Prestigious International Awards Program Honors Outstanding Educational Technology Products and Companies
BREA, Calif. – June 8, 2023 – ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solutions, today announced that the ViewSonic® ID2456 is the winner of the "Education Hardware Innovation Award" in the 5th annual EdTech Breakthrough Awards program conducted by EdTech Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies and solutions in the global educational technology market. In 2022, ViewSonic was EdTech Breakthroughs' "Next-Gen School Solution Provider of the Year."
The ViewSonic® ID2456 is a multifunctional 24-inch touch display designed to expand learning spaces and boost engagement. The high-performance screen features native 1080p Full HD resolution, with projected capacitive [PCAP] touch and Palm Rejection technologies.
It can be installed to be used as a podium display to control presentations projected on a big screen or a second monitor in hybrid classrooms. The display offers smooth and responsive touch and works with Microsoft Pen Protocol [MPP2.0] active pens to deliver precision and accuracy when writing or drawing.
The ability to present and manipulate digital documents and materials, combined with the device's precision touch technology, allows teachers to clearly illustrate and demonstrate concepts in a way that is engaging and easy for students to understand.
The ID2456 also features a sleek form factor with single-cable USB-C connectivity. Its bezel-less display design and five-pound weight makes it simple to transport, and it can easily integrate into existing classroom frameworks. The device also allows for screen mirroring or extending desktops - offering the ability to share content of digital documents - eliminating the need for physical versions.
"We wanted to create something that fits seamlessly into modern classrooms. The ID2456 is actually ideal for remote students, as well, where they may not have access to physical copies of materials. It was important for us to impart flexibility to schools by allowing teachers to adapt to different scenarios and effectively reach all their students," said Jeff Muto, Business Line Director at ViewSonic. "We're honored to be awarded the 'Education Hardware Innovation Award' from EdTech Breakthrough. We will continue to develop hardware to assist with long-term cost-savings, maximize the use of digital resources and improve access to education - which helps create more equitable learning opportunities."
The mission of the EdTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of educational technology categories, including Student Engagement, School Administration, Adaptive Learning, STEM Education, Remote Learning, Career Preparation and many more. This year's program attracted more than 2,400 nominations from over 16 different countries throughout the world.
"Some subjects rely heavily on visual content such as science, math, and art. Hardware that can help teachers to write or draw with accuracy, makes it easier to present and explain concepts to students. The visual learning experience is important for students even if they are not physically present in the classroom. Companies like ViewSonic are ahead of the curve in bringing forth this technology," said James Johnson, managing director, EdTech Breakthrough. "From facilitating collaboration to reinforcing concepts through the visual medium, students can easily absorb concepts, no matter where they are with the ViewSonic ID2456. Congratulations to ViewSonic on another EdTech Breakthrough win - this time for the 'Education Hardware Innovation Award.'"
