Important information about Software Support

Promethean constantly strives to provide its customers with the best possible products to support the challenges they encounter in today’s educational arena.

A key component of this process is the withdrawal of older products that no longer meet customer requirements.

Promethean would therefore like to inform you that from the end of September 2010 they will therefore no longer be providing support for versions 1 and 2 of ActivStudio and ActivPrimary software.

In the longer term support for version 3 of ActivStudio and ActivPrimary software will be withdrawn in September 2011.

Promethean however would like to announce that customers can upgrade to its award-winning ActivInspire software free of charge before the end of September 2011.

ActivInspire provides users with a range of benefits not currently available within ActivStudio and ActivPrimary:

  • ActivInspire is the ‘power behind the ActivClassroom and unlocks Prometheans entire range of hardware products, enabling greater pupil interaction.
  • Available in 30 languages,
  • Enables all existing premium and free educational content to be utilised.
  • Offers the opportunity for users to utilise the vast array of Publisher Created Resource e.g. flipcharts. Within ActivInspire the number of Publisher Created Resources is significantly greater than those available with ActivStudio or ActivPrimary.
