CALGARY, Alberta, Dec. 14, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SMART Technologies (Nasdaq:SMT) (TSX:SMA) announces the SMART Board 400 series interactive whiteboard, SMART's new line of entry-level interactive whiteboards and interactive whiteboard systems. The 400 series extends the company's interactive whiteboard product line, which includes the SMART Board 600 series interactive whiteboard and the new SMART Board 800 series interactive whiteboard. Using SMART's patented DViT (Digital Vision Touch) technology, the 400 series offers a rich user experience, recognizing both pen and finger inputs, and enabling teachers and students to easily interact with digital content. The series comprises the SMART Board 480 interactive whiteboard, the SMART Board 480iv interactive whiteboard system with short-throw SMART V25 projector, and the SMART Board 480iv-A interactive whiteboard system with SMART V25 projector and integrated speakers. All three products will be available in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), Asia Pacific, Latin America and Mexico in January 2011.

The SMART Board 400 series interactive whiteboard is ideal for educators who want a cost-effective, entry-level interactive whiteboard or interactive whiteboard system. The 400 series supports both the Microsoft ® Windows ® and Linux ® operating systems and ships with award-winning SMART Notebook collaborative learning software, used by educators in more than 175 countries to create and deliver interactive lessons. The 400 series offers a 4:3 aspect ratio and standard display size of 77" (195.6 cm) on the diagonal, and integrates seamlessly with SMART's other education products, including the SMART Document Camera , SMART Notebook Math Tools software and SMART Response interactive response systems.

"Demand for interactive whiteboards and interactive whiteboard systems continues to increase in EMEA, Asia Pacific, Latin America and Mexico, where educators require easy-to-use, cost-effective products that make the most of both their class time and limited budgets," says Nancy Knowlton, SMART's CEO. "These new, entry-level products help ensure that educators with limited resources still have the opportunity to put leading-edge technology products into their classrooms."
