(Fuzhou, China, 27, October, 2009) Returnstar Technology, the global leader of interactive multimedia industry, announces IQBoard ET-D, an electromagnetic interactive whiteboard with revolutionary Dual-User Mode.
Following is a video showing how Dual-User of IQBoard ET-D works.
Dual-User Mode enables two students to simultaneously use the IQBoard. Just a single touch on the icon, you can switch single-user mode (default setting) to Dual-User Mode, this does not mean
to divide the screen into two workspaces. These two users can simultaneously write, draw or
do any other operations on the entire interactive whiteboard, so that, it enables two users to solve one problem in two different ways, or to work together on the same question.
“Dual-User Mode is no doubt a new innovative way to make any interactive lessons on the IQBoard. As we know, interactive whiteboard has been trying to enable more students involved in the lesson activities.” says Ding Yi, Returnstar’s CEO. “So we developed IQBoard ET-D with Dual-User Mode,
which ensures to increase student engagement in a more interactive way.”

(Fuzhou, China, 11, August,
2009) Returnstar Technology, the global leader of interactive multimedia industry, today introduced the IQBoard Short-Throw Projector Stand for its interactive whiteboard.
Nowadays the interactive whiteboard in combination with a short-throw projector is gaining popularity in education and other audio-visual applications. Comparing with the traditional ceiling mounting of projector, why is IQBoard Short-Throw Projector Stand beneficial?
No blinding light even when standing in front of the interactive whiteboard
With many ceiling mounted projectors which project from a distance, the light shines into the teachers/presenter's eyes making it difficult to look back when standing in front of the interactive whiteboard.
With IQBoard Short-Throw Projector Stand which fixes the projector on the top of the interactive whiteboard, the light from the projector passes overhead. Looking back and talking to students/employees is much easier without being blinded by light from the projector.
Less self-induced shadows
With many ceiling mounted projectors which project from a distance, the presenter's shadow is often cast when standing in front of the Interactive Whiteboard/screen. However, when using IQBoard Short-Throw Projector, only the presenter's hand casts a shadow.
Combine mobility with stability
The unique retractable casters give IQBoard Short-Throw Projector Stand both mobility and stability. When the casters are retracted, the stand sits firmly on the ground, and when the casters are released, the stand can be moved freely. Besides, the height of IQBoard Short-Throw Projector Stand can also be adjusted to suit different environments.
Compatible with all short-throw projectors
IQBoard Short-Throw Projector Stand is compatible with all short-throw projectors currently available. You can select your favorite projector without worrying whether the projector can work with your whiteboard.
IQBoard Short-Throw Projector Stand can be used for IQBoard PS, IQBoard ET and IQBoard UI D003.
