ELMO USA Corporation is proud to announce the release of its Wireless Tablet, a 21st century classroom technology that provides teachers and students with a “hand-held, hands-on” platform to learn and create in the digital medium.

According to Matt Takekoshi, President of ELMO USA Corporation, “The ELMO Wireless Tablet is the latest addition to our growing range of instructional technology products. It offers an exciting world of possibilities for students to actively participate in the digital classroom environment.”

Teachers and students can utilize the ELMO Wireless Tablet to collectively draw, annotate, manipulate images, and interact with multi-media resources and applications from all areas of the classroom (with a working range of 50 feet). When fully charged, the Wireless Tablet provides approximately 18 hours of continuous operation time.

The Tablet and Image Mate Accent® software functions are accessed through an ergonomically designed electronic pen that also provides smooth annotation with pressure regulated line width. The Pen’s function can be switched between “Pencil”, “Brush” and “Marker” and used in multiple modes, including blackboard, document camera, PC operation (to work as a mouse), and PC drawing.

The ELMO Wireless Tablet comes with Image Mate Accent software, a suite of annotation tools used to create and add-in effects for greater visual impact. Through the Image Mate Accent interface, users can draw on live images projected from a document camera, as well as incorporate digital multimedia. Image Mate Accent can also capture still images, and record video with audio in four modes, including time lapse for stop-motion or model animation. In addition, the ELMO USA Tablet makes creating and presenting lesson plans a breeze—teachers can easily use the Wireless Tablet to create and store lesson contents, and later, use it to open, control and interact with the presentation. Any number of captured images can be saved as a background or template for later presentation use.

This versatile Wireless Tablet can also be used to remotely control ELMO’s most popular document cameras, which include the TT-02RX, CO-10, P10S, and P30S.

The ELMO Tablet will be available June 2010 at a retail price of $399. Included with the unit is a power charger, carrying bag and user manual CD. This ELMO USA product complies with RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC (Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment). This compliance helps to ensure a healthier and greener environment for all our children.
