Mimio Rolls Out Interactive Touch Boards for Classrooms

MimioBoardMimio this week launched a pair of interactive touch boards. The new MimioBoard line includes 78-inch and 87-inch models, each offering six-point touch.

The MimioBoard represents Mimio's first foray into interactive touch boards. The new line is designed to integrate with Mimio's other collaborative classroom devices and its MimioStudio and MimioMobile e-learning software.

The MimioBoard 780T is a 78-inch (diagonal) board, while the 870T is an 87-inch model. Both support input from fingers, styluses or any solid object at least 3 mm thick. Both also offer:

  • About 100 frames per second tracking speed;
  • 10 millisecond response time;
  • Aluminum frame;
  • 3 watt power consumption; and
  • USB I/O.

The MimioBoard 780T and 870T are available now. Additional details are available at mimio.com.
