SMART and Cisco deliver interactive collaboration

SMART Technologies has announced that its SMART Board 600 and 800 series interactive whiteboards and SMART Board interactive displays can now be combined with Cisco TelePresence systems for interactive collaboration.

The joint solution, designed to allow real-time collaboration across multiple locations via content sharing, live annotations and telepresence technologies, allows customers to split their screen between video and data.

The integration allows an interactive collaboration with note- and application-sharing while communicating directly. Cisco TelePresence Synch enables engagement with open applications on the interactive whiteboard or display and with high-definition audio and visual telepresence.
