SMART Board Interactive Whiteboard M600V Series
The M600V series from Smart Technologies is the next generation of its widely successful 600 series interactive whiteboard. Available in the 77 inch M680V and the 87 inch M685V, the M600V Smartboards provide a natural and flexible way work with content while offering ease of use and more functionality than ever. The M600V boards are a more economical version of the M600 series boards offering all of the same capabilities with a pen ledge instead of the electronic pen tray.
Dual touch durability & capability
The surface of the boards is hard coated, steel backed and optimized for projection. It is durable and compatible with dry erase markers. Unlike its predecessor, the M600V Series use Smart’s DViT technology to make the board multi-touch compatible with support for two-touch points. Simultaneously operate the board without any issues or worries as no electronics are in the surface.
MAC / Windows compatible
Mac and Windows gesturing compatible, allowing you to take full advantage of the latest operating systems. Integrated response and user-friendly gestures to increase workflow.
Dual touch capabilities
DViT® technology provides support for two simultaneous touches, making it easy for two students to instantly collaborate, working together at the same time.
Two students can instantly start working together without having to switch to a multi-user mode or work in confined areas of the surface. Switch naturally from collaborating to interacting with lesson content.
The M600V boards no longer ship with the four colored pens with built-in auto detection. Now you get two (2) user-friendly pens and a pen ledge, similar to the marker tray on a dry erase board, which sits in the center of the board and does not run the full width. This means a lower cost for the board. Even though it isn't the electronic pen tray Smart fans are used to, you don't loose anything. You can still use the pens to work the board, you just change colors from the on screen tool bar. You can even "right click" and bring up the on screen keyboard right from the board's work surface.
SMART Notebook Software
Each board ships with Smart Drivers and a license of Smart Notebook software. This includes the popular Smart Ink legibility feature which improves the look of handwriting for easier reading, and also allows writing to become an object in the software, where it can be manipulated.
Enhance instruction with automatic handwriting recognition and conversion combined with intuitive text editing capabilities. Now you can edit, move, delete, modify or insert text objects without reaching for a keyboard. In addition, SMART Notebook includes tools that make creating lessons a simple and intuitive experience. Get started instantly and save time creating and teaching lessons.

Q & A
What is the difference between the SBM680 and SBM680V?
The SBM680V is more economical version of the SBM680. It does not have the electronic pen tray that the SBM680 has. Instead the “V” model has a small pen ledge, or a regular marker board type of pen tray. You still get the two plastic styluses to use with it. You would just do all of your color, eraser, and on screen keyboard selections from on the screen. The SBM680v would not be compatible with the Smart brand projector systems, but we would be happy to find a projector for you that would work great with it.
Is the SBM680V compatible with gesturing?
Yes, Smart's DVIT technology allows this board to me multi touch and compatible with gestures used in Windows and OSX.
Do I need a projector to use the SBM680V?
Yes, a projector is required for use, but not included. If you do not currently have one, please contact us at 866-942-6273. We carry a full line of projectors for literally any application.
Is there a wireless kit available for the SBM680V?
Unfortunately there are no wireless kits available for the SBM600V series. The WC6-D would not work with this board.
How do I use an iPad with the SBM680V? How do I use an Android tablet with the SBM680V?
We recommending using an additional piece of hardware, the WePresent WIPG-1500 which let's you incorporate your iPad and other mobile devices into your presentation.
