SMART Adds Four New Models to Collaboration Systems for Business
By pushing a single button, the projector, appliance and interactive whiteboard or display are activated, so users can immediately begin collaborating and capturing ideas. The SMART Board interactive whiteboard or display allows users to manipulate and write over digital content. By connecting a laptop using the SMART GoWire cable, users can insert handwritten content directly into AutoCAD® files and most Microsoft® software applications, including PowerPoint®, Excel® and Word. These annotations and any documents opened or created during the meeting can be captured and e-mailed to meeting participants or saved to a USB key. When the collaboration system is used in conjunction with SMART Bridgit™ conferencing software, local and remote participants can view and share documents. For more information on the new appliance-based SMART collaboration systems for business, visit smarttech.com/business. “Organizations around the world are increasingly seeking interactive products that offer easy-to-use tools that enhance collaboration and help them make the most of meeting time,” says Linda Thomas, Vice President, Products, SMART Technologies. “Our four new appliance-based collaboration systems have been developed specifically to support the needs of business users, ensuring that their files and confidential meeting notes remain secure, whether they collaborate in the same room or over distance.”
