Transcript of David Martin and Nancy Knowlton with the Smart Board
The First Smart Board
How It Works
The Beginning of the Smart Board
There are two founders for the SMART Technologies Company. David Martin, who is the Co-founder, Director, chairman and was a CEO of this company. Nancy Knowlton who is also a co-founder, Director, vice-chair and was and a CEO. These two individuals founded SMART technologies in 1987. They are creative, smart, and technological to build technology that helps students all around the world to increase their learning skills and achieve their goals in life.
Smart Technologies introduced the first Smart Board interactive whiteboard in 1991.
It was the first interactive whiteboard to provide touch control of computer applications and annotation over standard Microsoft Windows applications.
In 2003, Smart developed and later patented DViT (Digital Vision Touch) technology.
This camera-based touch technology for interactive whiteboards and interactive displays uses digital cameras and proprietary software and firmware to detect finger or pen contact with the screen.
That contact is then interpreted as finger or pen activity.
