Mimio Unveils Interactive Projector for Classrooms

Campus Technology, January 28, 2013. By Leila Meyer

Mimio, a developer of interactive teaching technologies, has added an interactive projector to its MimioClassroom suite. MimioProjector is being demonstrated at the FETC 2013 conference taking place in Orlando, FL this week.

MimioProjector enables teachers to display graphical multimedia lessons on any flat surface, such as a dry-erase board. The projector works together with MimioStudio software to display Interactive images, which students can manipulate using an interactive pen or stylus. A dual-pen option enables two students to interact with the same image simultaneously.

The basic version of the MimioProjector does not include interactive features, but schools have the option of starting with the basic version and then adding on interactive features through upgrades right in the classroom.

The MimioProjector supports VGA, HDMI, S-video, and composite video connections and provides a native resolution of 1,280 by 800 (WXGA). It offers 3D graphics capabilities with support for DLP Link 3D and HDMI 1.4a 3D technologies. The audio playback system offers stereo sound through two 8 watt speakers.

Key features of MimioProjector include:

  • Dual-pen operation so two students can interact with the same projected image simultaneously;
  • Integration with other MimioClassroom products, including MimioVote assessment, MimioView document camera, and MimioPad wireless pen tablet, as well as Mimio content such as Mimio reading programs;
  • MimioStudio classroom software, which provides classroom instruction aids to help create and present lessons;
  • Field upgradability, so schools can start with a basic, non-interactive model and upgrade to single or dual-pen interactive functionality; and
  • Bulb life of 5,000 hours and ability to replace the bulb without dismounting the projector.

Mimio will begin shipping the MimioProjector at the end of March.
