SMART Board Software

What is SMART Board Software?

This is the software designed to configure and run the SMART Board from the user's desktop. The Smart Board is a line of interactive whiteboard that operates as part of a system that includes the interactive whiteboard, a computer, a projector and whiteboarding software - either Smart Notebook collaborative learning software for education, or Smart Meeting Pro software for business. The whiteboard accepts touch input from a finger, pen or other solid object. The Smart Board interactive whiteboard uses DViT (Digital Vision Touch) technology to detect and respond to touch interactions on the interactive whiteboard surface.


The most used version is, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins.
