Mimio has announced the newest addition to the MimioClassroom family of products, the MimioProjector interactive projector, which rounds out Mimio's ability to provide devices that address the interactive display needs of every classroom, according to the announcement.
The MimioProjector device is an affordable and easy-to-use solution that includes built-in tracking technology, a stereo amplifier, speakers, and MimioStudio classroom software. Teachers can quickly and easily create multimedia lessons and then display those lessons, graphics and images on a dry-erase board or any other flat surface. An accompanying pen or stylus allows users to manipulate MimioStudio software's projected images. Dual-pen operations allow two students to simultaneously interact with the same projected image, increasing teachers' capacity for including collaborative learning and small-group instruction in their classrooms.
Schools or districts with budget constraints can begin with a high-quality, entry-level version of the MimioProjector device and expand its functionality over time through in-field upgrades. That means that a basic, non-interactive model can be upgraded to a single or dual-pen interactive solution, right in the classroom.
The MimioProjector device supports all common video formats, including VGA, HDMI, S-Video and Composite. Its high image resolution produces true-to-life images and color for enhanced display of charts, graphs, artwork and simulations. The stereo sound of its audio playback system boosts users' auditory experience. The projector also allows for the display of 3-D content.
The MimioProjector interactive projector integrates with other MimioClassroom products - including the MimioVote assessment, MimioView document camera, and MimioPad wireless pen tablet - through MimioStudio software. The projector also integrates with Mimio content such as Mimio reading programs and other Mimio content partnerships. The MimioProjector interactive projector will begin shipping to schools on March 28, 2013.
