The district has also selected Central Technologies, a leading technology solutions provider, as its approved provider of Boxlight’s interactive flat panel displays. This contract is expected to generate $1MM in revenue for Boxlight.
Shelby County Schools is Tennessee’s largest public school district and is among the 25 largest public school districts in the United States. Formerly comprised of two smaller districts, Memphis City Schools and Shelby County Schools, the district now serves over 100,000 students in more than 200 schools. They searched for, and found in Boxlight, truly innovative, ahead-of-the-curve technology solutions that will integrate seamlessly and consistently across every instructional space in the district.
The ProColor interactive flat panel displays bring touch technology and collaboration to life on high-definition and ultra high-definition LED flat panel Android displays. The ProColor displays make whole-classroom engagement and collaboration possible, allowing up to 20 simultaneous single-point touch users, as well as offering a higher contrast display that makes it possible to see the panel clearly from anywhere in the classroom.
