Currently, ActivInspire and ActivDriver can be installed on tablets running Windows 8 and above.

Provided the tablet has USB and video out ports, it can be connected to the ActivBoard and projector for use in the classroom. Please consult your projector user manual for information about video connections. You may require additional USB or video cables/adaptors.

ActivInspire and ActivDriver cannot be found in app stores, so it is not possible to download these programs for tablets running Windows RT, iOS or Android.

However, it is possible to display content from your tablet on your ActivBoard (via the projector) provided your tablet has a video out port. You may require additional video cables/adaptors.

Alternatively, third party apps are available on certain operating systems that can be downloaded and installed on both tablet and PC to mirror the display.

Please contact your tablet manufacturer for further information about cables, adaptors and third party apps.
