Get more from your lessons with an interactive touchscreen from Cablers

Class, hall and meeting room AV
systems for your school

Cablers were installing Smartboards and Promethean Boards in 2005, so we know a thing or two about classroom AV

In 2005 school classrooms were transforming, technology at front of class enabled teachers to deliver lessons like never before. Smart and Promethean, the two leading interactive whiteboard manufacturers were fighting it out to be UK’s number one classroom product. Cablers work within schools with cabling and Wi-Fi meant we were well placed to add this new and exciting technology to the portfolio.

Since then Cablers have installed thousands of interactive whiteboards, projectors, hall systems and now touchscreens into schools throughout Essex, Suffolk and the London Boroughs, and have a wealth of experience enabling us to understand each schools individual needs and deliver a solution that fits.


Touchscreens are now the standard replacement for a classroom interactive whiteboard and projector systems. With lots of companies offering a range of screens, choosing the right one can be difficult. The benefits of a touchscreen include; lower running costs; up to 50,000 hours life expectancy and most importantly a much brighter crisper image with no shadowing.  See our blog to help you with our decision making process.

Features include:

  • A software suite such as Promethean’s Activ Inspire or Smart’s Notebook to build interactive lessons from a teachers laptop at school or at home

  • Presentation voting and interaction from student devices

  • Screen mirroring for iPads, tablets and laptops

  • Ability to download Android apps directly to the device

  • User log-ons to secure access

  • Lockdown messaging

Cablers have partnered with Promethean, Smart and iiyama to offer the best products built for the education market. These products mean you can upgrade old whiteboards without having to retrain teachers on a new software system or try manage with little or no software features at all.
