SMART Board 800i interactive whiteboard system

With the SMART Board® 800i interactive whiteboard system, it's easy to make learning a natural, hands-on experience. Up to four students can collaborate and interact with lesson content anywhere on the interactive surface. The integrate system combines an interactive whiteboard with an ultra-short-throw projector. It also includes a multiuser Pen Tray and a control panel that enables teachers to manage all classroom technology products from the front of the classroom. All projectors are backed by our SMART Projector Care Plus program.

Multitouch – Taking collaboration to new heights

Now up to four students can collaborate without boundaries using four-touch interactivity. Students can use their fingers or a pen to write, draw and interact with content on the surface of the SMART Board interactive whiteboard, or two students working together can each use natural multitouch gestures. This means they can spend more time collaborating and less time waiting for their turn to work on the interactive surface. And there are no special tools or menus required – students can simply walk up to the SMART Board interactive whiteboard and immediately begin working together.

Freestyle interaction – Expanding the boundaries
of learning

With freestyle interaction, four students can work together anywhere on the surface without being restricted to a defined space or required to use a specific tool. And each can perform different actions at the same time – for example, two students can move objects around while another writes in digital ink.

Touch gestures – Putting the world at their fingertips

Using multitouch gestures, groups of students can interact with lesson content in new and exciting ways, which gives them a deeper, more interactive learning experience. They can use intuitive gestures such as toss, rotate and zoom, or use the gestures available with multitouch operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows 7 or Mac Snow Leopard.

Object awareness

Object awareness – Making it easy to interact

The object awareness feature makes using the 800 series a completely intuitive experience – the technology is virtually invisible. You can switch seamlessly between writing with a pen, erasing with the palm of your hand and moving objects with your fingers. There's no need to press buttons, access on-screen menus or replace tools in the Pen Tray.

SMART Notebook lesson activities

Access to a rich collection of learning resources

Teachers can access free, ready-to-use educational resources, including thousands of standards-correlated SMART Notebook lesson activities, anytime on the SMART Exchange website. They can also access multimedia content, including videos and 3D images, in the gallery of SMART Notebook collaborative learning software.


Multitouch experience

Up to four students can simultaneously write, perform mouse functions, erase, and manipulate and move objects on the interactive whiteboard surface – and no special tools are required.

Freestyle interaction

The system enables four students to instantly start working together without having to switch to a multiuser mode or work in confined areas. And they can individually complete actions, like writing in digital ink or moving objects with their fingers.

Object awareness

The 800i uses DViT (Digital Vision Touch) technology to identify when you switch between a finger, pen and eraser. You can also write with a pen, erase with a palm and move objects with a finger, without having to press buttons, access on-screen menus or replace tools in the Pen Tray.

Touch gestures

Two students working together can each use their palm for erasing and one or two fingers to perform gestures on objects, such as toss, zoom or rotate, and to interact within SMART Notebook software. The 800i has built-in support for multitouch operating systems, like Microsoft Windows 7 and Mac Snow Leopard.

SMART Notebook software

SMART Notebook sets the standard for creating, delivering and managing interactive lessons within a single application. It puts all your instructional materials at your fingertips, and allows you to save any notes or content you write during the lesson to share with students later on. A powerful and easy-to-use application, SMART Notebook software enables you to readily deliver interactive lessons that keep your students engaged and interested.

Multiuser Pen Tray

Pick up one of the pens or the eraser and the Pen Tray automatically detects which tool you've selected. Buttons on the Pen Tray select the color and activate the On-Screen Keyboard, right-click and help functions.

Modular design

The Pen Tray includes two wings on the side that allow you to add accessories, such as SMART projector controls.

Lockable pen option

Hold down a pen color button on the Pen Tray until the light flashes, and the lockable pen option will lock the interactive whiteboard into pen mode, so you can use any device and it will act as a pen. Early education students and students with special needs can use objects, such as tennis balls, to write on the surface.


Discover a responsive and accurate writing experience with SMART Ink. It smoothes out the appearance of the digital ink, which improves the legibility of your handwriting as you write over applications, websites and videos. The ink becomes an object that you can move and manipulate.

Save function

Capture your work to SMART Notebook collaborative learning software as a screen shot that you can edit, or save your notes directly into several software applications, including Microsoft Windows versions of PowerPoint, Word and Excel, Adobe Acrobat and Autodesk AutoCAD software.

Durable surface

The 800i has a low-gloss surface that is optimized for projection. The surface is compatible with dry-erase markers and is easily cleaned.

Quick start

With the 800i, 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 under 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 and document cameras. 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 option

Enjoy more room to work. The wide-format 885i model gives you 20% more working space than a standard interactive whiteboard – ideal for classrooms that use widescreen laptops and monitors. The widescreen option combines the SMART Board 885 interactive whiteboard with the SMART UF70w projector, which delivers a 16:10 aspect ratio and native WXGA (1280 x 800) widescreen resolution.

Shadow reduction

Reduce shadows and distractions with the ultra-short-throw SMART UF70 or short-throw SMART UF65 projector. Because these projectors mount directly above the SMART Board interactive whiteboard, they create fewer shadows behind the user, improving the visibility of images, videos and notes.

Alert broadcast system

Receive important messages instantly. Principals and other administrators can display alert messages on multiple 800i systems at the same time.

Image quality

Experience high levels of brightness and contrast with the SMART UF70 and SMART UF65 projectors. The UF65 delivers 2,000 lumens and a 2,000:1 contrast ratio at XGA (1040 x 768) resolution. The UF70 delivers 3,000 lumens and a 2,900:1 contrast ratio at XGA (1024 x 768) and WXGA (1280 x 800) resolution. Their true color quality enhances the crispness of video, images and websites from every position in the room, no matter the lighting conditions.

Simple installation

Install the 800i quickly and easily in any classroom. The projector mounts directly above the interactive whiteboard, with no complicated wiring or ceiling mounting required. The system's integrated components also ensure it is easy to maintain.

Filter free

Both projector options for the 800i offer a filter-free design, which eliminates the need for filter cleaning or replacement and reduces overall maintenance.

Network-enabled projector

Connect the projector to your school's network to remotely control and manage it through the web server or SNMP client. As a networked interactive whiteboard system, the 800i's asset management features enable you to control and manage the projector remotely

Long-lasting lamp

The 800i projector bulb lasts for 3,000 hours in standard mode and 5,000 hours in economy mode. And because the projector is network enabled, you will receive e-mail alerts for temperature warnings or when lamp life is running low.

Option to add sound

Add SMART Audio classroom amplification system or USB speakers to turn the 800i into a complete multimedia center.

Theft resistant

Feel secure with your technology investment – the protection features of the 800i make it a less attractive target for thieves. The projector head and base are attached, and because the 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.
