PolyVision displayed its Walk-and-Talk interactive whiteboard, whose interactive panel enables users to turn standard classrooms into engaged learning environments and can be used in auditoriums, labs, or modular classrooms as well. PolyVision’s interactive whiteboards also integrate seamlessly with the 3M Super Close Projection System, the company said.
