Avocor wins Tech & Learning award at Bett 2017


Avocor™ has been announced as a winner of a ‘Bett 2017 Best of Show’ competition by Tech & Learning UK, a British publication focused on technology in education learning.

Winning the award for the X series, launching in late 2017. Avocor were judged based on five criteria: ease of use / maintenance; richness / relevance of feature set; value for students / educators; versatility; and originality.

Heather McLean, editor at Tech & Learning UK commented: ‘The competition between our entrants was incredibly high… In the end, the results were incredibly tight thanks to the fantastic quality and innovation shown by all our entrants.’

Building upon the success of the Avocor F series, the forthcoming X series is a 75” display which includes their revolutionary Avocor Intelligent Touch using InGlass™ technology, now supporting 20 simultaneous touch points. The panel delivers all the market leading features of Avocor Intelligent Touch, specifically smooth, accurate and responsive touch in conjunction with precise object recognition.

Powered by a Windows 10 operating system, the X series delivers the same instantly recognisable interface as the E and F series, enabling users to access a wealth of familiar applications and content straight from the panel.

The X series includes an advanced connect and collaborate bar, with a host of connectivity and control keys featured in other Avocor ranges but adding in a wireless presentation module enabling users to easily connect 3rd party devices to the display. Make lessons more interactive and collaborative by wirelessly connecting personal devices and sharing content from group sessions instantly. There is also a high quality soundbar module housing 40w of directional audio delivering crisp, rich audio performance, amplifying every classroom experience.

Commenting on the new Avocor interactive display, judges said ‘This interactive display gives educators exactly what they need; cutting edge technology that is incredibly
easy to use. Just connect and you’re away using Windows 10. It’s that simple.’

The X-7510, shipping in late 2017, is the latest in the Avocor product family, joining the F and E series panels, powered by Windows 10 and their entry level Infra-red proposition, the V series.
