What are SMART Podiums?

SMART Podiums are interactive pen displays that you can connect to any computer through USB and the external monitor(RGB) ports.  They act as an external monitor, but also have inking functionality.  The inking functionality allows you to write over slides with digital ink, save your notes, access any website or multimedia file and project your work onto a large screen to give your audience a truly interactive experience.  SMART Podiums allow you the Tablet PC experience on any computer.
