Unifi projector combines with SMART Boards to create integrated system

smart-board-600i.JPGCALGARY, Alberta — May 14, 2008 — SMART Technologies announces that its new Unifi™ 45 projector is now compatible with its most popular SMART Board™ 500 and 600 series interactive whiteboards. Now schools can add a Unifi 45 projector to their existing interactive whiteboards to create an integrated system. The option applies to SMART Board 560, 580, 660 and 680 interactive whiteboards. SMART Board 500 series interactive whiteboards were sold until 2002, when the new series 600 boards were introduced. The 340,000 SMART customers who purchased 500 series interactive whiteboards and all 600 series customers will be able to take advantage of the offer.

Launched in 2006, the SMART Board 600i interactive whiteboard system quickly became one of the most sought-after classroom technology solutions. The second-generation system, now equipped with the Unifi 45 – a short-throw, high-offset projector that reduces shadows cast onto the interactive whiteboard and offers a bright image and true color quality. Its unique collapsible boom also protects the system from deliberate damage. The control panel below the interactive whiteboard allows teachers to turn the entire system on or off with one button, eliminating the need for a remote control. Teachers can easily connect a laptop or switch between peripherals, such as MP3 players, document cameras and DVD players. The addition of a SMART classroom audio system or USB speakers addresses sound quality issues, ensuring that everything that needs to be heard is heard.
