Iris Computers has bagged an order worth Rs 30 crore to supply 3,000 units of K-yan, a computer cum projection system, along with smart boards for Himachal Pradesh government.
Sanjiv Krishen, Chairman, Iris Computers said
“It is only a few students in elite schools or those in advanced countries who got the opportunity to study in a smart class room with audio visual smart boards. Now students belonging to all classes of society will get an opportunity to study in a smart class as the price of K-yan is within range of most schools.”
Developed by IL&FS and IIT-Mumbai, K-yan integrates several devices like a PC with high speed processing capability, large data storage (160 GB), DVD/VCD/ACD/MP3 capability, TV tuner card and a high quality projector (2800 lumens).
Krishen revealed that IL&FS has prepared the course material according to the prescribed syllabus which will be in the computer and can be projected onto the smart boards through the projector.
Company said that it can be used at home for board rooms and private coaching classes.
IL&FS Education will give training to teachers regarding the content as well as how to operate K-yan. It can also be powered through a solar panel, UPS or a battery.
