How to connect notebook computer to panel to display notebook and be interactive?

I would like to connect a notebook computer to both G-series and OPS-G panels to have the display show on the panel and be interactive with the notebook. 

I'm not sure what type of cable(s), and to which ports they should be connected?

Thanks

  • Hi troyteck,

    Thank you for posting to our Support Community. 

    To connect any type of computer to the ActivPanel, you would need the following:

    - Either an HDMI or VGA cable to carry the image over to the ActivPanel
    - A Touch USB (A-B) cable to allow communication and touch interactions from the computer to the ActivPanel
    - ActivDriver, this will allow and assist in the communication between the panel and computer. This can be downloaded here, https://support.prometheanworld.com/product/activdriver

    Depending on the model ActivPanel will depend on the port pairings. On our newer V5 and V6 ActivPanels, you would be fine to use HDMI 2 and Touch 2 should you be connecting via HDMI.

    Please let us know if we can assist you further.

    Kind Regards,
