What if I want to wall-mount my display?
We do not recommend wall-mounting technology for several reasons:

(1) Wall-mounting technology is an extra and costly service that OIIT technicians do not handle.

(2) Environmental challenges like asbestos in older buildings or concrete walls can hinder mounting options, with power availability also being a concern.

(3) Facilities Management must conduct on-site evaluations for wall-mounting, ensuring alignment with long-term plans, compliance with safety and fire codes, structural feasibility, and electrical needs (costing $1,000+).

(4) Due to liability, contracted insured professionals must perform this work. 

(5) Consider future transitions as well, as moving or remounting boards will incur additional school costs.

To proceed with wall-mounting options, contact us at Our partner vendor will conduct an on-site evaluation to assess feasibility, required items/services, and costs. Schools must ensure installation approval, proximity of electrical outlets, and safe board placement. 
What can I do with my interactive board?
There are three main apps we recommend using:

vCast: Users can cast a screen to or receive a screen from a ViewBoard. If casting from a Windows or Mac device, touchback is supported. Click here to visit the ViewSonic Viewboard: vCast video tutorial.

Whiteboard: A visual teaching tool for preparation, presentation and participation in the classroom and beyond. Click here to visit the ViewSonic Viewboard: Whiteboard Overview video tutorial. ***BPS does not currently allow Google integration/sign-in due to security concerns.

Display: Allows users to mirror/cast their computer wirelessly.  Click here to visit the ViewSonic Viewboard: Using myViewBoard Display video tutorial.
***Important Info About Signing Into The Display
Avoid signing into the ViewBoard with your credentials (username & password). For safer usage, please cast your device to the board instead.
