SMART Technologies used InfoComm to launch SMART kapp, a new digital capture board that has the easiness of a dry erase board combined with advanced collaboration features.
While SMART claims that kapp is just as easy and intuitive to use as a dry-erase board, it allows users to write, draw, diagram and brainstorm using an ink marker, just as they would with a dry-erase board. But with SMART kapp, co-workers and clients can follow the process in real-time, where everything appears on their digital devices. The work is simply saved with SMART’s software and then as a final product as PDFs or JPEGs and then easily shared with anyone, anywhere, instantly.
The secret to being able to capture, save and share content is in the SMART kapp app. Currently available as a free download for iOS and Android users (with Windows mobile support coming soon), the SMART kapp app enables users to pair their tablets or smartphones to a SMART kapp board with a scan of its unique QR code or a tap of its NFC tag. The app activates live web-sharing with up to five users, access to the snapshot library, PDF and JPEG save and share, and Evernote. Later this year, SMART will launch subscription services within the app which open up advanced features for cloud collaboration. It will include live web sharing with PIN protection, a large number of concurrent web viewers, and advanced search and index tools to get even more out of SMART kapp snapshots.
SMART kapp will list for $899 MSRP for a 42” SMART kapp (a larger size board will be available later in the year) and complete specs are here.
