SMART introduces next-generation interactive whiteboard system
The SMARTBOARD U100-SB800 projector retrofit kit is designed for existing SMART SB885 installation. The next-generation SMART Board® interactive whiteboard system offers the new ultra-short throw SMART U100w projector. The SMART U100w projector provides an ultra-bright height resolution wide screen image on a short boom, delivering height definition, high performance interactivity that is virtually free of shadows or glare. The U100 is measured at 3,600 lumens in standard mode and a long-lasting lamp that provides up to 5,000 hours in standard mode and 6,500 hours in economy mode. The lamp life in economy mode represents an improvement of more than 100 percent compared to previous SMART UX80 projector models, reducing classroom downtime and maintenance costs.
HD-ready with dual HDMI and USB connectivity
Educators and administrators will find the U100 easier to use and maintain as it features easy boom adjustments with a new centralized dial system, on-board quality diagnostics and improved user alerts. With dual HDMI and USB connectivity, the U100 is also wireless-ready, providing customers with the option to connect a wireless media streaming device. And the updated design boasts a significantly reduced footprint - 67 percent smaller by volume than previous SMART UX80 projector models, as well as a front-facing 9 Watt speaker for clear audio throughout the classroom. Available with the SMART Board SBX885, this new projector enables an enriched interactive whiteboard experience that offers significant enhancements compared to previous systems, but at a reduced price. The U100 is backed by a standard three-year projector warranty with optional one- and two-year extensions available.
Intuitive and easy-to-use
As with all SMART education solutions, this next-generation interactive whiteboard system is intuitive and easy-to-use, allowing students to learn naturally, without the technology becoming a distraction. All systems come with SMART Notebook® collaborative learning software. The SMART Notebook allows educators to easily create engaging, interactive learning experiences while providing the flexibility to respond to the needs of learners in real-time. Educators also have access to the SMART Exchange™ online education community, where over one million educators connect, share and download high-quality digital resources. Additionally, the new interactive whiteboard systems come with a one-year subscription to Notebook Advantage, which enables schools and districts to access the new features in SMART Notebook, along with a comprehensive suite of plug-ins, widgets, learning content and subject-specific add-ons.
