With the 685ix2, your computer, projector and SMART Board interactive whiteboard are all connected, so you can turn the entire system on and off quickly with the push of a single button – everything powers up in 60 seconds.
Front-of-room centralized control
Switch between all your audiovisual devices directly from the extended control panel. The panel provides centralized control of your classroom technology, including DVD players, digital cameras, document cameras and VCRs. You can move from a website to a video documentary to a review question, quickly and seamlessly. The extended control panel also has a dual-USB port that enables you to connect two computers to the SMART Board interactive whiteboard and easily switch between them as required.
Widescreen interactive whiteboard
Access 20% more working space than a standard interactive whiteboard system with the 685ix2. Ideal for classrooms using widescreen laptops and monitors, the system has an 87" (221 cm) interactive whiteboard and an ultra-short-throw projector that offers a 16:10 aspect ratio and native WXGA (1,280 x 800) widescreen resolution. You can attach a high-definition camcorder, Blu-ray Disc player or widescreen laptop to the extended control panel to give your students a true-to-life multimedia experience, without the distractions of letterboxing or distortion.
Virtually shadow and glare free
Compared to longer throw projectors that are mounted on ceilings or walls, the SMART UX80 creates virtually no shadows or glare. This makes it easier for students to see images on the interactive whiteboard, and increases classroom productivity by reducing unwanted distractions.
Superior image quality
Experience superior image quality with the 685ix2. The SMART UX80 projector uses Texas Instruments' BrilliantColor technology to produce high levels of brightness and contrast. Video, data and lesson files will look crisp and bright from every position in the room.
Make precise projector alignment a snap – the 685ix2 includes a multiaxis, adjustable wall mount. The projector is mounted directly above the interactive whiteboard, so virtually any classroom can accommodate the 685ix2 without needing complicated wiring or ceiling mounting. The system's integrated elements also ensure it is easy to maintain.
The filter-free design of the SMART UX80 projector eliminates the need for filter cleaning or replacement.
No color decay
Rely on the color quality of the SMART UX80. The projector’s DLP engine with BrilliantColor technology makes the 685ix2 practically immune to color decay, producing a vibrant image, even after years of use.
Connect the SMART UX80 projector to your school's IP network to send and receive commands to and from the web server or SNMP client. As a networked interactive whiteboard system, the 685ix2 has asset management features that enable you to control and manage the projector remotely.
Be confident in the reliability of your projector lamp – the SMART UX80 lasts for 3,000 hours in standard mode and 4,000 hours in economy mode.
Option to add sound
The 685ix2's resilient, hard-coated, polyester front sheet is secured over a robust aluminum composite backboard. The surface is tear-proof, optimized for projection, compatible with dry-erase markers and easily cleaned. With an incredibly low return merchandise authorization (RMA) rate of less than 0.01%, SMART Board interactive whiteboards may be the toughest interactive whiteboards on the market. All SMART Board interactive whiteboards are rigorously tested, designed and produced in an ISO 9001 certified facility.
Feel secure with your technology investment – the protection features of the 685ix2 make it a less attractive target for thieves. The projector head, boom and base are all attached, and because the SMART UX80 projector has no buttons, it is rendered inoperable if removed from the extended control panel. The Kensington cable lock slot and padlock loop are additional visual and physical theft deterrents.
