Display overlay adds touch and ink interactivity

SMART Technologies Inc. announces the new SMART Board 400 series interactive display overlay, which can be added to virtually any LCD or plasma flat-panel display to enable touch and ink interactivity.

It features SMART's patented DViT® (Digital Vision Touch) technology, which enables effective touch control and supports common multitouch gestures, such as zooming and scrolling, currently recognized by the Microsoft® Windows® 7 operating system. The new overlay includes either SMART Notebook™ collaborative learning software for education customers or Meeting Pro™ software and the GoWire™ auto-launch cable for business and government customers, for collaboration in both meeting spaces and classrooms.

Features include:

  • Flexible sizing - Available in 12 sizes to fit most commercial flat-panel displays
  • Precision touch - Provides direct, precise touch control
  • SMART Ink™ - Enables users to write notes in digital ink over any document, application or website on the interactive display overlay and save them as a screen shot in a PDF or PPT file
  • Touch gestures - Enables the use of simple hand and finger gestures to toss, rotate or zoom in and out on objects, and to interact within Microsoft Windows 7 multitouch-enabled applications
  • Protective surface - Scratch-resistant tempered glass protects the display surface
