Imex Managing Director, Peter Niblock, says, “It’s all about the wireless collaboration in the classroom these days, and Imex has the perfect solution: Vivitek Teaching panels. These state-of-the-art interactive displays allow students and trainees to cast from their own devices.” For today’s students, a blackboard just isn’t enough. Social media, videos and other online resources play a vital part in the educational experience. Vivitek’s NovoConnect Solution, supplied and installed by Imex, enables students to contribute to the classroom while keeping teachers and administrators in full control of content. Teachers have no time to waste fumbling around with cables. That’s where NovoConnect comes in – full wireless operation and support for content sharing enabling teachers to make the most out of every lesson. This wireless presentation system designed for the education market is bases on the BYOD principle. That means that everyone can connect and share content using the Windows, Mac, Android, iOS or Chromebook device of their choice. Easy access to cloud services such as Google Drive lets users share content from anywhere.
The need to be informed and updated at all times characterises the demands of many citizens today. Providing the right content at the right time is one reason why so many organisations have embraced digital signage technology. The proof of its growing popularity is all around you – from a train station to a hotel’s reception area, the petrol station to the shopping centre and even inside the retail outlets contained within it. In short, sharing information is seen as a good thing – whether it’s an update on train times, special promotional offers, amended trading hours over a seasonal holiday, guidance directions or even a cheerful ‘Welcome’ message to greet you as you check into your hotel room. But, there’s a snag. Digital signage solutions – until recently – were not that easy to use and an administrator would need programming skills to update the content. As a consequence, the useful information they were meant to convey wasn’t always updated or accurate.

Addressing the problem easily and effectively, is Vivitek’s NovoDS, available from Imex. What’s so important – and refreshing – about this affordable digital signage solution is that it dramatically simplifies the process for creating and updating content on a display. Ideal for creating dynamic visual displays for a corporate or public area, the digital signage content can incorporate text, photos, audio, video, and web content in fully customisable configurations for a variety of settings.
Versatile and flexible, the applications for the NovoDS range from corporate events and commercial spaces to educational facilities and public installations that need a quick and easy digital signage solution. Also, Vivitek has an extensive line-up of award-winning digital projectors consisting of projectors for home cinema, education, large venue and meeting room projectors. Vivitek was the first to launch a full high-definition LED home cinema projector and was among the first to offer the tiny but powerful HD LED Qumi projectors to the mass market consumer, as well as 3D-ready digital projectors featuring DLP link® from Texas Instruments. With Imex as the Ireland distributor for the Vivitek range, they deliver a 5-year education warranty to our education customer base.
