Secure and easy to navigate, Philips Genius enables educators to effortlessly create their lesson plans, either directly on an interactive display, or remotely, 24/7, via a web browser, or a dedicated app, compatible with any Android, Windows, and iOS device, for their convenience.

All content is saved to a personal Philips Genius account/library and can be retrieved and displayed on interactive displays with Philips Genius installed within seconds of the educator entering the room. This ensures a speedy and seamless set-up, and consistent experiences in all locations.

Encouraging and facilitating collaboration in the classroom, used together with the Philips Collaboration 4152 and 3152 interactive displays, Philips Genius also brings all the familiarity and functionality of a traditional whiteboard, allowing students to effortlessly—either directly on screen or via their own device—share their ideas and workings. Among the many tools included are digital pencil/pen, highlighter, eraser, images/shapes and lines, ruler, set square (triangle ruler), and protractor.

Additional features, further aiding classroom activities, include a flashlight, calculator, voting application, video conferencing, and much more.
