New SMART Products For Business Support Enhanced Collaboration

NEW YORK, Dec. 8, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SMART Technologies (Nasdaq:SMT) (TSX:SMA) announces two new interactive products for business that are designed to enhance interactivity and collaboration. 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, enabling multiple users to create and interact with digital content simultaneously. Using SMART's patented DViT (Digital Vision Touch) technology, both the interactive whiteboard system and the interactive display deliver an exceptional touch experience that supports multitouch, multiuser writing and object awareness. Object awareness enables users to interact with digital content using their fingers, fists, pens or erasers interchangeably and allows two users to work simultaneously at the interactive whiteboard system or interactive display. Both the 885ix and the 8070i will be available globally by the end of January 2011.

The SMART Board 885ix interactive whiteboard system is a fully integrated, easy-to-use system that 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 70" (177.8 cm) display with 16:9 aspect ratio and features a sleek, contemporary design to complement the business environment. Both the interactive whiteboard system and the interactive display ship with SMART Meeting Pro™ software, which is specifically designed to facilitate meeting management and enable effective and efficient multitouch collaboration. Used in conjunction with SMART Bridgit™ conferencing software and SMART Meeting Pro™ Premium software, meeting participants can automatically connect from anywhere in the world to share and interact with digital documents, minimizing the need for travel. Additional information on both products can be found at

"The SMART Board 8070i interactive display is a beautiful, powerful, yet simple solution for meeting spaces at our corporate headquarters," says Amin Ladha, Systems Analyst Corporate IT Operations at Enbridge Inc., in Calgary, Canada. "The integrated design, intuitive SMART Meeting Pro software, object recognition and multiuser support really complements the way our staff want to interact and collaborate."
