For those of you who regularly read my blogs you’ll remember I recently wrote about the SMART kapp product, the amazing new digital dry erase board, if you missed it you can read it here. Not resting on their laurels SMART is expanding its SMART kapp portfolio of digital capture and collaboration displays with the SMART kapp iQ, this is an ultra-high-definition (UHD) 4k display that combines the original SMART kapp whiteboard functionality with multiway, multidevice collaboration. The product comes in 2 sizes 55” or 65” in diameter. This product is a big game changer for SMART as it can sit in the corporate meeting space or the classroom very easily. This product really enables collaboration through BYOD in the office or the classroom.
Kapp iQ will connect via your existing Android or iOS device, allowing users to invite any web device (remote or on site) to join for real-time collaboration session. Anything written on the display is broadcast to anyone, anywhere in the world; people joining can make notes on their own devices that immediately display back on the kapp iQ. The kapp iQ uses the existing SMART kapp app available free on Google Play or Apple App Store and with upcoming IQ premium features such as digital inking over content.
SMART kapp iQ also allows business people, students and teachers to:
- Digitally save work as a PDF
- Walk up and use — pick up a pen and start writing on the display;
- Re-open whiteboard files in future meetings;
- Use different ink colours to illustrate ideas;
- Operate the board without IT involvement or complicated configuration; just hang it on the wall and plug it into the mains!
- Upgrade to the Plus subscription to unlock additional collaboration features such as larger collaborative sessions.
The really great news for education customers because the kapp iQ uses the same panel technology as the SMARTBoard 6000 series, you can make your SMARTBoard 6000 into a kapp iQ with an easy to fit plug-in appliance.
