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.
“Thanks to the my Board Buddy GO, students and employees are able to participate in several classrooms or meeting rooms without hassle.”
– Andy Mylle – technical expert my Board Buddy
Give visually impaired employees acces to digital presentations
In any modern work environment, 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.
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.
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.
Startup takes only 20 seconds!
The teacher or lecturer manages the device on his or her laptop or PC via the “manager”.
