Team Meetings and Briefings
The SMART Board™ interactive whiteboard combines the simplicity of a whiteboard with the power of a computer. The interactive whiteboard’s large, touch-enabled surface enables you to write in digital ink with your finger or a pen over applications, websites and videos.
Powerful collaboration generates numerous ideas and decisions – with SMART solutions, you can easily control applications from the interactive whiteboard, capture your meeting notes and materials. After a debriefing with local and remote participants, notes can be sorted into key categories and circulated to participants in seconds. Without the need to take individual notes, participants in meeting and briefings can focus on critical information and make key decisions.
SMART products add a visual, interactive dimension to the training experience offering the trainer the ability to instantly draw attention to key concepts, add crucial information, access multimedia components and add relevant notes. This is especially useful and essential in distance learning situations where participant engagement is challenging as well as for creating simulation-style components.
With an interactive whiteboard, trainers can visually demonstrate procedures, write over animations and clarify instructions by making notes in digital ink sharing knowledge becomes easier than ever. Remote participants become even more engaged in the training session when SMART Response Assessment is introduced. Users can write notes over files in digital ink, view remote screens and add their own contributions to the presentation with such devices as SMART Podiums and SMART Response Systems. SMART solutions ensure everyone can see, hear and participate in enhanced experiential learning, thus moving beyond passive reading and listening.
Emergency Response Management
In a crisis situation, teams can collaborate in minutes. Using automated data-sharing capabilities, local and remote participants stationed in emergency operation centers, incident command posts or mobile command centers can work together as if they were in the same room. To ensure easy integration with your existing products, SMART also offers enhanced support for a number of third-party conferencing applications.
Clear communication when it counts: Teams can clearly communicate, disseminate information and engage in real-time discussions with other responders, jurisdictional experts and government departments.
Using integrated data and voice sharing, and interactive displays, teams can quickly connect with critical resources and stakeholders anywhere. SMART solutions are trusted by many federal, state and local first responder organizations, including fire, police and EMS.
