TMO at MWSF - SMART Shows New Sympodium ID250 Interactive Display [CORRECTED]

by , 12:45 PM EST, January 13th, 2005

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- SMART, maker of interactive technology products such as the SMART Board interactive whiteboard, announced the release of the Sympodium ID250 interactive pen display at this week's Macworld Expo show.

The ID250 is a 15" LCD display, but it can also act as an input device, thanks to a battery-free tethered pen. This input ability allows the control of applications, writing of notes in digital ink, and just about anything you can do with a mouse.

The built-in stand allows placement on a podium, desk or table so presenters can face their audience.

Sympodium products have used at events such as English premier League Soccer and Euro Cup 2004 Soccer, and on the popular CSI TV show.
