Create dynamic collaborative work sessions and engaging presentations with the SMART Podium™ 500 series interactive pen display. You can interact with digital content and write over it on the SMART Podium, all while displaying that content on a large screen in the same room or from a remote location.
Built for flexibility
The interactive pen display connects to your computer, so you can interact with media-rich content on a high-definition (HD) widescreen display and share your work on a large screen or interactive whiteboard for everyone to see. And you don't even have to be in the same room – you can share your work remotely using SMART Bridgit conferencing software. Open documents, applications, websites and multimedia files, write notes over them in digital ink and save your work for distribution or later reference. The versatile 500 series display supports collaboration in virtually any workspace, from small meeting rooms or home offices to large auditoriums. It can add flexibility to meeting rooms already equipped with SMART Board interactive whiteboards, because you can work with content from anywhere in the room and display it on the interactive whiteboard. Remote or home office workers can use SMART Podium to share screens and write over content as if they were in the room, increasing their level of participation and engagement.
A powerful presentation tool
With the SMART Podium interactive pen display, you can control presentation material while facing your audience. Because all of your content is in front of you and projected onto a large screen, you won't need to turn away from your audience or become distracted by a computer and mouse. The display's tethered pen acts as a mouse to navigate content on your screen – simply touch the interactive screen with the tethered pen to control computer applications and write notes in multiple digital ink colors over applications, slides, websites and videos. The Smooth Tilt Stand helps support a natural writing posture, while intuitive function buttons – illuminated for dimly lit rooms – enable you to change ink colors, erase, highlight and emphasize content, access the mouse function, and save and share your work instantly.
With this type of control over your digital resources, you can focus on keeping your audience engaged by demonstrating ideas and concepts more effectively, highlighting key points as they come up and capturing comments and questions.
Easy to save, easy to share
The SMART Podium 500 series interactive pen display is integrated with SMART Meeting Pro software, which lets you write in digital ink over any document, application or website, or capture notes as a screenshot and save them as a PDF or PPT file. Marked-up pages, revised documents, diagrams, notes and comments can all be captured easily and sent to meeting participants by e-mail. You can mark up files in common applications, including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio or OneNote and Adobe Acrobat Pro, and SMART Meeting Pro software will insert and save your work in the original file
It's all in the details
Available in widescreen 18.5" (47 cm) or 24" (61 cm) displays, with a native 16:9 widescreen resolution, the 500 series is ideal for displaying and manipulating HD material in fine detail. The interactive pen display has flexible scaling options to support 16:10 and 4:3 resolutions. It can connect to your computer and projector by DVI, HDMI or VGA. There are three high-speed USB 2.0 ports to connect peripherals such as USB drives, document cameras or personal mobile devices. The 500 series is also HDCP-compliant to ensure smooth and secure transfer of digitally copyrighted materials between your computer and SMART Podium.
