Save money on running costs and energy

IBT touchscreen technology offers significant savings on the total cost of ownership. A traditional interactive whiteboard and projector system can consume 1010w of energy. With each system being used for a 6 to 7 hours a day, over the entire year that amounts to significant energy consumption.

A 55″ IBT interactive touchscreen with integrated PC typically consumes 230w – significantly less than the traditional interactive whiteboard and projector combo. Let’s take a look at the typical energy saving comparison:

No bulbs to replace

Replacement bulbs for whiteboard projector systems can cost £200 and usually need replacing every 1-2 years depending on use – IBT interactive displays don’t require bulbs and with a life cycle of around 30,000 hours (if run for 7 hours a day for 39 school weeks, this adds up to 22 years) the economics make sense.

REASSURING

Life Cycle

If run for 7 hours a day for 39 school weeks an IBT interactive display can run for 22 years (30,000 hours).

UNCOMPLICATED

Simple Install

IBT interactive displays can be mounted directly on the wall or on a floor stand using standard VESA mounts.
