Bett 2016: Exciting product launches at this year's show Bett 2016: Exciting product launches at this year's show

Bett is the UK's leading education technology show, and this year it is returning to the ExCel Centre in London with more product launches than you can shake a ruler at.

This week, between 20 and 23 of January, Bett 2016 is playing host to some of the world's leading education technology manufacturers, each of which promises to demonstrate the latest interactive and collaborative solutions for the education sector.

Among the events taking place during the show is the Learn Live Tablet Academy Take Over, providing visitors with the chance to try a range of products for themselves, as well as the STEAM Village, which will promote a number of organisations supporting learning within the STEAM subjects: science, technology, engineering, arts and maths.

However, the highlight of this year's show is set to be the variety of product launches taking place throughout the event, including the launch of the latest CTOUCH interactive displays.


One of the most popular manufacturers in the interactive display market, CTOUCH already provides customers with a range of innovative products, including the low-budget Laser air range, offering high-end features for smaller budgets.

However, Bett 2016 will be the stage for the company's latest launch, the Leddura xts. Designed for high-end, corporate applications, the Leddura xts features UHD resolution technology, 20 points of touch and built-in Android and Google Chrome. Not only that, but the device also includes Smoothboard Collaboration Software for a more interactive education experience.


As well as CTOUCH, projector specialist Hitachi is also set to demonstrate its latest range of innovative designs at Bett 2016. Among the company's brand new range is its latest ultra-short throw interactive projector, which will be demonstrated for the stand's visitors.

As part of the company's latest round of upgrades, the ultra short throw projector now offers increased image quality and contrast, as well as a lower total cost of ownership thanks to a lamp life of up to 10,000 hours.

Not only that, but Hitachi's ultra short throw projector series also features interactivity for up to six people simultaneously using either pens or fingers, as well as calibration with memory function for an even easier set up each time.


Like its rival Hitachi, BenQ is hoping to win over visitors of this year's Bett 2016 event with the launch of its latest ultra short throw projector, which is aimed at K-12 and above institutions.

The international projector manufacturer is launching two new projectors at this year's event, including the W883UST and MX882UST, both of which are cited by the company as being their most advanced projector products yet.

According to BenQ, these innovative introductions to their already award-winning line up will make it easier than ever for educators to enhance their teaching process, thanks in part to a new simple set up process. Bett 2016 visitors will also enjoy a preview of the projectors' brand new control options and enhanced image quality, both of which are "unrivalled" according to their manufacturer.
