Promethean smart board cost factors

The Promethean board price depends mainly on the screen size and features, but screen resolution, installation method, and add-ons also impact the total price.

Size & features

There is no denying size does matter when purchasing a Promethean board, but so do the features. The more basic models have fewer features and functions, which keeps costs down, meaning you can get a larger board for a smaller price by limiting the features you select.

Screen resolution

Screen resolution is another consideration when purchasing a Promethean board. The ActivPanel 9, Premium, and Pro versions all come with 4K UHD. This ultra-high resolution provides clean, sharp images ideal for workplace presentations and classroom lessons.

The more budget-friendly ActivPanel LX and Nickel series come with 4K resolution. The lower resolution boards are not as sharp and have a narrower viewing angle but will save you money.

Installation method

Promethean boards are most often installed on a floor stand costing $250 to $1,500 for portability. Wall mounting panels cost $150 to $850, with Promethean brand-named products falling at the higher end of that price range.

If you don't have a dedicated IT and maintenance department, a service installer may charge $100 to $500 for mounting and setting up the system, depending on the system size and configuration. Some systems are simple plug-and-play, while others require more labor for hardwiring and integration with existing systems.
