Promethean Titanium ActivPanels

Promethean's ActivPanel Titanium interactive displays can be used without connecting to a laptop or desktop due to its ActivConnect OPS. Its unified menu contains many tools designed to help deliver rich, interactive lessons with whiteboard, capture, and annotate apps. When setting up a new ActivPanel, both the panel and the OPS need to be registered to access the CPSB network for full functionality. To register them, submit a Tech Help ticket in the Promethean workspace that includes the MAC address and serial number for the ActivPanel and the model number and MAC address for the OPS. Watch Connecting, Configuring, and Caring for Your ActivPanel by Kelli Deranger of AXI to learn more.
