A wireless option for the entire family of Smart Board interactive whiteboards — Smart Board, Rear Projection Smart Board and Smart Board for Plasma Displays — is now available from Smart Technologies Inc.. The complete wireless package includes two paired wireless radios with power supplies.
In September, Smart Technologies made its Smart Board software compatible with Mac OS X via a free update. The software works with Smart Board interactive whiteboards and Smart Sympodium interactive lecterns.
For its wireless efforts, Smart uses IEEE 802.11b technology, the wireless networking standard utilized by Apple in its AirPort products. Traditionally, the Smart Board interactive whiteboard connected to a computer using a USB or serial cable. The wireless option is currently available at a suggested list price of US$399.
