 Interactive Panaboards with an Embedded PC Offer Simplicity and Versatility

Business Wire

SECAUCUS, N.J. -- January 28, 2013

Panasonic, a provider of professional document imaging solutions, today
announced the new Panaboard UB-T880 Series of interactive whiteboards with an
embedded PC. The integrated Intel i5 2520M processor embedded in the
whiteboard provides simplicity, versatility and interactive message delivery,
making it ideal for applications such as lectures and presentations in
classrooms or corporate boardroom environments.

As part of the Panaboard UB-T880 Series of interactive whiteboards, the new
models with embedded PC come in two sizes – a widescreen 86-inch diagonal
viewing surface and a 77-inch surface with 3:4 aspect ratio. The embedded PC
includes HD audio, HDMI and Ethernet outputs, and features Wi-Fi capabilities
and MS Windows 7. Because the UB-T880 Series whiteboards with embedded PCs
have their own IP address, presenters can email content directly to the board,
further minimizing setup time and maximizing collaboration time.

Versatility and Easy Setup

“We’re constantly looking for ways to simplify technology for our customers.
For classrooms or meeting rooms that don’t already have personal computers,
the UB-T880 Series with embedded PC offers the functionality of a PC while
reducing the expense of purchasing one for every location,” said Joseph Odore,
Product Manager for Imaging Products at Panasonic System Communications
Company of North America. “For instances when end users already have a laptop
or personal computer, the Panaboard with embedded PC frees up the use of their
computer during group presentations or lectures to take notes or provide
real-time student assessment.”

With the ability to deploy software prior to delivery, the Panaboards are the
ultimate plug-and-play solution, offering fewer wires and a simple setup. The
Panaboard UB-T880 Series with embedded PC offers additional versatility
benefits, as the optional mobile cart allows users to roll the board into the
next room and the PC moves with it, eliminating the need to unplug and carry a
separate computer or install software on multiple PCs.

Interactive for Collaboration

As with all Panasonic interactive Panaboards, the UB-T880 Series whiteboards
with embedded PC feature a multi-touch surface and simultaneous operation to
promote collaboration. Dynamic image control allows users to easily move,
scale and rotate content on the board, and the Presenter Pen allows users to
switch between four marker and three highlighter colors, use the eraser tool,
as well as advance slides on a presentation from anywhere in the room.
Additionally, the Panaboards come with built-in stereo speakers, offering
presenters the ability to share audio along with their presentations.

The UB-T880 Series with embedded PC will be available through authorized
Panasonic retailers beginning February 1, 2013. The Panaboards come standard
with a 3-year on-site warranty. Sales inquiries for Panasonic Panaboard
interactive whiteboards should be directed to sales.psc@us.panasonic.com or
