An integrated solution

All of the room components are designed to work together. This creates a single integrated solution for audio, video and data collaboration that simplifies installation, support and ensures the components function as a single system.

Systems designed for any room

SMART offers 5 different sizes of room systems designed for 2 to 16 people and ranging from 100 to 300 square feet. Systems feature 55″, 70″ and 84″ displays.

Proximity detection

The interactive display will automatically turn on when it detects motion in the room. This saves energy costs when not in use and allows quick access to the technology when meetings start.

Wide angle camera

SMART’s camera features a 109 degree field of view (the largest available for a Lync Room System) allowing remote users to see the entire room without the need for pan/tilt/zoom functionality.

National Videoconferencing

SMART’s camera reduces eye gaze, making remote and in-room participants feel as though they are looking each other in the eye.

Object Awareness

The SMART display automatically detects a finger or a pen without special mode switches or buttons and allows users to erase ink on the display with their palm.

Administrative Console

The large 11″ room control lets users change the screen layout, display presentation content and email notes at the end of the meeting.

Instantaneous Startup

Start your meeting with one touch.

Microsoft Lync interface

Users who know Microsoft Lync will find it easy and intuitive to use the SMART Room System. It maintains the Microsoft Lync interface they are familiar with.

Interactive Sharing

Interactive Sharing expands collaboration capabilities beyond PowerPoint and the Lync Whiteboard by adding multi-touch and inking over any content within the SMART Room System meeting room.
