Smart introduces new digital capture board

Calgary-based visual collaboration provider Smart Technologies, inventor of the Smart Board interactive whiteboard, has released its new “Smart kapp” digital capture board.

The company says that Smart kapp allows users to write, draw and capture ideas using ordinary dry erase Smart ink markers as they would on dry-erase boards. Images can be saved, converted to PDF format and shared.

“Smart kapp eliminates the ineffective practice of photographing whiteboards and flipcharts or furiously typing notes during meetings to save and share valuable information and insights,” the company says.

The new product enhances collaboration with for users in remote locations, enabling them to follow and take part in collaborative sessions in real time. “Notes from Smart kapp appear real-time on your own device as well as remote participants’ computers, tablets or smart phones.” the company says

Smart kapp can be wirelessly connected to mobile devices and doesn’t require additional IT integration.

“Smart kapp creates a brand new category that is set to open up incredible possibilities for the millions of people who regularly share information on a dry erase board,” said Neil Gaydon, president and CEO of Smart Technologies. “Smart kapp relegates dry-erase boards to a bygone era and brings the ability to simply share information to a whole new level.”

Product specs, sizes, pricing, purchasing information and availability will be announced at InfoComm, which takes place June 18-20 in Las Vegas.
