Twenty-two years ago, SMART’s executive chairman and co-founder, David Martin, conceptualized the SMART Board interactive whiteboard executive chairman and co-founder, David Martin, conceptualized the SMART Board interactive whiteboard – the fi rst and most widely installed interactive whiteboard in the world. In 1991, the fi rst generation of the SMART Board interactive whiteboard was introduced. Currently in its sixth generation, the MART Board interactive whiteboard line has expanded to include models integrated with projectors and other tools. SMART’s focus has expanded to include a variety of supporting hardware, software and content to create complete classroom and meeting room solutions.
The SMART Board interactive whiteboard connects to a computer with a USB cable (older models use a serial  cable) and draws the power it needs from the computer. The SMART Board driver automatically starts when the computer is turned on, and the interactive whiteboard
becomes active once the driver is running. When you connect a digital projector to your computer, you can project the computer image onto the SMART Board interactive whiteboard. The SMART Board driver converts contact with the interactive whiteboard into mouse clicks or digital ink. This feature enables you to use your fi nger as a mouse or write overtop of applications. Simply by touching the large display, users can access and control any computer or multimedia application, including the Internet, CDs and DVDs, and write notes in digital ink and save their work to share later. The SMART Pen Tray automatically detects when a user picks up a pen or the eraser. Buttons activate the On-Screen Keyboard, right-click and help functions.
