Cambridge, MA – April 16, 2015Mimio is pleased to announce its innovative MimioProjector™ 280 projector family, which allows schools to bring interactive and touch technology to classrooms that don’t already have projectors. The enhanced MimioProjector 280 line can fit the needs of any classroom because it now offers educators three options: the conventional non-interactive 280 model, the pen-based interactive 280I model, and the touch-enabled 280T model. With touch technology added to the MimioProjector line, schools can now offer students the technology they are so familiar with outside of the classroom, to better engage them in learning.

With a brightness level of 3,100 lumens, all versions of the MimioProjector 280 series provide extremely vivid and compelling images, and the ultra-short-throw design reduces shadows on the whiteboard. Students can enjoy stunning visuals and audio – no need for separate speakers.

The 280I allows for the simultaneous use of up to 10 interactive pens, a significant increase in functionality over the dual-pen operations of previous models. The touch-based 280T supports up to ten simultaneous touch points – 10 single-touch points or 5 dual-touch points for gestures, using styli or fingers. With an interactive touch area as large as 100 inches diagonal, the 280T comfortably accommodates up to 10 students at the board, taking teachers and students to a new level of engagement.

"We offer a significantly greater number of touch points than our competitors do, allowing more students to simultaneously interact with the same projected activity,” said Stevan Vigneaux, director of product management for Mimio. “Working collaboratively with their peers can increase students’ learning and maximize the educational experience."

LAN connectivity comes standard with all models, and all versions include a wall mount. The 280 model is field-upgradeable from non-interactive to interactive status, and from interactive to touch – without dismounting it. Setup is straightforward and easy for the interactive and touch systems. With a typical bulb life of 5000 hours, bulbs won’t need changing often, but they can easily be replaced without dismounting the devices.

“Adding a touch version of the MimioProjector to our other product offerings – MimioDisplay™ touch display and MimioBoard™ touch board – is just one more way Mimio continues to innovate in bringing touch technology to front-of-the-class learning tools,” said Rick Bigelow, Mimio's CEO.
