Outfitting individual classrooms with an interactive whiteboard, document camera and computer can add up to several thousand dollars each, and requires extensive training and technical support. Belkin’s Portable Tablet Stage transforms a tablet or smart phone into an interactive classroom tool at a fraction of this cost. Easily present, conduct a video conference, record a tutorial video, or capture perfect pictures using your favorite mobile device. Connecting the phone or tablet to a second screen, such as a television or projector, enables content to be shared with audiences in real time. Lightweight and versatile, the Portable Tablet Stage can easily be transported between classrooms, used in professional development sessions, or taken on field trips.

Belkin’s free Stage App for iPad adds interactive capabilities to the Tablet Stage, enabling users to capture live video and overlay text, labels, or highlight key points throughout presentations. Together with Stage App, Stage makes it simple to showcase a lesson or capture content with the iPad and, because it’s portable, Stage can easily be used for interactive presentations on-the-go. 

Key features included in Stage:

  • Enables efficient, effective lectures and collaboration in podium mode
  • Design is portable for easy transport and seamless on-the-go use
  • Weighs 2.5 lbs, lighter than two iPads put together
  • Angle adjustment allows ideal camera positioning and ergonomic use
  • Has integrated cable management
  • Fits tablets or smartphones with or without cases
  • Compatible with Belkin Stage interactive whiteboard and document camera iPad app

“We’re excited to introduce the new Belkin Portable Tablet Stage for education, which expands the way in which tablets and smart phones can be used in the classroom, as well as on-the-go,” said Jon Roepke, director, Business Division, Belkin International. “And combined with the Stage App for iPad, teachers and students can use Stage to collaborate with a simpler, more accessible and much more affordable platform compared to expensive and cumbersome equipment such as interactive whiteboards or document cameras.”

The Belkin Portable Tablet Stage (Part # B2B118) will be available April 2014 through Belkin’s global network of distributors and resellers.

Belkin offers a range of solutions designed to enrich the educator and student experience with technology in the modern classroom. Belkin will showcase the new portable Stage and other Belkin products designed for education at TCEA 2014 in Austin, Texas, February 3-7, booth #415.
