Write in digital ink on the whiteboarding area, or over any application, document or web page. You and your remote colleagues can make notes for everyone to see in real time. Then save them in the native file format.

Easy whiteboarding

Automatic meeting start up Start your meeting instantly just by logging in to your meeting room computer. SMART Meeting Pro and Microsoft Lync launch automatically, connecting you to your meeting. Then all you need to do is start your video and share your desktop.
One-touch desktop sharing Share your screen with a single touch. You can share a variety of information with participants – from spreadsheets to presentations to websites. You can share desktops with little disruption, or make notes over all shared content.
Simultaneous two-way inking Allow in-room and remote participants to make annotations in digital ink on the whiteboard area or over any application, window, video or document. More than one participant can write at the same time.
Audio and video connection using Lync Fully engage with participants using the video and audio tools available through Lync.
Instant messaging and presence using Lync                                    View real-time presence information for contacts, start up conversations and easily add contacts to existing meetings so they can collaborate with meeting participants
Pin Lync function Keep your Lync window at your fingertips by pinning it to the SMART Meeting Pro toolbar. You'll be able to see your colleagues via video, chat with participants and access the Lync toolbars.
Simple interface An easy-to-use toolbar appears automatically when you power up your SMART Board interactive whiteboard or flat panel. Use it to toggle between your desktop and your display, capture screenshots and undo or redo work.


Write notes over any application or window and save them. Save notes directly into any application with ink tools – including PDF files. Or write notes in digital ink and save them as they are. Regardless of how you save your work, you can distribute files easily through e-mail or USB drives.

Interactive whiteboarding features

Use unlimited interactive whiteboard pages and easily jump from page to page. Use shapes, lines, text, undo and redo, resize, rotate and change object properties, and convert handwriting to text.

Integration with Microsoft Exchange**

Access attachments, attendee information and meeting details sent in the meeting request, and instantly e-mail meeting outcomes to all attendees at the end of the meeting.

**Requires Microsoft Exchange Server.

Meeting progress bar**

Elapsed meeting time is displayed and a five-minute notification lets you know the meeting is coming to an end.

**Requires Microsoft Exchange Server.

Extend meeting function**

Easily see if the room you are in is available, then add time to your meeting and automatically book resources with the touch of a button.

**Requires Microsoft Exchange Server.

End meeting function

One step ends the meeting, clears the SMART Board interactive whiteboard or flat panel for the next meeting, logs off the user and presents options for distributing meeting outcomes.

Business content gallery

An available gallery of images and tools enables users to access ready-made content rather than creating forms and templates from scratch. Use existing content or create your own and save it for reuse.

SMART GoWire auto-launch cable

Connect a guest laptop to the interactive display and you can run SMART Meeting Pro software with no installation required. It's perfect for workspaces that are not network-enabled or where guest laptops are frequently connected.
