With MimioClarity, the teacher’s voice is captured by a light-weight wireless microphone worn on a lanyard. Students will have a pass-around handheld microphone, both microphones come with a long, 10-hour battery life. The multichannel 60-watt amplifier is the microphones’ receiver and can connect to up to four microphones simultaneously. Additional inputs allow for multiple, multi-media integrations, and networked connectivity permits utilizing a school’s existing networked audio resources. Optional WIFI and Bluetooth dongles are available for wireless network, USB for software control, and Bluetooth for audio pairing
The system, which will begin shipping in July, includes either a two-speaker or four-speaker configuration. It is designed to deliver sound proportionally for students not only in the front of the classroom but seated in the back, while amplified front-of-classroom audio will also no longer be carried into adjacent classrooms. This means teachers will now be able to use a quieter, more conversational tone instead of trying to amplify the audio unevenly throughout the room. Additional audio sources such as Boxlight’s ProColor Interactive Panels, external teacher computers, video sources, and mobile devices will also be distributed with the MimioClarity classroom audio system.
Boxlight’s Connected Classroom technology allows each microphone the ability to work only within the same room as the amplifier.
The teacher microphone has two programmable buttons that allow direct interaction with the classroom’s computer to control the MimioStudio™ classroom software, Microsoft Office, Google Classroom, and other front-of-class software.
