SMART launches plug-n-play multi-device collaboration solution
By Brianna Crandall, October 5, 2015—SMART Technologies Inc., an innovator and leading provider of collaboration solutions, announced its SMART kapp iQ this summer. The most advanced member of the successful SMART kapp product family, kapp iQ is a sleek, ultra-high-definition display that enables game-changing collaboration for meeting rooms, breakout spaces, offices and classrooms. SMART kapp iQ combines the simplicity of the "walk-up-and-use" practice of the original SMART kapp whiteboard with a multi-way, multi-device collaborative experience.
Like the original SMART kapp, SMART kapp iQ simply connects via any Android or iOS device. Users can then invite any Web-enabled device to join for real-time collaboration. Anything written on the display can be shared in real time with anyone, anywhere in the world. The magic with SMART kapp iQ is that participants can collaborate and contribute back by making notes on their devices that immediately display in the collaboration session — making it the only multi-way, interactive display that combines the simplicity of a traditional whiteboard with the power of an ultra-high-definition display, says the company.
This is accomplished without the need for information technology (IT) department involvement or the need to connect to a corporate network, meaning SMART kapp iQ is reportedly less costly to maintain than most front-of-the-room displays. And like its predecessor, SMART kapp iQ uses the existing SMART kapp app, but with upcoming iQ premium features, such as digital inking over content. In addition, because SMART kapp iQ uses the same panel technology as the SMART Board 6000 series, many existing customers will be able to retrofit their boards to acquire the power of kapp iQ.

SMART kapp iQ, winner of a Gold Stevie Award for the Best New Product of the Year — Business-to-Business category — in the 12th annual International Business Awards (IBAs), is available now in two sizes, a 55" model and a 65" model.
