SMART Introduces a New Class of Interactive Whiteboard

Advanced partner SMART is pleased to introduce the SMART Board™ 800 series interactive whiteboard, a new  series that will provide the most natural and intuitive user experience yet on a SMART Board interactive whiteboard. By enabling two students to work simultaneously on the board, the new 800 series extends the company’s leading interactive whiteboard product line to offer true student collaboration. The SMART Board 800 series interactive whiteboard recognizes common multitouch gestures currently recognized in Microsoft® Windows® 7 and Mac Snow Leopard®. SMART Notebook™ 10.7 collaborative learning software will support certain features, such as freestyle interactions, touch gestures and full object awareness upon the release of updated software (SMART Notebook 10.7) expected by March 2011, which will allow SMART Board 800 series users to take full advantage of gestures while working through SMART Notebook lesson activities. This SMART Board interactive whiteboard will allow two students to write with a pen, erase with their palms, and move objects with their fingers without a multimode mode selection.

  Multitouch experience Enables two users to interact with the interactive whiteboard simultaneously with no special tools or multimode mode selection required
  Freestyle interaction * – Enables two users to work together, performing different tasks, anywhere on the board (SMART Notebook software version 10.7 only)
  SMART ink Ink-smoothing algorithms make handwritten annotations look smoother and more refined
  Touch gestures * – Accepts common multitouch gestures currently recognized in Microsoft Windows 7 and Mac Snow Leopard, including one- and two-finger gestures, such as pinching, zooming and tossing. Gestures will be available for use in Notebook lesson activities after the release of SMART Notebook software version 10.7
  Object awareness – Distinguishes between a touch input and object input, recognizing two different input devices – such as a pen tool and a touch input – for a more natural user experience
  Multiuser Pen Tray Enables two users to pick up and use a pen tool and begin writing. Easy-to-use buttons on the Pen Tray make switching ink color, right-mouse clicks and accessing the on-screen keyboard effortless
  Durable surface – Surface is optimized for projection, producing no hot spots, and is compatible with dry-erase markers
  Modular design – Pen Tray enables the quick and easy integration of accessories, such as SMART projector controls
  Locking pen mode – Locks the SMART Board interactive whiteboard in pen mode so students can write, draw and make annotations with a finger, pen tool or other object
  Warranty – Includes two-year standard warranty and five-year warranty with product registration
  SMART product integration Seamless integration with the full range of SMART hardware and software products, including SMART Notebook software version 10.6 or later. Full gesture recognition and multiuser functionality is available using SMART Notebook 10.7 collaborative learning software

* Feature will be supported in SMART Notebook software upon release of updated software (SMART Notebook 10.7), expected by March 2011.
