Prowise introduces palm recognition on interactive whiteboards

Users of a Prowise Touchscreen Ten can now work with palm recognition, allowing users to rest a palm on the screen while writing.

Prowise is making this and various other functionalities available via a free over-the-air update of the operating system Prowise Central.

The new palm recognition allows users to rest a palm on the screen while writing. The smart technology in the screen recognises a palm when users want to erase the written content.

Via the Prowise Central menu users can now lock their Prowise Touchscreen with a pin code. This 'screen lock' can be switched on and off manually. This way you can be sure that nobody can use the touchscreen without proper authorisation.

AirPlay, Chromecast, Miracast and Prowise Reflect (10 screens simultaneously, including touchback function) can be used on the Prowise Touchscreen without extra costs, licenses and cables. From now on, four devices can connect wirelessly via AirPlay and Chromecast and be displayed on the interactive whiteboard. This way, on the interactive whiteboard you can run several applications, programs or websites side by side (AirPlay and Chromecast interchangeably) and use them via a split screen principle. 

With the software update, users also gain access to the new version of Prowise Screen Control. With Screen Control, that same IT specialist can manage all Prowise touchscreens from one central location. With the press of a button, settings can be adjusted, apps installed or background images changed, all remotely (privacy).

Prowise Screen Control has been equipped with a number of new features, partly after consultation with users and IT partners. Partly due to in-house development, Prowise now makes it possible for users to install software updates remotely. The IT specialist therefore does not have to physically visit all the classrooms to ensure that the screen is equipped with the latest software, but can do this digitally via his computer. In the new portal, the same IT specialist will also find the option of switching touchscreens on and off remotely (on a scheduled basis).
