SMART Technologies Launches 84″ kapp Along with New Premium Services

smartkapp84-0115On the heels of last week’s Microsoft Surface Hub 84-inch multi-touch collaboration board announcement, SMART Technologies has launched its own 84” product with the kapp 84. SMART is also announcing something called SMART kapp Premium Services, which enables SMART kapp app users to unlock a range of enhanced features to the already revolutionary SMART kapp board.

Upgrading from the free SMART kapp mobile application to the premium version of kapp enables users to extend the number of concurrent remote participants connected to a session to 250, offers additional security features, and allows for the creation of password-protected reusable links, which enables meeting hosts to readily provide a link for recurring or ad-hoc meetings. SMART kapp Premium Services are available today in the latest version of the SMART kapp app.

In addition, the company is now accepting pre-orders for its upcoming 84” kapp digital capture board. This next-generation of SMART kapp offers all the features of the original kapp digital capture board but with a much larger footprint that is similar in size to a standard-size meeting room whiteboard.

A remarkable transformation from the dull, outdated dry-erase board or flip chart, SMART kapp combines true ease of use with the ability to capture, save and share work in real time on any device, anywhere in the world.

SMART kapp Premium Services are available now directly from the kapp app. Pricing for Premium Services is $1.99 per month or $19.99 per year in the U.S., and users can cancel at any time.

SMART kapp 84 is available for pre-order today here for North America and through Westcoast in the U.K. Availability for Germany, Switzerland and Austria is planned for later this quarter. The MSRP for kapp 84 is $1,199 in the U.S. and £849 in the U.K. Pre-orders qualify for a promotional price of $999 in the U.S and £699 in the U.K.
