Taipei, Taiwan – May 31, 2011 – AVer, a major global provider of presentation, security and video conferencing solutions, proudly announces that New AVerPen*, AVer’s next generation of wireless, interactive pen, has been given the 2011 COMPUTEX TAIPEI design & innovation gold award, an honor bestowed upon only five of the 179 entrants & 42 award winners.

Michael Ting, Vice President of AVer Information, remarked, “We have spent a lot of time and energy improving upon the award-winning first generation of AVerPen. From design, to feel, to functionality, New AVerPen has been carefully engineered to pick up where the first generation left off and to push the limits of classroom instruction and in class activities by combining many of the technologies teachers love into one, easy-to-use solution. For New AVerPen to have passed the scrutiny of the iF judges and come out on top with a Gold Award in such a competitive field is truly a testament to its value and originality.”

The COMPUTEX TAIPEI design & innovation award is organized, in cooperation with TAITRA, by the International Forum Design, or iF, which is “one of the world’s leading industrial design institutions” and has been a well respected judge of product design for over half a century. This competition is currently in its fourth year and is rapidly gaining notoriety on the global stage.

The New AVerPen, which is set to hit the global marketplace in the near future, brings to the 21st century classroom a unique and revolutionary teaching tool that enables true learning collaboration. It combines the best features of interactive whiteboards, wireless slates and wireless presenters into one single device. The New AVerPen can be used anywhere in the classroom by teachers and students, on almost any kind of surface with no calibration necessary.

A standard set of New AVerPens comes with the Teacher Pen and Student Pens. The Teacher Pen can be used not only as a wireless pen, but also as a presentation device, as well as give teachers control over the use and functionality of the Student Pens. Up to one Teacher Pen and six Student Pens can simultaneously annotate on the same screen. Students can use the Student Pens individually or in groups to solve problems, share ideas, work collaboratively and interact with the teacher.

*New AVerPen was the name used for AVer's second generation of interactive pen prior to July 1, 2011. This product is now referred to as AP20.
