Smart goes corporate with whiteboard products

Smart Technologies is targeting corporate markets with two interactive whiteboard products: Smart Board 885ix system and Smart Board 8070i display.

The products support common multitouch gestures recognised in the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system.

Both the interactive whiteboard system and display use Smart’s DViT (Digital Vision Touch) technology to support multitouch, multiuser writing and object awareness. Object awareness enables users to interact with digital content using their fingers, fists, pens or erasers interchangeably and allows two users to work simultaneously at the interactive whiteboard system or interactive display.

The Smart Board 885ix interactive whiteboard system is fully integrated and includes an 87” (221 cm) widescreen interactive whiteboard with 16:10 aspect ratio, ultra-short-throw projector and extended control panel (ECP). The Smart Board 8070i interactive display offers a high definition 70” (177.8cm) display with 16:9 aspect ratio.

Both the whiteboard system and display ship with Smart Meeting Pro software and can be used in conjunction with Smart Bridgit conferencing software and Smart Meeting Pro Premium software. This enables meeting participants to automatically connect from anywhere in the world to share and interact with digital documents.
