The company's newest interactive display is honored with an iF Design Award and a Red Dot Design Award for excellence in product design

SEATTLE, May 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Promethean, a leading global education technology company, has received two of the most distinguished design awards in the world-the iF Design Award and the Red Dot Design Award-for its flagship ActivPanel 9 interactive display.

The iF Design Award is one of the most renowned design competitions in the world, with a history dating back to 1953. The award recognizes excellence in design across a range of categories, including product design, communication design, and packaging design. Winning in the educational devices category, Promethean was recognized by a 133-member jury made up of independent experts from all over the world.

The Red Dot Design Award was established in 1955 and is one of the world's largest, most well-known design competitions. The ActivPanel 9 won in the product design category, which seeks out products that have achieved great design quality and a high degree of innovation.

Powered by Promethean's patented ActivSync technology, the ActivPanel 9 responds to the evolving educational environment by breaking down barriers between devices, enabling increased connectivity and collaboration, and supporting hybrid and in-classroom learning. It provides busy, overworked teachers with the ability to create seamless workflows, design engaging and interactive lessons, customize their personal panel settings, and experience greater mobility.
