors.”

Hitachi’s range of projectors can also be used by businesses for work presentations, with enhanced maintenance functions meaning business owners who are not necessarily tech savvy can easily use and maintain the projector.

According to Bill Christoforou, product manager, Digital Presentations Solutions Divisions, the new range of projectors produce a high quality picture, are easy to use, cost effective and energy efficient.
