Brea, CA (June 27, 2016) - ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, showcases its award-winning educational solutions at the ISTE Conference, June 26-29, 2016 in Denver, CO. ViewSonic's displays and interactive software solutions provide schools with the tools that build technologically-advanced classrooms where students and teachers create, communicate and collaborate.

ViewSonic® will highlight products where teamwork is inspired and collaborative sharing is promoted. Using ViewSonic's interactive flat panel displays, including the 70-inch CDE7061T and 65-inch CDE6561T, the company will demonstrate huddle spaces using its interactive ViewBoard™ for Education software and Mersive's Solstice™ collaboration software. These displays can be utilized in Android-, iOS- and Windows-based classroom settings.

All ViewSonic interactive flat panel displays for education, including the CDE7061T and CDE6561T, come with ViewSonic's exclusive ViewBoard for Education software. The easy-to-use annotation software solution was specifically designed for interactive displays. It allows teachers or students to write, highlight, edit and transform documents and images on-screen in real time, maximizing the capabilities of the interactive display to create more engaging content for collaboration. The software also features many easy-to-use templates for English, Math and Science. By using ViewBoard for Education, content such as documents and images can be instantly edited and saved in a Google drive, then shared in a Google-based classroom.

 Designed for unlimited users, Solstice Software enables multiple users to easily and simultaneously share content from a range of devices (laptops, tablets or smartphones) over a Wi-Fi or LAN network. With a Solstice-enabled ViewSonic display or projector in the classroom, a number of students can instantly connect, share and control content on the display or projector to better facilitate collaboration among students.

Saint Leo University Breaks New Ground in Use of Mimio Technology, Equips 22 Classrooms with MimioDisplay

Desire to Drive Active and Collaborative Learning Opportunities for Students Spurs University to Outfit New Building   Boston, MA – Oct. 26, 2015 – Large, flat-panel displays fill an increasing number of media rooms with dazzling images, and a theater-like experience is becoming a daily occurrence in many homes. Consequently, a large percentage of today’s students are accustomed to high definition (HD); in fact, it has become the expected standard.
