Appliance computing device
SMART's purpose-built computing device eliminates the need for a dedicated meeting room computer. Users can collaborate immediately without logging on to a computer or network. They can capture their notes and save documents to a USB drive or a network share drive, or send them by e-mail.
Users can collaborate immediately with virtually unlimited whiteboarding space, reference existing content by viewing PDFs and presentations, or browse the Web with HTML 5 compatibility.
The locked-down system design prevents software and malware installations that could affect consistency and reliability. This ensures the appliance starts up quickly and provides immediate access to its whiteboarding and collaboration tools.
Multitouch surface with object awareness
Appliance-based interactive displays use SMART’s proprietary DViT (Digital Vision Touch) technology to track and identify the actions of two users – DViT recognizes when users switch between a finger, a pen or an eraser. Two people can also write with a pen, erase with their palms or fists and move objects with their fingers independently – without having to press buttons or access on-screen menus.
Two people can instantly start working individually or together to complete actions such as writing in digital ink or moving objects with their fingers. It’s perfect for freestyle collaboration and brainstorming.
SMART's interactive displays offer the familiar experience of other touch-enabled devices. They make it easy to work with content in an extraordinarily natural way using simple, intuitive hand and finger gestures, including one- and two-finger navigational gestures like panning and flicking pages, and object gestures like zoom, toss and rotate. They also support touch gestures found in Microsoft Windows 7.
Accessible collaboration features
All the tools you need to interact are right at your fingertips. The pens and eraser are conveniently located at the front of the interactive whiteboard or flat panel, and you can also access buttons to select the color, launch the On-Screen Keyboard and use the right-click and help functions. You can connect USB devices and switch between them easily, and volume controls are located at the front for quick access.
SMART Meeting Pro software
Included in every Freestorm system, SMART Meeting Pro software offers advanced collaboration tools, virtually unlimited whiteboarding space and the ability to capture images and write notes over any application using SMART Ink. This intuitive software is also integrated with Microsoft Exchange to streamline your meetings and allow quick distribution of meeting notes.
SMART GoWire auto-launch cable
Connect a guest laptop to the interactive whiteboard or flat panel and you can run SMART Meeting Pro software with no installation required. It’s perfect for workspaces that are not network-enabled or where guest laptops are frequently connected.
