Movea Partners with The Douglas Stewart Company for Education Distribution of Gyration Products
Movea Expands Its Presence in Helping Educators Deliver
Interactive Lectures and Presentations
MILPITAS, Calif., January 6, 2011 – Movea, Inc., the pioneer in motion-sensing technology for business communications, home entertainment and computer peripherals, today announced it has partnered with The Douglas Stewart Company, a leading distributor and marketer of computer products, consumer electronics and school supplies, to bring its world-class Air Mouse™ Elite and Air Mouse GO Plus products by Gyration to the classroom. Both mice fully support Windows and Mac, and are available individually or accompanied with a wireless keyboard.
With these air mice, educators use natural hand movements to drive more powerful presentation delivery and more interactive classroom lectures, and their 100ft. range and no line-of-sight requirements gives educators the freedom to move around the room to captivate and engage students with interactive, multimedia lessons.
Gyration air mice enable an educator to turn the mouse cursor into a highlighter, laser pointer or pen, or gently swipe it in-air to activate embedded media and other special effects. Since multiple air mice can connect to one computer, teachers can also distribute them to the class and allow students to engage in simulations, modeling, and peer collaboration.
“We’re excited to partner with The Douglas Stewart Company to make it even easier for educators to access our powerful Gyration products to bring multimodal, interactive learning to students in the classroom,” said Bryan Hoadley, executive vice president of worldwide sales and General Manager of Movea, Inc. “This partnership extends our existing presence in the education market, where we are proud to be known for our quality of products and responding to the needs of teachers and professors everywhere.”
“We continually search for the best technology to empower educators in the classroom and are pleased to offer Movea’s Gyration products that enable interactive learning for students,” said Jack Bahlman, senior vice president of Merchandising and Marketing at The Douglas Stewart Company.
Gyration, the leading brand name in motion-sensing consumer electronics, is owned by Movea SA. Gyration’s computer peripherals and digital media controllers are offered by Movea Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Movea SA, and are sold through traditional and online retail consumer electronics stores, value added resellers, system integrators and OEM partners.
