The Promethean ActivPanel has additional USB and HDMI ports for accessing external media located at the bottom front of the frame.

Home and HDMI Source Options

The Promethean ActivPanel has an option to mirror what is on the Teacher’s Workstation in the classroom. On the home screen select one of the arrows to bring up the menu block. Click on ‘SOURCE’ and select ‘HDMI 2’. The display on the Promethean ActivPanel will now mirror the Teacher’s Workstation. The Promethean ActivPanel is a touch-screen and can now be used to control the Teacher’s Workstation.

You can also change the input by pressing the ‘Source’ button on the bottom of the ActivPanel frame.

Please note that the Promethean ActivPanel is touch-sensitive. It is important to not PRESS TOO HARD which can cause DAMAGE to the screen. The ActivPanel comes with a ‘PEN’ for those who want to use it as an option to the touch-screen function.
