Product Name: SMART amp
SMART amp is a revolutionary, cloud-based collaborative learning software that enables students and teachers to work together in real time to solve problems and understand concepts in huge shared workspaces, easily building on existing ideas and creating new thinking. Available to use on virtually any internet-enabled device, SMART amp allows users to explore and build content without switching between applications. The collaborative workspace serves as a platform where students can gather, create and consume content while easily sharing it across devices. Teachers can gauge student progress exactly when they need to with embedded formative assessment tools. It's easy to get an accurate picture of how well students are following lesson material and adjust instruction accordingly, without interrupting the lesson activity.

Product Name: SMART Board
A catalyst for class participation, the SMART Board interactive whiteboard offers intuitive design and an engaging digital workspace. Touch-enabled, it is ideal for multi-student collaboration and small group learning. With teachers as guides, using the SMART Board encourages critical thinking and problem-solving, sparking better learning outcomes for all.
Available with or without an attached SMART projector, display sizes are 77 inches or 87 inches on the diagonal. All SMART Board interactive displays and interactive flat panels are powered by SMART Notebook, the world's most popular collaborative learning software, which allows teachers to create and deliver engaging lessons.

Product Name: SMART Board interactive flat panel
For educators who want to provide immersive learning in vivid detail, SMART offers the SMART Board 6065 interactive flat panel. Featuring ultra-HD 4K resolution, lessons spring to life all without the need for a separate or attached projector. Measuring 65 inches on the diagonal, a low-friction coated surface enables touch functionality that’s more natural and seamless than ever before. Users can go from pen to fingers to the palm of your hand with object awareness while being able to flick, rotate, zoom, and erase using natural touch gestures that are intuitive and easy to use.

Product Name: SMART kapp digital capture board
SMART kapp is a revolutionary replacement for the traditional dry erase board and just as easy to use. SMART kapp users write, draw, diagram and brainstorm using an ink marker, just as they would with a dry-erase board. But with SMART kapp, co-workers and clients can follow the process in real-time, where everything appears as if by magic on their digital devices. The work is simply saved with SMART’s advanced software and then as a final product as PDFs or JPEGs and then easily shared with anyone, anywhere, instantly. The secret to being able to capture, save and share content is in the SMART kapp app. Currently available as a free download for iOS and Android users (with Windows mobile support coming soon), the SMART kapp app enables users to pair their tablets or smartphones to a SMART kapp board with a scan of its unique QR code or a tap of its NFC tag. The app activates live web-sharing with up to five users, access to the snapshot library, PDF and JPEG save & share, and Evernote™.

Product Name: SMART Room System for Microsoft Lync
The SMART Room System (SRS) for Microsoft Lync allows users to turn a standard business meeting into a intuitive, collaborative and productive experience for participants in the meeting room or those joining remotely. Available in six different sizes and configurations, of interactive displays, the SRS also includes a camera, two table-top microphones, an administrative console, integrated speakers and a wall mount. Combined with SMART Meeting Pro software the SRS is easy-to-use with meetings starting with the touch of a finger.

Product Name: SMART Visual Collaboration Solutions
The SMART Visual Collaboration Solution, featuring the innovative Unbound Workspace, uses SMART Board interactive flat panels to enable levels of content interaction never before seen in a business setting. Whether in a hallway brainstorming session, a meeting room or in a remote location, users have the ability to simply pick up a pen or use their finger to work collaboratively with complex visual data. That way everyone can contribute to the meeting – upending disengagement and freeing knowledge workers from unproductive meetings.
