DViT (Digital Vision Touch) technology

Interactive whiteboards and interactive whiteboard systems with DViT technology use cameras embedded in the interactive whiteboard frame to detect and distinguish inputs made by a finger, fist, interactive whiteboard pen or other object. Optical touch technology offers many advantages over other touch technologies, including effortless zero-force touch, the ability to scale to large sizes and support for multiple touches and multiple users. Globally, SMART has been issued a broad portfolio of patents related to DViT technology with a significant number of patents pending.
