The interactive technology is built into the mimio Board frame, housed in a heavy-duty but service-accessible anodized aluminum housing, making the board less susceptible to impact or abrasion damage that can impair the performance of boards that use touch sensitive technology embedded in the board surface. mimio Board ships as a complete system ready for use with a data projector providing touch responsive interactive display and giving users full control of all computer functions, applications, online resources and documents directly from the whiteboard using the mimio Mouse interactive stylus. Also included is mimio Studio software, a suite of interactive tools, enabling users to create and assemble interactive content in an editable notebook. For educators, mimio Studio installs interactive teaching content to support elementary and primary level reading, writing, math, science and social studies lesson content and resources. Whether teaching, presenting, hosting meetings or leading training sessions, mimio Board provides a platform to present content interactively with flourish and effect that is engaging and memorable.
“With the new mimio Board line, we are extending the compelling mimio value proposition of performance, versatility and cost effectiveness from our portable retrofit board solutions to complete boards ready for installation,” said Mel Jackson, mimio general manager. “We have incorporated wireless and cable interface options “out of the box” and are setting new industry precedents in terms of large surface area and support for both conventional and wide display projection. Our goal is to make whiteboards accessible, serviceable and affordable for any classroom or meeting facility.”
An optional mimio Capture Kit can also be used with mimio Board to electronically capture, save, print and share EXPO dry erase marker notes, diagrams and drawings. mimio Board’s porcelain steel surface ensures easy marker use and clean erasures of board notes with high fidelity digital capture of marker notes in standard and extended EXPO dry erase marker colors. mimio Board’s button controls enable quick saving of board notes at any stage, producing “slide show” sequences of board notes for later editing, printing, presentation or review. Captured board notes can be just as easily copied or exported to other file formats or document pages.
mimio Board is supplied for easy but secure mounting on any classroom, office, meeting room or boardroom wall. An optional aluminum stand on rolling casters permits mimio Boards to be easily moved between locations.
