The Hi-Lo Mono includes as standard, an integrated 4 way power bar.  This provides plenty of power for the screen and integrated peripherals.  A cover plate hides away all the wiring for a neat and professional installation, whilst at the same time keeping unwanted fingers out of the electrical compartment.

Loxit's SMART KAPP Board Stands for 42" & 84"

The new 42″ and 84″ KAPP Boards form SMART Technologies look set to revolutionise the way we note take during training and presentation sessions.  Bridging analogue and digital technologies, giving the user the best of both worlds.

Freedom, speed and personal style feature with the traditional dry wipe marker, whilst the clever concept of digital capture allows more learning and less note taking.

Loxit have created a range of stands to mount these new KAPP boards, with the 42″ portrait and 84″ landscape options.

The 42″ KAPP Board Stand comes in Fixed or Mobile versions and incorporates clean lines with stylish design to compliment any environment.

Its small footprint allows easy transportation of the KAPP Board between rooms.

Loxit SMART KAPP Trolley
Construction is robust steel yet smooth with a durable base, twin wheeled individually locking casters with rubberised wheels for a smooth ride.

Cable routing if required is handled by discrete cable routing to the rear.

Mount positions on the 42″ KAPP Stands can be varied depending on the maximum overall height required. 4 positions in 100mm increments provide flexible mounting positions.

Max Top of Screen – 2100mm
Minimum Top Of Screen – 1700mm

Warranty is 5 Years Return To Base.

The 84″ SMART KAPP Board also comes with 2 options.  The 84″ Fixed Height KAPP Stand is a single column design in the same style as the 42″ KAPP Stand.  The 84″ version comes with 500mm of height adjustment.

Whilst convenient if located only in one location, those users wishing to transport the 84″ SMART KAPP Board through doorways, either for storage or for sharing, might prefer the electrically operated version.

This allows the top of the large 84″ KAPP Board to drop to a heigh low enough to pass through a doorway whilst at the same time being able to raise to the perfect height once in position, ready for use.

Storage Solutions for Tablets

Tablet devices are not as durable as laptop computers. You can close a laptop to protect the screen and then tuck it away in a padded laptop case to further protect it.

However tablets can be a bit more difficult to store. Their screens are always exposed and their slim design means there’s not much material between the outside world and the internal workings of the tablet device.

If you’re a company or school that has multiple tablets for employees or students to use then that can pose further storage problems. Here are some of the best ways to store your tablet devices and keep them safe:

Single Tablets

If you just have one tablet device to store then it’s fairly simple. A hard-backed or silicone cover can help to protect the casing of your tablet device, and a screen protector will help to prevent the screen from getting scratched during transit or use.

A neoprene case will help to further protect your iPad or other tablet device during transit as the tablet will be completely cocooned and cushioned in its case.

To protect your tablet during use it’s advisable to use it with a stand that will keep it steady and go some way to prevent it being knocked or dropped.

Multiple Tablets

If you have multiple tablets to transport and store then you’ll need a specially designed storage facility.

Here at Loxit we supply a wide variety of secure tablet storage carts including the TabCart and Lapbank iPad and tablet management and security trolleys which not only store your iPads and tablets but also charges them as well.

This is an ideal storage solution for use in schools and workplaces as you can keep your devices safe and secure and they’ll all be fully charged when you come to use them.

These storage carts are lightweight and have lockable casters so that they can be wheeled around the school or workplace easily and secured in place when not in transit.

iPad Shortcuts and Tips

  • Apple released their first iPad in 2010 and since then they have sold more than 67 million units of the first, second and third generation models. What makes owning an iPad more favourable than owning a laptop computer? They are much easier to transport making them the ideal device for those who are always on the go, and there are a number of shortcuts that can help make life easier:
  • Typing Shortcuts – There are a variety of typing shortcuts designed to make things easier while typing a document:

    • Automatic spelling corrector function – there’s no need to type apostrophes, eg type ‘wont’ and it will auto-correct to ‘won’t’ etc.
    • At the end of a sentence simply tap space bar twice and the iPad will automatically input a full stop, space, and start the next word with a capital letter.
    • To place an accent above a letter simply tap and hold the letter on the keyboard then select the accent.
    • Instead of flicking from alpha to numerical keyboard to add punctuation just press and hold the ‘123’ key, and without lifting your finger off the screen slide over to the key you want and let go. Your punctuation will be inserted and the keyboard will revert back to alpha.
    • If you can’t find the right shortcut that you need, iPad lets you create your own shortcut via the settings menu under keyboard settings.

    Open Safari links in a new page – Rather than just tapping a link, press and hold it then select ‘open in new page’. There’s an icon at the top of the browser that looks like 2 boxes overlapping, pressing this icon will show you all of the pages that are currently open and give you the option to close them.

    Mute the volume quickly – The iPad doesn’t actually have a mute option, but by pressing and holding the ‘volume down’ button you can drop the volume down to zero in 2 seconds.

    Tap a word to look up the definition – When reading an article on the web, if you come across a word and you’re unsure of the meaning, just tap and hold the word until a magnifying glass pops up, lift your finger and a menu will pop up giving you the option to copy to clipboard or define the text.

    Put extra apps on the dock – The iPad dock has 4 apps as standard, but you can actually fit 6 there. To do this simply press and hold the app you want until it wiggles, then drag and drop it onto the dock to make sure your most used apps are easily accessible.

    Download the iPad User Guide – The official iPad User Guide is available as a free eBook in the app store. With 153 pages packed full of useful tips and help to get the best out of your iPad.

    The Importance of iPad Security

     An iPad could set you back around £400 to £700 so it’s something that you’ll want to look after and get the best from it. Here are a few tips to help you keep you iPad safe and secure from various threats:

    • Don’t leave it unattended – Hopefully this one should be common sense; if you leave your iPad unattended you leave it open to theft. Your iPad contains a lot of your personal information which could easily be compromised if left unattended. If left lying around the device could get damaged, knocked off the table or worktop, and trodden on.
    • Keep it covered – Use a screen protect to prevent scratches and dents and also keep the screen clean. It’s also worth investing in a silicone cover too as these improve your grip on the iPad, reducing the risk of dropping it; and if you do drop it, the cover provides some protection against damage.
    • Install updates regularly – It’s advisable to install updates when they pop up rather than clicking ‘install later’. Apple issue regular software updates that fix various bugs and glitches and improve battery life etc so make sure you keep up to date.
    • Prevent unauthorised access – It’s advisable to set up your iPad so that it automatically locks itself after a predefined period of inactivity and will require a specific pass-code to unlock. For added security ensure you restrict the amount of people who know the code and change it regularly.
    • Encrypt your data – The iPad offers a 256 bit AES encoding procedure. This is a hardware-based encryption which is turned on by default and cannot be disabled by users. However it’s recommended that you also use another form of encryption for maximum security.
    • Back up your data – With any computer device there is always the chance of technical failure as well as loss or theft of the device so it’s vital to backup your important data. Regularly.
    • Use a secure Wifi connection – The iPad’s unique selling point has always been its portability. You can connect to the internet via Wifi almost anywhere these days. However it’s highly advisable to connect to a trusted, secure network to ensure that any data you send is not intercepted. Try to turn off Wifi and Bluetooth when not in use; this will prolong your battery life and stop your iPad from attempting to connect to any unsecured networks.

    Teachmeet Newport

    We had the fortune of meeting some really inspiring teachers this week when we hosted Teachmeet Newport at Panasonic System Networks at Duffryn nr Newport.

    What’s a TeachMeet?

    It’s an informal and enjoyable gathering of those curious about and involved in teaching and learning. Anyone can share great ideas they’ve trialled in their classrooms, ask questions or simply turn up and soak up all the great ideas and enthusiasm. In particular, this Teach Meet focused on Technology in Education and participants were encouraged to share ideas, experiences and practices.

    The main part of the TeachMeet is hearing stories about learning, from teachers and other education professionals. This is a chance for education professionals to hear ideas from each other, a chance to hear real narratives of practice that makes a difference. It is about being engaged and inspired by our colleagues and gaining a whole bucket load of networking to boot!

    It’s a chance to learn something new, be amazed, amused and enthused.

    Teachmeets are informal gatherings of those curious about teaching and learning. Anyone can share great ideas they’ve trialled in their classrooms, or on placement, ask important questions or simply sign up to take part in conversations about learning. This is not an event to present about a product or theory – this is a chance for teachers, and others working in classrooms, to share good practice.  TeachMeet is about engaging and inspiring and making connections with other educators.

    Presentations are either 3 or 5 minutes in length with names drawn out of a hat, these short sharp sessions are designed to focus minds and be clear and concise. They may focus on certain applications or specific approaches to subjects or practices and most importantly inspire people to use them in their own day to day lives.

     

    Why access control for mobile device storage could be your best friend.

    Educational institutions have a long list of priorities to manage with Security near the top. Security requirements cover people and premises as well as data and not forgetting resources. When it comes to security for both site and students, Schools, colleges and Universities have a range of access control solutions at their disposal, using a comprehensive range of readers, controllers and software systems.

    The management and control needs of educational establishments are such that they are increasingly using sophisticated database systems to capture and analyse a broad range of information – including, for example, attendance records and academic performance. Information systems such as these form an integral part of timetable planning and the development and review of the curriculum, as well as providing a link to budgetary and financial management packages.  The information allows school managers to review, analyse and report on a wide range of data for staff and pupils.

    In addition to these operational management and financial analysis requirements, schools are increasingly reviewing their access control needs and looking to integrate and, where appropriate rationalise, their often disparate systems – either by introducing new modules into an existing system, or by consolidating previously standalone processes and procedures.

    With this complexity comes a requirement for a specific expertise in the integration of access control solutions with proprietary management information systems.

    The ideal is one solution that will streamline access control, time and attendance, student accounts as well as monitoring and managing access to resources. And all this whilst maintaining a high level of security, throughout an institution.

    Each school features its own set of ever-changing idiosyncrasies and unique challenges requiring flexible system architectures to satisfy each site’s demands.  With administration departments constantly seeking other creative ways to leverage current infrastructures, the academic services industry serve their identification needs by providing unique solutions to help educational institutions secure facilities and improve administrative efficiency to aid in academic excellence. With educational institutions worldwide seeing a significant influx of mobile devices for access by staff, pupils and visitors the administrative burden of managing a significant estate of mobile devices can be further complicated by various means of access. This is often compounded by the fact that these device estates have been added to over a matter of years.

    Colleges and universities present unique security challenges; not only does it mean controlling physical access to buildings and events but also includes logical access to resources, at the same time trying to control operational costs and serving the diverse needs of a campus community.

    Managed access to educational resources, reducing administrative complexity.

    With many establishments looking to industry to help support them administer managed access to resources, this is when access control can improve managed access to educational resources and reduce administrative complexity.

    In a college with several different faculties or a secondary school with several different subject departments managing access to mobile devices for each department can be an administrative burden. Whether this is existing device storage solutions or incorporating new solutions into an existing access control system, administration departments expect usage and access data and provision for remotely revised access.

    With the increasing security threats among educational institutions coupled with diminishing budgets and intense pressure to cut costs across all levels and departments. Colleges and universities, as well as schools and academies, must contemplate how to keep their sites, pupils and resources safe without breaking the bank. All of which can be easily achieved with the use of brand agnostic hardware, easily integrated into existing management information systems providing security and usage information data whilst offering easy to use access control management.

    BETT and ISE 2012 review

    Loxit recently returned from exhibiting at #ISE2012 (Integrated systems Europe) at the RAI centre in Amsterdam and #BETT2012 (British Educational Training and Technology Show) at Olympia in London, both of which were very rewarding shows for many reasons. For any business the level of investment to attend such shows is significant and for a business the size of Loxit they represent one of,  if not the largest portion of our marketing expenditure.

    There are of course several reasons for exhibiting and attending these types of shows, and this is at the forefront of our minds when both planning and during our time on the stand. There are two main product lines to our business one being “IT security” products and the second being “Audio Visual” mount solutions. Although it has to be said that products from each are applicable to both product lines. None more so than both our iPad (Tablet) charge and sync storage solution and our Hi-Lo® 500 Flip Top™ DisplayLift which we demonstrated at ISE and BETT.

    What was very clear is that Loxit has two products in particular which received significant interest and more importantly investment from throughout the world, we had conversations with end users and integrators alike from many different countries about the integration of tablet devices and Interactive large format displays into the #work, #learn and #public environments.

    This was echoed by the plethora of major brands introducing the latest tablet and interactive large format displays at both shows, one of which was #Samsung with the Microsoft #Surface #sur40 (on several stands at both shows) and the #galaxytab. Along with of course the #apple #ipad

    Our Lapbank iPad charge and sync solution was extremely well received at both shows, we knew of course there is a market for this type of product as we wouldn’t have invested the time and money in making the product in the first place. But I have to say what did come as somewhat of a surprise, was the interest from BETT, during a time of shrinking budgets there was evidence that schools with the necessary budget are already clearly seeing educational benefits and outcomes. Which in turn we are told is helping justify the sometimes significant investment tablet products require to other schools. And furthermore it’s clear this investment is not only coming from the schools themselves but from parents too. Shown by some of the BYOD “bring your own device” initiatives advertised and discussed at BETT this year. At ISE the product was of no less interest with some visitors who are providing tablets to aid both customers and its own employees, surprised that such a product even existed.  The most interesting conversations came from such reactions with people seeing the product as a catalyst to discuss BYOD initiatives with end users and their colleagues.

    Our  Hi-Lo® 500 Flip Top™ Display Lift which was designed specifically for use with #multitouch interactive large format displays, also saw significant interest from visitors from around the world. With so many display manufacturers including the likes of #samsung #LG and #Panasonic, as well as a large number of independent solutions providers releasing a raft of interactive large format displays at both shows. To say our flip top was well received is somewhat of an understatement, with us even selling the Flip Top trolley we had on our stand at #ISE2012 to a fellow exhibitor from Scandinavia. Further testament I feel to both the reception our own product receives along with its potential worldwide, as well as the explosion in the #multitouch #interactive media market.

    Introducing the first product in our iPad/tablet Charge and Sync range

    Choosing the right Projector mount

    You are investing in an expensive projector system and it’s important for you to consider the issue of mounting this equipment carefully. The mount will impact on the effectiveness of the projector and also its security and safety.  There are a number of different types of mounts available and you will need to select the right mount for your equipment and projection requirements.

    Ventilation

    When you are mounting your projector it is important to consider ventilation.  Projector equipment can give off a lot of heat and this is the reason they have integral cooling fans. However if you mount your projector system in a confined area then the cooling fan will no longer be sufficient and your equipment can overheat.  Projectors can be expensive to repair so you do need to choose the right mount and positioning for your equipment.

    Design

    You will need to carefully check the design of your mount.  If brackets or parts are blocking the fan outlet you could overheat your projector even when you have taken care to mount it in a well ventilated area.  Mounts with large flat plate designs can trap heat close to the projector.  Frame and lattice designs allow the heat to dissipate more effectively.

    Frame Material

    Steel mounts are strong and durable but this metal is not an efficient conductor of heat.  Without sufficient ventilation, this means that heat can become trapped near the projector resulting in overheating.  Aluminium is a much better conductor of heat than steel and is also strong and durable.  This can be a better choice to help prevent your projector equipment from overheating.

    Frame Finish

    If you are buying a aluminium projector mount check that it has a protective finish.  Even though aluminium is resistant to corrosion it is not invincible and will last much longer if it has been finished with a paint or powder coating.

    Balance

    When you mount your projector, you do need to take care that you balance the equipment carefully so that no single area is receiving any unnecessary pressure.  Plastic casings can crack over time if they are mounted incorrectly and cables can pull free and get damaged if they are placed in stress situations.

    Cable Management

    If you are mounting your projector unit at ceiling height then you should be able to easily route cables in a discreet way around the top of the room or through the ceiling itself.  Some companies also offer cable management mounts which provide holes and clips. These allow you to organize wires more effectively, but you must take care these cable management systems are compatible with your equipment.  If you have to force cables into holes or clips it can cause them to bend and become damaged.

    Loxit.com can supply the widest range of products for ICT management hardware, with projector mounts allowing your projectors to be stored and used safely and at a low cost to your business.
