New interactive whiteboard supports collaboration

SMART Technologies announces the SMART Board 800 series interactive whiteboard, which supports multiuser writing and common multitouch gestures currently recognized in Microsoft(R) Windows(R) 7 and Mac Snow Leopard(R).

Features include:

  • Multitouch experience -- Enables two users to interact with the interactive whiteboard simultaneously with no special tools or multitouch mode selection required
  • Smart ink -- Ink-smoothing algorithms make handwritten annotations look smother and more refined
  • Object awareness -- Distinguishes between a finger, pen or other object to recognize what action the user is taking
  • Multiuser Pen Tray -- Enables two users to pick up and use a pen tool and begin writing.
  • 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

Additional features will be supported in SMART Notebook 10.7 collaborative learning software upon release, expected by March 2011.
