The solution to magnify the smartboard in a classroom

It is impossible to imagine modern classrooms without the digital whiteboard. The challenge is to provide high quality information to the visually impaired student.

A camera that takes a picture of a digital whiteboard or projection is
then insufficient.

A specific solution for the digital whiteboard is needed. 

My Board Buddy AIR is the answer. 

It brings the image from the smartboard in high quality to a monitor close to the student. The student can adjust the magnification and color contrast himself without impacting the image of the smartboard using a remote control with joystick.

All screen content is displayed with minimal delay: text, photo, video, live notes.

What it does

This simple but genious device makes a vibration-free, maximum magnifiable duplicate of the smartboard or any other projection, while maintaining the original image quality and offering the possibility to manipulate the colors. It’s both ideal as add-on to existing school systems with a camera and as a stand-alone device with a monitor. 

The my Board Buddy transmitter  is placed between the source of the image e.g. laptop and the smartboard or beamer using an HDMI cable

It transmits the image wirelessly to a receiver.  This is connected to both the monitor and the

joystick with simple, colorful buttons. The fact users can determine which view works best for them turn this device into the best solution for a better view of the smartboard. Students will be more involved during lessons and can participate actively in the class exercises.
