Having scheduling problems? Finding it hard to get everyone you need in a meeting all at the same time? Having to fork out for travel expenses for your employee overseas? Well SMART might just have the solution you’re looking for.

What is the SMART Kapp IQ?

“The SMART Kapp IQ is an ultra HD display built in whiteboard that enables multi-way inking between any combination of devices, anywhere in the world – simultaneously”*.

In other words, the SMART Kapp IQ is a whiteboard that can not only display your presentations, graphs and spreadsheets to a high quality but can also be used as a collaboration tool between yourself, your employees – remote and otherwise. It enables your employees to link into the SMART Kapp device via their own devices, such as laptops, smart phones, tablets or other SMART Kapp displays. Not only are they able to see your notes but are also able to contribute to the presentation via their own devices.

So…what does it do exactly?

  • You are able to share notes with up to 250 people worldwide.
  • Touch, write, swipe and control the Kapp IQ with your finger or a pen.
  • Save and organise notes on your devices.
  • Smoothly continue where you left off.
  • Send notes as PDFs or JPEGs.
  • Protect any sensitive work with encrypted connections.
  • Encourage active engagement within the workforce.
  • Colour-coding helps to differentiate between each individual person’s contributions to the notes.
  • Multi-way inking allows remote participants to write, save and share on the device in real-time.
  • Employees connect their device via an app which is available through the IPhone App Store or Google Play.

Fourth Steljes SHAPE event hits Oxford

shape2013logoResellers and integrators congregated at the F1 Williams Conference Centre last week to be educated on all things Smart. With technical training available for Smart products and AMX’s RPM (Rapid ProjectMaker) software, engineers are busy keeping up to date with the latest installation opportunities. The vendor village offered a closer look into some of the equipment discussed in the seminars throughout the day with Steljes and their partners in full force to educate.

The seminars throughout the day offered a vast range of ideas for how to incorporate collaborative solutions and although we’re aware of its uses in the education sector, the corporate talk was much more eye opening. With Microsoft Lync becoming a popular factor of the modern office, Smart’s own software Meeting Pro manages to combine with this product’s advantages for a seamless meeting. After shocking statistics including the fact that 28% of workers find meetings to be “pointless” being shared, it is understandable that companies want to find ways to save time and money on travel and sometimes video conferencing just won’t do. The combination of these programmes helps create not only a system for video and audio, but also for collaboration, so anyone involved in the meeting can annotate and make notes in real time and save and send where necessary. Check out our feature on Meeting Pro coming soon.

BenQ’s “Using iPads in the Classroom” showed a short demonstration of the progressively favoured DisplayNote software, however due to internet problems the seminar was cut short. The Steljes training team offered a first glance of their training portal concept for teachers which will be available soon. Despite the worries that interactive whiteboards were losing the battle against sleeker touchscreen LCDs, Smart are far from getting left behind in the collaborative market.
