*The 70-inch monitor has been priced at $4,995 (roughly Rs. 3,40,000)
*Dell also unveiled two ultra short throw projectors
*The Dell Classroom software solution was launched as well

With the aim of providing a more immersive classroom environment, Dell launched a 70-inch touchscreen interactive display on Monday that can find its application in both classrooms and office board rooms. The $4,995 (roughly Rs. 3,40,000) full-HD display was launched by the company at International Society for Technology in Education 2016 Conference and Expo in Denver, Colorado.

The Dell C7017T interactive conference room monitor supports 10-point multi-touch for the hand, and comes with two included styluses. The 70-inch touchscreen display also comes with anti-glare and anti-smudge coating on the cover glass, and monitor components for clear text and images, Dell said in a statement. Apart from regular plug and play options, the monitor comes with a VGA port, Ethernet port, and optional Wi-Fi connectivity. It is now available on

Dell launched slightly more affordable alternatives in the form of two ultra short throw projectors - the Dell S560T and Dell S550P - that project images and videos onto walls or screens up to 100 inches with a full-HD resolution. Both projectors offer interactivity, with the former providing 10-point touch interactivity and support for a stylus, while the latter uses active styluses (IR Pens). Both projectors will be available from July 12, but pricing has not been detailed.

Companies such as Samsung, Sharp, and Elo already have interactive displays of sizes 70-inches or more in their portfolios. With the increasing demand of large interactive displays, it will be interesting to see which company conquers the space and whether schools and enterprises will go for expensive displays or stick to comparatively cheaper projectors.

The company also unveiled its Chrome-based software solution Dell Classroom, which is aimed at improving the collaboration between teachers and the students. It enables students to raise their hands virtually and answer via personal texts to the teacher, therefore encouraging participation from hesitant students and those with special needs.

"Educational environments are more interesting when students get to speak up, share ideas, work together and learn the way they want to learn," Bert Park, Vice President of Software and Peripherals at Dell, was quoted as saying in the statement.
