The solution to magnifie the smartboard in several classrooms

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 GO is the answer. 

It brings the image from the smartboard in high quality to a tablet close to the student. The student can adjust the magnification and color contrast himself without impacting the image of the smartboard using finger montions.

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

This is a mobile solution. The user takes his/her tablet to each meetingroom and connects in a snap!

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 tablet. 

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 the app on the tablet near to the user. The fact users can determine which view works best for them makes this 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.

 

my Board Buddy helps them to work independently.

How it works

The app on the tablet wirelessly receives the signal from the my Board Buddy transmitter as soon

as the user enters the room.

 
The user opens the app and immediately sees the "connect" button. The steps to connect are completed automatically.

The app works on iOS, Android and Chromebook.

One my Board Buddy transmitter should be connected per

classroom or meeting room.

The user can give each my Board Buddy transmitter its own name, e.g. chemistry class, history class, math class,....


If there are multiple transmitters within range, this will allow the user to easily choose the classroom they are in.

Startup takes only 20 seconds!

The teacher or lecturer manages the device on his or her laptop or PC via the "manager".
