SMART Board 8070i interactive display
SMART Technologies Inc. announces two SMART collaboration systems for business, fully integrated solutions designed to enhance collaboration in interactive meeting spaces. There are two SMART collaboration systems, one with the SMART Board885ix interactive whiteboard system and one with the SMART Board 8070i interactive display.
Both systems ship with SMART Meeting Pro 2.2 software and the SMART GoWire auto-launch cable, which also comes with SMART Meeting Pro software. Both the SMART Board 885ix interactive whiteboard system and the SMART Board 8070i interactive display support common multitouch gestures currently recognized in the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system. Using SMART’s patented DViT (Digital Vision Touch) technology, the interactive whiteboard system and the interactive display deliver an exceptional multitouch, multiuser writing experience, enabling two users to create and interact with digital content simultaneously.
The 885ix and 8070i also offer object awareness, a feature that provides an intuitive experience and enables users to interact with digital content using their fingers, pens, fists or erasers interchangeably. Both SMART collaboration systems for business are now available globally.
The SMART Board 885ix interactive whiteboard system includes an 87" (221 cm) widescreen interactive whiteboard with 16:10 aspect ratio, ultra-short-throw projector and extended control panel (ECP). The SMART Board 8070i interactive display offers a high-definition, 1080p, 70" (177.8 cm) display with 16:9 aspect ratio and features a sleek, contemporary design. The SMART GoWire cable, a 7' (2.13 m) software-enabled USB cable, automatically launches SMART Meeting Pro software when connected to a user’s laptop and a SMART Board interactive whiteboard or SMART Board interactive display. The SMART GoWire cable is available with either SMART Meeting Pro or SMART Meeting Pro Premium and enables laptop users to display the laptop’s files on a large interactive surface. SMART Meeting Pro Premium 2.2 software supports common multitouch gestures and is specifically designed to enable users to write over any application using digital ink.
With SMART Meeting Pro Premium, users can insert digital ink directly into common applications, including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote and Visio. Using SMART Bridgit4.2 conferencing software with SMART Meeting Pro or SMART Meeting Pro Premium, meeting participants can automatically and securely connect to a remote meeting from anywhere in the world to share, and write over and interact with digital documents, reducing the need for travel.

“The SMART Board 8070i interactive display provides the perfect interactive interface to our tactical map software and is the perfect collaborative solution to complement our software capabilities,” says Sascha Pomp, Marketing Manager, Software, for MSA International in Halstenbek, Germany. MSA International began testing the SMART Board 8070i interactive display in November 2010. “The intuitive interactive display enables clear, concise control of our MSA TecBOS tactical mapping software, and the enhanced interactivity offered by the easy-to-use SMART Meeting Pro software enables our customers to focus on managing their work, rather than troubleshooting technology.”
“Organizations are searching for easy-to-use interactive technology products that will enhance collaboration and increase meeting efficiency and effectiveness,” says Nancy Knowlton, SMART’s CEO. “Our collaboration systems were specifically developed with these needs in mind, making it easy for people in businesses of all kinds to interact with digital content – and each other.”
