SMART Technologies Updates SMART Board MX and 7000R

SMART Board MX series

SMART Technologies announced new updates on the company’s most popular products, including the SMART Board MX series — now also available for business customers as the SMART Board MX Pro series. SMART has also beefed up the SMART Board 7000R series and SMART Board 7000R Pro series.

The new SMART Board MX series and SMART Board MX Pro series provide all the interactive essentials and ease of use — this is the value-priced series, you may recall. It includes new HyPr Touch with IR and 20 touch points. Now, it’s ENERGY STAR certified in all sizes (65 inch, 75 inch, 86 inch).

The new SMART Board 7000R series and SMART Board 7000R Pro series, which come in 75 inch and 86 inch sizes, are the company’s high-end displays (where more precision writing and touch are needed and guest connectivity is integrated). HyPr Touch with EMR (electromagnetic resonance) technology is exclusive to this panel, which SMART says provides a smooth pen-on-paper feel with palm rejection and pressure-sensitive inking. The panel now has iQ Android experience built-in, and SMART has added USB-C, freeze frame abilities, ability to ink over any video output and support for up to 20 simultaneous touch points on both Windows and Mac.

Here’s an ISE 2020 video of the 7000R in action:

Also, new this November SMART is debuting SMART OPS PC modules with Windows 10 Pro computing in two processor options — Intel Core i5 and i7 vPro.
