digital presentation screens are everywhere. Think of hybrid consultation moments in a meeting room or powerpoint presentations for a large group.
Visually impaired employees must be able to participate.
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.

Students will be more involved during lessons and can participate actively in the class exercises.

as the user enters the room.
