About the ACTIVboard and this guide
Welcome to the presentation world of the ACTIVboard. The ACTIVboard is the computer peripheral
that truly humanises the computer interface for effective presentations of all kinds.
Your classroom, meeting or conference room now has one device that replaces your white
board, paper FlipChart, electronic copyboard and projection screen. Set up your LCD projector and use
it as you would a normal projection screen. Connect it to your computer and you have the electronic
replacement for your paper FlipChart or an economical electronic copyboard. Save all that meeting data
or notes as Flipchart files to your hard drive instead of reams of paper too large to handle comfortably or
those curled up electrostatic sheets. Print them out when you are ready or pass them along the network
to everyone as an e-mail attachment.
Use the ACTIVboard in conjunction with an overhead projector and LCD panel or integrated LCD
projector. You no longer have to run back and forth to the keyboard during presentations or use a clumsy
remote control mouse or pointer to make your presentation. Stand in front of your meeting and control
the presentation from the screen surface. Your ACTIVboard pen is your personal control device as you
annotate or manipulate your slide show or create new data.
With telecommunications or videoconferencing software you are able to have remote meetings and
interact with multiple rooms of people instead of being limited to a small screen monitor. Imagine the
possibilitiestraining, remote learning, collaborative design or even remote presentations.
The ACTIVboard is designed to place you in control of your lessons, presentations and meetings and
provide the basis for making you more effective.
The ACTIVboard surface has been designed for optimal projection characteristics. We therefore do
not recommend the use of dry-wipe marker pens.
The information in this guide, and the contents of any help files or ReadMe.txt files associated with,
or included in, the utility software provided with the ACTIVboard will enable you to operate this product
effectively and efficiently.

System Recommendations
VGA or better video capabilities when used with an LCD projector. The LCD can only be
used to its maximum resolution and color depth when the video output of your computer
(video board) matches the LCD manufacturer’s recommendation for the specific model you
are using. The ACTIVboard has no upper limit to resolve your projected image or colour
depth other than the limits of the LCD projector in use.
The ACTIVboard driver and utility software requires very little system RAM, however, please
use the application software publishers' higher recommended RAM size for your applications
for best results.
The ACTIVboard comes with an 8m serial cable. You may extend this distance up to a
maximum cable length of 50 feet (15 m) with additional cables of this type.

User Profiles
ACTIVstudio gives you the ability to customise the program to the way
you work. You can decide the level of functionality you require from a
foundation user to an advanced user. The customisation works
alongside the idea of having user profiles. Once you have set-up your
user profile you may use the Customise Profile feature to alter your
individual personal 'copy' of ACTIVstudio.
When ACTIVstudio starts you are prompted to pick your user name in
order for ACTIVstudio to start working with your personal profile. Apart
from the ability to have ACTIVstudio remember your profile, recording
how you use the program, having a user profile allows you to have your
own personalised folder structure within ACTIVstudio's program folder.
In these folders are kept all of your saved flipcharts. If you have not yet
set-up a personal profile you must do so in order to benefit fully from this
valuable feature.

Notebook and Portable Computers
Your notebook or portable computer may have an integrated trackball or mouse, which is
assigned to the com2 port. Please note that the installation process automatically assigns the
ACTIVboard to the com port it is attached to. You may have to change the com port assigned to
your mouse or other device if there is a conflict while installing the ACTIVboard software. When
installed properly the ACTIVboard, the mouse or trackball, internal or external, will function
normally during ACTIVboard operation and when the ACTIVboard is disconnected.
If you have difficulty with this step please consult your Windows™ operating guide or call the
Promethean support line for detailed help in this procedure. This is a simple step but can be
confusing when trying to read it from a computer manual or instruction book.
If you have reprogrammed your mouse button functions from the factory defaults and are using
that com port for the ACTIVboard, you may have to reset them to the original settings. You may
change your mouse buttons back again after you switch it to the new com port. The ACTIVboard
reads the driver of the com port it is on and has an internal tip switch that acts like the default Left
mouse button. Again, you are welcome to call our support line if you encounter any difficulty in this

E - Pens
Parts Supplied:
2 passive pens with side button
Two pens are supplied so in the event of accident or breakdown you will always have a spare.
These pens "tune" themselves to the board and are not designed to operate alternately. You are
advised to use one pen at a time, keeping the spare in a safe place.
The pen tip is the equivalent of the LEFT mouse button.
The side button is the equivalent of the RIGHT mouse button.
There are no user replaceable parts inside the ACTIVboard pens.
Do not attempt to disassemble them.

The Interactive Function
The ACTIVboard provides a projection screen for your LCD projector to display your computer’s video output while
replacing your mouse or trackball with a humanised writing tool in the shape of a pen.
Your ACTIVboard electronic pen is able to control your computer, your application software and your operating
system by touching, clicking and drawing directly on the screen during your presentation or meeting.
Set up your LCD projection equipment and connect to your Computer according to
the instructions supplied with those components.
• Framing the Screen Image
The ACTIVboard has 4 angle icons at each corner, these effectively indicate the extent of the active
surface area. The ACTIVboard presentation pen will only work inside these boundaries. With your
projector on and projecting the screen image, position the image and adjust the size, just as you would
for a normal projection screen, but so that image falls within the icons.
• Additional LCD Panel Adjustment
Most LCD projectors have a software or hardware framing control that may need to be adjusted so the
screen image is not clipped at the top, bottom or edges. This control may need to be adjusted to correct
any frame clipping, please do so prior to calibrating the ACTIVboard. Consult your LCD Projector manual
if you are not familiar with this control feature.
ACTIVBOARD for Windows Users Guide
User Guide 26
Calibrating the ACTIVboard
The projected image needs to be aligned with the computer referenced screen image
(orthographic correction) each time the LCD projector is moved or set up.
This is a simple, quick and effective procedure that should be done anytime pen and system
pointer image are out of alignment.
If your installation of the ACTIVboard and the projection equipment is permanent you will only have
to check the correction after any adjustment effecting projected image size is made.
In a non-permanent set up, should you or anyone move the projector or the table (or the
ACTIVboard, if mounted on a stand and it is moved) during or prior to the end of your ACTIVboard
projection session you will have to redo this procedure to ensure pen and system pointer image
1. The projected window onto the Whiteboard should all be within the corner markings on the
Whiteboard. To launch the calibrator program either press the pen tip on the spot at the bottom
left-hand corner icon, or launch from the ACTIV program group.
The calibrator program will prompt you to click on the active area with the pen. The calibrator
program will then project each calibration cross in turn. The pen should be pressed onto the centre
of the cross, this should be done as accurately as possible. Clicking on each calibration cross will
step the process onto the next cross. When all 5 calibration crosses have been touched, the
calibration utility will automatically close and the system will be calibrated.

Maintenance & Cleaning
Do not use abrasive powders, soap, detergents or petroleum based cleaners
or solvents on the ACTIVboard surface.
Due to the high quality of projection surface it is not recommended that dry wipe markers are not
used on the ACTIVboard surface. If, however, the surface needs cleaning, we recommend a
proprietary brand of dry -wipe marker board cleaner.
Water based cleaners containing ammonia, vinegar or citrus (e.g., glass and counter cleaners)
that leave no residual film are acceptable as a second choice. Please check the contents on the
container label prior to use or clean and test a small area before cleaning the entire surface.
Stubborn stains or accumulations from other contaminants such as fingerprint oil, dirt, dust or
use of grease pencil or permanent markers may require use of a detergent cleaner and a soft
bristle brush. After such a cleaning it will be necessary to clean the surface two or more times with
the approved whiteboard cleaner or denatured alcohol.
Scratches cannot be repaired or removed and will make ink and stain removal to that area
difficult. Do not use metal brushes, scrapers or cleaning cloths whose prior use is questionable.
A polish with standard household spray polish will restore the smooth writing surface after
The surface of the ACTIVboard is made to very high standards of durability. In normal use you
can expect satisfactory results every time with proper maintenance.

The hook method employed with the ACTIVboard allows maximum flexibility for the many types of walls
found in office construction. If you feel that none of the suggested mounting instructions suit your
situation please consult the building plans or a reliable contractor for further assistance with your
Wall mounting
Before mounting the Whiteboard onto the wall a suitable position should be determined. Ideally
this should be a flat solid wall. Fixing to a wall other than a flat wall, may require the use of battens
or our alternative fixing brackets. Before starting any mounting it is essential that the brackets are
not fixed within 150mm of any electrical wiring or pipework either surface or embedded.
Mark the wall with a level mark at 950mm from the floor. Align mounting template with the line and
affix to wall using masking tape. Alternative mounting dimensions can be found on ACTIVboard
Wall/Stand Mount leaflet TP1332.
No plugs or screws are supplied for fixing the brackets as these can vary dramatically dependent
upon the nature of the wall. For a conventional solid flat wall drill through the hole markings on the
template with a masonry drill. Other types of wall may require different drill types. Remove
template and insert appropriate plugs. For other types of wall appropriate fixings will be required.
Screw on brackets as per instructions in ACTIVboard Wall/Stand Mount leaflet TP 1332. To fix
Whiteboard onto brackets it is best to do it with two people. Before lifting the Whiteboard into
position the interface cable should be clipped into place in the electronics pod on the rear of the
Whiteboard. Lift the Whiteboard up parallel with the wall and slightly tilt the board forward and rest
the bottom of the board on the bottom brackets. Extreme care should be taken to avoid the
Whiteboard falling off the brackets. Align the brackets on the rear of the Whiteboard with the wall
brackets and then lift the Whiteboard and allow the brackets to engage with one another. The
whiteboard should now slide down and the bottom should rest within the bottom brackets. Ensure
that the brackets are fully engaged.
