SMART Technologies Inc.
SMART Technologies Inc. (www.smarttech.com/2000i) has designed its Rear Projection SMART Board 2000i interactive, mobile whiteboard for educators. It combines the benefits of a large, shadow-free, touch-sensitive display with a height-adjustable design, which allows teachers to adjust the screen with the turn of a handle. The 2000i features the company's DViT (digital vision touch) technology, which provides superior image quality and precise touch control, along with SMART Board software, which teachers can use to access, control or write over the top of any computer application, including Internet and CD-ROM resources, and save the notes to a single file. Users can also write on any application in electronic ink with either their finger or the stylus. The 2000i offers a 66" diagonal screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio and an integrated SVGA (upgradeable to an XGA ) projector with a short-throw lens.
