New Studio 6 software for Mac and Linux users and Mimio Connect™ community site help teachers to think outside the classroom

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - June 29, 2009 - Mimio , a leading provider of interactive teaching technology, will unveil the latest version of its Studio 6 software for Mac and Linux users and introduce its new Mimio Connect (http://www.Mimio connect.com) educator community website at the National Educational Computing Conference in Washington, D.C. The new generation of Studio 6 interactive teaching technology software, is designed to work with the three most popular operating systems available, enabling any classroom to become a Mimio - enabled interactive environment. At booth 2236, attendees can experience first-hand Mimio's interactive teaching technologies, meet Mimio masters, play along with an assortment of Mimio interactive tools and register on the Mimio Connect site.

"We are pleased to introduce our newest version of Mimio Studio 6 software to the Mac and Linux communities as well as launch our new Mimio Connect educator community site, says Mel Jackson, general manager, Mimio . "The Mimio engineering team’s goal was to deliver a single software solution that provides all of the features and functions Mimio users have come to enjoy with the flexibility to work in any one of three operating environments; Windows, Mac OS X or Linux. Mel added, "Now, nearly all users, regardless of operating system can enjoy the wide assortment of Mimio Studio design and delivery features. Whether a school is running Windows, Mac OS X or Linux or a combination of operating systems, the Mimio tool bars and software features have a familiar look. And if you create a lesson in one environment, you can be confident it will run on the other operating environment. Studio 6 software provides a nice balance between performance and value."

Mimio's free online education community site, Mimio Connect.com allows teachers from anywhere in the world to share their ideas, lesson innovations, expertise and enthusiasm. Mel notes that, "the Mimio Connect community was a natural and eagerly anticipated addition to Mimio's product and service offerings. Mimio Connect.com is a teacher-centric site in the very best sense of the term." Educators can register for Mimio Connect.com at the Mimio booth at NECC or directly on the site.
