AUSTIN, TX - February 8, 2010 - Mimio , a provider of interactive teaching technologies for educators, is now extending its Mimio Studio 6 software offering to Mac and Linux users in multiple languages. Available for download on Mimio .com, Studio 6 software allows teachers using Mac, Linux and Windows operating systems to simply create interactive lesson content in multiple languages and provide access to features sure to raise the level of classroom participation.

This announcement comes just in time for the TCEA show in Austin, where Mimio 's products and interactive systems will be on display, February 8-12, at booth 1126.

"We are committed to making Mimio 's product offerings and services accessible to as many educators as possible and in a wide assortment of languages," says Bob Gierschick, Mimio Senior Marketing Manager - Global MarCom. "With the expanded offering of Mimio Studio 6 software, we can help even more educators make lesson content far more interactive and better tailored to the needs of their students. Providing Mimio Studio software for Mac and Linux operating systems plus in multiple languages - including Spanish, French, German, Chinese Simplified and Traditional, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Italian, Dutch and Arabic - is a win for teachers and students alike."

Mimio Interactive and award-winning Studio 6 software turns any dry-erase whiteboard into an interactive whiteboard. The Mimio Interactive system and Mimio Capture Kit, lets educators record dry-erase whiteboard notes and save them in a variety of formats, including PDF, JPEG, and HTML; doing so keeps students focused on the lesson rather than copying notes from the whiteboard to paper. Teachers can also import or drag-and-drop audio, video, and Flash files into Studio 6 software, thereby creating animated presentations that they can play, pause or rewind. The slim and lightweight Mimio Pad wireless tablet gives teachers and students alike access to and control of the Mimio Interactive system from any point in the classroom.

At TCEA, educators can see and try out all Mimio products and learn how the Mimio Interactive system can transform a classroom into an engaging learning environment. To find out more about Mimio activities at the show, please visit www.Mimio .com/tcea.
