An interactive whiteboard or IWB for short, is a huge interactive display that connects to a computer and a projector. The projector displays the desktop of your computer to the table where the operator would control the computer using a device like a pen or a finger. The Council is usually mounted on a floor stand or wall. Their use extends to various parameters such as church congregations, educational facilities such as classrooms, boards and working groups as a training tool for large enterprises and effective communication tool for the studios professionals, to name a few. Its use extends to use an operating system and software was loaded on the PC connected to the interactive whiteboard, which includes all web browsers. With the different specific models of IWB, integrated response of the audience may accompany whiteboards so that operators can interact with their audience by conducting studies and tests to receive answers on the blackboard.
How an IWB is installed, the device is connected to the operating system as a computer via a USB or serial cable or via a wireless connection like Bluetooth. The software is then installed on the PC attached, where he actually gives the interactive whiteboard to serve as the input device of man (HID) such as a computer mouse. An image will be displayed on the surface of interactive whiteboard using a digital projector that is connected to the main computer connected to the video output. The table will be activated when the driver begins, at which time the user is able to adapt and align the system and, if necessary, adjust the pointer to the image and set under the motion, buttons and menus, as they would with a mouse.
As with any text input may be necessary, the operator can use a software for handwriting recognition, or employ the use of a keyboard on the screen. These solutions would avoid the need for the operator to return the computer to type the text. By combining the mouse and use the keyboard, the operator is able to attend the computer display almost exclusively from the interactive whiteboard. In an attempt to maximize the potential audience interaction, interactive whiteboards come with most software that provides tools and features deliberately designed to add the use of interactive whiteboards. These applications typically consists of the ability to produce virtual version of flip paper with a pen and opportunities identified, and in some cases virtual tools such as rulers and protractors and compasses to mimic the equipment traditional classroom.
Interactive whiteboards can make use of a variety of detection technologies to facilitate interaction on the surface of the white screen as resistive, infrared, optical, electromagnetic and ultrasound, laser and camera based on optical technology . The most popular and widely whiteboard or call in resistance operations or electromagnetic. In short, there are many uses and benefits of interactive whiteboards. As its popularity grows worldwide, the market should future of these products seems to be increasing.
