CALGARY, June 10, 2015 /CNW/ - Come see SMART Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: SMT) (TSX: SMA), an innovator and leading provider of collaboration solutions, at InfoComm 2015, which takes place June 17 – 19 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

This year, SMART is featuring the cleverest member of the SMART kapp® family – SMART kapp iQ™. SMART kapp iQ is the definitive, all-in-one natural collaboration display. It is a stylish, sleek, Ultra HD interactive flat panel that combines the simplicity of the original SMART kapp with the incredible multiway, multi-device, multi-location collaboration capabilities that customers have been asking for. SMART kapp iQ also features all of SMART's market-leading, patented touch technology. 

"We all want simple devices that are genuinely walk-up-and-use and that allow us to naturally work the way we want to. SMART kapp iQ takes simplicity, ease of use and collaboration to a wonderful new level," said Neil Gaydon, president and CEO, SMART Technologies. "SMART kapp iQ offers the power of a 4K display with full presentation capabilities, and at the same time, it delivers instant, simple, and intuitive white-boarding in real-time, with multiway sharing on any device.

"We are thrilled to show SMART kapp iQ at InfoComm, just one year after we reinvented the dry-erase board with the introduction of SMART kapp," continued Gaydon. "SMART kapp iQ will have this same impact on the less intelligent displays found in most meeting rooms, heralding a new era of natural collaborative displays."

SMART will also be showing its full portfolio of kapp products in its booth at InfoComm (no. 1687). Reception to SMART kapp has been tremendous – it has won multiple awards and earned prestigious recognition around the globe. Originally offered in a 42-inch size, SMART now also offers an 84-inch version of kapp.

Unified Communications Solutions
InfoComm also offers a chance to get up close and personal with the SMART Room System™ for Microsoft® Lync and Skype® for Business. This integrated hardware solution combines touch-enabled displays with an HD video camera, microphones and speakers to enable rich audio, video and data collaboration. The newest release of the SMART Room System features SMART's unique Interactive Sharing, enabling dual touch and inking capabilities on any industry application and saving in its original format within the meeting. Competitive solutions allow inking only within the Lync Whiteboard or on Microsoft PowerPoint.

Interactive Educational Sessions
Experts from SMART Technologies will also participate in a number of panels hosted by the IMCCA. All sessions take place in Rooms W314 and W315.
