V Chapter 1: Introduction Read this section for an introduction to the mimio Studio software and basic terminology. 1.1.
What is mimio Studio? mimio Studio is a suite of software tools that allow you to capture, create, and present information. When used with mimio hardware and a data projector, mimio Studio turns your whiteboard into a powerful interactive presentation tool. Without a projector, mimio Studio records handwritten notes and drawings directly from your mimio enabled whiteboard. Without mimio hardware, mimio Studio can be used to prepare presentations and manipulate previously created content. 1.2.
Important Terminology Recording Mode – mimio Studio is being used to record notes and drawings from your whiteboard. In this mode, the mimio hardware is being used without a data projector. The mimio stylus pens are used with dry erase markers to write and the mimio eraser is used to erase. Interactive Mode – mimio Studio is being used to control, interact, and annotate the Windows Desktop and its applications. In this mode, the mimio hardware is being used with a data projector. The mimioMouse insert is used in a mimio stylus pen as a mouse. Digital Ink – Data captured during the Recording Mode. 1.3.

Troubleshooting your mimio Xi and mimioBoard This section describes common mimio Xi and mimioBoard problems and how they can be solved. If recorded digital ink appears spotty or erratic: •
•
Check to see if a “Wattstopper” brand motion detector is being used in the room or office. It is unfortunately not possible for the Wattstopper device and mimio capture device to operate simultaneously in the same room. It is possible to replace the “Wattstopper” units with “SensorSwitch” (http://www.sensorswitch.com/) units that are compatible with mimio devices. Check to see if the mimio is exposed to direct sunlight. Direct sunlight onto the mimio can result in the IR sensors getting ʺfloodedʺ with IR and thus cause the mimio capture device to not function. Reposition the whiteboard or the mimio out of the direct sunlight or pull down the shades or close the blinds in the room. 13.2.
