SMART delivers an integrated solution of hardware, software and services designed for superior performance and ease of use, and remains a world leader in interactive displays.
Engage students with interactive technology while simplifying implementation – choose the SMART Board® 480iv interactive whiteboard system. The affordable 480iv combines a SMART Board interactive whiteboard and a SMART UF75 projector for a complete system that is easy to install and manage.
An integrated system with exceptional value
The SMART Board 480iv interactive whiteboard system is easy to start up and control, so teachers can begin teaching right away. The integrated SMART UF75 projector limits shadows and projects a quality image, making visuals crisp and bright. And because the projector is located directly above the interactive whiteboard, the 480iv fits in virtually any classroom.
Like all SMART Board interactive whiteboards, the 480iv has a large, touch-enabled surface that allows teachers and students to write in digital ink, erase, move objects and control applications with a finger or pen.
The 480iv also comes with SMART Notebook collaborative learning software, which helps teachers create, deliver and manage high-impact interactive lesson activities. With this powerful software, teachers can capture notes, screenshots, images and videos to a single file – making it easy to enhance lesson material.
Delivering dynamic lessons is easy with the SMART Board 480iv interactive whiteboard system. Teachers can present material featuring large, vibrant images. Kinesthetic and visual learners will benefit from interacting with lesson content – moving letters, numbers, words and pictures with their fingers. And students with special needs benefit by being able to see, read and manipulate information more easily.
Discover free, ready-to-use educational resources on the SMART Exchange website. This vibrant online community makes it easy for teachers to quickly find, evaluate, download and share a variety of classroom-relevant content, including thousands of standards-correlated SMART Notebook lesson activities. They can connect with colleagues in their districts or around the globe to exchange lesson activities, ideas, insights and success stories.
Teachers can also add flexibility to curricula by using the 480iv to access the Internet or integrate multimedia content. They can explore a website with their students, give a science presentation or take their class on a virtual field trip without ever leaving the interactive whiteboard. Because it works with a variety of multimedia content and file types, the SMART Board interactive whiteboard system can help teachers engage students by making learning more dynamic.
Teachers and students can write, erase or perform mouse functions by touching the SMART Board interactive whiteboard with a finger or a pen – no proprietary tools are required.
SMART Notebook collaborative learning software included
SMART Board interactive whiteboards come with SMART Notebook collaborative learning software, which sets the standard for creating, delivering and managing interactive lesson activities within a single application. The software puts instructional materials at teachers’ fingertips and allows them to save any notes or content written during a lesson to share with students later. Powerful and easy to use, SMART Notebook software enables teachers to readily deliver interactive lesson activities that keep students engaged and interested.
Teachers can capture work to SMART Notebook software as a screenshot they can edit, or save notes directly into several software applications, including Microsoft Windows versions of PowerPoint, Word and Excel, as well as Adobe Acrobat and AutoCAD software.
The SMART UF75 projector can be connected to a school’s IP network and remotely controlled and managed through the web server or SNMP client.
The SMART UF75 projector is mounted directly above the interactive whiteboard, so any classroom can accommodate the 480iv without needing complicated wiring or ceiling mounting.
Improved lamp life
The SMART UF75 projector bulb lasts for 4,500 hours in standard mode and 6,000 hours in economy mode. And because the projector is network enabled, staff will receive e-mail alerts for temperature warnings or when lamp life is running low.
The SMART UF75 projector has a powerful lamp and a high contrast ratio, so images are never washed out. Its true-color quality enhances the crispness of video, images and websites from every position in the room, regardless of lighting conditions.
The SMART UF75 projector limits shadows and distractions. Because this boom-mounted, short-throw projector is located directly above the SMART Board interactive whiteboard, it creates fewer shadows behind the user, improving the visibility of images, videos and notes.
The 480iv has a hard-coated steel surface that is durable, optimized for projection, compatible with dry-erase markers and easily cleaned with whiteboard cleaner.
The filter-free design of the SMART UF75 projector eliminates the need for filter cleaning or replacement.
Choices to suit students
The SMATY Audio classroom amplification system or USB speakers can be added to the 480iv, turning the system into a complete multimedia center. And the SMART Height-Adjustable Wall Mount enables teachers to easily lower the interactive whiteboard system for shorter students or raise it for themselves and taller students.
