What is the Genee View
It is an interactive whiteboard projector. Just plug it in and present without the need of an actual whiteboard.
How does it work
A colour camera with I/R filter mounted on the projector allows for interaction with the wand and light pen.
What can you do with it
Everything you can on an actual interactive whiteboard, write notes, circle key points, type changes, manipulate text, data and images, capture, modify, save or email anything on the screen as an image file, access and browse the internet, move from screen to screen without losing interactivity, capture the audience attention by interacting with the image.
Easy to set up and use
Simply plug into a computer source, save the software, respond to a straightforward 13 point calibration and you’re ready to interact.
Costs 50% less than traditional interactive whiteboards and ONLY one piece of equipment to purchase.
No installation necessary. Portable or can be retrofit into existing projector installations.
No screen necessary. Turn any flat surface into an interactive surface. Allows for large and flexible screen sizes (also available in a short throw, widescreen, and ultra-short throw model).
Works with virtually all interactive software. Write on the screen, use mouse control, type text from an onscreen keyboard, and save notes and edits for future use.
I was sent details on this today and I think that it would be ideal for a smaller schools, where cost is a factor. It is certainly a lot more cost effective than a Promethean or Smart IWB and although it isn't in the same class as these, it offers a portion of the functionality for a fraction of the cost. After all we pride ourselves on our attempts to stretch the budgets of our clients not simply sell the big, expensive brands.
I think it meant fitted to an existing mount....rather than purchasing a new one, which again would save the school money.
