Smart Technologies announces the release of its new rear projection Smart Board 4000i interactive whiteboard. A touch-sensitive display, the 4000i has the highest resolution and the largest screen size in its class. New features include a 3000-lumen SXGA DLP projector (1400×1050 resolution) with a short-throw lens and a contrast ratio of 2500:1. The 4000i also comes with new screen technology that delivers uniform, ultra-crisp visuals for applications, such as GIS (Geographic Information Systems), used during briefings, debriefings, and command-and-control operations.
The 4000i features a high-resolution, 66in. (168 cm) shadow-free screen, housed in an all-in-one mobile multimedia cabinet. Integrated projector controls are located at the front of the unit to make start-up and operation simple and convenient. Users control computer applications and access files and the Internet simply by touching the interactive whiteboard. No special tools are required to write in digital ink over software applications, including moving video. Notes can be edited, saved, printed, and posted online or e-mailed for future reference.
By using Bridgit conferencing software with the 4000i, users can create a truly collaborative environment. Bridgit software allows users to quickly and easily share real-time voice, video, and data. Users can take over applications on a participant’s computer or write notes in digital ink for all conference participants to see.
“The new 4000i demonstrates Smart’s continuing commitment to developing and enhancing Smart Board interactive whiteboards to meet the needs of our customers,” says Nancy Knowlton, Smart’s president and co-CEO. “The large-screen format and unsurpassed image quality of the 4000i make it an ideal solution for military applications that require high-resolution interactive displays.”
