MimioProjector. Despite the company's limited projector experience the MimioProjector is a highly attractive product, and not just for the classroom but for business conference rooms as well.
The Mimio Projector delivers some notable improvements over models from companies known for projectors, largely because even though it's built around a 1280x800 DLP chip, it uses an IR camera instead of TI's interactive technology.
The camera comes as a separate module that fully integrates with the projector. Among other benefits, that lets you buy the projector and then add the camera later without the addition working like a bolted-on afterthought. It also gives you interactivity at the projector's full brightness, which we measured at just a little below its rated 2800 lumens.
All this makes the MimioProjector a solid value, at prices ranging from $1,329 list for the projector itself to $1,899 with the interactive module and two pens -- with education prices ranging from $999 to $1,499. There's also a modest savings for buying everything together instead of separately, although the wall mount is extra in any case.
