SMART enables multitouch collaboration

The new SMART Board 800 interactive whiteboard series extends the company’s product line to offer true student collaboration. It supports multi-user writing and common multitouch gestures currently recognised in Microsoft Windows 7 and Apple Snow Leopard.

Multitouch SMART Notebook lesson activities enable enhanced collaboration, giving more students hands-on time at the interactive whiteboard. 
SMART’s own DViT (Digital Vision Touch) technology enables many of the features offered by the SMART Board 800 series interactive whiteboard. DViT technology uses proprietary digital cameras and sophisticated software to recognise a finger touch, stylus, pointer or other object input on the interactive whiteboard surface. The digital cameras are positioned in each corner of the interactive whiteboard frame, and communicate input information back to a digital signal processor to determine the exact point of contact.
